WanamLite ROM is now available for Galaxy S4 GT-i9500!
UPDATE: There’s a NEW version 2.0 out, CLICK HERE to see it instead of this!!!
UPDATE: 7/21/2013 Version 1.8 is out, which supports App2SD/HDR recording and comes with STweaks app.
One of the first custom ROMs available for the Galaxy S4 GT-i9500, WanamLite ROM is a proven ROM from XDA user Wanam who has been making solid and stable ROMs for many other Android smartphones like Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3.
Personally, this is one of my favorite ROMs on my other Android devices and it is now available for your Galaxy S4.
Since this is the very first version, you will not see as many features (as you will later down the road) but you still get cool stuff like Call Recording MOD, Adam kernel with tweaked CPU governor for better battery life, and all Samsung bloatware removed. (You can add them back easily by flashing removed apps zip file though.)
WanamLite ROM also ships with Adam kernel, which is pretty much stock kernel but with governor tweaks to give you extra, long battery life plus support for init.d scripts.
Other notable features include automatic SMS encoding with support for Arabic and other UTF-8 languages, disabled scrolling cache, enabled all languages, and more free RAM over stock ROM.
Also, since this is a stock-based ROM, you should be fine installing the ROM without doing data wipe/factory reset.
If you are itching to get a custom ROM on your Galaxy S4 GT-i9500, certainly give WanamLite a try this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

IMPORTANT: If you have microSD card in ExFat format, you must either install the stock kernel OR you can also format your microSD card as FAT32.
How to check your microSD card format? If you have a microSD reader or microSD-to-SD adapter, connect it to your computer and view “Properties” by right-clicking on your microSD card drive.
