For this week’s Sprint Galaxy S4 SPH-L720 ROM of the Week, check out the latest NegaLite ROM by XDA user Negamann303, now available in full Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
I have been following NegaLite ROM since the days of having my ol’ Evo 3D, and from my experience, NegaLite ROM has always been one of the most stable with blazing performance and great battery life. That alone is probably good enough reason to install this custom ROM but let me explain some of the main core features.
NegaLite ROM comes completely de-bloated, with an emphasis on performance out of the box, it even comes with its own NegaLite kernel, allowing you to easily choose overclocking speeds during its AROMA graphical installer. Also, you can use 3rd-party CPU apps (I recommend Trickster Mod app on Play Store) to manually adjust your CPU/GPU clock rates.
Inside NegaLite ROM, you will find its trademarked blue theme, which is just perfectly integrated along with custom system animations, which adds to your daily experience. And of course, KNOX and other hateful bloatware have been removed completely.
Other notable features include native hotspot mod, 1% battery mod, 4-way reboot, lockscreen sound mod, Viper4Android, and some more.
Overall, you won’t find this ROM filled with needless features/customization but just the ones you need while performance is simply excellent along with boosted battery life. If you have not tried this custom ROM and you are looking for a good, solid TouchWiz-based ROM, definitely give the latest NegaLite ROM a try and let me know what you think!
To install, reboot into recovery, make a backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, and reboot. For general installation tutorial, see our custom ROM installation guide.

What is a Custom ROM?
A custom ROM is a custom, modified operating system that you can install on your Android device. Basically it's like installing Windows OS on a Macbook. By installing a custom ROM, you can bypass stock factory settings like locked hotspot tether, install new Android versions early, or even convert your phone into another OS.
With a custom ROM, you can really maximize the capabilities of your smartphone by adding custom features that have been developed by open source developers.
