aicp-rom-galaxys4

For this week’s Galaxy S4 ROM of the Week, check out AICP ROM, available for all Galaxy S4 variants including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Cricket, CSpire, US Cellular, Canadian, GT-i9505, and GT-i9500.

Based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, AICP ROM is an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) featuring full AOKP ROM Control Settings along with other AOSP features.

Some notable AOSP features include OmniSwitch, custom animations, Active Display, custom tile colors, Appbar, Gesture Anywhere, Connection Manager, and some more.

Also included is the latest Google camera, which is 100% working on this ROM along with PhotoSphere and Panorama feature.

I’ve been following AICP ROM for quite awhile now and have to say that their latest releases have been nearly perfect in terms of speed, battery life, and performance.  If you are looking for the best AOSP ROM “right now”, this could definitely be it so give it a test drive over the week(end) and do let me know what you think!

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.

How to Install Custom ROMs

First, you will need to root your device, if it is not rooted yet, follow our root tutorial and root your phone.

Once rooted, you should have TWRP installed on your phone. Installation of a custom ROM is easy if you learn the basic of it. If you don't know how to install custom ROMs using TWRP recovery, see our tutorial on How to Install Custom ROM using TWRP!

      Hi yR,

      Yes you will loose all your TW features since this is AOSP. You should install a TW custom rom you like all these features. The ROM I’m running is Insane Kit Kat V8 NB4 which is base on TW it has all the Features you mentioned. Hope this helps!
