Android 7.0 Nougat ROM for Galaxy S4! [JDCTeam]


Wow, Galaxy S4 is one of the first Samsung smartphones to receive red carpet treatment from the root community.  If you have a Galaxy S4, you can now install a fully-working Android 7.0 Nougat custom ROM through JDCTeam’s latest custom build.

Now, this is actually a pretty amazing build as everything except video recording works out of the box, you will be able to experience Android 7.0 Nougat before everyone else without having to buy a brand, new smartphone like LG V20.

The JDCTeam’s latest Android 7.0 Nougat ROM gives you all of the stock Android 7.0 features and yes, you can get new cats easily by activating the Nougat cat feeding feature by tapping on Android 7.0 a bunch of times.  Once activated, simply add some food to the empty dish and you will start collecting many cats!


For performance, I was able to score 33K on Antutu with Android 7.0 Nougat, which is slightly faster than Android 6.0 Marshmallow ROMs we have seen.  Under the hood, you will find various different battery optimizations which will save you a ton more battery life over running Lollipop or Marshmallow.

The ROM also comes with goodies like Dolby Atmos, SuperSU for root, Viper4Android for tweaking sound, and even STweaks app to tweak your CPU voltages.  Yes, this IS better than stock Android 7.0 on my Nexus 6P since it has more customizations.

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!

    Where can I download this ROM? The link on this page takes me to an advert and nothing else? I’m not going to sign up for a credit card ffs! I’d appreciate a bullshit free link to either the Nougat or Euphoria ROM for an S4 I9505
    Thanks in advance guys!

    Hi, i installed it on a S4 i9505.
    You need the latest TWRP, i tried version which i downloaded form this website, that one does not work, so before you update download the latest from the twrp website.
    Just a tip for anyone who wants to install

    @Sparkz at the download page scroll complete down, at the bottom there is the download link, don’t press the adverts 🙂

    The touch screen frreezes sometimes and I have to re start to get it working again . Any tips why ? I’m using the Canadian s4 . I installed the standard gaps could it be that I should use the other version ?

  17. Joe Smo says:

    So I guess no one has a fix for those that loose root. Odd all around since the dev says root is built in to this release. No update since the Sept release so I guess I’ll keep rocking 6.0.1

  18. Jafer sadik says:
