For this week’s ROM of the week for AT&T, T-Mobile, Canadian, and GT-i9505, check out BobCat ROM.
Based on GT-i9505 firmware, BobCat ROM brings you a custom theme with lots of customization.
UPDATE: BobCat ROM version 5.1 is OUT, CLICK HERE to see it instead of this!!!
First, BobCat ROM gives you native hotspot tethering (since all GT-i9505 ROMs support this out of the box) and I had not trouble using it on T-Mobile without any tinkering (and also 4G LTE working fine). Also you will be able to easily move your favorite apps to SD card since this ROM comes with firmware that supports the latest App2SD by Samsung.
Second, you will find a load of add-ons/MODs through its UpdateMe ROM app found in Settings allowing you to download the removed bloatware, install 3MINIT framework (for additional UI mods), change dropdown graphics (default is blue Android Andy guy), install new apps, and lots more.
Third, BobCat ROM brings you UI customization through Nottach app, which allows you to customize everything from status bar, battery icons, lockscreen, and even enable Volume-up flashlight when screen is off. (You can also get this app separately for most S4 custom ROMs btw, see here.)
Overall, this ROM is packed with lots of features, apps, and only your imagination is the limit to how much customization you can do to your S4. If you are looking for such a custom ROM, definitely check out BobCat ROM this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
