Carbon ROM for Galaxy S4! [GT-i9505/AT&T/T-Mobile/Canadian][Android 5.1.1] - Page 2

Download Android 5.1 Gapps(DO NOT USE older Gapps, you will FC!!!)

*Note – For AT&T SGH-i337 or Verizon SCH-i545, you CANNOT USE SAFESTRAP, you must have CWM or TWRP recovery installed already!

Make sure you are using CWM v.6.0.4.3 or higher to install Android 5.0+ Lollipop ROMs! Also you can use TWRP v2.6.3.3 or higher.  You can update your CWM recovery using ROM Manager app on Play Store or TWRP Recovery using Goo Manager on Play Store.  If having trouble, you can update manually, see our CWM/TWRP Recovery for Galaxy S4.  For AT&T or Verizon with Loki, see How to Update with TWRP v2.8.4.0!

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, and reboot.  (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop or get force-closed keyboard error on boot, reboot into CWM recovery, go to Mounts & Storage->format /system.  For TWRP, go to Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Wipe /system.)

Q&A:

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!

    This is a sheet, I’ve been spent more days tryng to install a custom rom in this sheety cellphone than with a mini s4, or mini s3 and even a galaxy music. First I have AT&T model with Android 4.4.4. Fisrt I tried installing CWM trough Rom manager, then I reboot in recovery mode but I noticed It sucked because there wasn’t an option to install Custom Rom, then This trash of blog said that I had to use the loki method for AT&T version, I follow the video and I got an error, then in this same blog in other lines said I must not use LOKI Method with Androd 4.4.2+. Sheet!!!! I used safestrat method, but in Carbon ROM page there a warning advertising that SGH-I337 can not use Safestrat to install Carbon ROM ????? What the hell, I’m sick of your redaction, no one with comun sense understand your sheet blog.

    My model es Samsun Galaxy S4 AT&T with Android 4.4.4, I’ve rooted the cell, What the hell do I install to put a custom ROM in my cell??????
    xD
