For those of you with T-Mobile Galaxy S4 SGH-M919 or any Canadian Galaxy S4 models (Rogers, Telus, Bell), you are in luck as founder of CyanogenMod Steve Kondik has just made them available.
Now, these are totally “beta” versions so there may be some minor bugs and not a fully polished custom ROM like stable releases.
However, I did get to play around a bit and most of major features seem to be working well such as data, wifi, bluetooth, and camera.
If you have a T-Mobile or Canadian Galaxy S4, definitely give it a try and do let me know what you think. And for others, there should a CyanogenMod ROM coming to you shortly.
Make sure to make a backup ROM before installing so you can easily restore back if you encounter any problems.

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!
