For this week’s ROM of the week for the T-Mobile Galaxy S4 SGH-M919, check out Death Star ROm.
Based on latest MDL TouchWiz Android 4.2.2 base, Death Star ROM features a blue theme, center clock, all apps enabled for multi-window, and 5×6 TouchWiz Launcher with scrolling wallpaper that’s been optimized for no lag.
I do like this ROM as I really dig the 5×6 launcher which is enabled for both your homescreen and app drawer. Also, multi-window enabled for all apps is fantastic since I can get any apps to run in full multi-window mode. Keyboard is also themed in black and blue.
UPDATE: You can actually remove the widgets from the launcher and then re-add them to make them look correct.
Overall, pretty nicely themed ROM with some great features, this ROM is going to get better as we go along and for those of you can’t wait, try it out this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

- Deviant Kernel (Init.d Support)

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.
