For this week’s AT&T, T-Mobile, Canadian, and GT-i9505 ROM of the week, check out Echoe ROM.
Based on the latest Android 4.3 leak for GT-i9505, Echoe ROM brings you the latest Android 4.3 TouchWiz to all AT&T, T-Mobile, Canadian, and GT-i9505 Galaxy S4 smartphones. (For T-Mobile, you will lose WiFi-calling, so if you absolutely need that stick with another T-Mobile based custom ROM.)
With Android 4.3, you will get some performance/battery boost and if you do use a Galaxy Gear smartwatch, this ROM will make your Galaxy S4 fully capable to run Gear Manager app.
Other notable features on Echoe ROM include Ausdim Kernel (which is built for Android 4.3 TouchWiz) with support up to 2.16Ghz overclocking, ex-fat support for microSD cards, screen-off torch (Settings->My Device->Display->Torchlight), pop-up browser from Note 2, X4Video player from Xperia Z, Android 4.3 PhotoSphere camera and more.
Overall, this is the best Android 4.3-based TouchWiz ROM I have tried so far, so if you want to try out the latest Android 4.3 TouchWiz today (instead of waiting for months for Samsung to push one out for your S4), give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
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!
