Gummy ROM for Galaxy S4! [Android 4.4.4]

gummy-rom-galaxys4-android4.4.4

For this week’s AOSP ROM of the Week, check out Gummy ROM!

Latest stable Gummy ROM is out dubbed “M3”, which will give you stability of milestone release along with everything working out of the box.  Gummy ROM has always been one of my favorite ROMs, what I like about it is that it comes with a slew of great customization/tweaks along with great battery life/performance.

Out of the box, you will find one of the fastest UI out there.  There’s plenty AOSP ROMs out there but Gummy ROM is definitely on my Top 5 list of the best AOSP custom ROMs.  Although I really love CM11 ROM and have been enjoying on many of my phones for awhile, I find Gummy ROM is a lot more fun for tweaking your phone to the fullest with stuff like advanced Power Menu options, lockscreen notifications, etc…etc…

Overall, Gummy ROM is one of the best choices if you are looking to be on the latest and greatest Android 4.4.4 with many ways to customize your phone just the way you like it.  So, definitely give Gummy ROM a try this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

THIS ROM DOES NOT WORK WITH SAFESTRAP!!!

Make sure you are using CWM v.6.0.4.3 or higher to install Android 4.4.2/4.4.3/4.4.4 KitKat 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.

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, install Conversion Kit, 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:

Q: My 3G/4G LTE data is not working!!!
A: See How to Fix 3G/4G LTE data by Manually Setting APN on Android!

Q: I don’t have Play Store nor any of the Google apps!
A: You forgot to install Gapps, reboot into recovery and install it! (See above for download.)

Q: The ROM is not booting or gets force closes upon boot!
A: Try formatting /system and re-install ROM, sometimes the system partition gets corrupt and you may have to try 2 or 3 times before the ROM boots.  Also, you can try installing the ROM first, then boot.  Once everything is booted okay, then reboot into recovery and install Gapps.  (Also try micro or stock Gapps as sometimes that fixes the issue too.)

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!

    Hi, can i install this ROM on i9505 international S4?

    Not reading my 64gb sd card.

      What I had to do, was save my data on my pc, then insert the card to the pc, format it to NTFS, then put it back in the phone. The phone will recognize the card. After that, put your data back on your card. I used an sd card reader to connect to the pc (makes transferring the data a lot faster).

    My phone was in the water for about 10 minutes. After 4 days he woke up. It looks like everything works ok. The only problem that I have, is that my pc doesn’t recognise the phone. My wife has also an 9505 and my pc recognizes that phone without any problem. So my biggest problem is that I cannot use Odin. Is that a problem in the futere?

  4. Sean says:

    Is there a fix for the native hotspot? I can’t find any mods for the new kitkat 4.4.4

  5. lue says:

    Hey max, this rom is the best I have used. However, WiFi hotspot/tether does not work. I have the sprint s4. Is there a fix?

    I flashed with cwm
    Flashed the gapp recommend.

    Again, hotspot is the only issue.
