PACMan ROM for Galaxy S4! [AOKP/CM10.2/ParanoidAndroid All-In-One]

pacman-rom-galaxys4

For those of you looking to experience latest Android 4.3 with most features/customization, you will definitely have to try the PACMan ROM.

PACMan ROM is a hybrid custom ROM that mixes the best of AOKP, CM10.2, and ParanoidAndroid ROMs. It’s an “all-in-one” ROM that allows you to fully customize your UI/system using AOKP ROM Control, run your favorite apps in tablet mode using ParanoidAndroid Hybrid Settings, and even take advantage of CM10.2 new features like the Focal camera.

For Noobs: If you don’t know what AOKP ROM Control is, see our AOKP ROM Control Settings tutorial first.  If you don’t know what ParanoidAndroid Hybrid Settings is, see our ParanoidAndroid Hybrid Settings tutorial first.

Overall, the latest PACMan ROM nightly builds are stable and solid enough to run as daily driver while allowing you to enjoy the bleeding edge of Android 4.3.  If you are not satisfied with your current Android 4.3 experience (and you need more features than your brain can handle), give the latest PACMan ROM a test drive and let me know what you think!

          Even though Wicked has a few bugs. It’s still the best ROM out there in my opinion. Battery life is great on wicked and pretty much everything works . I was pushing 20 hours of battery with constant usage.
          Carbon and Wannam are both battery hogs!

    Anyone know if we can flash CWM on the AT&T MF3 firmware yet? Got my S4 replaced with the warranty a week ago, and it came with the update of course.

    I have flashed this ROM several times after formatting the entire system with TWRP and the ROM succesfully boots but after I reboot it gets stuck at the Samsung splash screen. BTW the phone is an M919, any ideas to a fix?

      I’ve had this issue with the recent Carbon ROM, but they seem to have resolved that issue with the last nightly update. The only trick I found was pulling the battery. So instead of rebooting, try a full shutdown instead.

    I am looking but root my Verizon galaxy s4. This will be my first time rooting a phone( I have done an HP touchpad).
    My question is this a good ROM for me to use? Seems to be some issues.

    I have tried this ROM twice over the last month using the nightly builds and its a fantastic ROM full of features, but it drains your battery like its like a mutha!

    From full charge after applying this ROM on my Galaxy S4, the battery depleted and as fully drained in two hours!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also massive issues with SDCARDS and ExFAT formatting, The card just dismounts randomly..

    Superb ROM, but needs a lot of work so if you apply be patient and have a charger cable with you ;-)

    Hey, I’ve been trying to get this ROM and working for a while now, but every time I flash it, it seems like everything in the CM 10.2 part of it force quits, from the keyboard and browser to even the settings menu. Can I have a little help? I really like the way it looks…

    This ROM promisses to be amazing some day… By now, it’s like a beautiul project still running… Tons of bugs and annoying reboots makes this a wrong choice by now. I’ve been using a paranoid distro in my S2 and it’s amazing… That’s why I choose PAC Man to my S4… It has the mainly features I’m already used BUTTT as I told, by now it’s just a project…I’ll be waiting to some bug fixes and maybe In the near future I’ll have it back to my baby lol. :) See ya

    Hi, can someone please tell me what is wrong with my phone. In every 4.3 rom that I try, the camera and the sim card aren’t working. Does someone know a fix for this?

    Loved the PacRom. Only problem is..NO MOBILE DATA. Installed it like 4 times with different custom recovery. Kept asking to reboot i9500 so mobile network could be available. Could make calls and receive SMSs, so it was not a SIM related issue. Moved back to another ROM and 3G data worked perfectly upon reboot.
