For this week’s T-Mobile Galaxy S4 ROM of the week, check out latest version of Wicked ROM V7. You can also install this ROM on AT&T, Canadian, or GT-i9505 Galaxy S4s.
Latest Wicked ROM V7 features additional stock and white theme in AROMA installer, 3 additional cameras to choose from (Moto X, Android 4.3 PhotoSphere, Focal), and 4 different music players including stock Samsung, MIUI, Apollo, and Sony Walkman.
Since this is a T-Mobile-based custom ROM, you will not have latest App2SD and HDR camera offered by latest Samsung firmwares. (If you absolutely need them, you can install another ROM.)
Wicked ROM features some great Nexus 7 transition animations along with “Wicked on Crack” speeds for your UI. It’s definitely super-fast and you will love the UI.
For launcher, you do have option of Launcher 8 with Windows theme, Xperia, 4×5 TouchWiz, or stock TouchWiz launcher. If you are into AOSP looks, Wicked ROM does also offer AOSP e-mail, calendar, and calculator apps.
Wicked ROM definitely has one of the coolest lockscreen themes around, allowing you to choose between stock, fire, shock, and blood along with some wicked boot-up/power-down animations.
Overall, Wicked ROM V7 is one of the best T-Mobile S4 custom ROMs out there (if not the best) so if you haven’t tried the latest version, give it a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

To install, reboot into recovery, make a backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, and reboot. For general installation tutorial, see our custom ROM installation guide.
For AT&T, I didn’t install loki_doki.zip and booted up fine so just a basic install should work fine.
For settings up LMT Pie Controls, see here.
I am currently running Wicked ROM V7 on my AT&T Galaxy S4 along with T-Mobile SIM card with both LTE and Wifi-Calling working, If you need such a thing, see our guide on How to Enable T-Mobile AWS Bands on AT&T Galaxy S4!
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!
