GPE Android 5.0.1 Lollipop ROM for Galaxy S4!

For those of you with a Qualcomm-based Galaxy S4, you are in luck this week as the GPE (Google Play Edition) 5.0.1 Lollipop ROM is available. This will work on the GT-i9505, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, and Canadian models.

For AT&T and Verizon S4, you do need to have loki’d device, if you have CWM or TWRP installed you are good to go (but DOES NOT WORK WITH SAFESTRAP!!!). This is also a custom version by XDA user Danvdh, who is an excellent ROM developer who has been making many ROMs for the last few years.

Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM + Root for Galaxy S4! [CM12 BETA]

For those of you wondering and waiting when Android 5.0 Lollipop will be here for the Galaxy S4, we have good news, it is already available!  The bad news?  It is still in beta, that means developers are still working out kinks.

For GT-i9500 users, this means everything working except 3G data, NFC, and camera.  For users with Qualcomm-based LTE S4 (like GT-i9505, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, US Cellular, Cricket, MetroPCS), everything works except NFC and camera.
