For this week’s Verizon Galaxy S4 ROM of the week, check out HyperDrive ROM by XDA user Sbreen94.

Based on official Verizon firmware, the HyperDrive gives you a ton of more features over stock to give you that extra edge when showing off to your friends.

At the heart of HyperDrive ROM is the Hyperdrive Control app which allow you to get mods/add-ons through its HyperdriveOTA and fully customize your UI (such as clock, status bar, battery icon) using Custom Settings. Also included are some framework mods like Xposed App settings and Xposed Tweakbox (which allow you to add additional mods).

Other notable features include Hold-Menu button to kill app, NFC enabled on lockscreen, extended settings for MMS, extended settings for camera (higher bitrate camcorder along with volume shutter button option), extended browser settings (open up to 50 tabs!), Sony Bravia Engine, pop-up browser resizable to any size, screen-off playback YouTube app, and even some more.

Native hotspot app has been hacked (wifi tether working out of the box) so all you tether fans will be happy while multi-window has been enabled for all apps out of the box (no need to use Multi Window manager app).

Overall, I am impressed at the amount of great features that Sbreen94 has added to his impressive HyperDrive ROM in a short amount of time. Certainly, this is one of the best custom ROMs you can install on your Verizon Galaxy S4 right now. So, give it a try 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!

      Settings
      hyperdrive control
      custom mods
      ui mods
      flash blink
      then preferences you should see incoming calls checked. Uncheck it to stop the camera from flashing.

  4. Great ROM- love all the tweeks; but I seemed to have lost the ability to wake up my phone with the home button. Anyone know how to enable the home key to wake the phone?

    installed SL6.zip yesterday using CWM recovery and everything went fine without issues. Big change this version contains is AROMA GUI installer where you can select which pkg you want to install & then final ROM is customized as per your selection. GUI is not very smooth so be careful in your selection. whole process took less than 10 min. First thing I noticed was speed in launching the applications. this ROM still has some samsung bloatware like watchon, Allshare, etc which some users like but i dont so used Titanium to un-install. Over all rating is like this ROM better than CM10.

    I follow your videos and everything work out perfect… expect… memory space…
    I have 16GB S4 and there is a new rom from hyperdrive and I cant download it because I don’t have enough space on S4… somehow there is 7 GB in system memory… what can I do to minimalize that.. I don’t even have anything installed on it jet and its saying I got 700MB left… and what app are you using for resolution change like on yours S4…?

  7. Mike says:

    Any chance this will be made available for Sprint?? (S4 SPH-L720)

    Great ROM! But one thing… upon bootup, the battery and all other icons are missing in the status bar. Mine shows a “-1” where the battery indicator should be and then the time next to that. So at the top, all I get upon bootup and even after initially going past the lock screen is something like: “-1 01:00pm”.

    The only thing which corrects this is after the lock screen, pulling down and back up the status bar tab. Then all the icons show as per normal.

    This certainly isn’t reflective of the rest of the ROM, but it sure stands out as it’s the first thing one sees after every boot. Perhaps the developer can look into this and correct???

    I’m having a problem with Youtube in Hyperdrive 10. I keep getting a 404 error when I open the program, anybody else getting this issue?

  10. John says:

    I absolutely love all the features in HyperDrive. My only question is that there are a couple items upon install that I chose which I would like to revert but can not figure out how.

    1. I chose HypeRed for the colors and want to go to the Galaxy option
    2. I chose the loud hack for the volume and want to go standard.

    How can I go back to change these, or do I need to go back and then re-install the software with the different options?

    Thanks

  11. Donna says:

    I tried the red, didn’t like it and wanted to revert, but couldn’t seem to find all the necessary tweaks to rid it. I finally just had to reflash and start over. Not sure about the loud hack; not sure what that does exactly.
