For this week’s Verizon Galaxy S4 SCH-i545 ROM of the week, check out latest version RLS10 of HyperDrive ROM.
The latest HyperDrive ROM RLS10 brings lots of new Note 3 goodies like Note 3 launcher, wallpapers, sounds, task manager, alarm widget, s-voice, calendar widget, flipboard, Samsung apps & hub, Watch On, and some more. (You will have the option to choose which one to install in AROMA installer btw.)
With HyperDrive tweaks, you will be able to customize everything from your status bar, clock, lockscreen, shortcuts, and much much more. HyperDrive ROM also ships with a bunch of useful Xposed Framework modules like Xposed App Settings (See full tutorial on Xposed App Settings here), Galaxy S4 Multiple Widgets, Icon Themer, Unlock effect before Security code, XQuickSettingsToggles, and XthemeEngine.
For audio, HyperDrive ROM comes with Viper4Android FX, which is my favorite audio app of all-time and you can see a demo of it here. For camera, you will get Android 4.3 PhotoSphere along with regular S4 camera for total of TWO cameras. Mobile hotspot is working out of the box so you can easily wifi tether all of your wireless devices easily on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
HyperDrive ROM also provides extra 8 different themes through its HyperDrive Hub app in addition to HyperRed theme in AROMA installer.
This ROM probably has one of the best and most extensive AROMA graphical installers and you will be able to customize everything from your apps to adding even Moto X/Focal cameras, change sounds to AOSP, Xperia, MIUI, choose Volume Boost mods (to make your speakers louder), choose AOSP apps (for calendar, calculator, etc…etc…), and just way too many to list here.
Overall, HyperDrive ROM is a feature-packed TouchWiz-based ROM that’s probably worth trying at least once if you have a Verizon Galaxy S4. If you have not tried this awesome ROM yet, definitely 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.
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!
