How to Replace Screen Glass Only on Galaxy S4!

 

So if you’ve cracked your screen on a brand, new Galaxy S4 and feel miserable perhaps because you don’t even have insurance, there’s actually a way to replace the screen glass only.

Now, for this to work, you must have a broken screen ONLY, if your digitizer is not working, this method will not work!  To test this out, see if you notice any cracks in the digitizer layer under the glass layer.  Also, check to see if your touchscreen is working.  If you only notice cracks on the outer glass layer and also your touchscreen is working fine, you can use this method to replace the glass only and revive your Galaxy S4 for just about $20 USD.

How to Root Verizon Galaxy S4 SCH-i545! [UPDATED with VIDEO]

For those of you who just picked up a brand, new Verizon Galaxy S4 SCH-i545, there’s a root method out now.

Currently, Verizon Galaxy S4 bootloader is locked, meaning you cannot use CWM or TWRP root method.

Also, the VRUAMDK kernel on the Verizon Galaxy S4 comes with SU-co*k-block which makes it hard to root.

GT-i9505 Kernel Root Fix! 9

GT-i9505 Kernel Root Fix!

For those of you having trouble getting full root using CWM or TWRP root method on the GT-i9505, this is most likely caused by SetUID in the kernel.

To fix this issue, you can install any custom kernel after installing CWM or TWRP.

I do recommend installing Adam kernel by XDA user Wanam, as it’s stock-like yet should gives you better performance/battery life over stock.
