For this week’s AT&T, T-Mobile, Canadian, and GT-i9505 ROM of the week, check out Echoe ROM.

Based on the latest Android 4.3 leak for GT-i9505, Echoe ROM brings you the latest Android 4.3 TouchWiz to all AT&T, T-Mobile, Canadian, and GT-i9505 Galaxy S4 smartphones. (For T-Mobile, you will lose WiFi-calling, so if you absolutely need that stick with another T-Mobile based custom ROM.)

With Android 4.3, you will get some performance/battery boost and if you do use a Galaxy Gear smartwatch, this ROM will make your Galaxy S4 fully capable to run Gear Manager app.

Other notable features on Echoe ROM include Ausdim Kernel (which is built for Android 4.3 TouchWiz) with support up to 2.16Ghz overclocking, ex-fat support for microSD cards, screen-off torch (Settings->My Device->Display->Torchlight), pop-up browser from Note 2, X4Video player from Xperia Z, Android 4.3 PhotoSphere camera and more.

Overall, this is the best Android 4.3-based TouchWiz ROM I have tried so far, so if you want to try out the latest Android 4.3 TouchWiz today (instead of waiting for months for Samsung to push one out for your S4), give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    I flashed this ROM with safestrap and when I reboot, it just shows the Recovery and then I tap, Continue, and the screen turns black for about 30 seconds and reboots. What am I doing wrong? I am running 4.2.2, its a AT&T I337 with MF3.

  10. elui says:

    SafeStrap For AT&T MF3? wifi dont workeli

    • Larry says:

      Did you flash loki doki and the mf3 file for safe safe strap after installing the rom
      Or did you fix permissions through safe strap
      Those usually work for me

  11. David says:

    I had the signal problem also. It would randomly go off and on. So back back to Task650 AOKP 4.3.1 rom.

  12. Larry More says:

    I installed this ROM yesterday. I NEEDED LOKI-DOKI to make it work on my AT&T SGH-1337. AFter that, things seem to be working well so far.

    • Larry More says:

      I’m still liking this ROM a lot. I had to re-set the APN to get 4G data connection out of town; the new APN works better in my home area, too (Phila, PA) . Connection doesn’t get lost anymore like it frequently did with Wicked v7

      • Jessica says:

        Hi Larry,

        I’m thinking of flashing this Rom too I wanted to know how did you reset the APN to get it to work properly.Thanks in advance.

        • Larry More says:


          settings > more networks > mobile networks > Access Point Names > [whatever name you have as your current APN – I changed the name on mine when I reset it]

          settings I’m currently using:

          Name: AT&T LTE
          APN: pta
          Proxy: Not set
          Port: Not set
          Username: Not set
          Password: Not set
          Multimedia message proxy:
          Multimedia message port: 80
          MCC: 310
          MNC: 410
          Authentication type: Not set
          APN type: default,admin,fota,mms,supl,hipri
          APN protocol: IPv4
          APN roaming protocol: IPv4
          Turn APN on/off: APN turned on
          Bearer: Unspecified
          Mobile virtual network operator type: None
          Mobile virtual network operator v… Not set

          I got these off XDA developers site with a little research, and there were other APN settings I could have tried; however, these established the connection immediately where I had none before, I got 4G immediately, and have had absolutely no trouble since then (about a week and a half).

          I had considered maybe getting another modem to fix the problem, but have decided I don’t need to — since changing the APN, my phone and data connection are now strong, have never disappeared like on other ROMS, and I am almost continuously on 4G when I am off a WIFI site. My data connection also seems much faster than any other ROM I’ve used. I’m very happy with the whole set-up, though I have had a couple unexpected reboots and one of those times my setup came back up in German, so I restored from a backup I made a couple days earlier.
          Oh yes, I am overclocked to 1.998

          Hope that all helps

          • markworks says:

            @larry So let me get this right all you changed was the apn and you stop loading data when the screen goes off and where on xda did you get them link please I’m on t-mobile

            • Larry More says:


              sorry I don’t check this thread often. You are correct, once I altered the APN settings, my data connection no longer got lost.

              Here’s the link I used to find the settings :
              unfortunately, you will see that it is specific to at&t .

              I looked briefly for a t-mobile link, and here is the one I came to: I can’t vouch for the settings there, since I haven’t tried them, but read through, you’ll probably find what you need.

              good luck

  13. Brian says:

    way to many bugs… getting a new rom

  14. cris says:

    Does this 4.3 ROM trip the Knox 0x0 flag?

  15. Jeremy says:

    Didnt work. Gave me a yellow triangle and said that it found software not authorized by att.

  16. markworksfx1 says:

    Flashed this Rom keeps losing data connection and signal
    Xda forums gave a solution was to odin the mj5 stock modem
    But when you try to flash it it fails been working it this problem for the last few days
    But other than that this rom is fast.
    If anyone comes up with a solution “max”?
    Please post it here with a link to the files
    Ii have the t-mobile galaxy s4

    • Mark says:

      I had this problem too. I found that this ROM installs as a european version. After I went into build.prop and set my phone back to its default settings as a SGH-M919 this problem went away

      • Mick1113 says:

        Question I am new at this, I managed to get a partial fix when changed to roaming. Will you be so kind to share those settings so I can finally have a full fix? Thanks

      • markworks says:

        Yea me too what exactly did you change in the build prop explain more
        I’ve installed this rom about ten times tried flashing the mj5 modem but had problems with
        Odin. With your fix did you stop losing data

    • Ricardo says:

      I have the same issue have not been able to fix the problem even changing the build.prop

  17. Mrdj says:

    @markworksfx1 did you tick the ‘phone’ box instead of the ‘pda’ in odin when flashing the mj5? Also I had to delete the .md5 extension from the file I downloaded so you end up with .tar. My international gt-i9505 is running great with the Echoe 5+ in combination with the mj5 (connection trouble before I had flashed the mj5).

    • markworksfx1 says:

      @Mrdj I have the T-mobile Galaxy s4 and was running echol v6
      not v5 will but I checked the pda box and odin it as md5 . So let me get this stright
      1. Rename the file by taking the md5 off
      2. Tick the phone not the pda
      3. After the phone reboots and you set it up
      4. Odin the mj5 modem tick the phone box
      if i got something wrong reply back
      will try it again thanks for your help

      • markworksfx1 says:

        Can’t change zip file to .tar have to flash through twrp and the mj5 moden flie I have is a zip too
        was about to try it again but got stuck on trying to odin the file thought I’ll wait til I get a reply

        • Mick1113 says:

          Maybe you are not going to believe it. I couldn’t myself, but to fix that go to mobile network and check allow data on roaming. That’s it problem solved your data won’t be interrupted when the screen is off

  18. I Rafael says:

    Does this work with safestrap?

  19. Mrdj says:

    @mark I’m really not an expert and don’t want to give wrong advice. All I know is I had downloaded a mj5 file that was .tar.md5 When it wouldn’t flash a Google search told me to simply delete the .md5 That flashed ok with Odin set to phone. Perhaps it’s in the zip file?

  20. Flemming Knudsen says:

    I installed the ROM on my GT-I9505.
    Phone boot-looped.
    I was able to boot into recovery and install Bobcat v5.1 and then v6.


  21. Anuar says:

    I lost root during the process…any idea why??

  22. Mark says:

    I have everything working on this rom and love it, except one thing. GOOGLE Wallet, when I install the 2 files to make it work, it breaks the NFC on the device. I’ve found that some ROMs will do that but the cause is unclear. Has anyone encountered this and know of a solution?

  23. markworks says:

    @mark what did change in the build prop

  24. I Rafael says:

    Does this work with safestrap??

  25. err0r says:

    Download from play store root explorer

    Open then navigate to Settings and in that folder you will see Build.Prop

    Open with RB editor then replace the international galaxy name the I 9505 to SGH-M919

    And try this rom with KT kernel for 4.3 its awsome, fast and non lag descent battery life

  26. err0r says:

    Not settings I ment system, but no good I got same issues with signal loss

  27. carl sole says:

    I notice Max don’t help much with this issue on here considering its his site and he put these touchwiz 4.3 ROMs on here.. If 4.3 don’t work right on tmo or at&t over here with this signal problem why put it here then to start with … CHECK IT OUT FIRST …!!”

    • Mick1113 says:

      Well said. Its like he just dont give a shit about it. Faulty ROMs and he make videos saying how perfect they are. I am not coming back to this website ever again. Also I will troll as hell this website on every social media I am aware of.

  28. Carl 11 says:

    Hi Mick don’t no what phone you have but have you tried kit kat 4.4 Kang Bang Rom for Tmo Gti9505 stable works fine been using it for few days now.

    • Mick1113 says:

      Hey thanks!! The thing is that I like the tw features thats why I wanted to use this rom. I heard that the the gummy rom is very stable and have tons of features. Maybe I try both and let you know.

  29. Al Marenger says:

    Hey guy’s any idea as to how to get around knox from JB 4.3 just downloaded a few days ago and I have tried to get around to rooting my S4 and God help me I have tried different ways to no avails cannot root. When it comes to the end of loading on ODIN you see a quick flash that says reset disconnect and still the same had I known I would not have installed it, it sucks anyways and no way to install CWM please help a good old Canadian. S4 I9505

    • Craig says:

      You can always do plan B…have your mobile provider unlock the phone for you and that will solve all issues….I’m using the SGH i337M from Telus and I didn’t have any issues rooting my device…does your computer have the right Samsung drivers installed?

  30. Al Marenger says:
