How to Convert Galaxy S4 into OnePlus One!

howto-convert-galaxys4-oneplusone

If you haven’t heard, there’s a new phone out called OnePlus One.  It’s only $349 for the phone but to get it, you will need an invite, which is nearly impossible.  Well, OnePlus One phone runs a special version of CM11 ROM dubbed “CM11S”.

If you are tired of waiting for an invite or simply want to try out software on the OnePlus One, you can easily do it by installing CM11 ROM along with our HighOnAndroid OnePlus One conversion kit.  This will give you everything from OnePlus One including its lockscreen, Hexo theme, camera, Screencast app (screen recording with voice), and some more.  Everything except OnePlus One screen-off gestures work, making your Galaxy S4 converted into OnePlus One (as software goes).

Also CM11 ROM “Snapshot” M9 is out, which is very stable along with zippy performance and great battery life.  This is also a great combo you can try for this week so definitely check it out if you want to convert your Galaxy S4 into OnePlus One!

Note: DOES NOT WORK WITH SAFESTRAP RECOVERY!

Download:

Download CM11 ROM  (for all AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint/Verizon/Canadian/GT-i9505)  

Download CM11 ROM GT-i9500 (For GT-i9500 there are no snapshots but this one is an unofficial build but recommended.)

Download Android 4.4.4 Gapps [You can use Stock or Micro]

Download HighOnAndroid OnePlus One Conversion Kit

Download CM11VolumeBoost (If you want to boost your speaker volume, install this after installing ROM and Gapps!) – Credits

Make sure you are using CWM v.6.0.4.3 or higher to install Android 4.4.2/4.4.3/4.4.4 KitKat ROMs! Also you can use TWRP v2.6.3.3 or higher.  You can update your CWM recovery using ROM Manager app on Play Store or TWRP Recovery using Goo Manager on Play Store.  If having trouble, you can update manually, see our CWM/TWRP Recovery for Galaxy S4.

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, install Conversion Kit, and reboot.  (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop or get force-closed keyboard error on boot, reboot into CWM recovery, go to Mounts & Storage->format /system.  For TWRP, go to Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Wipe /system.)
