CyanogenMod Nightlies are up for the Verizon Galaxy S4

verizon galaxy s4

Galaxy S4 owners on Verizon who have already rooted and hacked their device can now get the latest and greatest builds of CyanogenMod onto their phones. The CM team are now pumping out nightly builds for the GS4 on Verizon, US Cellular, as well as Sprint, so getting that heavily modified version of vanilla Android is just a flash away.

If you want to try your luck with the new builds of CM for the Galaxy S4, you can download the ROMs right from the servers by following this link.

Cheers Trevor and Kevin!

    I’ve been on it all day and haven’t found any bugs yet. I’ve been testing everything I can think of an it all seems to be working (GPS, wifi, phone calls, camera, etc). Battery life has been solid with heavy use too (I have hardly turned my screen off all day and still going strong). Just an FYI.

    I am using Scott clean rom on my S4.. It gave me better battery life, less hot and no more lagg…

    • Jimneezy

      which carrier are you on if you dont mind me asking?

      • XphoneTroll

        Verizon.

  • Tim242

    I’m going to be using BeansRom. I used it on my Note 2. Just installed Build 1 on my S4.

  • hensu

    hell yeah. cant wait for an RC.

  • coolsilver

    Will this support a 64GB card so I don’t have to reformat it after I get done playing with CM?

    • Jimneezy

      I have a 64gb card in my Tmo S4 and at first I had to reformat the card to Fat32 before i used it on my S4, works with touchwiz and CM10.1

  • Mike Robertson

    Nobody has said yet… OK I will. I thought you weren’t gonna build a CM ROM for GS4 …hum? I guess after the 10 million sold in a month you reconsidered

    • Fozzybare

      know what you are talking about before spewing crap.

    • p_droid

      That was never an official statement by the CM team. That was one developer saying he wasn’t going to be involved with the S4. They released an official statement clearing things up.

      • Nicholas Ruiz

        Just what I was about to say. Also if I recall correctly that person was talking about the Exynos version, which is supposed to be more secure.

        • Fozzybare

          yep, they are not officially supporting the exynos version but the us variants are being supported

      • mjmedstarved

        p_droid… like, from the Droid X days???

    • S2556

      Like these other guys said. Team Hacksung that did tons of work on the S2 and S3 (international) Are not going to support the exynos S4 because Samsung doesn’t release everything they need to build kernels etc… to their full extent. There are still other developers supporting the international S4 and the snapdragon LTE variants are not affected at all.

  • Blue Sun

    I wonder what CM users are saying about the operation of the camera on this device. Would be a good early indicator of how well the Google Edition would likely perform.

    • mjmedstarved

      Yeah… once they port over the S camera from the S4… I’ll be loading custom roms once more.

      • S2556

        S camera or pretty much S anything will not make it into Cyanogen or AOKP or any AOSP based ROMs. It is touchwiz only thing.

        • MikeCiggy

          I have always hacked my friends phones for them when they ask and installed either AOKP or CM. Two of them got the s4 and were bugging me about putting a rom on. I had to explain to them that many features the phone has come with like air gestures, and smart stay are Samsung features that would be lost with an AOSP rom.

          S4 owners best hope is a developer who has the phone decides to work with the stock rom, speed and clean things up but still have those features they bought the phone for.

          • S2556

            Yeah when I got my S3 I was using stock based roms for a while and they ran much lighter than how it shipped. But I am a sucker for AOSP lol. I do miss the camera and a few S services, though not enough haha.

        • michael arazan

          Is it possible to load Camera apps from another source like the playstore, or borrow from other software platforms?
