Verizon Galaxy S4 Receives ROM Manager Support Thanks to Loki Patch

verizon galaxy s4

Thanks to all of the hard work that developers have been pumping into the CDMA version of the Galaxy S4 from Samsung, root lovers and hackers alike can now flash the biggest name in custom recoveries, ClockworkMod Recovery right through ROM Manager

Koush’s RM application, which was recently updated to support the Loki patch for the Galaxy S4 on Verizon, allows users to flash a custom recovery right through the app’s interface, clear data/cache, flash ROMs and a ton of other fun stuff that only true Android aficionados would even think about.  Previously, CWM would need to be flashed via alternative modes, given Verizon locked down the S4′s bootloader pretty tight, disallowing app’s such as Rom Manager to work.

If you have already rooted your VZW Galaxy S4, go ahead and download ROM Manager from Google Play and then flash the recovery right from there.

Cheers Jack!

    The details are well-explained and very concise.

    Hopefully this helps sells. Samsung had to cut their orders by 30% due to weak sales.

    I’m not sure I care about Rom Manager as much anymore. Goo Manager at least lets you order which zips to flash first.

      So does rom manager (I tihnk you have to enable advanced user under settings), but yeah most use Goo anymore.

        So that’s why Tims dog was wearing glasses in that instagram pic. He was in super geek mode working on this Gs4 patch.­ ­http://mybestfriendmakes65dollarsper&#46qr&#46net/kkEj

          Wat. This reminds me of the Colonal going crazy in MGS2.. “I just did a raw blink on Hary Kary rock.. I need scissors! 61!!!”

    anyone have some good ROMS on theirs and can comment about how they like them compared to touchwiz?

    • mjmedstarved

      I loaded the ‘Beans” ROM located over on Rootzwiki; I like it because I get to keep the touchwiz cam, it’s a solid rom for sure.

    Too bad my S4 had the most fragile screen ever and shattered in my pocket. No insurance FTL

      Ouch

      Should have definitely insured a brand new $300 device

      • T4rd

        You mean $700 device, because that’s how much it will cost to replace it or buy it off contract.
        I always carry insurance on a brand new phone, then drop it 6-8 months later when I can get a used one for significantly cheaper than new.

        • Josh Carroll

          Trying to work with Samsung about it now. It really shouldn’t have broken how it did. I put it in my pocket, took it out a few minutes later and the AMOLED panel is cracked. The gorilla glass outside is just fine though!
          Live and learn, hindsight is 20/20 haha.
