How To Install Android 4.3 Google Play Edition ROM On Samsung Galaxy S4

Every person was anticipating Google to broadcast Android 4.3 at Google I/O last month, but rather than we got things like new developer-only tools that help smooth the development method and make better apps, and special Google Play editions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One. Well, it has only been a month, and now we’ve got our first gaze at Android 4.3, albeit in unofficial capability in the pattern of a Galaxy S4 Google Play version (GE) ROM leak. As ever, we’re going to guide you through the method of getting it up and running on your Galaxy S4 GT-I9595, so read on after the leap for the instructions. 

As it is usually the case with leaked Samsung ROMs, SamMobile’s Faryaab is the man who has released the ROM online. It has been extracted from a Google Play edition Galaxy S4, and is confirmed working on Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S 4 units (model number: GT-I9505). If you own a rooted GT-I9505 and have ClockworkMod Recovery installed, you can flash the ROM to your device by following the steps below.

  3. Shutdown your Galaxy S4.
  4. Press and hold Power + Home + Volume Up keys until you boot into ClockworkMod Recovery.

  6. Go to “install zip from sdcard” > “choose zip from sdcard”  and select the ROM’s zip file you transferred to your phone in Step 1.
  7. After the ROM has been installed, select the reboot option from the main menu,
If you followed the steps correctly, your Galaxy S4 will now boot into Android 4.3 from the Google Play edition variant.
