Yes, it’s finally HERE! If you have been waiting for the latest Android 7.0 Nougat on your Samsung Galaxy S4, you can grab the JDCTeam’s Android 7.0 Nougat custom ROM, which has most of it working good enough for daily driving.
You will be able to experience Google’s latest OS on your Galaxy S4 even though Samsung has stopped updating it.
What’s not working yet?
Video recording doesn’t work while photos work fine. If you absolutely need video recording to work, do not use this ROM but if that’s not a big deal, you can easily use this ROM as you daily driver.
For installation, we do recommend you to use latest TWRP recovery and make sure to install Gapps otherwise you won’t get Play Store.
The following ROM can be installed on any Qualcomm-based Galaxy S4 with an unlocked bootloader such as the GT-i9505.
Download JDCTeam’s Android 7.0 Nougat ROM for Galaxy S4 (For GT-i9505, T-Mobile SGH-M919, Canadian SGH-i337M, AT&T SGH-i337, Verizon SCH-i545)
Download Android 7.0 Nougat Gapps (use pico)
Note – For AT&T or Verizon, YOU MUST HAVE UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER to install this ROM!
Installation is easy, reboot into TWRP, factory reset, then install the ROM, install Gapps, then reboot. For reference, please see our guide on How to Install using TWRP!
