    Hello, I flashed this rom and everything works perfectly except that I
    can’t connect to the internet using my mobile data, only with wifi. I
    can call and message, but not enter the internet.

    Where can I find real differences between 1.3 and 1.4 (i9500 S4)?


  • Hùng Lý

    Hola estoy usando la rom WanamLite v1.4 y he notado que el teléfono se calienta y le dura menos la pila con respecto a la versión 1.2 instale el Kernel repaked que estaba en las descargas…..Gracias está rom 1.4 corrigió el problema de la cámara y otras inestabilidades.

  • Mega Lanca

    thanks Wanam for this ROM. Do you get yellow triangle when you flash it on your I9500?

    • Mega Lanca

      As you know, Chainfire is working on updating TriangleAway which is still not compatible with I9500 due to extra Exynos bootloader security. No ETA of course and he has I9505. I bought I9500, as my favourite XDA developer has one as well 😉

  • Muhammad Bajammal

    bro how can it be? you warn us to not update when using adam karnel, whereas in the previous version you use karnel adam … and no guide from adam karnel for beginners like me .. Thank you for your understanding …

    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      The previous FWs were compatible with Adam, the 2 new FW requires an updated kernel sources.

  • William

    can you do this on att sgh i337 or do you need a different kernel?

    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Sorry i can’t support more devices.

  • Saeed Al Falasi

    wanam, i hav been getting boot issues on 1.3 and 1.4. Not sure what is the main reason. I try to add arabic font and enot sure if directly relates to the boot issues.


    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Replace “/system/fonts/GS45_Arab_AndroidOS.ttf” with your favorite fonts.

      • Saeed Al Falasi

        I did. This is what i have noticed. I flash the new zip. It works fine and when i reboot it goes through the process of “upgrading android” and it goes through all the apps and then boots fine. Then if i reboot, it get stuck as “starting apps” . This happend on 1.3 and 1.4. Not sure if this this my device specific. I even tried full wipe. Not to worry though. I thank you for your support.

  • romcook

  • Korumera

    Files are ready on the main server and uploaded to Mirror 2 and 3 aswell. Njoy!
