    Hello all, I am trying to flash gt-i9500 w/wanamlite with no luck. I always get stock at black screen after Galaxy S4 very first screen. I consider myself intermediate in knowledge since I have done a lot of flashing and unlocking with my previous SII. If I would get stock on something then just do lots of reading until I was able to solve this problem but not this time.

    I started from XXUEMJ8 android 4.3 and unlocked… from Russia or India wish I flashed about 2 or 3 weeks ago and running fine.

    Everytime I flash Wanamlite “GT-I9500_WanamLite.XXUEMJ9.V3.2.NO-WIPE.zip” from recovery “GT-I9500-CWM-RECOVERY-” installed via odin 3 all goes fine. It ask for reboot and the only first Samsung S4 screen and the black screen. If I reboot to recovery I goes back to the CMW where I’ve done all sorts of wiping with no luck and have to go back via odin to my previous firmware.

    Any help very appreciated.

    Screen smearing continues even worser. App drawer is also laggy and when I want to install an apk I get an eror. I have to reboot and install the apk fastly. What should I do?

  • [email protected]

    Excuse me I have a problem with sound after flash this Rom.. Nothing sound absolutely.. Which decision?

  • KK Yasir

    @WanamXda:disqus YOu ROMs are always awesome.. i have 2 quires
    1. Why there is no Option ” Set Default Contact” in long press contact number in contact menu, while it was there is 4.2.2

    2. After Enabling Call Button in call logs why the Dialer icon is too small as compare to 4.2.2. bcz of these 2 reasons i am not keeping 4.3 as my default ROM.. revert back to 4.2.

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

      Sorry, i don’t support I9505 anymore.

      • Antonio Ramos Garcia

        ooo___ooo noooooo???? why???

        I9505 is the most popular here in Spain!!

        i donated some money for you. I love your roms.

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

          Because i don’t own the device, i took the decision to support only the devices i have on my hands, i keep supporting i9505 through my Xposed App.

          You should make a donation for what you are on your hands, not what you will get in the future, otherwise this will become a JOB not a hobby.

          I have no problem to send back any donation, i just need your Paypal email.

        • http://lexxy.de Lexxy

          Ohh nooo … the I9505 is the most popular here in Germany, too. I love your Roms!!! OMG

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

    Sorry, it needs a Rom repack, I moved somehow the kernel outside the correct folder I will do it tomorrow, if you already installed the Rom you just need to flash Adam kernel 3.3, or keep your current one, it should work too.

  • King Tryndamere

    Hey, this is the first rom i flash on my device and i have no idea what im doing, anyone mind guiding me through a couple of steps or referring me to a turorial?

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

      Wait for my reupload tomorrow.

      • King Tryndamere

        again, if you know of any tutorial please tell reply with a link, also, thank you for replying quickly and saving me from downloading something for no reason

  • Rui

    yeh i get the same problem and i thinks its related with the bad installation of the file because we get that error and installation aborted message after flashing.

    • Kloesen Tròn Vo

      Maybe, this error comes from a bad uploading connection or a bad upload host.
      I have this trouble, too

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

        I will reupload it tomorrow.

        • Kloesen Tròn Vo

          Thanks in advance, Wanam.

  • Dilgit

    In spite of the message, just reboot and it works!! It did boot fine but Wi-Fi is grayed out. It’s impossible to enable wi-fi. I tried to reboot, take out battery for a while but still NO wi-fi!!

  • Rui

    I get the same error as Dilgit posted but rom still boots, is rom file corrupt?

  • ithehappy

    Thanks boss. Anyone wondering, this update solves the stuttering issue in third party browsers and email apps, so it’s a must upgrade if you are on MJ8.

  • Dilgit

    While installing got this message: “simlinking… flashing kernel…
    assert failed: package_extract_file(“wanam/boot.img”, “/tmp/boot.img”)
    E: Error in /storage/sdcard1/GT-i9500_wanaLite.XXUEMJ9.V3.2.NO-WIPE.zip
    (status 7)
    Installation aborted

    What do I do now?
