    Hi Wanam. The battery low sounds are no longer working after installing Wanam Xposed. The setting is set to sound, but you don’t hear anything when the battery gets below 15% and 5%, checkout the screenshot. Other sounds like plugin charger do work.

  • Johan Neyens

    After installing the latest version, my local storage is not writable for me. The issue popped up while trying to update the Xposed Installer.
    I have cleaned my phone and put the official stock ROM (4.4.2) back on it.
    All is working
    Rooted it, still all working (update supersu)
    Installed TWRP (all working)
    Installed WanamLite and run into an issue again with updating the Xposed Installer.
    Ran the fix permissions within TWRP but still not working.
    Everything else is working fine.

    I am having a S4 i9500

  • paz

    I can not open videos and recordings I send SMS software What do you think the reason

  • Lennard Felida

    Hi Wanam when I try to copy files to my internal storage I get this error…. (see pic)

    I’m running the latest 4.4.2 for the GT-I9500

    And I can’t even install the closed framework..can you help me

  • abhay

    why do i loose root on every reboot? also my lock screen by power button is lost

  • Anthony Class

    wifi disconnects continuously!!

    el wifi se desconecta continuamente

  • Ali Tahir Chaudhary

    hello all i could not open my CWMode on my S4 GT-i9500 after I root it whats the reason ?

  • mmcyklo2

    Hi Wanam, is this ROM also for i9506?

  • Jirapat Sakudomchai

    How much of ram that it use? –> Less Than 750 Mb.?

    Does this rom battery friendly?

  • Eric Iván Domínguez Ramírez

    Can I update from wanamlite 4.2.2 to this version whitout loosing apps and data??

  • robert calsonic

    is this ROM’s SELInux is disabled/permissive ?

  • super saiyan

    please help me fixing this problem
    the writing problem
    for example when i try to install an app from aptoide it tells me ( couldn’t write to sdcard ) and doesn’t even start downloading
    another example when i’m trying to update the frameware from the xposed installer it tells me ( couldn’t extract…etc )

    • super saiyan

      ok fixed the problem
      turned out to be that it’s really matter to go to this rom from an official 4.2.2 or 4.4.2
      when i downloaded the official kitkat rom and tried going to wanamlite from there it fixed the problem
      but of course you need to root the official rom before you do that

    • super saiyan

      but small problem
      i noticed that the adam kernel is not there and it’s not available for the s4 i9500 kitkat wanamlite , only to the 4.3 wanamlite version
      so sad it’s available for the 4g version and not for 3g

  • sabirk

    Hi, I have issue with my wifi. I saw it’s always on in battery usage while it’s actually off..is it something related to this rom or kernel.?I use twrp latest version downloaded via twrp app while I’m on stock 4.3 before flash this rom..
    Anyone? Thanks

  • Jheyson Mogollon

    Please, Adam kernel! !!! Or how set selinux permissive

  • Diego Lo Giudice

    Hello Wanam, have you had the chance to correct the issue with the Kernel being out of the correct folder on the v4.0 version?, is it safe now to to install without getting stuck at the Samsung Logo?; I don’t seem to be able to find the thread where you were explaining that you would correct this issue….

  • Ai Lai Phếchbúc

      Hi Wanam,

      Almost 3 weeks with this ROM : Great work indeed!

      Just today I notice an issue, my mobile data is not responding even though its turned on. there is no H or H plus signal.

      I have factory reset my phone but still the same.

      May you please let us know if there is a work around for this. 😀

      Hoping for your prompt response!

    Hello. I am running wanam rom android 4.3. Judging by the comments, people are facing some problems while installing the rom. I don’t want to make any mistakes while flashing wanam rom android 4.4.2. Plus i don’t want any data wipe. So anyone out there who’s flashed this rom, tell me the exact procedure to flash the wanam 4.4.2 rom. Also please mention whether the rom is stable and everything is working….(I mean EVERYTHING… even the slightest problem in the rom please mention)… Thanks in advance.

    Oh and I have one more question… Will my data get deleted if I flash the official 4.4.2 rom using odin??

  • Paul Cassells

    Clicking the “Modem” link takes you to the same URL as the “ROM” Link – Where can I find the official i9500 KitKat compatible modem for Wanam 4.0? My current modem is dodgy, I really want to flash the latest one – Thanks

  • havork

    Nothing I did fixed the problem, this ROM needs some serious work.
    Other custom ROMs like NeatRom and Omega work from the first time.
    Also you should consider uploading your software to Dropbox-like as users can always download the latest version.

  • gidian

    The (SOLUTION) for bootloop when installing Wanamlite XXUFNB3 V4.0 rom is simple:

    1. backup whatever you need from your phone’s internal memory on to your SD Card or PC (EVERYTHING YOU NEED – We will be formatting the ENTIRE phone internal memory) Note: If you have game saved files you need, i suggest you back up your “Android” folder (It takes a long time to backup but bare with it)

    2. Place Wanamlite XXUFNB3 V4.0 rom on you “External SD Card”

    3. boot into recovery

    4. Select Mounts and Storage

    5. Format Cashe

    6. Format System

    7. Format Data

    Note: DO NOT format Storage/sdcard1 – that is your external memory card

    8. Format Data and /Data/Media (/sdcard)

    9. Install Wanamlite XXUFNB3 V4.0 rom from your extrenal sdcard (In case you don’t know how: go back to the main recovery menu – select “install zip” – select “choose zip from /storage/sdcard1 – locate your “Wanamlite XXUFNB3 V4.0” rom and install it

    10. reboot from main recovery menu and enjoy.

    REASON FOR BOOTLOOP: Sometimes older roms installed prior to this rom leave prints (bits and pieces of data and information) that will not be removed by a simple factory, cache or dalvik cache wipe – FORMATTING WILL 😉

    Note: NO NEED to install stock rom then Wanamlite XXUFNB3 V4.0 rom.

  • Siddhartha S

  • Guest

    Hi Wanam!

    Just in case you’ll get your Kernel Sources for Kitkat, would you include the Wolfson Audio Control in your next version of Adam Kernel?

    BTW, I am still on XXUEMJ8, if I flash this newer version of Wanamlite, will I still be able to connect to the internet, make calls and text messages with the old modem?

  • Zohar Telor

    But, won’t flashing a stock 4.4.2 rom first and them rooting it will set the KNOX flag to 1?

  • Oni

    Wanam, by any chance, if you can get your hands on the the Kernel Sources for Kitkat, would you kindly include the Wolfson Audio Control Mod? That would really be sweet!

    BTW, My modem is still on XXUEMJ8, if I flash this and keep my old modem, will I still be able to connect to the internet, and do regular phone functions like Call & Text Messages?

    Many thanks!

  • Lidor Kalfa

    here what i’ve done that fixed all the problems:
    * Wipe data + cache + dalvik
    * COMPLETE clean sdcard+ext-sdcard
    * flashed XXUFNB3 official stock with odin
    * flashed philZ Touch 6.07.9 though odin
    * Wipe data + cache + dalvik
    * flashed Wanamlite v4.0 though recovery
    * flashed removed apps though recovery

    it all the errors i had.. (write protection on sdcard, bootloop and so on)

  • Christian

    Its true this version rom stuck on logo boot, I’ve to wipe all data and downgrade to previous version 3.5. This version need a pit ??

  • Lidor Kalfa

    my sdcard has “write protection”, i cant remove or save anything in my phone.. why is that?

    • Amit Oren

      you must flash stock 4.4.2 prior to installing Wanam ROM. (in case you come from 4.3 or prior to that).
      you can flash it even after and re-flash Wanam. it will solve the issue without erasing the data.

  • Mohammed Abdulla

    hlla. im stuck in SAMSUNG logo. what should i do? even though i did wipe data.

    • Mohammed Abdulla

      solved it by flashing the stock rom then i rooted it then installed wanam rom

      • Santosh Abraham

        Hi .. can you please tell me how do i go to the stock rom and install the wanam rom again … I seem to have the same problem :(

        • Mohammed Abdulla

          Download official stock rom 4.4 from sammobile or anywhere else. Then install it by odin.
          Root your phone using CWM file.
          Install wanamlite rom without wipe data.

          • Santosh Abraham

            Thanks a lot !

  • Aamir Jan

    Question: as this is based on the “leaked” version.. is this a stable version of your rom? Or are you working on it? As they stated seeding the official 4.4.2 update yesterday!

    • Bala

      its not leaked but an official base afaik

        • Abrez Bin Abrar

          Hey, were you able to successfully install this rom? If yes, what procedure did you follow?

          • Anoop Antony

            I also got stuck at the Samsung logo. But now its working great..thanks Wanam for the rom. “Intha al Batal”.
            What you have to do is this:
            1. Go to recovery.
            2. Do wipe all data and cache.
            3. Flash this rom.
            4. Restart recovery.
            5. Do wipe all data and cache.
            6. Go to advanced options and wipe preload, wipe data, wipe system and wipe cache.
            7. Then install the rom again.
            8. Reboot and Wait for your KitKat 😉

  • avar

    Salam. im still on 4.2.2, should i first flash stock rom before i flash yours?

    • Aamir Jan

      Walaikum Salam!.. You don’t need stock rom to flash this.. just go to cwm recovery(or any custom recovery you’ve installed), do a data wipe if you want.. and simply flash this rom.. it should work like that!

      • avar

        himm, thanks, im asking this cuz in previes roms (4.3). wanam said we should flash stock roms first when coming from pre 4.3 roms. just to confirm.
