Finally, here is CyanogenMod 10.2 ROM for Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9500. It is not the official ROM from CM Team. But good for those who can’t wait and want to have a taste of latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on Galaxy S4 I9500. Most of the stuffs are working fine. Example, you can make / receive call and SMS.

Download CyanogenMod 10 Android 4.2 Jelly Bean ROM for Samsung Galaxy S3
CyanogenMod ROM is my favourite Android ROM for HTC HD2. But I seldom use CM ROM since Samsung Galaxy S2 because CyanogenMod team does not have Samsung Exynos SoC source code. So you can’t enjoy all the features that can be found on Samsung own firmware. But what make me try CyanogenMod 10.1 Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean ROM for Samsung Galaxy S3?

Besides, you can also try out other Android 4.2 Jelly Bean features too…
