Want another life companion for your Galaxy S4, one without the take-it-or-leave-it TouchWIZ UI? Because the Canadian carriers didn’t mess with the device’s bootloader (thank you!) it’s fairly easy to flash a recovery and install custom ROMs like CyanogenMOD.
Cyanogen himself, Steve Kondik, no longer working for Samsung, has released an early version of CyanogenMOD 10.1 for the T-Mobile Galaxy S4 which has been translated to work with the Canadian variant, SGH-i337M.
While there are a few outstanding issues — NFC doesn’t work, nor does mounting an external microSD card — all the basic features of the phone work. If you’re adept at hacking your Android phone, and want to risk voiding the warranty on your brand new Galaxy S4 (don’t say we didn’t warn you!), take CM10.1 for a spin.
