Official OmniROM Nightlies for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 LTE
A few weeks ago, we talked about how the new player in the custom ROM world, OmniROM, had started releasing nightly builds for various devices. Then not too long after, a few more devices were added to the mix. Now, the next major device has its own taste of the OmniROM-flavored Android 4.4.1: the Samsung Galaxy S 4 LTE
As mentioned above, these new nightly builds will feature all of the Android 4.4.1 goods that we’ve come to know and love. The builds also feature the new OmniROM features that were introduced a few weeks ago alongside the first batch of nightlies.

This official OmniROM support for the Galaxy S 4 LTE comes from the following maintainers: XDA Recognized Contributor jakew02 and XDA Forum Members jumoog and Evisceration.
