Suddenly a Wild Samsung Galaxy S 4 Firmware Appears

With the release of a new flagship device, comes the inevitable clamor of people trying to get their hands on the latest firmware. Whether it’s to simply pick out the latest wallpapers and ringtones or begin examining it in greater detail and attempt to port the ROM itself or its newest features to another device, there’s always a buzz about the first ROM for a new device. Samsung fans can rejoice as the first firmware for the Galaxy S 4 GT-i9500 has just made an appearance today. Given the amount of hype and excitement surrounding this particular device, I’m sure there will be no shortage of people eager to get their hands on this.

This ROM itself is labelled as I9500ZCUAMDG and appears to be a complete and flashable (via ODIN) ROM intended for the Chinese market containing the usual CSC, PDA and modem files. With a build date of only yesterday, it’s certainly pretty fresh. And being based on Android 4.2.2, it will of course feature all the latest and greatest (according to Samsung at least) features for any mobile device, as well as many of the features you would expect from a vanilla build. The firmware itself was posted to the forums by XDA Senior Member AdamLange to kick off the devices dedicated official firmware thread, so be sure to bookmark that if you intend to keep your S4 close to stock.

I guess there isn’t really much else to add so what are you waiting for? Go and start digging.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
