    Android AOSP 7.0 Nougat ROM for Galaxy S4 LTE International (jfltexx, GT-i9505) is now available through an unofficial AOSP ROM update and this is a guide which explains how to update Galaxy S4 LTE International (jfltexx, GT-i9505) to Android Nougat 7.0. Since the Android Nougat Source code release, till now we have many Android Nougat ROMs available for various devices and also we have many CyanogenMod 14 ROMs. And now this time the Nougat ROM (build number: NRD90M) has arrived to Galaxy S4 LTE International variant which is brought to you by developer JDCTeam. In addition to this, we also have the CyanogenMod 14 for Galaxy S4 LTE.

    DISCLAIMER:

    • I DON’T KNOW THE STATUS OF THIS ROM YET. THIS COULD BE AN INITIAL ALPHA ROM WHICH MAY NOT BOOT AT ALL OR IF AT ALL IT BOOTS THEN IT MAY NOT BE USABLE AS A DAILY DRIVER. I JUST FOUND THE ROM AND POSTED HERE. TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK. ALSO MAKE SURE TO TAKE NANDROID BACKUP OF YOUR CURRENT ROM.
    • I don’t want to waste your time and my time too and hence I basically verify the system/build.prop and/or updater-script to get the build details at the first place before posting any ROM. I may be wrong at times and hence it is your responsibility to verify once more about the legitimacy of the ROMs.
    • Installing a custom ROM on a the S4 LTE requires a custom recovery to be installed, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you.

    Hi, thanks for the ROM šŸ˜‰

    I got an update for your rom, I had 7.1.1 and you got an update for 7.1.2 at the mobile update section. I proceeded with update, but after downloading it and restarting from recovery it said couldnĀ“t update: CanĀ“t open /data/media/0/OTAUpdates/JDCTeam_jdc_jflte-7.1.2-20170408-stable.zip [bad] installation aborted…

    So, I restarted again the phone in TWR recovery mode and tryed to update my self manually the zip file, but got same error.

    Can you please give a hand on what could be happening, why canĀ“t I update from 7.1 to 7.2, itĀ“s same S4 LTE AOSP rom, etc…

    Thanks!
