Custom rom dev’s are slowly moving over to 4.3 and here is one good custom 4.3 rom that I would recommend you flash, if you are a flashaholic like I am. This article is for the T-Mobile Galaxy S4 only.  Flash at your own risk, we at Tech Live Wire are not responsible. Use the Slim Gapps 8 package with this rom, as that is the best and most stable.  Below is a screenshot of the Beanstalk Rom 4.3 which I am so far loving.  Battery life on it is Phenomenal.  I bet I can go 3 days without charging.  It’s been 2 hours so far and it only went down 1% in charge. When you flash this rom, make sure to let it sit for 10 minutes at the Android Welcome setup screen.  This will ensure everything settles down right.  When I was installing this rom,  I cleared cache, wiped dalvik, formatted system, cleared all data.  Then I flashed the rom, cleared cache again.  Then I flashed Slim Gapps 8 which is ideal to use for 4.3 Beanstalk rom, don’t use default Gapps for beanstalk rom. Use the Nova launcher on this rom for best performance. custom roms
