FactoryROM Android Developers Presents:

Stock Galaxy S4 Firmware Build JDQ39.I545VRUAMDK

This is the Stock Verizon Firmware which comes stock with the Verizon Galaxy S4.

The following ROM Includes:
  • Rooted with SuperSU
  • DeOdexed
  • Build Prop Tweaks (WIFI Scan Interval Changes, etc.)
  • Removed all Languages Except English & Spanish (no I'm not a racist!)
  • Removed all Support and Tutorial Videos
  • Added a Few Custom Ringtones (for fun)
  • Removed Various Files which were linked to the Bloat and not used by system
This is only the start of a new project that I plan on pursuing. I know I have not
been active on the forums lately, but Android was starting to put a dent in my
business and I had to take care of responsibilities first.. Now that I have some
time on my hands, and a Galaxy S4 on my belt, bring on the fun!

Removed Verizon and Samsung Apps (Bloat) including:

Amazon_Appstore.apk
Amazon_Audible.apk
Amazon_IMDB.apk
Amazon_MP3.apk
Amazon_Shopping.apk
Amazon_Widget.apk
Blurb.apk
Books.apk
canid.apk

Yea man.. You would be surprised at what ruffles peoples feathers these days.. Anyhow, I am going to
put out another project which will include all of the anti-annoyance features such as battery full
and WIFI notification. I'm not super familiar with Touchwiz yet, so figuring out what needs to be removed
in order to remove notifications might take a bit or research.

So do I put this in odin and flash it? And it is ok to do without unlocked bootloader?
You must root your device, and install either ClockworkMod or TWRP in order to install this ROM. For more information
on how to Root your device see HERE.

Does removing bloatware actually recover space so that you can install more apps? I'm reading that this will only free up space in a specific partition. I'm looking to rooting my S4 but if it isn't going to give me back space that I can actually use, I'm thinking this may not be too helpful.

To my knowledge it doesn't give you more space to install apps, but shrinks the size of the TWhiz Rom and could all for better performance and smaller backups as well.
