Samsung Galaxy S4 gets an experimental port of Android L [GT-I9505]

Finally a Samsung phone is getting the taste of Android L. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is all set to get a working port of Android L soon as XDA member, ISF, releases an experimental port of Android L for the Galaxy S4. At this time, the Android L port only installs perfectly and shows the Android L boot animation, nothing else.

It’s safe to assume here that it’s going to take time for this Galaxy S4 Android L build to do more than just showing the boot animation. Right now, the developer is looking for help from the community to build a custom kernel for Android L for the Galaxy S4 GT-I9505. Plus, there are issues with some of the .lib files which need to be addressed. If you’re someone who understands this stuff, and would love to help, head over to this development thread on XDA to help ISF.

So far, only HTC One M7 and LG Optimus G are the two non-nexus devices that have received the Android L port. The Galaxy S4 is only going to be 3rd non-nexus device to get Android L.

We’ll update this page as soon as the development on Android L port for Galaxy S4 makes some progress. You can bookmark this page to check back later.
