    Ok, so I'm in the process of installing the Infamous S4 ROM. It is almost done but it gives me 6 options for kernels. The first 3 are for my phone (T-Mobile S4) but I don't know which one I should use.
    First says "BioShock TMO/CAN Kernel - My daily driver"
    Second says "Infamous TMO/CAN Kernel- Great stable kernel"
    Third says "Infamous TMO/CAN Kernel - 64gig ext friendly" I presume this last one isnt for me since my sd is only 32 gigs.
    Anyone know which one to flash?

    They are all usable kernels. I would say the first or second one. Developer uses 1 as daily driver, so that is good. 2 is declared stable.. Of the 2 I would choose the 2nd one.

    Thanks, ended up going with that one. I can't believe it but I don't like this ROM at all. It was advertised as a lag free ROM but it lags more than stock TouchWiz and i cant modify the UI as much as i thought because the framework is incompatible according to 3minit. Not sure what it is, might have to go back to CyanogenMod.

    If I get a rom that doesn't work would restoring a nandroid fix it? The goldeneye one looks pretty cool but it's based on the international firmware

    Yes but typical rule of thumb is, if you are on a US carrier, don't flash an international ROM.

    It's based on the international firmware but it was made for the T-Mobile variant. Its specifically made for it, not just compatible. I was just wondering if that's common. He looks like he's a well-known developer

    Not typically. International variants usually get better ROMs, and usually aren't ported to the US.

    I know the developer says it is modified for Tmo...but I dislike the idea of ported ROMs. Its one more thing that can go wrong.

    Just noticed that myself, most of the TouchWiz based ROMs like Omega and Wanamlite are made for international versions only

    Just asking, what will happen to those US phones if you flash an international ROM to it? Yea I know its a noob question.

    If it's a port it could work, if you use the file for the actual international version it could potentially brick it

    Oh ok thanks for that. So that means the US version use a different form of encoding from the international model?

    Yes, the firmware is different since the hardware is different (Quad-core vs Octa-core for example)

    I just had someone ask me about a ported ROM to Verizon earlier this week. I think the port was incorrect and they bricked their device.
