Samsung Galaxy S4 ROM combines TouchWiz and stock Android

0. phoneArena 23 Aug 2013, 03:49 posted on

Several weeks ago, we told you about MoDaCo.SWITCH and its first iteration. Simply put, it was meant to allow HTC One users to have both stock Android and Sense-flavored ROMs onto their units, with the option to easily switch between the two UIs. Well, MoDaCo.SWITCH is now available for the Samsung Galaxy S4 as well...

I think every OEM should provide an option to turn off manufacture's skin.

Just port the s4's camera app to a stock jb and am in. The only thing holding me back from ditching touchwiz is the camera app.

There are a few other features in touchwiz that I'd miss.. like how the contacts are handled - swiping left to text, right to call.

The dialer is much nicer than stock as well.

Overall Samsung did a great job with touchwiz! I put a stock ROM on my Note 2 and had to go back to a touchwiz based ROM.

It would be better if a Touchwiz framework emulator was made so that stick TW apps could run on AOSP roms without hassle.

I am running LS 2.9 4.2.2 on my I9300 but if there is one thing that I miss it's the stick samsung keyboard...

This is nice to have both options, so that we can use whichever we want.
