    i9505G GPE Firmware on i9505 Possible?

    Hi guys,

    Is it possible to flash the GS4 i9505G Google Play Edition firmware directly to an unlocked i9505 [international]? I'd like to rid myself of Touchwiz but would prefer not to have to root & install a custom recovery if possible.

    Thanks

    Android 4.4.2
    PDA I9505XXUFNB8

    Kernal version 3.4.0-481100
    Unrooted

    Not without installing a custom recovery, as the Google firmware is not a Samsung firmware so cannot be installed with Odin or Kies.

    Thanks Greenman. I notice CyanogenMod have an installer that does most of the dirty work for you. Having only played with CM once many years ago, are you aware if it will work with Android Wear?

    I know CM is essentially still Android, but given it's a fork (and cm-10.2.1-jfltexx is the most recent stable version available for my device) I'm not so sure.

    Thanks
