    Last week we shared that the regular edition of the Samsung Galaxy S4 (and the HTC One) will work with the Google Play Edition Firmware ROM installed. Unfortunately, at that time, Verizon's version of the device would be delayed because of the differing radios from the Google Edition. Of course, our community of developers are so good, they prove that the delays don't have to be very long. Fruitful Devs have already made the stock Android Galaxy S4 ROM available for the Verizon version of the S4. It's a direct port from the GT-I9505. Here's a quote from the XDA dev below regarding this ROM,

    Here's a link below to the XDA source of this ROM. Enjoy!

    I'm guessing the GSM S4s and HTC Ones are the ones that can take the GE software via factory recovery but because of VZWs binaries, we have to use a ROM. Oh well, one way is better than no way.
