  • same like me, i had GT I9505 suddenly dead not boot up, problem in the cpu board and i went to samsung service center in my country but they reject my phone because this is not region from my country, because i bought from UK. and s4 version of my country only GT-I9500. after that i tried to fix by tutorial from youtube by re heat the cpu board with hair dryer. and working like a charm, but only for 4 days. after that not boot up anymore. and i decide buy used machine of GT-I9500 from online market only 20$, and test it with I9505 screen, working good all sensor and wifi and bluetooth working. after i close the back case until pops all the side, they suddenly dead and cannot be turn on, i have to remove again the back case to start the phone. and also the charging connector always shown charging and make a phone very hot. so i assume is not compatible connector I9505 to I9500. so, i bought the used part but original from online for connector only for 3$ and i buy OEM back case for I9500 for 5$, and now i can use it normal. i can screw the back again and charge fast around 1200 ma. because i see connector original for I9500 is Rev0.8 and I9505 is Rev0.25. tip: flashing back to the kitkat ROM for better battery consumption. better than Lollipop. just love to share.. Good video anyway (restoration date, Aug - sep 2020)

  • Notes about the S4. 1. You cannot use a dock connector flex from an I9500 on a I9505/9506/9507 and vice-versa. Same goes for american versions of the S4. 2. You cannot use a display/midframe assembly of an I9505 on an I9500 motherboard and vice-versa. 3. You cannot use a back battery frame of an I9500 on a I9505 board. (Due to an extra screw hole missing on an I9500 frame.) 4. Korean market S4 parts aren't interchangeable with the international ones due the power and volume buttons attached to the back frame instead of being soldered on the board on international versions.

  • If the phone is detecting the battery but shut down and does it again means it has been water damaged but has been dried and is still functioning, but sometimes it goes to docking mode for no reason (my experience from a Samsung Galaxy express which is similar to the S4)

  • I've still got my S4 and have had issues recently regarding apps not being supported. I'm currently on Android 4.2. It performs OK, if a little slow. Should I upgrade to Android 5.0, which is the OS used in the GT-I9500 model in this video?

  • the i9500 wasnt compatible with your i905 frame which make it dont turn on.. it have a large capacitor shorting with the frame and thats why i couldnt turn on... if your model is i9500.. make sure that the same model will the one you get to. because even mid frames of s4 are different base on their variant models.
