In order to install Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow CyanogenMod CM13 (ZNH5YAO0J3) custom ROM on your Samsung Galaxy S4, you must own the GT-I9505 (jfltexx) international LTE model, root it, back up its data using Clockwork Mod (CWM) Recovery/ TWRP, clear its memory and install the USB driver on your PC, because otherwise, the phone won’t be recognized. Charge its battery up to at least 80 percent and then download CyanogenMod CM13 (ZNH5YAO0J3) Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow custom ROM and Google Apps to your computer, and copy the files to your Galaxy S4 after connecting the phone to it, using a cable. The CyanogenMod Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow zip file will be placed into the phone’s storage memory, then you will turn it off and disconnect it from PC.
Long press Volume down and Power buttons to boot into Recovery mode and after reaching the TWRP settings menu, you’ll clear the phone’s memory by tapping the Wipe option. Then, perform a factory reset by selecting Swipe to Factory Reset and go back to TWRP settings, where you’ll choose “Install”. Select the .zip file in the phone’s memory, then return to TWRP menu setting, where you’ll tap “Swipe to Confirm Flash”.
After a few minutes, you will see a message that reads “Successful” and the installation will complete. If you’re facing boot loop problems, go back to TWRP settings, and select “Wipe cache/dalvik”. Using the same method, you will need to install Google apps from recovery mode. That’s it!
