Hiya guys.
My daughter has sent me her S3 to repair (broken screen) and now that it's up and running again I'd like to root it and throw a ROM on there to make it as reliable as possible (so as I don't get it sent to me again! Any recommendations?
Kitkat would be nice but the main thing is reliability.

Thanks

For stability, it'd have to be 4.1.2 to 4.3. You could try CM, Omni or Slimkat for 4.4 but you'd have to deal with any crashes, glitches etc

Stock is still the most stable, but also the slowest. My recommendation is one of Archis pre rooted ones and some debloating.

Tapped with Tapatalk on my GT-I9300 running rooted and debloated stock 4.3.

Best Rom requests are against xda rules, as they can cause bad feeling. Best try them for yourself.
