[GUIDE] Hellfire SGS3 Roms
So first off this is pretty much going to house the same information that the g2x guide that TOG565 and I did. Obviously this will be for the SGS3. The original post here.
all things related to x0xhellx0x rom's and other HellfireJelly tweaks / fixes / add-ons
This is the place where we ease the burden on HELL and utilize open source for its' intended purpose...to help one another for FREE! Kinda like kickin apple, windows, etc. directly in the balls. Please ask your questions regarding issues here. If we cannot figure it out, they will be forwarded to the master. While this is an open thread there are a few rules:
1.) Stop what you are doing and go thank HELL...we'll wait..... (if your out of thanks use the xda premium app, you get unlim thanks)
2.) READ!!!!! And when you think you've read enough....READ some more!
3.) No complaining about tweaks the DEV built into the ROM. More than likely it is just eye candy which is easily removed. Personally, most enjoy the eye candy and is what separates DEV's from each other. Remember, they do this for us for free and could easily dev their rom as they like it and share it with no one. If you do not like something, o.k. ill say it i.e. flames, just read up on how to change it.
4.) For specific issues regarding rom's daily driver performance or if you find something that has helped, please submit via xda PM to me so we can keep the thread clean and reader friendly. If you like certain themes, apps, apps that created an issue, etc. you can post here with screen shots. Let's open it up a bit but stay on task.
For the noobs, not a bad word, we were all there at one point too, please seek-out other threads for CWM / rooting issues. These have been addressed by some great dev's on here. Give them their due and seek-out the answers on their threads; thanking them appropriately.
Here we go........
1.) DO NOT use CWM mount/storage to load zip files onto your SD. There has been a known issue with CWM corrupting the files during transfer. Use a stick/adapter and load directly from PC. INSTEAD FOR THE SGS3 I RECOMEND TWRP FOR YOUR CHOICE OF RECOVERY
2.) Ensure you have at least 50% battery left
3.) DO NOT touch the Galaxy for AT LEAST for ten minutes after first boot. Allow the ROM to 'move in' before changing the furniture.
4.) Complete several on/off cycles BEFORE you report an issue.
5.) Reboot at least once daily so that things can get moved back to their proper spots after the party.
6.) UPDATE your apps when installing an updated rom!!!!! Apps are one of the biggest causes of issue's with new roms as the app dev's struggle to keep-up with the master. Worst case you have to uninstall and re-install some apps.
7.) SEEK your answer first...i.e. slow data - check your settings, is the proper one checked, cycle through them all to see if it repairs itself, etc.
8.) When in doubt wipe it out, fix the permissions and reboot
9.) Ensure you have updated super user or supersu and checked unknown sources under security in settings.
10.) If you have done it all and first boot isn't running right...do it over but skip Google load on first run. Follow through everything else, let sit, reboot then load. If you are still having issue's then, and only then, should you be asking for help.
11.) If all resources are exhausted and you are standing on a ledge....ask away but please, please include what you have done to your phone after ruining its' Virginesque state. i.e. ov'd, uc'd, donkey punched, v6'd, dropped in the toilet, changed kernels, etc. We use this info to compare with other known issues or to try and replicate your exception/process failure while "seeing" what the source of the issue is.
***These are just SUGGESTIONS - don't be the one moron who asks why it is so or that you've never done these and your phone could beat up my phone, etc. If you use them great, if you do not great, if you lit yourself on fire great........etc., etc.

*****If you use a link here THANK the respective DEV's!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*****ensure you have CWM, or TWRP installed and are ROOTED*****
search threads on how to's or if you are unsure
TWRP <- just basically use this. It’s really sweet!
1.) Backup your current setup to make sure have something to go back to thats stable just in case
2.) Download and transfer ROM zip & other file(s) to SD Card in Galaxy
3.) Power down, then power into recovery.
4.) Factory wipe with format of /system and the caches
5.) Flash Rom and fix permissions.
*****DO NOT touch the lil hellion no matter how he temps you for 10 minutes
*****If you notice after 10 minutes that you have no data connection, IMMEDIATELY reboot*****
7.) Set-up, reboot
That’s it for now. Will add lots more later. Thanks to TOG565 for letting me liberate his words. Thanks to Hell for doing what he does. Thanks for all the devs who work tirelessly on XDA to provide us with such awesomeness!! And of course thanks end users just like you.
