Default [ROM][JB 4.3] i747z UCUEMJ2 (Modified) Stock TouchWiz No-Knox ROM(Odexed)NEW 11/23/13

***NEW11/11/2013 v3.1 REBUILT FROM SCRATCH using the stock insecure kernel and ROM base. *******
This is for at&t SGH-i747 model only. Do not flash with any other model of Galaxy S3.


i747z v 3.1 November 23, 2013


Green Theme v 3.1

Blue Theme v 3.1


Canadian ROM goodness for US At&t i747 users.


The ROM's name is simply "i747z", in reference to that one letter of the alphabet that differentiates Canadians from Americans. Each will pronounce the name of this ROM differently. Plus, I wanted something simple and stock-like on /Settings/About device for the phone for those who might have company IT Departments viewing their devices. Having something like "Frankenstein's Butthole ROM" on the device kind of gives away your rooted status a bit more. BTW, you may refer to this ROM by the above name, if you like.

The current Jelly Bean 4.3 from Samsung is pretty solid. But, as we all know, for whatever reasons, At&t will take a good ROM and add restrictions and "features" that make it barely usuable.

Our Canadian GSIII brothers, on the otherhand, are usually, mercifully, spared from the full carrier hack-job given to us by At&t.

Luckily Samsung is kind enough to hide the as yet unreleased Canadian carrier ROM features in our at&t UCUEMJ2 leak. Using these ROM features, I have attempted to give us in the US what At&t should have.

This ROM is odexed (re-odexed), as it would come from Samsung. In theory, this should give you better speed and battery performance. I have found it be lightning fast, smooth as silk, with best I've tested battery usage. Let me know what you think.


ROM Features:

-Rooted (Latest SuperSU)
-BusyBox installed
-Based on Stock UCUEMJ2 Touchwiz 4.3 Jelly Bean leak for at&t. Big thanks to @designgears for the leak!
-Insecure Stock UCUEMJ2 kernel Thanks to thanks to @stratatak7 and @upndwn4par
-Odexed ROM. All Modded APKs and JARs properly re-odexed.
-Knox Free and Partially debloated. Feel free to remove whatever else you don't need.
-Unbranded-Generic GS3 build characteristics, started with Rogers base
-Native Call Recording on Menu. Hit Menu button when connected on call.
-Premium Suite...
-Properly functioning Google Now from 4.4 Kit Katt
-Modded Brightness settings for power saving and better screen
-All Samsung language options enabled
-Precise battery mod. (This is what I call my 1% battery mod. There are no percentages on the battery, itself. IMO, not necessary since the option to display remaining battery percentage is available to us in a stock ROM. So, whereas in a stock ROM, the battery image displayed in the status bar will change only after 10-15% is lost or gained. With my theme, the blue or green in the battery image will gain or lose one row of pixels for every 3-4% lost or gained. Even without battery percentages shown, in a day or 2 you will be able to guesstimate how much battery you have left within 5%, in my experience.) Thanks to Wanam and Lidroid
-Torch (flashlight) added to stock QuickSettings Toggles v.3.1
-International Boot Animation. Not sure where I got the Startup/Shutdown sounds. Probably a Wanam ROM along the way.
-Removed at&t's tethering tracking and throttling APNs
-Native data toggle for LTE/3g/4g. (Will say WCDMA for now. It's not)
-Functioning WiFi and Bluetooth Tethering.
-9 Home Screen Launcher. Wallpaper Scrolling enabled. 9 Screen Home with fixed wallpaper avail as add-on.
-Email app, Corporate Exchange policies disabled. http://goo.gl/ShfEg
-White themed email app
-Editable voicemail number
-Correct number displayed in Call Logs when calling with Google Voice.
-Google Voice Voicemails in Native phone app (Call Logs)
-at&t address book removed. You will get no nags to sync with at&t
-Increased number of available Speed Dial Entries to 99.
-Join up to 99 Contacts, instead of 5
-Camera available on calls
-AOSP Emoji keyboard
-Samsung "Find My Mobile"/Samsung Dive enabled in Settings
-Backup to Samsung account now enabled.
-Sync Select Dropbox files with Interior SD account. Native i9300 app.
-Removed "Software Update" option from Settings
-Hardware version shown in Settings.
-Ability to Set Custom Vibrations for each contact
-Option to close browser available on browser menu.
-Removed all carrier Browser Bookmarks. Only 1-preset now, which is Google and is editable.
-Pop-up browser from Galaxy Note 2. http://goo.gl/nGcER
-Extra Touchwiz widgets from I9300 Intl ROM
-New Message app from S4
-Increased allowed size of custom Ringtones.
-Native SIP/VOIP Calling over 3g/LTE via Phone app
-AT&T WiFi Hotspots
-Removed Ongoing Wifi Connected Notifications
-Multiple Widgets on Lock Screen
-Swipe Right from Clock on Lock Screen to bring up Camera
-Updated some but not all of Google Play updatable /system/apps
-Enable dialing contact with motion
-ad blocking with hosts file
-Group SMS
-Unlimited SMS recipient list Fixed in v 1.4
-Various build.prop tweaks.
-12 built in Wallpapers to choose from via native app.
-More tweaks that I can't recall right now. Will edit as I recall.

To Install

-Copy Rom to either sdcard
-Backup Current ROM
-Wipe cache/Dalvik cache. Full wipe Twice. Format /system and /data and /cache. Full factory reset again.

-Flash UCUEMJ2 bootloader THESE ARE FOR at&t's SGH-I747 MODEL AND NO OTHER. IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER MODEL YOU WILL LIKELY BRICK YOUR PHONE (DO NOT FLASH IF YOU HAVE AN SGH-I747M FROM CANADA)

-Flash UCUEMJ2 modem THESE ARE FOR at&t's SGH-I747 MODEL AND NO OTHER. IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER MODEL YOU WILL LIKELY BRICK YOUR PHONE (DO NOT FLASH IF YOU HAVE AN SGH-I747M FROM CANADA)

-Flash ROM from recovery
-Reboot

-Be awesome.

Reodexing .jar files is proving to be quite a challenge on TouchWiz 4.3. So, at this point, to enable the features you need that I have not been able to yet include, I would recommend you install the great Xposed Mod from here...
...and also Wanam's great Xposed mod from
Google Play

v3.0 November 11, 2013. Initial release of TouchWiz Jellybean 4.3

Google Wallet not working as of v3.0. Need a Sprint leak of Touchwiz 4.3 for gs3 and we're back in business.

To Get Google Wallet working Thanks to Loserskater for the modded apk.

Flash i747z version 2.5 or higher
If you currently have Google Wallet installed, sign out of the app
Force Stop on Wallet app
Clear Cache and Clear Data on Wallet app
Delete all traces of it from both locations /system/app and /data/app/
In /system directory, look for build.prop With a Root Explorer, rename file to build.prop.bak
Find build.prop.bak_GW. Rename to build.prop.
Reboot, twice.
Open Google Wallet app, not prior to this step.
Set up Wallet with your Googe Account, including Tap and Pay. Make sure you have all your cards added.
Reboot
Check what Tap and Pay says in "About" section of the app
Confirm what happens on transaction

Then.....

with a Root Explorer, find /system/build.prop (new one you just renamed prior) and rename to build.prop.bak_GW ...or just delete
Rename build.prop.bak to build.prop.
Reboot twice.
Check Google Wallet again and you will see it Tap and Pay still works

Enjoy!


================================================== ================================================== ================================

**As suggested by darocks1999, what worked for him was downloading Rescan Media Root from Google Play http://goo.gl/ruokP **
Open the app, allow root permission, Click the "Re-Enable Media Scanner" button. Maybe to be safe back out of the app and Re-enable it again. You should then reboot. I think you can then uninstall Rescan Media Root.
================================================== ================================================== ================================

Thanks to....

If you have included the UCLK3 modem, Canadian users will also need to flash their modem to make it work. Just pointing that out. Sounds good (should look good, *hint*add some screenies of both themes you have included*hint*) though!

Well, this sounds pretty much like an enhanced stock rom, which I for one enjoy the most. Looking forward to some screen shots & maybe some feedback. Been around here for too long to still be the guinea pig.

Stock qmg. Sorry. You should be able to make it work, though, if you mind an animation zip around on xda. Not high on my priority list, right now.
