Information:
This is a stock-based ROM that I've made using UCDLK3 firmware for the US Galaxy S3. I've spent a lot of time developing this ROM making it nice and stable and using the tweaks I thought were the best for smoothness, battery life, and stability. This ROM uses a modified, optimized UCDLK3 kernel by me that includes support for init.d scripts and a few extra bells and whistles. The UV/OC kernel is also available for download (see kernel C). Original thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1969201

Video Review (by phonetechkid):


Features:
  • UCDLK3 Base
  • Modified and optimized UCDLK3 kernel by me
  • Extended power menu
  • Extended APN list
  • Smoothness and battery life tweaks
  • Fully de-odexed
  • Fully zipaligned
  • Bashed
  • Rooted
  • init.d script support and tweaks
  • 50% transparency notification bar (available in beta theme)
  • Black notification bar in apps and lockscreen (available in beta theme)
  • ADB support
  • Debloating
  • 23 Toggles Mod (blue)
  • Blue themed battery and notification area
  • AT&T logo removed
  • Wifi Notification removed
  • Google Now
  • S-Voice
  • Android 4.2 Keyboard ported from Nexus 4 system dump
  • Holo-Black Gmail 4.2
  • Samsung International boot animation
  • Increased group messaging size
  • Increased mms size and quality
  • Find My Mobile enabled
  • AT&T Contacts removed
  • System sounds from the Nexus 4
  • No increasing ringtone
  • Modified Samsung launcher with wallpaper scrolling and no page looping
  • SMS split removed, messages with multiple pages combined
  • Blacklisting
  • MMS slideshow removed so MMS appears threaded and individual
  • Multi SMS lock
  • Call block menu in settings
  • Many other tweaks...

Installation Instructions:
  1. Download ROM to SD card
  2. Be sure you are on a T-Mobile-specific i999 TWRP or CWM recovery or else it will not flash! (Important if coming from a ported ROM)
  3. Reboot into recovery
  4. Do a factory reset
  5. Wipe cache and dalvik cache
  6. Wipe system
  7. Flash Rom (This process may take a minute or two)
  8. Wipe cache and dalvik cache again just to be safe
  9. Reboot and enjoy

Post Installation Instructions:
  • It is HIGHLY suggested that you keep ALL Google Now cards off, verify that you are not updating your location with Google Maps (in Maps settings menu). Remember, Google Now automatically turns on your location settings to update through Google Maps, so after enabling Google Now, unless you want your location on all the time, go to Google Maps and turn it off. Your battery will thank you even more.
  • To allow custom boot animations follow the instructions in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...6#post35825846
  • If you get a Google account sign-in error after installing, there is an easy fix. Go to Menu > Settings > Accounts and Sync. Please REMOVE your current Google account and then add it again. I do not know why this happens to some people, but it doesn't seem to be ROM related. It happens on several devices including the Nexus. Removing and then re-adding your account again fixes this problem.

  • You may have to sign into Google accounts manually in settings, as the initial setup screen is bypassed.

Are you getting a status 7 TWRP error? Read the last half of this page http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2189783&page=2 . This explains you need to update recovery to a T-Mobile specific version because the ROM checks to avoid errors. If it sees that you are on a port or a different version of TWRP, then it will cause a TWRP error. If it is crashing TWRP, as in, not responding, then you should verify your MD5 again. Hope this helps. If this doesn't work I need as much information as possible. Thanks!
