Recommended Install Instructions:
Optional: update bootloaders/modem to MG2 using the link below.
WARNING: This is for the AT&T I747 ONLY. Although rare, updating bootloaders can brick your device. Please use caution when updating! Again, we take no responsibility for anything that may happen to your device.
Here is the complete UCDMG2 firmware minus recovery
This will update your phones firmware, bootloader, modem.... while retaining your custom recovery.
The script will check the file integrity so if the checksums do not match it will abort.
As always use with caution.
Our families for putting up with us being on the computer for so long.
Samsung All of our users!
XDA:DevDB Information S3Rx, a ROM for the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III
Contributors loserskater, enewman17 ROM OS Version: 4.3.x Jellybean ROM Kernel: Linux 3.0.x ROM Firmware Required: I747UCUEMJB Based On: Samsung Touchwiz
Version Information Status: Stable Current Stable Version: 2.2 Stable Release Date: 2013-09-18 Current Beta Version: 3.0 Beta Release Date: 2013-12-18
The Play/Pause function of "Music controls" does not currently work once the phone goes into deep sleep. Which is about 3 seconds. Need someone skilled with kernel development to give us a hand on this one.
AOSP Mms has a bug that when selecting your own contact in a message thread, it will force close the contacts app
Battery Notifications might be a little screwey the first charge. Might have to toggle the setting once you actually have a full charge and the notification, then unplug. If turned off the Notifications should be gone from now on.
There is a small line between the pull down toggles and the brightness slider when messing with the notification drawer color/transparency
Status bar might be black upon reboots till the status bar is touched then it will return to what it was.
Tell us if you notice anything else.
Install "Greenify" from the play store. Awesome App I love it.
Importatnt: Remember that after flahing a new ROM that it will take a few days to see optimum results. Understand you just restored a bunch of data setting your phone up... I bet most of you do this right away... Shame on you. My suggestion is after flashing the new ROM please wait about 5-10 min at the start screen... let the phone catch a signal and let settle down for a few. After finishing the first start setup... please let it sit a few more minutes... let the phone be cool to the touch (mine gets pretty warm after doing a nandroid and a new flash) the scripts will load and the cache files will build and everything will be ready for you to begin restoring all your apps
GPS not locking: Unfortunately This is going to happen to some when coming from AOSP based ROMs and other carrier ports.
A couple common fixes include...
================================================== ================================================== ================================================== =============== 1. Easiest and most reliable way. Try this first!
Enter the Samsung service mode by typing this code into the dial pad *#197328640#
Then go to Mainmenu>UMTS>Common>NV REBUILD>NV REBUILD> (Important: don't exit the menu yet!)
Wait 30+ sec
Long press power button and select "Restart / Reboot"
Now check your GPS from any software that may use GPS like "Maps" or "GPS Status"...
2. Returning to the stock ROM via ODIN, acquire a GPS lock then reboot into Recovery.. Wipe and Flash new ROM.
I recommend trying Chainfire's MOBILE ODIN first before the desktop version, it's really easy to use and it's free to XDA users HERE.
You can flash an ODIN package right from your phone and still retain your custom recovery, simply exclude it from the list of partitions to flash.
It will also inject ROOT if the ODIN package does not already have it... makes things really simple.
3. Restoring a nandroid of a TouchWiz ROM with a known working GPS status, make sure all location services are enables and can obtain a GPS lock. (go to additional steps now if needed) Reboot, Wipe and Flash New ROM...
Additional steps if required before flashing new ROM:
Backup your internal storage and take out your sd-card now... just in case stuff gets deleted. Do a Factory Reset form within the restored TW nandroid. Reboot... Skip all the setup stuff... acquire a GPS lock again... Reboot into recovery Wipe and Flash the new ROM.
GPS and Location Services: If you have Google Maps installed and Google Now, you will notice Maps uses your location services a lot during the day. Apparently Google thinks we need our location tracked 24/7. Turning GPS on only when needed will help eliminate the wakelocks created by maps. Going a step further you may also want to disable the "Use Network Location", This will also stop other apps form getting your location... Most apps will let you enter your location manually so it's not really a big deal turning it off, especially when your talking about increasing your battery life.
First of all I think there are a lot of misconseptions about Li-ion Batteries vs. there Ni-Mh and Ni-Cd counterparts. A lot of good information can be found here http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/a...ased_batteries.
Short story is Li-ion batteries like to be fully charged. And will give you the best performance when they are fully charged. Continuously discharging your battery till it almost dies everyday is actually hurting it. So if you want your battery to last a long time please charge it and don't worry about how long or how much screen time you can get on a single charge... your killing your battery. And continuously discharging to 0 you will get fewer charge cycles before the capacity of your battery drops. Li-ion batteries do not suffer from the dreaded memory effect like Ni-Mh and Ni-Cd, but they do wear out overtime due to varies conditions.... Li-ion batteries work by ions moving between positive and negative electrodes that are sandwiched between a thin membrane. Where as the Ni-Mh and Ni-Cd work by a chemical reaction between two metals and a catalyst. Over time the metals crystallize during charging and cause what we call the Memory Effect. Li-ion batteries have a longer life span and will keep there rated capacity longer over more charge cycles, this is why they use them.
Another thing is... calibrating your battery is total B.S. The battery your phone came with is smart. It has it's own little micro controller that regulates itself, during charging and use. During normal charging and uses the system and battery will normalize themselves.

Ok. That was a little freaky. Went to download from DevHost, Rom was dated 4-26, 746 MB and it stuck on waiting. Refreshed thread, ROM is dated 4-27 and up to 1 GB.
I have a feeling I'm glad my first try didn't download. :thumbup:
Looking forward to giving this a run guys!
EDIT: see why now...I had clicked on the "non-aroma"...sorry for wasted post.
