Blekota S5 Lite ROM for Galaxy S3 (I9300)


Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and you are not satisfied with your current Android? Does it bother you that Samsung did not release an update to the new Android 4.4 KitKat and you would like to have it? If you like the environment of the new Samsung Galaxy S5 and also want to have the phone version of Android OS 4.4.2 KitKat, you can try this Custom ROM which of your Galaxy S3 makes Galaxy S5.


First of all, I'm not responsible for your phone getting bricked or whatever things could happen
Do a NANDROID BACKUP of your current ROM first!

Base ROM:

3) Choose "Install ZIP from sdcard"
4) Choose ROM zip file
5) Go through Aroma Installer and select, what you want

If you wanna make a mirror, please ask me first.

(NEW) V12 (1.01 GB, DEV DB, AROMA) - (MD5: 00f16558412b4f0939891fda4fafea39)

(NEW) V12 (1.01 GB, MEGA, AROMA) - (MD5: 00f16558412b4f0939891fda4fafea39)


After flashing, for better performance go to Settings - Power saving - Power saving mode, turn it ON, go to Restrict performance and uncheck all options if they are on. It will turn Power saving off.


If phone won't boot after flashing the ROM, flash STOCK Kernel


Notes:
- The modem is not included in this ROM. You will keep your current modem. To change modem this will need to be done with Odin.
- This ROM is built for standard DPI. If you wish to change it that is fine but I don’t take requests to fix DPI issues.
- I made this ROM for my own personal enjoyment and it works fine for me. But what works for me may not work for you. I merely put together what I like and use. If you don't like it then please don't flash it or even download it and chose another ROM.

Why even base a ROM on Archi's port? It isn't that stable yet.

I get that people want's to create new ROM's based on his port but this is just ridiculous..
