How to flash guide!
First I'm not responsible for your phone getting bricked or explosion in your pocket - whatever things could happen
  1. Do NANDROID and BACKUP of your important things
  2. If you're coming from 4.1.x then FULL WIPE is highly recommended!
  3. Always check MD5 of your downloaded zip file
  4. You will get this installed in three easy steps
    • Go to CWM based recovery by holding HOME- POWER - and VOL UP BUTTON
    • Choose "Install from sdcard"
    • Now click on GlamourS4 zip, work till installer finishes and you're done!



Please respect my hard work and don't copy my work!

v7.0 bugs
- Might random reboot (kernel problem)
- Apps might close with no error sometimes (kernel problem)
- When phone is off phone will turn on without pressing a thing (kernel problem)
- In call when Air Gestures are ON you might get Gesture Services stopped working then simply delete GesturesService.apk
- For some Wi-Fi hotspot doesn't work?!

Conclusion: Samsung didn't give us KitKat and developers compiled a kernel by themselves and yet it's booting so we have to bear those bugs when we want KitKat :/
Try this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/devd...ct/dl/?id=6522
Should be more stable

v6.0 - updated
Every ROM have also few or many bugs:
  • Rotation doesn't work (ArchiPort bug)
  • Homescreen might flicker sometimes (Also ArchiPort bug)
  • Wi-Fi might not work for all (again due to port)
  • Quicksettings got bug when turning off Mobile Network
Be continued...

But yeah overall it's stable and smooth enough for everyday use.

Fix for perfect use:

These are the steps and perhaps someone may also find these steps useful. First of all make a copy of the zip you downloaded so you don't have to waste your time downloading this big file should you mistakenly delete what is important. Do a nandroid backup of your phone as usual. Download Ultimate Kernel Cleaning Script for GS3 and CrossBreeder and transfer to your external card.
1) Replace SecSetupWizard in Apps folder of the zip with the functional one provided earlier in v2.5
2) Replace the SecLauncher3 in the Apps folder of the zip with the one provided by Henry in the TW fix.
3) Copy the sws jar file from the TW fix by Henry to the framework folder of the zip.
4) Replace the SecContactsProvider.apk and SecContacts.apk in the Apps folder of the zip with the ones from v2.5
5) Transfer your zip to an external card
6) Boot to Recovery and flash Ultimate Kernel Cleaning Script for GS3 followed by a Full wipe (data, cache and dalvik or a Megawipe)
7) Flash your zip
8) Reflash Ultimate Kernel Cleaning Script for GS3
9) Flash Crossbreeder and reboot. Done

Optional to make the rom lighter before flashing. Please be sure of what you are doing.
10) Delete unwanted apks from the Apps folder of the zip
11) Delete unwanted language stuffs from the sipdb folder. Please know what you are deleting stands for. en is En = English, fr = French e.t.c
12) Delete unwanted sounds from the subfolders (alarms, ringtone and notifications) in the media folder. Do not touch the UI folder (User interface folder)
13) For transparent weather: Delete weatherwidgetdaemon and accuweatherphone2013 from the zip and then copy the accuweatherphone2013 for XXUFME7 mod by Arsaw to the Apps folder of the zip.

Hope new members who are new to flashing and starting with HLv2.9 Rom will find this useful.

Those are FAQ for old versions, new ones will be up soon
Q: Getting Status 7 error in recovery?!
A: Try to redownload, probably md5 mismatch, therefore something is corrupted in file

Q: Getting many Force Closes after install ROM, what to do??
A: Try to wipe data, could fix those

Q: MEGA won't run on phone?
A: Here you go: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...JlLm1lZ2EiXQ..

Q: Enormous battery drain, what to do?
A: Try to uninstall unnessary apps, keep monitoring them with Better Battery Stats, reflash ROM?

Q: Smart Scroll not working...
A: Yes a lot of users reported that, will be fixed in next version

Q: No mirrors?
A: Will be added in 2 days

Q: Couldn't set lockscreen wallpaper
A: Yes this is to unknown framework related issue, workaround is to set from Settings -> Screen -> Wallpapers

Q: Videorecording doesn't work
A: Yeah it's known bug, this camera is in experimental phase, will be flashable from Aroma next version
There's a way to restore stock app: Open system/app in Root Explorer you will see there 2 SamsungCamera files.
The one you need to modify is SamsungCamera.apkk change it to (.apk) , put extension .bak to SamsungCamera2.apk if you want to get S4 camera back. You can't have more than one app with same resources.

Q:S Health is force closing
A: Remove S Health from multi-window manager

More will be added soon


FIXES:
Wifi FIX:
add this file to system/etc/init.d using root explorer http://www44.zippyshare.com/v/76014834/file.html

I knew it was not going to take very long till we saw the S4 ROM running on our S3.

I just didn't think it was going to be so soon. Now I'm going to be stuck to my seat until I get it
