Introduction:

Some of you may already know my JB 4.1.2 based Samsung Galaxy S3 ROMs, if not, have a look here

Having been inspired by some great developers like Wanam and some other guys I cannot remember, I´ve decided to create my own ROM for this device.

I´ve created this ROM for myself, I want to share it with you though. This ROM is meant to be used as a daily driver for people who actually use their phone a lot and are in need of a stable, simple and reliable system. It is highly debloated and optimized to bring you the best compromise between high performance and a good battery life

These versions are to be considered as initial releases since some Mods which were possible in JB 4.1.2, cannot be built by now. I need to figure out first, what Samsung changed in the newer Framework.

Feel free to help me out with some input if you´re able and I´ll see what I can do

What to expect from this ROM:

- smooth Android performance and perfect balance between power and high battery lifetime.
- bloatfree, adfree and lightweight
- highly customizable
- useful built in Mods

What not to expect from this ROM:

- lots of useless mods or placebo tweaks
- lots of bugs
- exaggerated "fancy" themes.


How to install:

- create a NANDROID Backup of your old ROM, just in case you want to switch back.
- wipe your phone by using Philz´s Touch Recovery "clean before install new rom"
- install this ROM and have a good time!


You use this ROM at your own risk, in case you brick your phone by not being careful, I won´t take any responsibility.

@GorG

1. Did you change the statusbar icons like in your 4.1 roms or are they stock?

2. Have you fixed the light unlock effect in this version?

This initial release is 100% Stock like, not themed yet. I´ll have to port my Leak JB 4.2.2 Theme first..

The fix will be presented in another thread, have to create some packages first

Hi
Is there any one using this ROM?
Tell us whether is there is a efs issue?
Is the modem included able to convert v1 to v2 efs? Worried about losing my IMEI and S/n

The included Modem is for EFS v2 and will be flashed with this ROM It´s just to make sure, no user who used an older Base ( older than at least MG4 ), loses his IMEI. Flashing a newer Firmware without updating your Modem is a bad idea since some users actually still use obsolete Modems..

Even if you should lose your IMEI, you can recover it by flashing at least a newer Modem ( MG4+ ) It´s not a bad idea to create a EFS Backup first
