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.
