If you like slimmed down, debloated ROMs....DO NOT FLASH THIS ROM!


I have noticed too many issues on those ROMs removing too many files, then there are users that want this app or that app. I believe in getting everything I paid for from Samsung and Sprint and The People's ROM has always stood for stability balanced with performance and battery life.
I will happily help anyone remove any apps they don't want as I am sure will The People. Also The People's ROM has always been about The People: Users helping users, RCs and RTs joining in to offer choices and aid to all without any flaming. We politely remind those to search and answer the question at the same time. Please respect all members.

I am by no means a Developer. The true developers have provided the code for all the mods included in this ROM. I just put together my own personal ROM with lots of help (see thanks section) and want to share it with all my friends here on XDA.

TPR GS3.31 (MK3 - 4.3)
DOWNLOAD: (Dev-host click the small download button in lower center)

Big thanks to Rompnit, Cnexus, Dazednconfused, Thunderstick, Crawj for helping get this 4.3 basic upgrade out and all the people thanked below as well!!!!

Hotspot toggle
Flashlight toggle
Gear watch compatible
Stops ND8 Nag
Adds Wicked ROM Control (Thanks @dazednconfused)
Clock control
Network Transfer speed indicator control
Xposed installer
Battery bar settings
Status bar icon control

MIRROR: Thanks @tazfanatic

YOU MUST NOT FORMAT OR WIPE SYSTEM!!! Wipe data only (you can try dirty flashing at your own risk)
(Clean flash sometimes needs a second boot or maybe it was just my phone)
If you get stuck at the logo, try flashing a TW ROM first like the 4.3 stock deodexed or TPR 3.17 below.

I apologize that I cannot support this like I have in the past...but The People are here to support each other. If good flashable mods are contributed I will post them in the posts below. Thank you to all The People for contributing to the best ROM and thread on the GS3!!!

Change to messaging app without my awesome purple icons with this:

To change the Long Press Menu button to no longer kill apps see this post and be sure to thank Rompnit!

Clean flash is recommended as a lot has changed in MD4. If you clean flashed 3.16 you should be ok to dirty flash 3.17 but YMMV. Extra flashables in Post 2

ROM does not change baseband (Modem)!!! Get latest baseband and firmware here! Thanks Freeza!

VIDEOS (updated videos coming soon)

Huge thanks to by friend Qbking77 for making these videos. Give his videos a thumbs up!

Go thank Rompnit in his Morphology thread here

ALWAYS Backup before flashing ANYTHING. With that said this is at your own risk and just rooting may result in refusal of warranty service. I am not responsible for any loss of data and subsequent losses resulting. I am not reponsible for your significant other leaving you, dog bites, the world not ending at the end of the Mayan calendar, any war, the cancellation of your favorite television show, epileptic fits from staring at your awesome phone, no more twinkees in the world or for the zombie apocalypse!

If you like my work consider buying me a Smirnoff Triple Black clear malt beverage or a simple thanks. If you don't like it, I am sorry.

Known issues: 64GB sd cards need to be formatted to FAT32 to work on Ktoonsez kernel or Agat's kernel. Choose the stock kernel option!
Thanks to Y.G. for testing that on Agat's kernel.

No charge animation or LED on Ktoonsez or Agat's kernel when phone is off on some phones
Phone will not reboot with headphones plugged in on Ktoonsez kernel on some phones
DO NOT choose no kernel option in the installer if on Ktoonsez kernel as it will delete the ktweaker app and you will need to reflash the kernel to get it back. Thank you Stylez for finding this.
Ink effect not working on MD4 yet

Tip: Install Media Scan Root from Play and disable media scanner to prevent MEDIA bug from draining battery upon boot. (Thanks Team Kernelizer) (May not be needed with Rompnit's addition of the CM team fix)
