Hey Galaxy S3 users!
I wanted to share a ROM I am starting to build, it’s in its infant stages(notice version 0.3) so this ROM isn’t for everyone.
I wanted to build a ROM for especially for noobs, for those of you who are just getting into the game. I do receive a ton of emails from noobs being totally disappointed after trying advanced ROMs like CM9/CM10. But those custom ROMs aren’t always meant for noobs and beginners who are just getting into Android rooting and ROMs so I wanted to build a ROM that gives you extra features without sacrificing stock ones so they can slowly transition to other great custom ROMs already here on XDA.
Anyways, if you have any suggestions and you are a total boob and want certain features added/removed, let me know and will work on the next versions.
- Built off Stock ROM (USB Kies and everything else works from stock)
- Custom Boot Animation support
- App 2 ExtSD support
- Init.d support
- Jelly Bean Boot Animations
- Google Now
- Speed tweaks for 3G/HSPA/WiFi
- Power saving features
- Graphic acceleration for your photos/videos
- More coming soon! (Let me know what you really want!)
- I left all bloatware on for now (slowly removing one by one, please tell me which one you think absolutely isn’t needed)
v0.3 Added App to ExtSD Hack, allows you to store apps on External SD.(thank to Mattiadj) ) (There's a battery bug in this version but you can flash the latest HighOnAndroid UVALEM kernel to fix!!!)
v0.2 Added Custom Boot Animation Support, Extended Reboot Menu(thanks to Clark44!), 15-toggles (thanks to Electron73!), some bloatware removed.
v0.1 Based off Stock UVLEM, Jelly Bean Animations, GoogleNow, speed tweaks for WiFi, power saving features, and graphic acceleration so your photos/videos should be higher quality.
From v0.3 on, you will have App 2 ExtSD hack enabled. Meaning if you have an external microSD card into your phone, the system will swap your internal storage and extSD space. So, your internal storage becomes external SD card while your external SD card becomes internal storage. This allows you to increase the number of apps you can put on your phone depending on the size of your microSD card. (So if you use 64GB micro SD Card, you can get 64GB instead of stock 16/32GB.)
Please make sure your microSD card is in FAT32 format, if in EXTFAT format.
What happens if you don't have a microSD card inserted?
Then the script detects that and your internal storage is used normally.
If you want to disable this feature completely, simply use ES FIle Explorer, enable ROOT/MOUNT, then delete the file /system/etc/init.d/11extUS.
Also, if you want to keep the feature, you can boot your phone with your microSD card out, then put it in after your phone boots, then the App 2 ExtSD hack will not be enabled. Confused? Watch the video I am uploading soon.
*Note – This ROM is for NOOBs and for those of you who want to stay stock but get better performance/features over stock ROM.
P.S. I support the noobs. We were all once noobs asking the dumbest questions in the world, no there’s no such thing as a dumb question, that’s how you get smarter. Without noobs, we wouldn’t have any experts.
