back-to-n00t; Bring the LTE fun back to 3G
/* Introduction */
Previously, Korean developers were porting i9300 ROMs to e210s.
How ironic, we are now porting e210s ROM back to i9300!
The Korean letter "눝", pronounced "noot", symbolizes LTE(as you can see).
/* Overview */
Touchwiz Android 4.4.4 for Exynos Galaxy S3 3G
Ported from Exynos Galaxy S3 LTE
Deodexed, zipaligned, uncompressed
Since this no longer bases on N7100 ROM, this is much more stable than other KitKat ports
/* Disclaimer */
Your warranty is now void.
I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. Hard. A lot.
/* More disclaimer */
Unlike Besonderes, everyone is encouraged to fork this project and make his or her own ROM based on this project.
