Download speed

I can only download with 20kb/s. Why? Can you upload on Mega or Google Drive? or can any other one upload it there for me?

EDIT: A friend of mine has downloaded it.

Made the move to this rom earlier today as it was a slow day at work :) SMS is working fine, just tested now again and message was delivered straight away. If it makes a difference I'm using the Hangouts app for SMS as well rather than the built in messaging client.

Service message sending is bugged, other stuff are working perfectly.

    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
    Havily debloated
    De-KNOXed
    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.
    Please read https://github.com/arter97/back-to-n00t/blob/master/README

    /* Supported device */

    Galaxy S3 3G International (GT-I9300)
    Galaxy S3 SK-3G (SHW-M440S)

    /* What you need to know */

    'Open' does not mean 'no-respect'
    Leave credits to original developers

    The ROM file contains kernel modified specifically for this ROM.
    This ROM is heavily debloated.
    This ROM does not supports any other custom kernels including arter97 kernel.
    This is based on Korean firmware, some stuffs may remain in Korean(e.g. Dialer).
    BusyBox or Superuser is not included!

    /* Kernel */

    Toolchain optimizations with Linaro 4.9
    Config optimizations
    Unaligned access enabled
    Deadline I/O scheduler with latency improved
    Uses newly improved LZO for ramdisk & zImage and swap
    AIO(Asynchronous I/O) enabled and improved 30%
    Take advantages with Android 4.4.4 with extra free kbytes tunable
    MMC and ext4 performance improved
    ARCH_POWER enabled
    New ARM instructions set
    Full unaligned access enabled
    Linaro's power-efficient workqueues

    Who prefer this over the current Status bar?

    I'm thinking of bringing SystemUI.apk from Besonderes ROM.

    This not only gives you S5 look, but also reduces lag on pulling down the status bar.

    Hit thanks if you want this to be included in back-to-n00t V3.

    /* Troubleshooting */

    Few tips from @zapty
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=59055427&postcount=2451

    Hello everyone ,
    for the last few days i have tried to help you guys with some problems , so that you can use this rom as a daily driver .
    So @arter97 and me had a little chat over twitter , where he agreed to give you guys a new build with all the bug fixes and improvements , and after giving you the new build he will mark this thread as finished that is no more development can take place after the v7 , So after this build i should see none of you complaining as i run this rom with all the fixes integrated and it is flawless . So do not bother arter97 after he releases this new build , yes if you have some question you can ask me , will most probably solve it for you , because i have been using this rom for a long time and i myself have solved most of the issues i used to get . Get ready and dont ask for ETA's he will give you the new build or i should say the final build and then he is done with this project . Thank you i hope you Co-operate !!

    Hello , @arter97 So i will link all those fixes that you might want to integrate . Also i will be posting a link for the CSC , may be you can replace this very CSC wit the one in the ROM , this helps with the 2g /3g toggle in settings , may be you can link my post for the step by step instructions to get 2g /3g toggle in the settings "http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=58931189&postcount=2423" that will help users , also may be you can edit the OP saying that this firmware can now be used with other kernels that support this rom as i used ARCHI KERNEL AND BOEFFLA and both worked fine . so here are the links to the fixes .
    New CSC :- http://d-h.st/7KI
    Telephony fix :-http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=3097440&d=1420370418 that enables 2g/3g toggle to work by my step by step instructions whose link i posted above , having that on O.P will prevent the users from asking the same question again and again .
    JustArchi's camera fix :-http://vk.com/doc10926468_344278240?hash=c549a21a3b6efceafd&dl=6f109b9bd6b15b14d3, my camera was not working when i flashed the rom so did the cameras of many users . integrating it will fix camera for evryone.
    Also the BLUETOOTH FIX that you were talking about :-https://mega.co.nz/#!F9NyEayT!HYelXBxnLIG4GdgjPJv9XUiPKxkCRtje08IlfFE6dMM
    I think that is all , these three are the issues that users complained about. And yeah thanks @arter97 for your great work. :)
