ROM is ultra fast, great job. I use it 3 days now and I noticed only two things :
- camera - Quality of photos and video is just fine but sometimes camera force stop problem occurs. I partially solved it with camera restart apk posted in this thread
- modem problem - sometimes I've got no sound during a call (using mk6) - looking for solution - Lockscreen sound enabled fix it for now
But overall Sentinel did his magic again :)

As always, it really depends on how you use your phone. It should be jsut as good, but the Google Now Launcher is quite battery hungry in comparison to Trebuchet.
I'm facing the same battery drain without any special thing that runs in the background...
You mentioned the Google Now Launcher. What is that? The default Launcher, or the Launcher3 launcher?

I also have a question about bootanimations... I can't seem to be able to install a custom one because every time I do the animation is replaced by an android logo.... Is there a problem with me or a bug in the RoM? Thanks
Also, love the ROM, havnt run a single ROM other than yours the day I got my s3! Thanks and keep it up!

I also have problems with call audio using this ROM. But I have also experienced the problem on other kitkat ROMs. So it may be more source related than anything Sentinel has done.

If you do find a solution please post back here.

I have tried swapping modems but that hasn't helped. So its definitely ROM related. If I swap back to a stock based ROM I don't have the problem.

Does anyone know of this problem exists in the cm11 nightlies?

BUG- I Believe its a 4.4 bug but I now can't take photos with the stock camera app due to the message "can't connect to camera" does anyone have a fox? Clearing data and cache = no work

Thanks

I have this bug too with whatever KitKat ROM I install. The only (temporary) solution without having to restart camera is to use this lib here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2505973 .
I use the lib v1.1 in CM11 even though it says omnirom in the name.

Also a question.

In the Camera app.... How do I change the storage location?
Now it stores at the phones internal SD. I want it to save the pictures at the external SD.

First new ROM I flashed in months, loving it!

Question about backing up and Titanium: Nearly every ROM thread I see has some warning about restoring from Titanium backup when installing a new ROM, so is it only useful to restore on the current ROM one has installed to keep using it? I just went through the Play Store and manually installed about 90 apps on Sentinel :silly:

Edit: First overnight using the ROM, woke up and battery had drained completely, phone off :( Have Better Battery Stats running so will charge up and monitor, but has that been the case for others??

    Welcome to SentinelROM for Samsung Galaxy SIII (International Version -i9300 ONLY). Compiled from modded CM11 source. Android 4.4.

    This is one of the most popular ROMs for Nexus 10, Nexus 7, Nexus 4 and HTC One X, and Samsung Galaxy SIII.

    phonehome.png


    This ROM is compiled from CyanogenMod 11 with all the features you get in a CM11 ROM, plus the following features.
    • Zip Aligned
    • Compiled from latest CyanogenMod 11 source by me, not a 'cooked ROM'.
    • Increased volume (not quiet like most CM based ROMs)
    • LMT Pie Controls
    • Improved Web Browsing performance
    • Improved 3D gaming performance
    • Amazing battery life
    • Additional theming and UI customisation
    • FAST support via this page and our Facebook Page
    • A free copy of my music player app
    ________________________


    details.png


    This ROM has been built to enhance the CyanogenMod 11 experience, with faster gaming and web browsing performance (no choppyness in Chrome too!) and best of all, extreme battery life.

    Countless hours have been spent making tweaks to settings to squeeze the most performance I can find out of this ROM while still providing excellent battery life and without the dangers of overclocking and kernel level tweaking.

    I compile this ROM and Kernel from the latest CyanogenMod source code, add my various tweaks and adjustments, then test for stability, so you get all the benefits of CyanogenMod 11, plus my tweaks and extras, all without the instability and inconvenience of flashing CyanogenMod nightlies (which are not designed specifically for the SGS3 like my ROM is.

    The kernel source is available from the CyanogenMod's GitHub.

    None that I am aware of. Please report any bugs you find.

    installation.png


    If installing for the first time:

    To install this ROM you will need to have an unlocked bootloader and a custom Recovery such as TWRP or ClockWorkMod installed (personally I recommend TWRP, I have had issues with restoring backups using CWM).

    1. Copy the downloaded SentinelROM zip to your Internal Storage.
    2. Boot into your custom recovery
    3. Back up your stock ROM
    4. Enter custom recovery
    5. Factory Reset and wipe Cache and Dalvik Cache
    6. Format System Partition
    7. Install the ROM
    8. Install GAPPS package
    9. Reboot. First boot can take up to 5 minutes.

    Important: After installation you will be asked if you want to turn on CyanogenMod Statistics, please leave it off as this is an unofficial/modified build.

    Note: Use of titanium backup to restore apps and data from another ROM is not recommended, and is the source of 90% of user issues, especially when it comes to battery life. Do so at your own risk.

    You may flash other kernels as you wish via recovery. Remember to also flash the correct libraries for any 3rd party kernels. Instructions will be given by the Kernel author. NOTE: Updating the ROM via OTA will also overwrite any custom Kernels you have installed.

    The following mods are developed by 3rd parties and have been tested by SentinelROM Users.

    I can not offer support for these mods, or comment on their affect on performance or battery life. Use at your own risk.
