I strongly recommend performing a Nandroid backup before installing Rom

Installation without wipe:

-Download, and save zip file to internal sdcard
-Go to recovery
-Select Wipe cache
-Go to Advanced and Select Wipe dalvik cache
-Select Install Rom SD card

Installation with Full wipe:

-Install latest PhilZ Recovery with PC Odin - Flash Guide, Thanks to @rootSU
-Download, and save zip to internal sdcard
-Go to recovery, Select Wipe data, Wipe cache
-Go to Advance and Select Wipe dalvik cache
-Go to Mounts and storage, select Format system
-Select Install Rom from SD card
Note, first boot takes about 5-10 mins, so don't panic
Reboot device

Ultra clean installation [PhilZ CWM]:

#1 download rom .zip & place it in your external SDcard
#2 reboot to CWM (yeah, make sure you have the latest version.. :good:)
#3 perform these steps while in CWM:
- nandroid backup (nah, it's always good to have at least one!)
- install zip → choose zip from storage/sdcard1 -> make sure CWM recognizes your sdcard properly, if so, go back to the main menu,
- wipe data/factory reset → clean to install new rom
- mounts and storage → format /data and /data/media (/sdcard) (it will erase all of your data from internal memory, make sure in #1 that you have the right one zips to flash rom placed in external!); it may take up to 30 seconds, wait patiently
- install zip → choose zip from storage/sdcard1 -> flash Neat
#4 be happy with fully cleaned device running smoothest stock-based rom around here :cool:

P.S.1. Remember to backup data you want to keep, f.e. photos - place it on your computer temporary.
P.S.2 It will NOT wipe your external storage(external SDcard I mean), don't worry. :)

Thanks @malachow

Thanks to @savadam

Critic from first User/Tester

Neat Rom for S3 is not only simple, neat, stripped of bloatware; it actually runs smoothly. Sale is like a chef mixing , matching, splicing and dicing to create a dish that is palatable to the user. The installation process was remarkable, it included everything for everyone. The Kernel and mod selection is amazing and provides the user with ample choices. Battery life on the Rom is also great (tested with Siyah kernel). This Rom is Sale's first Samsung S3 (4.1.2) Rom and I wasn't disappointed. Sale has being creating Roms for S2 for sometime, his dedication and support is amazing. This dedication to his work will set this Rom apart from the rest. I can guarantee once you have tried this Rom, you will never go back.

Battery Saving Tips Here

  1. The screen causes excessive battery drain. You will need to reduce your screen brightness to about 30-40% instead of being at automatic.
  2. Disable hepatic feedback
  3. Use a dark back ground. Using a live wall paper wil also drain your battery
  4. Turn WiFi off
  5. GPS or location by network off ( use GPS only when needed)
  6. There are other factors that affect battery consumption on your phone, these includes AutoSync Mail, apps like facebook, Whatsapp, Google + and Maps. You can disable auto sync feature for your gmail or get a better email app. Autostarts App can be used to disabe certain apps from autostarting. Cautiously disable apps, if doubt don't touch it.

    To get an idea of what is causing battery drain (Wakelocks), I suggest downloading Better Battery from the play store (Paid app) and view a dumpfile after 1-4 hours of your phone on idle. Once you have BBS you can determine what you want to disable or enable. If you need additional help reading the file you can head over to BBS thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1179809)

How to use Autostarts
Once you have this app, you an prevent some of the programs from auto starting even when no in use.
Select the meu option and choose group by application
You can go down the notorious apps that you find running during auto starts (Maps, Google+, Facebook, Whatsapp)
Please note, some might cause havoc when disable do this with caution.

Sale congratulations for this thread too. I don't have S3 but I suggested this thread to my friend. But I am curious about you, how will you catch up all the requests in S2 & S3:)
