This Is A Port Rom. Official Rom Made By PhilWeser
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2180665[/U]








WHAT IS PLASMA ROM
Well let’s start with what it is not. It’s not as dark as AOSP, it’s not as bright as touchwiz. It’s not modified in ways that will make your phone less stable than a stock experience. It doesn’t have all the bloat removed, but it has enough removed that it boots very quickly. It’s not your mama’s ROM, but it is stable enough to be. I only want to remove from touchwiz, what can be made better by the All Star team of developers and modders we have for this phone. If you like having to install 10-20 zips after you flash your ROM, this isn’t for you. You’ll find the good stuff is baked in. But make no mistake, we will be adding more with every release. Your suggestions are more than welcome. Updates will be coming on a weekly, to a Google just updated a lot of apps basis. I’m no Scott, or Beans, or Esch, or Hero, and don’t even pretend to be, but I do have a great eye for what works and what will get the best out of your phone. It’s a daily driver, you are going to flash something, might as well give this a go. I think the vast majority will like it. It’s not like anything else out there in my opinion. Enjoy and profit my friends.

This ROM is meant to use a dark background. If you leave the default blue background it will be tough to read. I recommend ditalix or Gyrospace or Deep Galaxies. Or you could just
use a straight black background you would be essentially inverted.
Thanks to dsixda’s kitchen


And thanks to all the crackheads, the critics, and cynics, and all my heroes in the methadone clinics!
If I missed you with the love, just shoot me a PM and I will get you up pronto.

BUGS
SLOW INITIAL BOOT, make take up to 2 minutes. Don't panic and don't pull battery. Walk away from the phone and let it finish booting.


Viper FX/HiFi needs the old drivers cleaned out. Just flash this zip.

The Google Now included is ooooold, just use this oneinstead if you need the latest features.

The Samsung Multi Window app doesn't have a Verizon variant driver yet. Just use Galaxy S3 > GT-I9305 until they do. I haven't felt any side effects yet.

I highly recommend reading my post below as well for customization (base audio effect adjustments for noobs) and other stuff you may want.

DOWNLOAD

COMPLETE PERFORMANCE CUSTOMIZATION

DONT UPDATE OTA FROM GOO MANAGER!!!!!!!!!

Don’t forget to hit thanks! ;>’)

And as always I'm not responsible for anything that happens with or without this ROM.

I will try to add other mods that work and changelog here

TO GET LEFT\RIGHT CLOCK
Install KindaCrap mods. Choose I535VRBLK3. DISABLE POLICY MODS AND FRAMEWORK MODS. Choose circle battery, or the one of your choice, tell it right or left. Change all of the backgrounds to black and all of the objects to while or another color. And set the expanded status bar notification panel to 75%. If you want the transparent pulldown.

TO ENABLE BLOCKING MODE
Just click lidroid settings in the app drawer. Check the box that says blocking mode, turn it on in the status bar. Profit.

XPOSED TWEAKBOX
To enable the Framework mods, hit Xposed Installer in the app drawer, then hit install, then hit soft reboot. After reboot hit the modifications tab, then hit soft reboot again. Then click on the app called Tweakbox, every option in there seems to worK except the CRT stuff and honestly I personally wouldn't touch the stuff that says experimental. If you want to try it, be sure to make a backup of your ROM first.

Here is an Xposed battery icon changer. Thanks Romcrazguy

Not telling you what kernel to like or anything, but the brand spanking new KTkernel is absolutely smoking on this release.

GALAXY S4 WALLPAPER

GALAXY S4 SVOICE

Add PIE.

Best sound mod music app TT POD. To remove the Japanese symbols on it just download a new American Skin, the Japanese stuff will go away

Alternate messaging apps
Revert to stock MMS with this zip.
Go to Gnote2 messaging with this zip. Thanks dead-angel

BEST GO LOCKER FREE THEMES
Under-sea Theme
Lock FX White
AOSP
Sense
Dark
Fourkey Theme
Ray

Morphology confirmed working with this release.

WIFI tethering thanks TrevE

Debloat\Rebloat tool from upndwn4par

NOS Injection seems to be working fine on this. I didn't bake it in, but if some of you want to give it a go, It installs and works fine for me.

GPS NOS INJECTION thanks ExitOnly

If your phone is branded AT&T it will only work if the phone is UNLOCKED.

If your phone is the international version (not branded) it should work fine.

Good luck with it.
I thought flashing ROMs between the US S3 variants and the International variant would cause a brick?

Flashing a rom meant for an international S3 (I9300) on a U.S. variant S3 (Tmobile, Sprint, Verizon, AT&T) would brick the device. Wouldn't it be the same the other way around?

Right. Hence we "Port a Rom" from said device to another device. VZW Roms will not work on TMo Roms. That's a "Brick" waiting to happen.

You are right, however if you read the first post (OP) he clearly states that this rom is
PORTED to work with Tmobile.

If this rom was not ported you would be 100% right and it would most likely brick the phone. :)

In other words, if any of the other roms in these tmobile threads here works with your phone, this will work too.
(example: Darthstalker, Wicked, Infamous roms and others here)

Good Luck!

There's some confusion here.

The reasoning for my post on bricking:

You said (as I quoted above):

" If your phone is the international version (not branded) it should work fine."

If his phone is the international version, then this ROM would indeed brick his phone. Because the OG ROM is for Verizon (U.S. Variant) and its been ported for another U.S. variant of the S3.

Not to mention that it is incorrect that flashing another US variant ROM will brick. Things might not work right but you'll only soft brick at worst and have to ODIN unless you flash a different RADIO - then you're screwed.

Seems to be a confusion here. First off I have a friend that have an att s3 he will test for me. Also it shouldn't brick your phone by flashing my port to an s3. I have flash several ROMs out of box to my T-Mobile s3 and it works. Now the US variant the d2 s3 its lot easier to port because is pretty much the same hardware. International s3 isn't. Will be home in a couple of hours and check in the upload. And this port won't brick your T-Mobile phone. I had flash it several time and work on it to get it stable.

False partition layouts on the US galaxy S3 are all the same. You can't brick your phone by flashing other carrier roms. Of course it won't flash without a simple edit to the updater script

The guy who was asking this questions had an international 9300 S3 and wanted to know if he could flash this rom.
