Want to experience Android 5.1 on your Galaxy S3 today?  Even newer smartphones like Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 don’t have Android 5.1 yet but you can already get it for your Galaxy S3 through CM12.1 ROM.

LiquidSmooth ROM v3.2 for Galaxy S3!

liquidsmooth-rom-galaxys3

For this week’s Galaxy S3 ROM of the Week, check out latest LiquidSmooth ROM v3.2!

Couple weeks back we did feature this ROM but it had a broken front-facing camera, which was a deal breaker for many of you.  Well, I think Team LiquidSmooth has finally got everything right with camera working along with slew of other goodies.

For the d2lte version (for Qualcomm-based S3 like AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, and Canadian), you can use Lean Kernel, which works wonders for the ROM and camera DOES NOT work unless you flash Lean Kernel!  Lean Kernel also allows

Wicked X ROM for Sprint Galaxy S3! [4.4.2/TouchWiz]

wicked-x-rom-sprint-galaxys3

For this week’s Sprint Galaxy S3 ROM of the Week, check out Wicked X ROM by XDA user Bilgerryan.  I was actually itching to try out this ROM for weeks but hesitated as earlier versions required bootloader update.

Well, the latest version 8 doesn’t require bootloader update (as I believe it’s because KTweaker kernel is used) and have successfully installed on my Sprint S3 with a really old bootloader (I think my last update was ICS).

Anyways, Wicked X ROM is simply “wicked” if you ask me.  Out of the bat, it comes with modded S5 launcher

Now, with the latest Android 4.3 firmwares, Samsung includes new “Knox” security, which may cause pain for rooted users as it records whether you have a rooted device or not.  I highly DO NOT recommend the regular route as it’s only going to install Knox security, which you probably don’t want.
