    Wicked Rom Jellybean for sgs3 t999 is the best rom i ever flashed period. I have flashed at least 20 Roms before (SGS3 and SG-note) and this is the one that impressed me the most, best of both worlds you get Touch wiz and the best features from the Nexus 4 Rom 4.2. Best thing is you can customize this Rom prior to installation which is awesome! Thanks MAX

    Hello, Thank you Max for all your hard work, and all those helping out!!

    I am about to load the wicked rom v10 onto my replacement device (replacing my sgs3 t999 running wicked v6). However, the “new” sgs3 says it is model SPH-L170. Windows also reads the device as this too. Does this mean that I should not load roms meant for T999 devices, namely the wicked roms? I am a t-mo user, so it appears my replacement device was from a different carrier, but is now for t-mo. Could someone please advise. I have about 10 days to return damaged device. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Mahalo!

      Nevermind guys…sorry for the bad question. Finally realized the insurance company (Asurion) sent me the wrong device. Fortunately, the ROM I loaded (Synergy) was compatible with TMO & Sprint models, and I was able to unroot. Gonna send device back. Proper device should arrive next Tuesday.

    hi guys
    anyone of you knows if the sgh-i747 roms are compatible with sgh-i747m?

    First of all I wanted to say GREAT WORK MAX!
    now, I have a small request for you. You make so many ROM reviews and I thought that maybe You’d make an update review of OMEGA ROM for 4.1.2 (now it’s version 43.4)
    Thx in advance and Keep on doing what you’re doing

    When was the last time you updated this page? Just curious how update your favorite/best ROM’s are. Btw, I really enjoy & appreciate your site. I have been having a blast for the last week or so trying out all these different ROM’s & more. Still trying to figure out which one I’m more comfortable with since I’m new to owning an S3. Thanks again Max.

    Hey Max, I am having troubles installing roms…. Currently I am using the pandus rom, but when I tried installing the foxhound rom it says ‘installation aborted’ in clockworkmod recovery…….. Then I tried installing the jellybam rom, but came across the same problem………
    Can u please let me know what might be the cause for this…….

  10. odog says:

    yo Max…man respond to your dayum messages! sometimes we need help and the Vid’s aren’t always enough. I’ve tried about 7 different roms….worse rom I’ve played with is Hyperdrive. I liked it because of all the features and then it started freezing up. I think maybe it’s offering too much junk. I reinstalled without HTC Sense launcher and only used Xperia and Touchwiz and it kept freezing. to the point that after a reboot it froze on lockscreen. had to uninstall at work, lucky I had Wicked Sensations Rom as backup.

    Where is Darth Stalker Rom? I want to try it but cannot find a working link. the Link on XDA isn’t working for me.
    So as of right now best Rom I;ve seen is Synergy and Wicked JellyBean. & Wicked Sensations.

    Hi Max,
    I have an International S3, namely the GT-I9305, and I think I have only seen the GT-I9305 mentioned once on this site.
    Is this because you believe any ROM or root method for GT-I9300 will work on the GT-I9305 because they are so similar, or is it because the GT-I9305 is too small in quantity in the US to warrant your attention?

    i need roms sgh i747m:(

  13. PJ Arts says:

    I have tried all the Verizon ROMs that you list on my SCH-i535. CleanROM 7 has given me better processor performance and battery life than any of them; and, is based on the latest OTA release of Jelly Bean.
