For those of you looking to upgrade to latest Android 6.0.1, we have some great news for you, CyanogenMod Team has released official nightlies for several models of the Galaxy S3 including GT-i9300, Verizon, and there are unofficial versions (that are just as good) for the GSM models (AT&T, T-Mobile, and Canadian).
Category: AT&T Galaxy S3 ROMs
Looking for a fast and stable custom ROM based on Android 5.1.1 for your AT&T or T-Mobile Galaxy S3?
If so, check out the latest Dirty Unicorns ROM, which is an excellent custom ROM based on the latest Android 5.1.1 and brings you a high level of great customizations. Camera works great out of the box (I recommend the Google Camera on Play Store so you get Panorama, Lens Blur, and PhotoSphere modes) along with excellent navigation customization where you can customize all of your buttons (including Home, Back, and Menu buttons with short, long, and double-press) or even disable them altogether and go with soft navigation buttons, which you can also customize with your favorite shortcuts.
For those of you who have been waiting for official CM12.1 with latest Android 5.1.1, we have some good news for you as official CM12.1 ROMs are finally here!
These are based on latest CyanogenMod sources with latest Android 5.1.1, meaning you will get all of the new Android 5.1.1 features including soft buttons with hardware keys disabled.
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.
The CM12.1 ROM builds are available for all AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Canadian, and GT-i9300 Galaxy S3 models. Although these are unofficial builds compiled from CyanogenMod sources, they are actually pretty stable, I haven’t found a single bug yet so far.
For those of you who have been waiting for a Android 5.0.2 Lollipop ROM, there’s been many beta versions in the last few months.
If you own the GT-i9300 model, you are in luck as the Lollipop ROM runs near flawless with everything working out of the box. As for AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or Verizon S3 users, you will also get pretty stable build except the camera/camcorder is not working. (You can get still photos working sorta with Open Camera app.) If this is a concern to you, you may want to wait out few more weeks for camera fix.

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.
