Android 7.1 Nougat for Galaxy S3! [GT-i9300][CM14.1 ROM]

For those of you who want to try the latest Android 7.1 Nougat for your Galaxy S3, you are in luck if you have the international GT-i9300 model.

Based on Android 7.1 Nougat, this “beta” version of CM14.1 ROM runs pretty good with everything working out of the box including voice, data, bluetooth, WiFi, camera, etc…etc…  Now, this isn’t still recommended as daily driver as it does lag a quite a bit at times and can be very annoying.  But if your Galaxy S3 is your second phone for experimentation or you just want to try out the new features of Android Nougat such as split-window or touch-force features (long-press on Google apps), or catching cats, you can with this beta version.

CM12.1 ROM for Galaxy S3! [Android 5.1]

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.

CM12 Android 5.0.2 Lollipop ROM for Galaxy S3!

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.

LiquidSmooth ROM v3.2 for Galaxy S3!

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.
