Galaxy S3 ROMs
Want a solid and stable Android 5.1.1 custom ROM that’s super fast? Check out the latest AICP ROM for Galaxy S3, available for Sprint SPH-L710, Verizon SCH-i535, and GT-i9300.
Based on latest and great Android 5.1.1, AICP ROM brings you speed and performance from Google’s latest improvements to both system speed and battery life. This ROM is built on CM12.1 which means you will get all of the standard features of CM12.1 plus much more. Also this ROM is “stable” for Sprint and Verizon S3, meaning it’s highly recommended as daily driver.
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.
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 those of you with a Galaxy S3 GT-i9300, you are in luck as S5 Sensations ROM by XDA user Sunajkram23 brings you a real “S5 port” to your Galaxy S3.
Inside S5 Sensations, you will find goodies like native call recording, modded S5 launcher with theme support, Ultra Power Saving Mode (Yes get 10 days of battery life!), S5 lockscreen effects, quad multi-window, and much more.

For those of you looking to convert your Galaxy S3 into OnePlus One, we’ve got a surprise for you (if you haven’t heard yet). I know many of you are actually trying to buy a OnePlus One or perhaps want to check it out.
For this week’s Galaxy S3 ROM of the Week, check out latest version of Carbon ROM!
Based on latest Android 4.4.4, Carbon ROM brings you nice tweaked performance on top of latest Android 4.4.4 along with slew of customization so you can get your S3 running “just right”.
For this week’s ROM of the Week, check out latest LiquidSmooth ROM.
Based on Android 4.4.4 KitKat, LiquidSmooth ROM brings you the best and great Android along with root, customization, and many countless features.
I have been following LiquidSmooth ROM for awhile now (few years) and it used to be one of my favorite custom ROMs. Well, they stopped developing for a period of time but they are back better than ever, with killer features like custom kernel built-in the ROM so you can easily overclock to 1.836Ghz to play your graphic-intensive games.
