How to Install Galaxy S4 Camera on Galaxy S3!

For those of you who want to take a peek at the future, you can now install Galaxy S4 camera on your Galaxy S3 GT-i9300!

This is a “ported” version from Galaxy S4 leaked firmware. Because it’s a ported version not everything is working but you can install it to try some new features like Eraser Photo, Sound and Shot, Night, and some of the working features. 360 Photo Sphere mode is included which is not working but this is good news since with Android 4.2.2 update there should be Photo Sphere coming to S3 also soon.

How to Install ClockworkMod(CWM) Recovery on Galaxy S3!

Here’s how to install ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery on any Galaxy S3 including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and GT-i9300. (Also use AT&T if you have Canadian GS3.)

I know some of you on Canadian users were having trouble using ROM Manager to install CWM Recovery to install CM10 ROM so this will allow you to manually install the official ClockworkMod Recovery manually via ODIN.

This is a hack that that allows you to swap internal storage with your external SD card so you can increase your app data storage.

All credits go to original i9300 App2ExtSD Hack by mattiadj. I simply hacked it to work with U.S. versions and also I’ve added code so it will disable this feature when you don’t have a microSD card inserted (app storage will default to internal when no microSD card is inserted).
