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 Dual Boot Custom ROMs on Galaxy S3!

howto-dualboot-galaxys3-15

For those of you who want to dual-boot 2 different custom ROMs on your Galaxy S3, the latest Siyah kernel supports dual-booting 2 different Jelly Bean ROMs.  ICS ROMs are NOT SUPPORTED but so long as you use Jelly Bean custom ROMs, you can dual-boot them.

Currently Siyah kernel is only available for international Galaxy S3 GT-i9300 models, please do not try this on your dual-core U.S./Canadian models!

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).

E.g. If you have 16GB internal storage on Galaxy S3, you can in
