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.
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.
