For this week’s Galaxy S3 ROM of the week, check out CM11 (CyanogenMod 11) ROM, which is based on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat sources.
UPDATE: CM11 Android 4.4.1 is out now, please CLICK HERE to see it instead of this one!!!
CM11 is now available to AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, GT-i9300, and Canadian Galaxy S3 users. Although it’s still in “beta” stages, the ROM itself boots and most of the major features work out of the box such as data (3G 4G LTE), wifi, bluetooth, etc…etc…
Depending on which model of S3 you have, you could have some problems with still camera freezing or Bluetooth but otherwise, these are still pretty, solid builds considering they are just out.
With Android 4.4 KitKat, you will get lots of new features including new KitKat theme/launcher, Okay Google commands from homescreen, and slew of others.
If you don’t know what Android 4.4 KitKat is all about, check out our Top 10 Features KitKat video here:
Overall, CM11 is here to give all of you custom ROMers a taste of what KitKat is bringing. I don’t recommend these builds for daily driving (unless you are lucky enough with an S3 with everything working out of the box) but certainly you can try them easily by backing up your current ROM.
So, go ahead, it’s here, try it this wee(end) and do let me know what you think of KitKat bar!
Download Android 4.4 Gapps (DO NOT USE OLDER 4.3 Gapps you will FC!!!)
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)
Note: CM11 does not have root enabled by default but you can easily enable it for adb & apps in Developer options. If you do not know how to do this, see this video.
Download Flash Player APK (if you want flash player use with Dolphin browser)
DownloadAndroid 4.3 PhotoSphere (if you want photosphere, but may force close so make a backup of your Gallery app using Titanium Backup app before installing! )
If you want to run your apps in tablet/hybrid/custom DPI mode, see our Xposed App Settings guide.
If you want PIE Controls, see our LMT Pie Control guide.
If you want some awesome audio, check out Viper4Audio FX MOD, which you can install on this ROM to enhance your music 100%.
