Well, it’s been almost two weeks since Galaxy S3 officially launched and I think it’s a good time to start flashing custom ROMs as there’s been lots of development.
I’ve been trying a bunch of ROMs and one of the best ROMs I can recommend to you is the Omega ROM. Omega ROM for rooted Galaxy S3 i9300 comes very stock-like but with many cool things like HX Camera mod, 6×5 app drawer, extended power menu, faster GPS lock, and lots more.
UPDATE: A lot of people have been flashing this ROM on U.S. versions of Galaxy S3, PLEASE DO NOT FLASH IF YOU DON’T HAVE A i9300 International version of Galaxy S3!
This is a very good ROM that I highly recommend if you are just starting out with custom ROMs on the Galaxy S3 and especially for noobs. In the near future there should be a ton of more custom ROMs like AOKP, CyanogenMod9, and more but for right now, I think Omega ROM is the best stock-like ROM while giving you many software improvements over Samsung’s stock ROM.
My suggestion to you is to give this Omega ROM a try and I think you will like it. It should also give you much better performance and battery life over stock ROM so you have nothing to lose.
Install it, run it for a few days and let me know how it goes for you! (This is what I am running after flashing about 5-6 different ROMs this week.)
Very stock like but with lots of cool enhancements like 6×5 app drawer, higher-bitrate camcorder, better battery life and performance.
This has the Camera Mod, nearly twice the bitrate for video recording.
Rating 4.95 out of 5.
