BlackStar ROM for Rooted Galaxy S3 i9300! [Fastest ROM][Jelly Bean Animations]

blackstar-v3-rom-rooted-galaxys3-i9300

Looking for the “fastest” ROM for your rooted Galaxy S3 i9300? Well, the BlackStar ROM (we featured couple weeks back) now is back with version THREE and with Jelly Bean animations.

Jelly Bean animations really speed up your whole UI and gets rid of all lag and regardless of benchmarks, you will find this ROM really fast.

On top of that, BlackStar ROM comes with goodies like 15 quick toggles, HX Camera mod (that gives you 30Mbits/s video recording), and a whole lot of UI customizations.

I think this is the best ROM right now, in terms of performance

redrum-rom-tmobile-att-sprint-galaxys3

I know a lot of you have been waiting eagerly for T-Mobile Galaxy S3 ROMs and well, here’s my first T-Mobile Galaxy S3 ROM I’ve tried (and not that many out there right now) and glad to say I can recommend this one over the stock ROM.

Also there’s a ported Sprint version you can try if you have a Sprint Galaxy S3.

How to Replace Broken LCD Screen on Galaxy S3!

howto-replace-galaxys3-lcd-screen-1

So, I had the most unfortunate things happen to me on the first week that I got the Galaxy S3, I dropped my Galaxy S3 straight down onto uneven concrete from my pocket face-down, which is the worst way to drop a smartphone, and I didn’t even have a case on.

This is my first time replacing a broken LCD on a smartphone but after doing it I am glad to s
