For this week’s AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, and Canadian Galaxy S3, check out latest Android 4.3-based BeanStalk ROM.

Bringing you the latest Android 4.3 with great speed and performance, BeanStalk ROM will give you the speed you need while providing great battery life to go all day long.

Of course, BeanStalk ROM comes loaded with UI/system customization, HALO floating notifications (from ParanoidAndroid ROM), PIE Control  with dual-level shortcuts, and Xposed App Settings (to run your favorite apps in tablet/custom DPI mode).

Overall, BeanStalk ROM has been one of the best Android 4.3 custom ROMs I’ve tried as their selection of cherry-picked features are top-notch (and makes sense) while the ROM is faster than you can imagine.

    Hey Max, I tried to flash this once on my unlocked AT&T ohone, however, I continued to get an error message and it would not flash. What am I doing wrong. And yes, I have wipe dalvchik cahce, cahce, and factory clean. Nothing…

    Hey max the sprint link takes me to the T-Mobile download…

  4. Steve says:

    Got it up and running on my Verizon S3, and it is awesome!

    However seems suspiciously similar to Illusion 4.2.2

    • Jader says:

    For i9300 International..?????

  8. MJ A says:

    I got “installation aborted” on Sprint. Sticking with CM nightlies on 4.3 instead.

  9. Que1407 says:

    Hey All… for those who need it, finally got my ROM to work and get rid of STATUS 7 ERROR!! Follow link… Max has a page that explains it all and it works. Beanstalk running brilliantly.

  10. JerryP says:

    Does it have native Sprint hotspot activated?

  11. Peter says:

    I have a dummy question. Why every time when I install new ROM… my folders get f*cked. Now i Have my main direcory with /0/0/0/0/ sub folders to my original folders before rooting? I have galaxy s3 i9300

    • pete says:

      I agree, what’s up with that? Cant run restore of certain apps (Apex or Zedge) cause the directory’s are moved around. Titanium cant find the back ups either cause there in a diff folder that the New Rom has decided not use and write its own new directory???

    • James says:

      I had the same problem until I started wiping the /system partition before installing the new ROM, instead of just factory wiping. I’m assuming the new ROM sees itself as incompatible with the existing file structure somehow, and so attempts to preserve the existing data in a crude way. This time, I formated the system partition, along with every other partition CWM would allow me to wipe, and everything went on cleanly. Give that a go.

  12. OZzie says:

    everytime I try and flash it fails is it compressed I need to compress the file what am I doing wrong any advice would be greatly appreciated

    • Steve says:

      Do you have a custom recovery and are you rooted?
      Did you wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache before flashing?

  13. max ebanks says:

    max I need some help I keep getting error message when trying to upload file

  14. Steven says:

    I hope I not the only one having issues with 4.3 ROMS. This one keeps rebooting on its own and the play store continually force closes. I think I’m gonna wait for a stable 4.3 release and go back to Liquid Smooth 2.9. That’s been the best so far.

    • xunholyx says:

      I agree with the Liquid Smooth assessment. It’s pretty much flawless. The Carbon nightlies are pretty good too, but not good enough to make me switch as a daily driver.

  15. Ozzie says:

    Oh I see its take me to the noble link anyone have a fix for the link tried change to d2spr but nothing plz help would like to try this ROM

  16. bsaucier0810 says:

    this is the link for Sprint users til Max fixes this page. Happy flashing!!

  17. Slick says:

    Nothing compares to a Jellybam Rom fellows.

    • xunholyx says:

      Except the frequent random reboots kind of suck. I wish they could make their stuff more stable because they have a ton of great features.

  18. Anthony says:

    I love this ROM only complaint is that sometimes it says something about the processing system then it closes whatever I’m in? How do u fix that so it doesn’t do that anymore

  19. nigel says:

    Gapps keeps foreclosing, and downloading keeps stopping

  20. Brett says:

    I downloaded and like a lot of the customization, I am having the same issue with the Gapps where it keeps force closing and it tried downloading an updated version, but that leads to the other issue. Wifi won’t connect and my t-mobile H+ has a terrible speed. At my desk at work I usually get about 10 mbs, and im barely getting 1 mbs. Let us know if they ever update or how to talk to the Dev so I can complain to him.

  21. Frank Wiebe says:

    Installed this on my i747
    Noticed bugs right away so went back to last weeks carbon 4.3 rom

  22. jason says:

    download wont start.. says waiting for mirror than reloads the download screen with the wait timer.

  23. jason says:

    im guessing its his hosting site.. i got an web admin message saying the files are temporarily not available.

  24. jason says:

    anyone wanna send it to me? i cant get none of the downloads on Max’s site to work 🙁

  25. Fabian says:

    Please help me, ive tried so much but when I flash these roms I never have all the apps that are supposed to come with the rom, not even google pla, my files, or anything, please help me figure this out asap 🙁

    • Brett says:

      You have to download and install the GAPPs zip file. This will get you Play Gmail etc.. and then you can download Titanium Backup and re-install the apps you had before.

  26. Mike says:

    Hi I love the roms just having recent problems with flashing new ones and loosing play store and other apps. I do whipe before flashing and also back up rom with clockwork… I use Sprint from usa.. also notice with some roms change in rception…anyone else have this problem and a fix??? Thanx High on Android

  27. JRokujuushi says:

    The ROM is nice and fast, but apps keep force closing on me. Even after a fresh install, the gapps process force closes before I’ve finished the initial setup. Running on AT&T SGH-I747.

  28. BobB says:

    I flashed this a few days ago, restored all apps and started to explore the Beanstalk and was very impressed. Now after I set it up as I liked it, I received a notice that there was an update, so as usual I d/L it and prepped for the flash which went fine, BUT ,Now it is on the boot screen, I am not only frustrated by this because this happened the day before and told myself I was not going to install until I researched the update. So, does anyone have anything on this. And just to let you know,I did all the necessary wipes just as I have done 100’s of times, this is one of the only times I have got stuck on a boot screen. Thanks .

  29. jason says:

    yo i still can not download any of your files.. i tried them all..

  30. ozzie says:

    they fixed the link for the down load but it still fails to to flash any advice to what i could be doing wrong

    Hello , newbi question ….I’m confuse with all that I have a S3 nonrooted,with telus CANADA,
    I can understand that I can root my s3 and flash the rom with a more efficient one , my only concern is to do it properly ….there so many forum , thread and different software to do that ,
    is there someone that can help me to be sure that i don’t screw up 😉
    thank you very much in advance

    • Brett says:

      I have rooted my phone and flashed a few roms following the directions on this site and it works great. It is very easy and also if you end up not liking it you can un-root back to stock.

      • soso2565 says:

        thank you , after read your reply I have done the root thing …so now i have su access.
        If I want to instaead that rom ( beanstalk ) can you help me too …like reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot?????

        that will be very appreciated

        thank you

  33. drewnin says:

    how can i install the d2att version to my phone, the last time i installed a mod, it changed me from an at&t I747 to a sprint L710. the att version of this wouldn’t install , do i need to install the sprint version? I would like to go back to the I747.

    Please help me go back to the I747 AT&T version since this is what i bought and I use AT&T

    • drewnin says:

      tried the sprint version and it still won’t install
      getting status 7

      guess i’m stuck with synergy rom

      • drewnin says:

        ok after watching the “Status 7” fix video on max’s YouTube channel, and following the txt file editing and trying to install again.

        Installed perfectly, even used the AT&T version of the rom, it even shows my model number being the I747 again not the L710

  34. soso2565 says:

    I have backup my ROM with clockworkmod on my S3 i747m …not an easy process to get working but I done it.
    No I have the BEANSTALK ROM copy on my sdcard.

    my question will be ….do I have to expect some kind of trouble when i flash a rom ?
    do I will have to reinstall all my app?
    Phone / carrier setting is there anything to do ?

    thank you

  35. Devin says:

    Does anyone know why my display is HUGE? Nothing fits in the screen like it should. For example I open the phone dialer and the numbers take up most of the screen and don’t fit in their respective buttons/squares. It’s like this for email, keyboard everything! I’ve looked in all my settings to reduce screen/font/icon size and nothing works. it’s almost like it is maybe configuring the screen for a tablet or something??? I’ve had this problem since flashing from Synergy to Carbon and now to Beanstalk. I’ve wiped dav/cache/data/factory and re-flashed.. Someone PLEASE help/respond.

  36. fred says:

    keyboard force closes on my and can’t get a keyboard to work to setup???
    any ideas

  37. ulises says:

    Any way to get everything from randomly force closing? I like the look and fell of this ROM, but the force closes are kinda irritating.

  38. Aries says:

    couldn’t get root to stick with this ROM ….switched it apps and adb and flashed my supersu binary update zip 1.61 and still failed to gain root access…it flashed fine though and looked cool….any fixes for this??

  39. Mike M. says:

    Hey Max, just wondering are there any 4.3 touchwiz based roms? Fast and stable with long battery life?

  40. David says:

    rom is very fast. I have been using TouchWiz ROM for two reasons I have not been able to get cm 10 roms send big text messagesand I like some of the touch with the teachersbut I’ve decided to give this a shot like I said it’s very fast and i have been able to send big text messages. but I cannot power the phone off and turn it back on it freezes before it gets too Beanstalk boot up screen. the only way to turn it on is to reset everything and reinstall also I’m getting a lot of notifications about apps crashing like the gapps does anybody know how to resolve these issues if so please let me know .. I really want to try CM style I use my Sprint S2 real fast good battery life so I want to go back to them

  41. fred says:

    you must be getting to big for your users! Kidding, but you used to answer questions and always had a Rom, (that worked) lately not so! and you have been selling out to the commercial world, your pages are getting worse than the portal sites. Still love ya though.
    answer your users or you’ll loose’m

  42. zack says:

    Ok I’ve tried a few 4.3 ROMs and every one I download and flash comes up with the android keyboard force closes every time and I’ve tried the force stop on it as well as disabling and enabling what am I doing wrong?

  43. Sha'kel says:

    Nice Rom but I’m missing the S4 Keyboard, is there a way to add the S4 keyboard.

  44. -Alex says:

    How long will the rain stop at flashing the ‘ BeanStalk ‘ Page…
    How much data will this download?
    I waited for almost 1 hour and the rain never stopped…..


  45. Douglas says:

    I only get 3g. How do I get 4g? I got tmobile.

  46. Josh says:

    I like this ROM. I got the Google errors when I first tried to install. Wiped cache, did the factory reset, and Presto!!! Working like a dream. Make sure you install the GAPPS 4.3. Seems to be smoother than Jelly Bam which I do like.

  47. johnnyp14 says:

    I seem to have lost the built-in texting application. It’s using my Google number to text everyone now…any ideas?

    Also having the random force close issues

  48. jwoodcapital says:

    Flashed Beanstalk, I like how fast it was but it wouldn’t recognize my ext sd card. I plugged it into my laptop via the usb cord and couldn’t see the ext sd card on my laptop using windows explorer or kies. Haven’t tried titanium back-up yet but I think I need to try it next time because sgh i747 won’t sync with kies so I can’t restore my apps, text convos, my email accounts, etc…

    Does anybody have an idea how to get it to see my ext sd card? And what app/apps can I use to back-up my text messages and email accounts/account settings?

  49. Jim says:

    The blutooth initialization does not work. Also, many “stopped working” pop ups, including google play.


  50. Hector says:

    I continue to receive the following msg after attempting to download this and any ROM listed on your site:

    message: CAPTCHA is the wrong answer?

    Is the magic work no longer CAPTCHA even though is states to input it?

    Thank you:)

  51. david W says:

    Nice Rom but Random reboots ugh…had to ditch

  52. Aliyy says:

    Has anyone else had a problem wit the WiFi?

  53. Kabir says:

    Pros: battery life.
    Cons: More than ten reboots a day, error messages when switching data access from wifi to network, volume adjustment of media doesn’t always work.

    Probably the worst rom so far at least for the SPH-L710.

  54. Jordan Beltran says:

    Downloaded and installed successfully but when I try to download apps I get a error about it retrieving from server any ideas?

  55. Ah22ee says:

    Hey Max… any info on why the voicemail app not on this rom or anyway of getting on it? I like this rom but I love the voicemail app im using sprint SPH-L710. Any info is appreciated. Thanks..

  56. soso2565 says:

    Issue with sound when doing phone call.
    I can’t adjust the volume during a phone call with the volume button on the left side either normal phone call , hearbud phone call and speaker phone too …

    any ideal how to adjust the volume

  57. soso2565 says:

    great rom as far that I know

    I do have an issue with a lot of gapps…like maps , gmail , facebook and 3or 4 others

    what will be my best options to resolve that issue
    thank you

    PS i know i have the gapps 20130813.sign install with that rom and i do have erase cache and davik cache too .

  58. xunholyx says:

    Really? Fuck off!

  59. grunt0300 says:

    Is this rom “Knox” free?

    • xunholyx says:

      Knox is from Samsung. Any custom ROM you install will not have Knox.
      But if you have upgraded to stock 4.3/4.4, you should flash an older version of the official firmware(4.1) that doesn’t have Knox in it before flashing this ROM, or any ROM for that matter.
