Tired of TouchWiz? Perhaps you want a full Galaxy Nexus/Google experience on your super-fast Qualcomm S4 Galaxy S3?

Well, if you have an AT&T or T-Mobile Galaxy S3 (SGH-I747 or SGH-T999), you can now install AOKP Task & KToonsez ROM. This gives you full features of AOKP, which I have used for many other Android devices.

The coolest part about AOKP ROMs is that you get all the cool features of CM9 ROMs plus UI customizations and more.

UPDATE: This ROM does have bugs, video recording sometimes can force close and become very jittery and also Samsung keyboard may stop working (try Go Keyboard app off Play Store) but still is really fast.  Will have an update when everything is working flawless.

You can watch the video (or download for viewing later) above to check out all the features.

For those of you with AT&T Galaxy S3, you might want to refer to AT&T Galaxy S3 APN/PTA settings also to get your 4G LTE data/MMS working fully.

  1. Adrian says:

    Good ROM, but can we get an overclock ROM for T999 soon?

  2. Melgar says:

    Hey Max will this AOKP Rom work on Canadian Telus SGH-I747M,
    Thanks in advance.

  3. Eric G says:

    Awesome, thanks Max!

    Will this work on a Canadian Rogers SGH-I747M?

  4. Ken says:

    Hey Max,
    Is it safe to move my recovery files I made with CWR to the SD card? What about my backup from Titanium backup? Will my sd card be erased when I wipe my phone?

    • Max says:

      Yes you can move all backups to your hard disk, no your sd card doesn’t get erased tho when you wipe ur phone.

  5. Max E. says:

    Installed just fine on my Videotron SGH-T999V!
    So far I’m liking it but do you know if there are any audio enhancement mods like “beats” that I can use with it?

  6. JP says:

    How do you set it up to T-mobile

  7. Melgar says:

    Hey Max, rooted and install AOKP Rom I’m loving every thing, you’re the best your knowledge is superb.
    However i have encountered one issue since rooting i cannot move any apps to my external SD card.I have used APP 2 SD Pro, root & non root .MSG says” The device does not have a real primary external storage,or the primary external storage is emulated.Also “Moving apps to SD may not be supported by this device. There is a 34 GB card installed & formatted.Keep up the good work dude.

    Sent From Telus SGH-I747
    4.0.4 AOKP

  8. Melgar says:

    Yo Max, i can wait for a fix no prob,previous Rom was stock sucks, AOKP still better.I know the prob accursed during rooting perhaps a different root program will solve the issue.I’m really liking this Rom.

  9. Fa7592 says:

    Just curious, when was this ROM made available for the AT&T version? And how long do you think it’ll be before everything is working flawlessly?

  10. Prodigy says:

    Ok installed rom, loved it, did a few reboots everything was fine, but on my last start I changed themes with rom control and added a swapper, then I rebooted and it seems to be hard bricked!? I know Im taking a risk with any rom, but i would like a little insight on what might have gone wrong and is there a fix yet,,, like most people Odin still sees my phone while in QHSUSB_DLOAD mode but no read or writing hence i can even turn my phone on to get to recovery or download mode. Any help would be nice and no negative stuff because thats useless, I would also like to stay away from turning this phone in as this would be my third time,,,, seems this phone is pretty easy to brick.

    • Max says:

      Hmmm. which Galaxy S3 do you have? If you can see QHSUSB_DLOAD there may be a way to restore (in the near future), as I just unbricked my Evo 4G LTE in that mode. But not as of yet.

      • Prodigy says:

        I747 AT&T,,,, all in all it seems like there should be an easy fix for this since its becoming common with this phone, and with all the tools out there.. im not saying I know how but someone should have a good idea on stuff like this. by the way I have the qualcomm drivers installed – and it now shows connected “Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 (COM7) and it shows in odin still but I can not flash

        • Max says:

          No can’t flash in that mode, you have to have Samsung USB CDC Composite device in ODIN mode. Does it turn on at all? Can you get into ODIN mode? Otherwise the best fix would be your AT&T store. They should replace even without insurance.

          • Prodigy says:

            I still have insurance lol but thats the thing I hate going in for a third time, it sounds bad but I’ve never had this kind of trouble, I loved my galaxy s2 i mean i got a few boot loops but thats an easy fix. But no i cant turn on, without the battery hooked up to the pc the red led comes on and you hear it connect with the pc and same with batter minus red led.

            • Prodigy says:

              !UPDATE! if this helps I got the phone noticed in QPST CONFIG and now I can do software download mod or w/e,, so any guidance from here would be great,,,it also say I could do a flash erase but that seems risky

              • Prodigy says:

                I meant download mode

                • Max says:

                  If you flashed a i9300 ROM on your U.S. variant, that’s going to put you in brick mode, which should be recoverable in the future but not at this point. My suggestion is to get a new phone under warranty/insurance. Or if you want, tell them u lost the phone and pay the deductible. There should be a way to fix easily in the future, which should give you another extra phone. But there is no way to unbrick that mode at this point.

                  • Prodigy says:

                    ok thanks, and it was this rom that I was using, like I said i loved it and it works great, just dont know what went wrong but if you hear anything or can get the files let me know.

                • Jeffrey says:

                  Hi Prodigy, i had twice hardware brick and wont turn on whatsoever and both were returned to store for exchange, it was such a horrible experience.. how did you get it back to download mode after hardware brick?.. because if i cant turn it on at all, how do i get in there..?. if i can get in there, i cna certainly flush out and put stock rom back to manufacture state.. but i cant turn on. any advise will help

      • Jeff says:

        Max,
        i have SGH-i747, hard brick twice, wont turn on, you tried so many differnt ROMs on the S3, ever had problem with hard brick at all? i am so afraid to do custom rom now.before, S2, faciinate, all software brick that are recoverable via factory firm ware via Odin.. but not this one.. cnat turn on, whatever i do, just wont turn on at all, i hard bricked twice,, cant go exchange for the 3rd time, so any suggestions?

        • Max says:

          No problems here but make sure you flash only T-mo/AT&T GS3 ROMs on i747, if you flashed i9300 ROM, it will brick.

  11. edward says:

    Hey Max hows the battery life with this rom, any major bugs I should worry about?

    • Max says:

      battery life is good but this is still “beta” rom with buggy camcorder. But for what it’s worth it’s an AWESOME ROM, can believe task650 pulled this off in such short amount of time. AND 4G LTE works.

  12. mangobob says:

    I’m on USA Tmobile SGH-T999 S3 Pepple Blue baby!
    I suppose it might be because this ROM was really meant for ATT? But after flashing, both Mac and Windows 7 did not recognize my phone, I could do no file transfers via USB. Neither setting the USB option to MPT or Camera device worked. In phone’s about page, the device showed up as SGH-I747, not SGH-T999 anymore. Otherwise loved feeling the quickness and snappiness of AOKP on ICS on the S3 (as opposed to the more sluggish and bloated TouchWiz). Maybe there are no problems on the ATT S3. Luckily I had a Nandroid backup to flash back to. Now back to stock and everything back to normal. Waiting for the next one for TMobile Galaxy S3.

    • mangobob says:

      Also maybe just me, but I might be having problems with charging… on Max OSX Lion, using all OEM cables. It seems to be charging rather slow and getting hot, I’m posting because it’s happened twice, the first time was overnight and when I woke, the phone was like a hot potato and still not fully charged.

  13. Danny says:

    Maybe this can be a feature in the next rom, but i really liked the svoice. and the camera. This doesn’t have svoice and the camera is square. I love AOKP, but there were some features before that I liked. Is there a way for you to find a rom with all of this, plus the new Jelly Bean Google command thing? Supposed to be tons better than svoice. Anyway, thanks. Also, is there a certain amount of ROMS you try to get out pre week for each phone?

    • Max says:

      I pick one rom per week, try to do the “best rom of the week”. Sometimes it’s a hit and miss but sometimes it’s very good. But I try many roms of course beforehand. This one is actually very good considering it just came out, I think once camcorder works better and bugs sorted out it’s gonna be better than most touchwiz-based roms.

  14. Patrick says:

    i was succesful in installing it but when i connect my phone to the computer, it doesnt seem to read it so i cant open my phone’s files via the computer. some help please

  15. Antonio says:

    need help, ive been looking at aokp animation for a while now.
    it wont boot

    • Max says:

      Try factory reset in CWM. Make sure you made a back up of your ROM tho!

      • Antonio says:

        That going problem, it won’t go into CWM

        • Max says:

          reflash it!

          • Kilo Jonez says:

            Having the same problem. The AOKP boot loop is rather annoying, but mine still boots into CWM. I restored and reinstalled the rom 4 times all with the same result.

            No clue what’s going on. Had something very similar happen with my old S2 and a Team KANG AOKP rom build.

            Any help would be greatly appreciated.

            • Kilo Jonez says:

              Figured it out.

              -Boot into CWM
              -Erase User Data / Factory Restore
              -Reinstall ROM

              Works

              • Kilo Jonez says:

                Max,

                I’ve followed these instructions to the letter and have completely lost my LTE connection. I’ve followed your instructions on APN settings with no luck.

                I’ve factory restored and reflashed to the stock ROM and I’m still stuck on EDGE. No HSPA/+ or LTE. I’ve even installed more and more custom roms to see if they’d fix the issue, but they haven’t.

                THIS AOKP ROM BROKE MY LTE – NEED HELP!

  16. til-bar says:

    I have the latest build on my s3, the July 15 build, loving it.

    But the XDA thread for this ROM has been deleted, are you aware of where it went? Why?

  17. Corncob-pineapple3 says:

    Same issue as etb87…Tmobile galaxy S3 with AOKP as well from xda.
    Disable lock screen vibration? Disable menu and back button lights?
    Any ideas? Or is this part of the bugs in this ROM?

  18. WINGON says:

    EMERGENCY!! I installed your rom..then I wanted to have my original one back, but I couldn’t install any rom. I mean any!! After installing other roms, the system couldn’t be rebooted. How to solve this big problem?!!

  19. flex says:

    I installed this rom on my canadian rogers galaxy s3 i747 and i cant seem to get the 4g/LTE to work.
    please help!!

    • Max says:

      This ROM doesn’t have 4G LTE support. Sorry if I forgot to mention that.

      • WINGON says:

        yes it works quiet well. I just wonder if it was caused by the kernel. I have another problem is that I can’t browse the files when connecting it to the computer via usb.

  20. etb87 says:

    Back light hardware key disable is possible? Lock screen vibration disable? How do I do it?

  21. Brian says:

    Hi, I flashed this one (I’m on a T999, was running FreeGS3 R2) however after I did a titanium restore, rebooted, many force close (FC’s) appeared. is this because of differences between AOKP and FreeGS ?

    what are the benefits of using this ROM? I can fix all the FC’s mainly by installing the apps one by one, and restoring them from titanium one by one, but is it worth it? I didnt see anywhere a post about how this ROM is better than any other, although it’s strange that this rom is less than 200Mb while the others are over 600Mb…..

  22. Orlando Perez Sr says:

    Is this ROM Compatible with the T-Mobile Version of the SGS3?
    I have read some comments and posts about this ROM and they all mention the AT&T Version without any mention of the T-Mobile Version.
    I know there might be some bugs, I just want to make sure that I have at least a useful phone if I flash this ROM.

    Thanks

  23. TK says:

    Hey bros, how can I change the LED notif settings with this ROM?
    I go to SG3 settings but it is blacked out, and now my LED is just constant lit on when I have notifs killing my battery; any ideas?

  24. kiss says:

    HI ,MAX !I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM ,MY GALAXY S3 CANNOT CONNECT TO PC! AND YOUR NEW VERSION CM9 (POSED BY 7-23) CANNOT INSTALL? HELP!!!help!!

  25. Hey Max, does this ROM have the fast burst mode camera that comes with the stock GS3 rom? I am not sure if that’s a feature added by Samsung or if it’s native to ICS.

    LOL @ the shitty t-mobile service. man I regret switching to them. I get edge more often than not. When I was at LAX I couldn’t even get suitable data service to go to Facebook and check in :D

    • Max says:

      No burst mode but you can use an app from Play Store to get it back (it’s just a software hack).

      Try the CM9, much better.

  26. Sam says:

    I dont have the camera app how do i get it?

  27. yang yu says:

    hi max can this rom work with simple mobile 3G or 4G sim card on at&t 747?? if not do you think this issue will be solved in the future???

  28. Arturo Jr says:

    Hey Max i forgot to back up before i installed this rom. i was using stock. is there any way to get stock back?

  29. Arturo Jr says:

    I couldn’t un root I didn’t download gapps and can’t becaise it doesn’t recognize my phone,and can’t get the play store to get triangles away app to change the Odin binary. But I just put wicked Rom on my sd through my laptop. And. Factory reset and flashed wicked. Works fine now and looks like stock. THANKS!! Max

  30. yang yu says:

    when i try to save a new apn ..it shows “mcc field must be 3 digits” after i did this rom

  31. Loko says:

    The cámara crashes in my galaxy s3 sgh t999 an battery drain

  32. David says:

    i se your vids everywhere and i saw one rom for the i9300 paranoid android that i thoght was cool. i am just wondering if there is a rom like that where u can display in tablet mode on the tmobile version of the gs3 (t999) or maybe a aosp jelly bean for the t999. if you could get bac to me thatd be great. i been thinking of selling this to get the i9300 just for roms and the quad core. but i have also been told that it will not run tmobiles hspa+ network and then i also heard it was pentaband and will run tmobiles 4g so idk lmao. but like i said if there is a rom for the t999 (tmobile) that can support the tablet/hybrid display or even the aosp jelly bean that would be great. Thanks Daivd

  33. yang yu says:

    camera is sometimes not working and the phone is sometimes restart by itself my phone is 747 att

  34. Melgar says:

    Hey Max just saw an up date on Android form for AOKP its called Parandroid for at&t S3 ,its in beta form and is also has some jellybean component to it have you tried it out.

  35. Melgar says:

    Has any one figured out how to get your computer to pick up the phone on AOKP Rom yet.Still cannot connect to PC other than that this Rom is sweet.
    And thanks Max for all your efforts and dedication to helping us out.

  36. Melgar says:

    Hey Max letting you know that flashing the AOKP updated solved the issue of not connecting to my pc,. Thanks. Again.

  37. Sunn says:

    Max,

    I tried installing this ROM on a new AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3..

    -Was I suppose to do a wipe/factory reset first?
    -Am I suppose to install GAPPs too?

    I tried installing the ROM 1st and now when I reboot it just hangs on the start up with the pink Unicorn..
    -Is it suppose to do that? and how long does it take?

  38. Ryan says:

    SORRY FOR THE CAP’S , BUT THIS THREAD IS SO ANNOYING! MAX IS AMAZING AND I AM A HUGE FAN. TODAY I HAVE LEARNED THAT ALSO ANOTHER AMAZING QUALITY THAT MAX HAS IS HIS ABILITY TO MAKE PEOPLE NOT FEEL DUMB (FOR OPENING THEIR EYES AND READING AND RESEARCHING!!!) ALL THE ANSWERS THAT MAX HAS ANSWERED ARE EASILY FOUND IN PLACES LIKE XDA, ANDROIDAUTHORITY, GOOGLE FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! READ PEOPLE READ! BEFORE ASKING THESE CRAZY QUESTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN FOUND BY OTHERS ALREADY!

    MAX YOU ROCK AND i WILL CONTINUE TO ALWAYS FOLLOW YOUR WORK! IT’S AMAZING!

    One of my lady friends hard bricked her AT&T Samsung Galaxy S3 i747 and I was able to fix it. HOWEVER IF IT DOES NOT WORK, FOR THE LAST TIME TAKE IT INTO AT7T AND HAVE THEM GIVE YOU A NEW ONE! SIMPLE IS SIMPLE.

    LET MAX DO BETTER THINGS THAN FIELDING YOUR RIDICULOUS QUESTIONS.

  39. Nick says:

    Do you have to wipe if coming from your Highonandroid v0.3? Also if I was to wipe, would it delete my apps, things on internal sd? (sorry for the question i just wanted to be shure)

  40. Aedeb says:

  41. Firat says:

    Hi, Max

    How are you? Do you know how to unlocked samsung I 747 USA version ?

    Thanks

  42. Eduardo Hernandez says:

    I love this rom. Especially with the AOKP Cobalt theme. Rocks! My question is when I was running the 9-8-2012 version of this rom, I had the ability to set up my home button to long press and voice search would appear. I updated to 9-19-2012, and that feature seemed to be removed. Unless I’m not looking for properly. Any suggestions? Thanks

  43. FIRAT says:

    Hi, Max

    I made root my att s3 and which one use it busy box or titan backup?

    I wanna change rom but I don’t know which one stable, solid, fast and useful?

    Thanks

  44. Kia says:

    Hi Max,

    I need help with one particular problem, every time I put a custom Rom on my At&T Galaxy S3 the camera will not work. Anyway I tried this Rom and I loved it, I see my pics in gallery and everything but when I go to the camera it says: CAN’T CONNECT TO CAMERA. Is there anyway to resolve this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, I don’t know if the info below would help but I just listed it anyway. I’m a newbie.

    Galaxy S3 SGHI747
    Android 4.04
    Kernel: 3.0.8 cyanogenmod-g6219670
    ROM version: AOKP d2att 7.12.2012

  45. etb87 says:

    He is not a joke, I hope no one reads your comment and takes you seriously. He DOES credit XDA! He does give support. Just watch his last video. He has people texting his personal phone for support in the video! I have flashed every ROM on here for the tmo galaxy S2 and galaxy S3 and no issues. I check both zedomax and XDA, they supplement eachother nicely.
