Want a solid and stable Android 5.1.1 custom ROM that’s super fast? Check out the latest AICP ROM for Galaxy S3, available for Sprint SPH-L710, Verizon SCH-i535, and GT-i9300.
Based on latest and great Android 5.1.1, AICP ROM brings you speed and performance from Google’s latest improvements to both system speed and battery life. This ROM is built on CM12.1 which means you will get all of the standard features of CM12.1 plus much more. Also this ROM is “stable” for Sprint and Verizon S3, meaning it’s highly recommended as daily driver.
For customization, AICP offers more than a dozen customization options including customization for your status bar, head-up notifications, display, system animations, recents panel, and more. For navigation, you will be able to fully customize your hardware navigation buttons or even enable soft keys while disabling the hardware keys, just like a OnePlus One. Other navigation features include SlimPIE Controls, Gesture Anywhere, App Circle Bar, and App Sidebar. If you wanted to have all-out navigation shortcuts, this ROM is going to give you all that on top of Android 5.1.1.
Overall, this is a ROM I also run on my Note 4, which runs near flawless for all aspects so definitely check it out for this week’s ROM of the week and don’t forget to donate to the developers of this ROM!
