AOKP ROM for Rooted Galaxy S3 i9300!

Don’t like TouchWiz? Perhaps you are a Google purist who only wants to use pure Google ICS stuff?

No worries, there’s a ROM for that, the AOKP ICS ROM for your rooted Galaxy S3 i9300 brings you “pure Google ICS” experience bundled with a ton of UI customizations that you won’t be able to experience on TouchWiz-based ROMs.

This is one of my favorite ROMs of all time for many of my other Android devices such as the Galaxy S2 and finally, you can experience is on your Galaxy S3.

There may be some features that don’t work on the Galaxy S3 though as not everything is compatible. For example, you will lose manual-focus on the camcorder and also burst mode on the camera. This isn’t too big of a deal for most people and you can always flash a TouchWiz-based ROM if you need that feature. (What I like to do is backup 3 or 4 of my favorite ROMs using ClockworkMod Recovery Backup/Restore feature so I can always flash back a ROM I need.)

But definitely give this ROM a twirl and let me know what you think!

      No they do not, please do not flash any i9300 ROMs on T-Mobile SGH-T999. I will post TMo ROMs pretty soon waiting for the dust to settle.

    I have flashed AOKP ROM on my T-Mobile S3… Works very well… I didn’t have to reset APN… I guess I got an updated version… the only issues I had was… couldn’t USB connect my laptop to my S3… and data kept jumping back and forth… I didn’t play around with it that long enough to really customize it… Thanks Max for all of your work… this is a cool ROM to play around with… You can just back up your ROM so you go back and forth… If you’re a noob… don’t worry… it can be done… I have flashed a lot of ROMs… It’s still early out there… pretty sure Ton of ROMs are coming…

    Dear Max, im newbie from Indonesi with my S3….i root my s3 with CWM 6.3 and SuperSu 0.96 and inject AOKP. I got a few question :

    1. I can’t install a few apk such as AVG anti virus and Black market alpha…. the issue show “insufficient memory” meanwhile i got a huge memory.

    2. I use app2sd and also link2sd but i can’t move my apk application to eksternal memory.

    3. My andro can’t connected to kies.

    Thanks for your sharing

    • Max says:

      I am not sure on AVG or Black Market, you will have to ask AOKP developers for that, app2SD app isn’t supported so it’s not going to work.

      There’s no USB Kies support on any AOKP/CM9/CM10 ROMs, you can use Kies Air instead or stick with TouchWiz based ROMs.
