For those of you who have been waiting for a stable KitKat ROM, you long wait may just be over as CM11 ROM now has everything working out of the box for ALL Galaxy S3s including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Canadian, Cricket, US Cellular, MetroPCS, GT-i9300, and GT-i9305.  The latest CM11 ROM also includes the latest Android 4.4.1, meaning you will be right up to date with bleeding-edge of Android.

Unlike earlier versions of CM11 where we saw some bugs with camcorder/bluetooth and lack of features, the latest CM11 has added couple new UI customization/system shortcuts for you to enjoy and I think that makes it way more usable than stock Android KitKat (like one found on Nexus 5).

You will be able to customize your shortcuts on your lockscreen, change the hardware buttons (set them to your own shortcuts), change battery icon, customize quick toggles/tiles, and some more.

Overall, CM11 is looking really good “right now” so if you are looking for a solid, stable Android 4.4.1 KitKat ROM, check it out this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot.   (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)

Note: CM11 does not have root enabled by default but you can easily enable it for adb & apps in Developer options.  If you do not know how to do this, see this video.

    Can I do a fresh install of this after a 4.3 wanamlite or do I need to install cm11, then apply this as an update type of thing?

  2. DynamyT says:


    Can we always use T-Mobile rom for SGH-T999V canadian videotron S3 ?
    Is there any issues with the camera or something else ?

    I’m looking for a rooted rom because of knox on my stock 4.3

    Thank you

  3. Alex Ferguson says:

    Installed this via cm update found it very buggy as the version offered was a nightly. Issues I came across was sms not sending and the dialer wasn’t working even after I reinstalled gapps 4.4.1.

    Will keep an eye on it but the 10.2 is stable

  4. Romz says:

    i installed stock 4.3 stock rom with root for AT&T and had to update my modem to mj2.

    will this affect me when i install this rom ?

  5. Ryan H says:

    Is a fresh install different from using the official CM Update? Max says it’s more stable, but your experience, Alex, was the opposite. Is it worth doing, or just dealing with the bugs on CM 11?

  6. drewnin says:


    This is the first mod in a long time I have been able to install without a single problem!
    I didn’t even need to edit the asserts to force load. A few mods ago, a mod changed my phone from being a SGH-I727 (AT&T) to a SGH-L710 (Sprint). It was stable but was worried about the model change. The last mod did change me back to AT&T SGH-I727 but was very unstable force closing apps all the time, and rebooting a few times each day on its own.. So far it seams very stable.

    Its so refreshing to have a stable phone again. I promise I will never install another rom ever again!

    Once again… THANK YOU VERY MUCH

    Galaxy S3 SGH-I727 AT&T

  7. Damon says:

    I installed this on my sgh-i747m and it worked well except when I went to restore my apps it said it could not read or find my ext sdcard. Is there a way to get around this?

    • zionex z81 says:

      How u did it? ?? Twrp v2.6.3.0 is the one I’m with. .. isn’t installing at all. .. but can’t find how to update it..

      • Kevin says:

        You have to use TWRP or higher. I had the same problem and i tried to update my twrp in goomanager and ROMmanager but the highest it went to was which still wont work so i flashed the new Philz Touch 6 CWM v6.0.4.5 using ODIN and the flash to KitKat worked fine. if you need help let me know i can send you the link or put it into a drop box for you.

        • soso2565 says:

          Hello , just wondering if you can provide link for philz touch please it will be really appreciated thank you have a great day

          • Kevin H says:

            I’ll put philz touch into a drop box link today after work for everyone who’s still having issues with flashing. Happy holidays everyone.

            • Stephan says:

              Thank I did find it…but I can’t find the link again… 🙁

              It work with that phone touch version but I had to do it few time, and do the room first reboot and gaps after… Work fine so far.. Thank you

              • Kevin H says:

                OK I’ll post the link soon im about to head home. Yeah philz touch has a pretty nice setup now. I like the option it gives to wipe to flash a new ROM. With mine I wiped then flashed the ROM then gapps and the did the reboot and was in the boot for about 5-10mins I usually leave my phone on the boot for that long so it can process and then when you start to notice the screen dim the ROM is officially done.

                • Kevin H says:

                  scroll down and you guys will see links to tmobile,att, or sprint. i didnt see verizon.

                • Kevin says:

                  sorry guys i dont think we can post links, just go into google and paste this into the search bar. ” [14.12.2013]CWM Advanced Edition / PhilZ Touch 6.04.0 + exFAT + NTFS + MTK” should be the first link and scroll down and find s3 and which model you have. thanks Phil3759 XDA

  10. éric says:

    the rom is stable but snapchat camera front is buggy what solved for this

    • Lubby Runz-It says:

      Agreed. That is the only bug, that it messed up camera with some third party camera using apps. Snapchat isn’t the only one. The camera for Instagram also has bugs with this rom.

  11. Dex says:

    So far everything is working get ” ok google” sometimes give some issue like its not available at this moment but rather from that its working ok n the camera for me is only 2 seconds slow no big issue Great Rom all over

  12. elijah says:

    I have an issue. Tried flashing this rom and got the status 7 error. Noticed in recovery mode I was still on clockworkmod or something. But when I go into ROM Manager it shows it is completely up to date. Cannot figure out how to get the correct version. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

    • mihir says:

      Try using recovery tools in app store. When it asks to flash from a location, go to clockwork mod file/downloads/recovery then select the 6.0.4 etc. It worked for me. I had the same problem with ROM manager.

  13. Kiesman says:

    I was just wondering, most of these guides mention wiping. Does the phone always have to be wiped to flash something like this? I have a lot of data I’d like to keep that (in the past) has never properly backed up with backup software.

    • Doctor Monster says:

      Something that works for me. First, always make backup of your current ROM. Don’t do anything without a backup. Second, do your wipe, clear cache, format system. Third, install any ROM you want compatible with your phone and don’t forget to install the correct gapps for your ROM. That’s it. Anything goes wrong, don’t panic! Boot into recovery and restore your backup.

  16. Justin Browning says:

    I have installed the linked nightly and then have installed the current 20131212 nightly and still have the same two issues:

    1. When trying to open an Incognito Tab in the stock browser, I get a Force Close (not a huge deal, but slightly annoying).

    2. When using the Photosphere Gallery/Camera apk listed above, I am unable to take Photosphere picutres. I can view them just fine, but when trying to take, the camera guides me to level the shot, but doesn’t populate the “viewfinder” with any camera imagery. The camera appears to work correctly, but it will not show the picture and subsequently will not allow me to take the other portions of the Photosphere image.

    SD card not mounting on SGH-T999 T Mo. It’s a SanDisk Ultra 64 gb and it’s working. Checked it on my PC. Tried SDFormat it but it still wouldn’t read it. Tried to format it from phone but to no avail. Checked the comments on this page but no one has this problem. Everything else is working fine. Please help

    • Ferdz says:

      try to format your external sd card to FAT32 file system. I used 3rd party software for it. just can’t recall the free software’s name that I used. CMW recovery will be able to recognize your ExtSD.

      • Andrew says:

        I use EaseUS Partition Master. Works great on all the cards that I’ve ever formatted. I have a couple 64gb cards that will only work in certain devices if you reformat to Fat32.

  23. Pam says:

    Tried installing the custom rom for Galaxy S3 AT&T SGH-i747 , but getting error code 7. Saw the tutorial to get over the error by updating the update_script , but if i read more details of the assert statement it does not have my Baseband version specified there which is I747UCLH9 , so wondering if the given rom is the correct rom for my phone , as I don’t want to brick it.. Please help.

  24. drewnin says:

    Ok, starting to notice a few bugs….

    1st tied to take a photo and got error message “can not connect to camera”….. Fixed after a reboot
    2nd lost network signal “no service”….. Fixed after a reboot
    3rd galery app won’t load error message “can not access sd card”….. fixed after a reboot
    4th Batter usage is terrible….

    so periodical bugs, hope to get a more stable version soon, but not too bad for now.

  25. fred says:

    where are the contacts and don’t forget to get the newest gapps, you won’t have a keyboard if you don’t.

  28. sam says:

    Is t-mobile wifi calling working? Im with t999?

  29. Andrew says:

    I’ve been running this on my sprint S3 since the article posted and so far it has been working good. Everything seems to be working just fine. The only issue I have is when I’m using an app and I hit the home button, there’s a pretty noticeable lag before it brings up the home screen when exiting an app. I also noticed that when crank the screen brightnesa all the way up it gets significantly brighter than the previous CM10 version I was running. Just thought it was interesting enough to post, I usually just use the auto bright but I like to check out all the setting on a new ROM.

  30. todd says:

    Although i like this rom better than stock, by no means is this rom stable. Before people judge…i factory reset and wiped before install. Here are the issues i have so far

    1. Bluetooth does not connect with my vehicle or wireless headphones, unless i manually go into bluetooth stting and press connect on the bluetooth ite,. On stock, it auto connects. Also, sometimes i need 2-3 attempts before connecting. Also, sometimes two bluetooth icons are on the top of my notification screen.

    2. Browser that came witht he rom did not work. I downloaded chrome and dophin which do work

    3. when i swipe down right and the tiles/layers menu comes down, half of the icons do not work..mostly bluetooth and wifi. I have to manually go into settings and turn on bluetooth, wifi to go on and off.

    4. SD card removed error(i ne;leive this subject may have been touched in this forum). I have not paritioned it since installing rom, but will try

    5. When powering down, it freezes and says “powering down” until i pull battery. Soo, i have to pull battery to restart phone evrytime

    6. Caller ID seeting. I just simply cannot find this new kitbkat feature(may not be on this update yet, or i just cant find)

    7.Hnagouts/Messaging – I made hangouts my default and i turned off notification in “messaging”. I still get notifications from messenger(soemtimes) rather than just hangouts.

    I am assuming i cannot be the only one with all these issues, Hoping for some advice?? I do appreciate the hard work. And i will continue to donate.

  38. Robbie says:

    I installed this ROM on my T999 earlier this week and I have to say I absolutely love this ROM. Though my only problem with it is that I can only get 3G service where I KNOW for a fact I had 4G with other ROMs. Is there a way to fix this, or am I better off going back to some touchwiz ROM? I installed everything according the directions, wiped the phone, delvik cache, etc.

    Interestingly enough, I was able to update to this ROM using TWRP on my SGH-T999 successfully. NO FCs, errors or whatnot.

  44. Kevin says:

    So I’ve been trying to install ROMs onto my Sprint Galaxy S3. I have rooted it using the recovery from philz (based on CWM I believe). I have tried to install CM 11 and CyanFox (both based on Android 4.4). Both fail with the same error:

    Installing update…
    assert failed: getprop(“ro.bootloader”) == “L710VPBLJ7” || getprop(“ro.bootloader”) == “L710VTBMB1” ||….
    (that goes on for a while, some other assertions)
    E: Error in /data/media/
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted

    I apologize for my inexperience, I’m quite new to Android. Is this what it sounds like? Under About Device, the Model number is SPH-L710, and the Baseband version is L710VPAMG2. I would very much like to get CM 11 working, it looks great. Any ideas?

  45. mkalatrash says:


    I have successfully installed this amazing ROM and every thing works perfectly, but when I change the device language to Arabic every thing gets aligned to right!! Is there any possible way to keep it aligned left like the English version.


  46. cue45 says:

    why no voice mail icon or weather widgets with degrees on roms 4.2 and higher

  47. PJ Arts says:

    I downloaded the CM11 Mod and installed in on my SCH-i535 on 12/15/2013 (currently running CleanROM v7).

    On the one hand, it was the sweetest custom ROM install I have ever gone through…absolutely flawless.
    On the other hand, after it was installed, I found that my battery life was about 30% less, I had consistent lag when opening new apps and a number of key apps had performance issues…or, wouldn’t work at all (Nova Launcher, Kaiten Mail, Contact Lookup Pro and Contact Viewer). After 4 days of intensive use, I used Nandroid to go back to CleanROM. I’m sure KitKat will be worth using once a truly ‘clean’ ROM is in production. However, I cannot recommend CM11 in its current state of development.

    This is the first time i’ve ever messed with an Android but i’ve Jailbroken iPhones before and am an IT guy so i’ve got the figured out for the most part.
    Only 1 question, I’m buying a US Cell S3 from a friend but I have AT&T. Do i need to flash the US Cell ROM then do the trick to enable the GSM Network or can i just flash the AT&T Rom straight to the phone?

  51. Edwin says:

    It’s the perfect ROM but the voicemail app is missing.

  52. Edwin says:

    Instead I get a text message with a link to hear the message but that doesn’t work. Love the ROM but need my voicemail.

    Everything works perfectly fine… Except for the wi-fi, wich is why I am not using this one anymore until a better version arrives.
    Or if someone has a fix for this problem.
    Is this a regular kitkat bug, or is it just me?

    Does it have dpi settings? being able to adjust dpi is one of my favorite features of roms.

  57. Al says:

    This Rom installed perfectly with everything working on my SGH-I747. The only one flaw I noticed is my battery life goes down quick! Would anyone know what setting to adjust to save my battery life? This is a wonderful rom and would like to keep is provided better battery life.

    • drewnin says:

      same phone, same problem…

      the WiFi is not going to sleep when not in use… in other words its constantly pinging even when not transferring data. to fix this I just turn on and off my wifi from the quick setting in the pull down menu, when not needed, or turn off wifi location for more accurate location.

      hope that helps you!
      other than that running flawlessly for me I747 at&t

  58. asterios says:

    Hey all, this ROM runs very well except 1 thing so far.
    I wiped data, factory reset, formatted data, cache, and system before installing.
    Every now and then I lose my network connection for no apparent reason. After reboot, its fine. Any ideas anyone? I hate to say it, but I won’t stay on this nightly if the problem persists, which sucks because otherwise I love it!

  59. Grant says:

    The GPS is terrible….call quality and overall reception is very poor….on a stock based ROM both worked flawlessly, I have the Verizon S3 and Verizon has the best coverage in my area….my phone went from 4-5 bars to
    0-1. Besides that everything works good but if you want your phone to actually be a phone or need GPS don’t flash this

    Awesome ROM! bluetooth isn’t working 100% for me on an i9300 with my bluetooth speaker: the signal quality has a high range that it oscillates between. Still loving it though.

  63. luis says:

    DOES WIFI TETHER WORK ON THIS ROM? I tried few ROMs and noticed that the native tether feature never works and android WiFi tether always has errors. Only with CM ROMs.

  64. D says:

    My WiFi doesn’t work on this new rom? Help please?

    hey max happy holidays , bro i have a small question i have a i9300 but my phone freezes every single day… per day i need to reboot it at least 10 times if you can get back to me with some answers will appreciate that.. i’ve try stock rom and the same ..

  66. Rohan says:


    I have CM 10.2 installed on my phone currently. Could I install without doing a factory reset?

    This ROM is fairly stable but for me the battery life was no so great. Hopefully liquid smooth comes out with 4.4 ROM soon.

    Galaxy S3 (Sprint)

    After flashing this rom, I found that my Play Store and a few other apps I’ve have installed are all missing. I downloaded and reinstalled the latest play store. When I click it, it opens but immediately closes.. Is there a way I can fix this?

My main problem is using apps like Skype and yahoo, when I try to make a voice or video call with yahoo it force closes. With Skype in a voice call ppl can’t hear me and on video call I can see them but they can’t see me. Is there any fix for this?

    What are the major differences between this ROM and the Quantum 4.4.1 ROM?

  73. Dakota says:

    Maybe someone can help me. My s3 sprint doesn’t connect to the computer anymore.I’m familiar with rooting and doing roms. I installed the 4.1 rom for sprint and wifi didn’t work so I went back to the nandroid back up I did but now I lost root I can’t connect my computer. I have all drivers installed om my computer and I’ve tried multiple cords and 2 different computers. And nothing works all it does is charges. Really irritates me. Now I have no root and reset my phone to stock anf still no connection . 🙁 can anyone help???

  74. Tom Harkins says:

    The sprint version is full of bugs. It is nowhere close to a stable release. I didn’t have wifi when I flashed it and couldn’t access my 32gb fat32 formatted micro sd card right off the bat. I didn’t keep it long enough to find any more bugs, I just went back and re-flashed CM10.1 and all issues disappeared and everything started working again.

    today marked the newest released version of android 4.4.2 snap shot version. not a nightly version

    snap shot versions are more stable than nightlies if you have a nightly version then you can just install zip file over the other one. just do a back up first.

    I did and had no problems.

  79. Lou Peterson says:

    I have an SPH-L710 provided by Virgin Mobile on the Sprint network but got an error message in ClockWorkMod indicating that my device is a MetroPCS device.

    This package is for “d2spr, d2spi, d2tfnspr” devices; this is a “d2mtr”

    When I flashed the MetroPCS ROM it worked with a couple of bugs. First, I couldn’t get it to pick up a 4G signal. Second, auto-rotation to either landscape view was always upside down.

    It appears that the rotation issue is not specific to this ROM because I tried two other KitKat ROMs (CyanFox and BAM) with the same inverted rotation issue. Each time I restored back to the stock ROM auto-rotation worked correctly.

    I have a new Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 that I accidentally allowed to update to 4.3. I’m under impression you can’t root this latest version? If I can, what steps do I follow as a newbie? I appreciate everyone’s help!

  82. Steve K says:


    I have scrolled down and do see links for Sprint. But, I don’t see any info on how to root a Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 with 4.3 for the “first time”. I get the impression that it may not be possible to root a 4.3 version yet? Can anyone help?

    Everything is great but I use the Glide vid messaging app and it will not work on this rom.

  91. Larry says:

    I have a TMobile SGH-t999L. CWM says it doesn’t support the L version. I’m assuming it’s because it’s an LTE phone. What can I do?

  92. Korey says:

    I flash this rom and i don’t have my rom manger and playstore everything work i just can download apps.

  93. Syed A says:

    I installed this rom about 3 weeks ago and I think I have found a pretty steady issue that is happening almost every day that I get a loss of wireless signal every few hours. This loss of signal lasts for 30 to 60 seconds and sometimes more than that. Don’t know what needs to be checked settings wise. Same goes with data. Goes from 3g to HSPA to HSPA+ to LTE and back in cycles every single time. This issue has consistently bothered me when I needed to place an urgent call. I will try to go up on the nightly build from CM and see if this is fixed, otherwise go back to stock rom.

  94. Joshua says:

    First, I’d like to thank you for sharing such amount of knowledge to us simple mortal! Everything is well explained and even though I had some issues rooting my phone (4.3 and knox), I was able to complete every steps except for the last one… installing the rom 🙁

    When I start installing “CM11 ROM with Android 4.4.1 KitKat for Galaxy S3 T-Mobile SGH-T999 (or Canadian SGH-T999V)”, I get right from the start an assertion failed error. The assertion code line is printed and apparently my baseband version is not part of the valid ones. I’m wondering if there’s a version of this rom which will install for my phone.

    Here is some info:
    – Canadian Videotron phone (SGH-T999V).
    – ro.bootloader = T999VVLUEML2
    – Using CWM Recovery

    Any help will be greatly appreciated, I can’t stand the latest 4.3 update from Samsung, my phone is now laggy and the interface changes annoy me.

    my mobile hotspot is not working on verizon s3. Any suggestions or help please? thanks

    • Todd mitchell says:

      Mine has never worked through WiFi…only works with wired tether… I need the WiFi too..asked the forum 2x but no one responded. I assume you can’t. I also cannot get flash to work. Stuck using dolphin

      • drewnin says:

        try using an app called “foxfi” for Wi-Fi teetering

        • Todd mitchell says:

          That’s what I use for wired tether…wireless does not work in this ROM….unless I have a wrong setting?

          • Anthony says:

            Thanks but still didnt work. Im needing the hotspot over 4G not wifi, but foxfi didnt work. The hotspot is recognized by external devices, but they just cant connect to them. thanks anyways. still not working

            • Todd mitchell says:

              Yep anthony…I guess it doesnt work since no one else chimes in…its a shame that older Roms work with that feature…but not 4.4

              • Anthony says:

                Thanks Todd, you have been awesome. Thanks for the fast replies. This always happens, I like a rom and there is one deal breaker for me on it. Looks like Im going to flash back to stock for a while. Then I’ll hate that and start looking for a better rom to fit my needs. Thanks man

  97. Alec says:

    Just thought I’d give you an update for CM11. It’s still considered a nightly ROM because of ongoing development, but most builds are very stable. I’m running 20140203 from a few days ago (at the time of post).

    • Xavier says:

      this is a very old rom. this website has not been updated in a while. there are different 4.4.2 versions available in the xda forum with fully working camera. just google search xda forum, create an account and then navigate to your appropriate carrier s3 section.

  100. drewnin says:

    I just noticed that there is a new M3 SNAPSHOT available for 4.4.2 on 04//9/2014

    I just downloaded it and in the process of backing up my M2 snapshop then I will install the M3 snapshot over the M2 without clearing any data just installing over the old one. I will post in another day or two on stability and how happy or not i am with it.

    I should be happy, M2 snapshot seemed flawless to me so M3 should be too.

    Heres the link to download from the source:

    • drewnin says:

      sorry just noticed i said 04/09/14 I meant to say released on 02/09/14

      The new M3 release is better than the M2.

      There was only 1 problem I had with M2 and it has been fixed with the M3, so great job!
      Very happy with this rom

      And as of installing M3 over the M2 with out wiping data went flawless

    When I install cm11 on s3… The installation is aborted… Plz is there any solution

    • drewnin says:

      In your not on 4.3 jellybean you need to do a double upgrade. You need to root and install an older version on cm10. You don’t need to install a ROM at that point just the cm10. Then you can upgrade to cm11 then after you have cm11 installed then you can install the 4.4.1 or higher kit Kat ROM.

      • drewnin says:

        Sorry not cm10 I mean upgrade cwm recovery. You need to install cwm 5.? What ever it is. First then upgrade to cwm recovery Once you have or higher then you can install cm11 4.4.1 KitKat or higher.
