For those of you looking for some performance-enhancing, Touchwiz-based Jelly Bean ROM of your international Galaxy S3 GT-i9300, check out the latest Criskelo Jelly Bean ROM for your rooted Galaxy S3.

One of my favorite ICS ROMs, the new Criskelo Jelly Bean ROM offers the latest official Jelly Bean plus many features and customizations that allow you to tweak the UI, performance, and even many options for different kernels with its Criskelo Kitchen.

First, you will find the same experiences found on official Jelly Bean ROM plus your desired theme, I’ve selected the Criskelo theme here using the Kitchen:

Second, probably the coolest feature on the ROM is STweaks that allows you to tweak just about anything starting with CPU.  I’ve set my max frequency to 1.6Ghz for a start and there’s plenty more optimizations for your power-hungry S3 tweakers.

Also for those of you hardcore gamers who are not satisfied with the already super-fast Galaxy S3 quad-core Exynos processor performance, go into GPU setting in STweaks app and step up the GPU frequencies for additional gaming performance.  I do recommend not messing with the voltages too much unless you know what you are doing.

Third, the audio tweaks in STweaks app is pretty awesome, lets you do everything from amplifying sound to even adding 3D sound effect to your speaker and headphones.  For audiophiles out there, this is certainly a welcoming feature.

Also in MISC tab of STweaks, you can do cool things like increase the value of AC Charge and USB Charge so you can re-charge your phone faster.  FYI, if you set your AC Charge to 1200mA, you will need to use a charge with at least 1.2A to benefit from the faster charge. I think this is a great feature since I’ve got a bunch of 2A AC chargers laying around and this will totally allow me to charge my phone quicker than ever.

One thing to note is that by default, your phone cannot charge more than 1000mA but this setting allows you to do exactly that.

Other than that, Criskelo Jelly Bean ROM is a pretty solid ROM that adds onto the stock Jelly Bean firmware so you have nothing to lose.

If you’ve been looking to flash a good Jelly Bean custom ROM based on TouchWiz, definitely give this one a try and let me know how well it went.

For installation, please refer to the latter part of the video overview above as installation instructions are in the video.

    stweaks is specific to the siyah kernel and not the ROM anyway super charger is really felt, I love the ROM and recommend it to anyone who loves the TW UX but hates the bloatware put in it

    • Acemaniac says:

      exactly Stound, Stweaks belongs to the siyah kernel, i have the siyah on my gt-i9300 with the Omega rom v27.2(jelly bean) and it is by far the best kernel i have used so far(but it`s time for dualboot on S3, cmon siyah get going)…And i always tweak the ac and usb charge to the top and works fine, on ac charge a half hour faster and i guess on the usb charge too but never really charged with usb all the way…

      • stound says:

        ooo nice to know, does it have any side effects HW wise? cuz Im gonna try it becauase of you haha, anyway, any other tweaks? btw, siyah 1.75b5 has dual boot already

      • stound says:

        I know you said it works fine but how long have you been charging with the tweak?

    Does anybody know how to get Android File Transfer to recognize my phone with this Criskelo ROM and when I download a picture it doesn’t seem to appear until I restart my phone?

    any help would be appreciated as this is a good Rom if these problems are sorted!

  14. Gobbi says:

    Hey max, i really like you websites and your videos! Keep doing your very neat and nice work!

    so, i checked out and the 14.4 is already out, if you want to update your post,
    also i think that this link would help a lot of people who doesnt know which options are the best for them, this show the pictures of the mods and descriptions, etc

    hope you find it helpful! atleast half as helpful as i think that your website is!

  15. fabian says:

    i like this rom a few things i have noticed the note 2 gallery looks really good but there is a lag going into that gallery, also a few applications force close, as for the fast dorm i dont really see if it works for me in particular, but everyone should test, one more thing i realized that normal downloads seem to pause and hang in the middle or not even start as if something is running that prevents it, can you help there max? or anyone? running the ver.14.4 kitchen siyah kern.

    What are the differents between Criskelo Jelly Bean Base ROM and Criskelo Kitchen?
    Have i to download twice or download one of them?

  17. Jamilio says:

    The base ROM installs the system and you need to install this first before installing the kitchen package which contains mods / themes / apps.

    Version 15 is now out and you might want to get this as the older versions on here had a few niggles.

    Its a very good stable ROM and lots of nice enhancements, especially beats audio and volume loud which are great if you own some good headphones. I gave overclocking the processor a whirl at 1.5ghz then 1.6ghz – no massive change in performance, though the battery unsurprisingly got a little warm at the higher end setting.

    Hope that helps!

  18. ertn says:

    I installed the rom thanks, afterwards can i turn back original rom? how?

  19. Palmystery says:

    I installed this rom recently.
    When I installing the criskelo kitchen file it when error with the kernel. I think its a siyah kernel problem, then I install the stock kernel, still not working out. When i start the phone, it stuck with “Android is upgrading..” Loading. And it goes pretty long time.
    Any solution max? Really need help here. Thx!!

    • Mooisj says:

      I have a similar problem. This is wat I do:
      – I install the ROM itself: works flawlessly
      – then I reboot once
      – then I reboot in CWM and install the kitchen
      – Kitchen loads, I make my choices
      – Then android starts upgrading and the screen “opening applications…” (or something like that) keeps loading for over an hour.

      Doing this all over doesn’t help. Any suggestions? Or should I just let it run for a couple of hours more?


  20. FilmStar says:

  23. BonBon says:

  26. gus says:

    This Rom was jittery at best, didn’t like to be connected to my computer, messed up my phone and killed my sd card.
    Ive also tried the ultima 4.2 which is wicked but crap for battery power.

    What Rom next??
