Gummy ROM Android 4.4.2 KitKat for Galaxy S3!


For this week’s Galaxy S3 ROM of the week, check out latest version of Gummy ROM, available for AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Cricket, US Celluar, MetroPCS, and GT-i9300 Galaxy S3.

If you are looking for a good set of customization on top of latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat, definitely you cannot go wrong with Gummy ROM.

Gummy ROM features all the customization you may have seen previously with Jelly Bean AOSP custom ROMs and best of all, it runs all of it smoothly integrated with overclocking support up to 1.836Ghz(stable).

My favorite features include some of the lockscreen customization, especially the double-tap flashlight as I find any kind of flashlight shortcut handy whenever I am in dark places.

Overall, Gummy ROM Team has done a fantastic job of putting everything in working order with Android 4.4.2 KitKat with a slew of customizations you won’t get tired of. So, definitely give this a go, overclock your phone to 1.836Ghz, customize the heck out of it, and do let me know what you think!

    Thanks a lot for the update! You’re doing a great job! Ups.
    All awesome customisations aside, does everything work? Receiving calls well? Data connectivity? WiFi? BT? Camera?
    Does it feature the new KitKat dialler?
    Any word on Battery life?
    Would be nice if at least some of these things will be covered in your ROM reviews.

    • Max says:

      Yes everything works, you get everything KitKat including dialer since it’s a KitKat ROM. Battery life should be excellent (if you don’t overclock).

    • Henryh says:

      my i9300 gets failed to write on rom and gapps then reverts to default country

  2. sercour says:

    A dummy question : Is is working for a GT I9305 ?

    • Max says:

      Sorry this isn’t for i9305, you need i9305-specific ROMs for that model.

      • sercour says:

        Thanks Max,
        I’ll restart searching it. I still don’t trust what I have found.
        If anyone has a good idea of the most stable and serious custom one for a GT I9305 ?
        Thanks everybody

      • henry says:

        what am i doing wrong when flashing? every time i try to update with this rom my phone reverts to original rom that came with phone

  3. drewnin says:

    how does it stack up to cyanogen mod cm11-m3 milestone stable?

    I am running the m3 for d2att before the unification for all lte modles, and i must stay it is working 100% flawlessly, even though i see other people saying things aren’t working for certin people. but for me everything works 100%.

    I never heard of gummy rom, just wondering how it stacks up to CM11

    g3 at&t

    • Max says:

      gummy rom is based on cm11 so it should give u everything cm11 plus the customization.

      • Yo says:

        Hi There Max. Can you help me please? I just installed a rom and then im trying to install omega rom over it and the install is fine but the circle spinning thing keeps on going on and on. How can i use my phone? i just wanted to updated it and then to backup but it’s fucked up

      • Yo says:

        CyanogenMod keeps spinning around for long and i dont want to erase my stuff , i just want to backup it after. Can u help me please

  4. Wil says:

    Looks good I’m trying it now, have you had any success using Android Runtime?

  5. kanav says:

    please fix the GT- i9300 download link!

  6. ray says:

    I’ve been reading the latest stable OSE rom for the Verizon s3.

    that rom has been pretty decent but I won’t miss it. I get daily force closes, tethering almost always crashes it flash videos in the native browser crash it pretty often too so definitely looking to upgrade
    unfortunately, I pretty much need everything to work. GPS is key, texting is absolutely key, of course making and receiving phone calls is key. how’s this ROM in those regards? Any other that you would recommend highly for Verizon s3?

  7. G W says:

    Very curious about how well 4.3Photosphere runs on d2att with this 4.4.2 Gummy ROM,Currently using Darthstalker bc it has a solid photosphere camera mod. Doing a lot of them lately and don’t really want to lose that option. I was on CM11 but gave up (for now) bc I couldn’t get photosphere to work consistently.

    • Max says:

      Yup just install Photosphere:

      Make sure use Titanium Backup app to remove Gallery app then install.

      • GW says:

        So I just flashed Gummy ROM. It took a few tries for some reason; but it is running quite nicely at this point. I installed the 4.3 New Camera apk after deleting the original gallery with TB. The gallery app works great (displaying my previous photospheres etc). Camera, however, does not start the photosphere when it is properly aligned with the first (white) dot.Previous photosphere camera had blue dots. I also got a notification about no SD card, but it stopped occurring after a reboot. I cleared cache in gallery and original camera. Froze original camera. Still no photosphere taking. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thanks!

      • GW says:

        So I did a restore to an unofficial CM build of 4.4KK and ran that for a while. It had a couple things that weren’t quite right. Yesterday I flashed Gummy M2 and installed the new Google Camera app, everything is good so far!

  15. aniruddh bhatt says:

    Please fix the download link…it disconnect after 75 percent

  16. Royce says:

    Third part app issue with front camera is still there on this ROM. On latest nightly of CM-11 it is fixed. It is also fixed on Beanstalk 4.4.2.

  17. Dung says:

    Thanks for the update, Lee.
    A couple of questions for you.
    1) How long has this ROM been out ?
    2) Is it stable and does it cover all the basic features of the S3 TMO phone?
    3) Is there any bugs report yet on this new ROM?

  18. Kara says:

    Does it have the ability to do video longer than 10 seconds in mms/sms?

  19. Peter says:

    Is breathing notifications simply the blinking led light or is it something else?

  20. fred says:

    are there new gapps for this since the inception of Kitkat 4.4?

  23. Dray says:

    Can you post a link for the WiFi tether that works with this rom thank you

  24. Rod says:

    I know this isn’t the best place to ask but does anyone know how to unlock the bootloader on vzw 4.3 ota? I got the phone back form best buy with it already updated. Thank you for any info.

  25. Anthony says:

    My phone is a rooted Sprint Samsung Galaxy SIII, but when I installed the Download Gummy ROM Android 4.4.2 KitKat for Galaxy S3 everything was fine and it went through the install process like it normally does but now the phone wont even turn on, So I cant even get into the root menu or anything. Any Idea on how to fix this?

  26. mac mcmillion says:

    Still no reply as to why this rom aborts installation on international gt-i9300. Why?

  27. ben says:

    Hi is the Wi-Fi tether working and do I use the one that comes with the ROM or do I use an external app

  28. PJ Arts says:

    Lots of compliments, and only one gripe with this great ROM:

    Compliments: easy, glitch-free install/ fast, stable operation/ plays really nice with all my 3rd party apps & widgets/ lots of neat customization options/

    Gripe: the telephone app has 3 issues that I find very annoying:

    1) When I go into Call History, and choose to clear the Call Log, it doesn’t do anything

    2) When a call comes in…even if the screen is on, I get the single lock-screen unlock ‘button’. I don’t know which way to swipe, in order to answer or ignore the call.

    3) The dial-pad screen is cluttered with information that is already available elsewhere in the same app:
    *Most recent callers
    *Large icons for the first 4 names in my contact list

    This results in a dial pad that is a lot smaller then it should be, and a confusing screen

    Bottom Line: a great, stable ROM that needs some housekeeping and bug-patching on the phone app. Its a keeper!

  29. Javyvt says:

    Tethering is not working on my Galaxy s3 T-Mobile

  30. Vlad says:

    Hey Max, I think the GT-I9300 rom isn’t the complete version on the download site.

  31. PJ Arts says:

    After a couple of more days of use with my sch-i535, found another bug:

    When I turn on the speakerphone, the speakerphone doesn’t turn on.

  32. Sam Sraan says:

    The GT-I9300 version is not working. Aborts installation.

  33. glaseryaniv says:

    Yeah, the I9300 is corrupted for sure. Too bad, was looking forward to this.
    For now running
    with everything working 🙂

  34. Jervis says:

    tried to flash gummy rom for the i9300 but it said error

  35. ItsMe says:

    not as flexible as CarbonRom but okay overall. Minor crashes on d2tmo

  36. junior says:

    Just curious how do I take a screen shot with this Rom ..everything else is flawless I used viper until this and it has so many features but I just can’t figure out my screen shot any help would be great

    • maykel says:

      I think in Venom’s roms you use power + home to take a snap shot, but in this one, there is no shortcut, I think you need to enable it within the power settings, and once done that, you hold down power, and it will give you the option to restart, shutdown, airplane mode, and snap-shot.
      I hope this helps

      • junior says:

        I found it for anyone else who may have been having the issue with screen shot it is a toggle switch that you have:
        Settings>gummy interface>status bar /notification drawer>quick settings and from there you can add screen shot as a toggle switch

  37. junior says:

    I mean venom not viper

  38. kicsi says:

    The gt i9300 zip is corrupt. I tried downloading several times but always the same error.

  41. Joe P says:


    I cant make my mms work on this ROM I tried re-instating it and nothing. Any suggestions? I have a verizon galaxy s3. I’m stuck with no texting pics for now.

  42. tommy says:

    Absolutly the fastest 4.2.2 rom out there. Really shocking how smoothly my phone is working., it was worth the wait for this one. Good choice. I’ve been trying all the roms over at xda but none of them come close to this level of performance. This rom isn’t even listed over there. Keep up the good work.

  43. umair says:

    What if I have a sgh-i747m would it still work.

  44. maykel says:

    Hey Max, or anyone who knows the answer.
    most of these roms do not come with Visual Voicemail app. including this one. How can I install that and let it work.
    I tried saving the apk file from my stock rom, and installing it that way, but whenever I get a voicemail, it comes along with a few texts from random number, telling me to check my voicemail, while the voicemail does appear in the app, when I listen to it, after I stop it or it stops on its own, a loud static sound starts playing using the speaker, and the only way to turn it off is re-starting the phone.
    Anyone has any ideas as to how to get the visual voicemail app?

    • Nick Goblirsch says:

      LOL i know i’m pretty late to answer you but i found the best solution is to install Google Voice. Works like a charm.

  45. Dray says:

    Any word with that Wi-Fi tether yet?

  46. Greg Rickson says:

    I tried to download the 3 times and EVERY time it was corrupted.
    Is there another location or could you please check the status of the current file and let me know. I would REALLY like to try this ROM … and according to Google you are the only source of it !!!

  47. MasterSweet says:

    Does snapchat get buggy?

  48. Paul Sociu says:

    I know that is a dumb question but for my I9300 with root 4.1.2 and Pardus rom,,for install this rom, ,all I have to do is to follow the steps that are in the description, or is something else or an other step. Please help. I don’t want to brick my phone

  49. maykel says:

    I’ve been using this room for about 4 days now. Definitely do not love it (Using Sprint Galaxy S3)
    -The text app is not there, and it defaults to hangout to texts (not a fan)
    -The phone screen seems to remain off from time to time, when I receive a new message, and it won’t turn on, until I restart.
    -There isn’t a visual voicemail app. I downloaded one from a different site but when I get a voicemail, after I finish listening to it. It turns the speaker loud and only static and bad reception sounds come out, until the device is restarted
    -Phone has restarted on its own about two times now.
    -When using wifi facebook won’t connect for some odd reason. but other things will work
    -I had slim bean before, and while it is also buggy, I think it’s still better than this one.

  50. sgs says:

    Hi, i want to ask you about this rom with sgs-s3 m0? It will be good with that rom?

  52. Conan says:

  53. Pat says:

    Will this rom work on the SGH-T999L on T-Mobile? Thanks.

  54. Shaw says:

    Is there any way to change the Recent apps UI? I really love the iPhoney UI used on the AOKB ROM is there a method to use this Regents Apps UI?

  55. khader says:

    hi Max,

    love your work, where is the option to answer phone calls with the home button on this rom? can’t seem to find it.

  56. James Cygnus says:

    Nothing but problems with this ROM.. Camera freezes up as well as a number of other commercial apps that work fine on every other ROM I’ve tried.

  57. TONGS says:

  58. jari says:

  59. TONGS says:

    You need to update your CWM Recovery to v6.0.4.3 or higher

  60. b self says:

    I’m using a sprint gs3 with cwm recovery.
    Boot time is a minute and half. I can run at 1.8 GHz stable. Pie add on works sound mod works. Everything is great but the signal takes a minute to grab back a data connection.

    • b self says:

      Also no there is no voicemail app just use Google voice or find the KitKat app from a newer phone(got mine from my gs4)

  61. Dray says:

    Any luck with Wi-Fi tether yet

  62. Sprint gs3 user says:

  63. Jeff R says:

    I first want to thank you for all your work, I have enjoyed your ROM videos and download and installed this on my Tmobile Galaxy s3, but wanted to know if you have any guidance on the contacts portion of this ROM. I have long contact notes but this ROM only shows a portion of what my gmail contact displays. My question is : Is their any way to increase what is displayed so I can see all my notes.

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

    what if we dont install gapps????

  71. Jameson says:

    Download the custom ROM Gummy ROM for T-Mobile version. Notice that WiFi tethering not working do you have any suggestions or fixes

  72. Malcolm says:

    Max, when will you be releasing KitKat touchwiz ROMs?

    • Max says:

      TouchWiz is released by Samsung first, since they are not updating TouchWiz ROMs anymore, there will probably be no more TouchWiz but you can install AOSP roms such as this one.

  73. Manfredo says:

    Whats up Max, i rooted and installed this ROM on my T mobile 999 galaxy and installed the 4.4.2 gapps but i get nothing but Google play and google.process.gapps FC.
    Sorry if its a noob question but this is literally the first phone that has given me any sort of problems. I’ve followed your instruction down to every details and this device just does its own thing.


  74. Jose says:

    Will this rom work for Galaxy S3 t999l LTE version? I already rooted it and disable KNOX with RomManager since it was updated to 4.3 jelly bean.

  75. Juan says:

    Hi Max, great work as always! Rom is working great for me so far. Wanted to know where to go to update prl and profile? Thanks again

  76. Juan says:

    Also how can I get to the yahoo weather app on the lock screen to change the settings. Thanks

    • BJ says:

      It’s based on your location settings, it picks up where you are and updates about twice a hour I think. Aside from that, the options are VERY limited if any as it doesn’t show up under widgets or apps 🙁

  77. JJ says:

    Does this have free WiFi tether (hotspot) available?

  78. BJ says:

    Has anyone gotten MHL to work with this ROM? I thought MHL relied on TouchWiz based ROMs to make it work. Haven’t been able to get it to work since I switched ROMs, Any option. Also lastly the phone will reboot occasionally when entering and exiting Google Voice to text or tring to bring up the keyboard, even with latest GApps, keyboard, etc.

  79. Ben says:

    Hi, my phone is stuck on the gummy screen, sometimes it will just reboot and keep rebooting other times it just stays at that screen for 5-10 mins then nothing, then sometimes it attemps to load and says something fails and restarts…i then try to get to the reboot screen to install new rom or delete this one and it goes to a screen that says downloading do not turn off…. then nothing im not sure what to do…. any help plz…

    • demus g says:

      I would do a factory wipe and then restore from Nandroid. Then at least your phone would be usable and then you can start afresh with the ROM install. What recovery are you using? You should also check the MD5 sum before installing a zip. I use MD5 checker app.

  80. nick says:

    the settings crash when i try adding another “Google account” (really bad)

    and this is still the shitty rom that doesn’t allow me to post videos “your device doesn’t support this” so still can’t try out vine again (if I wanted to)

  81. Nuno Matos says:

    First of all great job in root review for galasy S3.

    I have a problem with my galaxy S3 and asop roms (and gummy rom also), the problem is after some time my phone is in sleep when i turn it back on the wifi won’t turn back on no scanning only when i toggle airplane mode the wifi comes back on, do you know any fix for this problem? Could it be a kernel issue?


  82. lilcasino510 says:

    Just tried this on my Sprint GS3 and it is stuck on the Gummy start-up screen. I can’t even get back to CWM when booting into recovery mode. I tried using ODIN to make sure CWM was on there but still won’t do anything but go to Gummy screen.

  83. Michael G. says:

    Ok, I’m trying to run this on my Verizon GS3 with Safestrap because my phone has the 4.4.2 update (boo). I thought Gummy was a TW-based ROM, right? Will it work with Safestrap? I’ve flashed it into ROM Slot 1, and I tried it in ROM Slot 3 to see if that would work. No dice. The screen is dark. But something is working because when I press the menu button at the bottom, the phone vibrates. And when I hold the volume down, it flips to vibrate mode as well. I have to pop the battery and start in recovery mode and go back to my stock ROM. Any ideas?


  84. roncad says:

    Hey Max, is this a pretty stable rom ? And is the free hotspot working in this rom ?
