For this week’s Galaxy S3 AOSP ROM of the Week (What is AOSP?), check out Gummy ROM!
Now back with Android 4.4.4, Gummy ROM also has released their M3 milestone, meaning it’s stable release with everything working out of the box. (For all models except GT-i9300, which is still nightly.)
With the latest Gummy ROM, you will find a nicely, organized ROM Control-like settings called Gummy Interface, allowing user to quickly and easily tweak their phone to the fullest. Gummy ROM has always been one of my favorite custom ROMs since it has many of customization options integrated flawlessly.
Inside the core of Gummy ROM Settings, you will find Gummy Interface, which allows you to customize and tweak everything from your status bar, notification drawer, quick settings, hardware keys, soft keys, PIE Controls, HeadsUp pop-up notifications, Power Menu, Lockscreen, and plenty more. (See video overview for demo.)
Overall, Gummy ROM is a nice choice for those of you who want to latest and great Android 4.4.4 with the most customization options so definitely give this guy a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
