For those of you looking to convert your Galaxy S3 into OnePlus One, we’ve got a surprise for you (if you haven’t heard yet). I know many of you are actually trying to buy a OnePlus One or perhaps want to check it out.
Thanks to custom ROMs and open source development you can install CM11 ROM along with HighOnAndroid OnePlus One Conversion Kit to fully turn your Galaxy S3 into OnePlus One! (This gives you everything from OnePlus One software features including the camera, lockscreen, Hexo theme/font, AudioFX app, Privacy Guard, and WhisperPush. Everything works except screen-off gestures.)
Now, also CM11 ROM now has gotten very stable, the “snapshot” M9 version is available for most Galaxy S3 models. So if you want to turn your Galaxy S3 into OnePlus One, definitely check it out this week and do let me know what you think!
Download CM11 ROM Snapshot M9 for Galaxy S3 (for all AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint/Verizon/Canadian)
Download Android 4.4.4 Gapps [You can use Stock or Micro]
NOTE: You need to update you CWM Recovery to v126.96.36.199 or higher OR also update your TWRP Recovery to v188.8.131.52 or higher. You can update your recovery by downloading CWM/TWRP then using Flashify app CLICK HERE.
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, install Conversion Kit, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop or get force-closed keyboard error on boot, reboot into CWM recovery, go to Mounts & Storage->format /system. For TWRP, go to Wipe->Advanced Wipe->Wipe /system.)
