For this week’s ROM of the week, check out the latest PACMan ROM for your Galaxy S3.

Available for all variants including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, and internationl GT-i9300, PACMan ROM is a “hybrid” ROM made up of AOKP, CM10.1, and ParanoidAndroid ROMs.

If you want to experience all of those three ROMs without installing all of them and benefit having features from all the 3 ROMs with one ROM, PACMan ROM is another great candidate in addition to JellyBAM ROM (just more choices).

Inside the PACMan ROM, you will find the full AOKP ROM Control (from MR1 Build 1), ParanoidAndroid Hybrid settings, and CyanogenMod settings.

By having a mix of all three ROMs, you have many choices for navigation, running apps in Phone/Hybrid/Tablet mode, and more.

For navigation, you can use ParanoidAndroid’s PIE Control or even tweak AOKP ROM Control’s Navigation rings to enhance your Galaxy S3 experience.

If you haven’t tried PACMan ROM yet, give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

Credits – AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, GT-i9300 <--- Please donate to the developers of this ROM if you like it, thx! More notes on Device-Specific: For AT&T or T-Mobile, if you will only see 3G even if you are on HSPA+, to check this, you can go to Settings->About Phone->Status.

For AT&T, if you get stuck on 3G, go to Settings->Mobile Network->Network Mode and set to “LTE/GSM/WCDMA”, then set APN to “ATT LTE”, and reboot. Let it sit for around 10-20 minutes and it should pick up 4G LTE. If that doesn’t work, you can try dialing “*#*#4636#*#*”, goto Phone information, and try to set it to “LTE/GSM/CDMA auto (PRL)” and reboot (then let it sit for 10-20 minutes). It’s normal if it defaults to “WCDMA” but if you let it sit, it will pick up 4G LTE.

  7. matt says:

    Had to go back to stock after Jelly Bam in a painfully long process. I became concerned about combining elements from other roms into one hybrid…as far as keeping things stable. I am willing to give this one a try, but comparing it to Jelly Bam makes me hesitate…

    Hey Max Whats up….I finally tried PacMan Rom as my first 4.2 Rom. At first i was getting aggravated with the settings being in tablet mode and could not figure it out. It probably wouldnt look so small on my Note 2 but very small on my S3. So I watched your video on JellyBam and i figured it out. I actually Like it alot and i added LMT pie launcher app instead of the stock one so i could have more options and everything worked great. I like the 4.2 camera but i kinda miss my Note 2 Camera and gallery from Wicked Rom. With that said This is a Great Rom. No problem so far and actually pretty decent battery Life…Best 2 Roms right now for S3 (MY OPINION) New SynergyRom and PacMan

  10. cj says:

    I’m not to technical with this, but I used Frosty Jelly Bean before switching to this ROM. When I play my music through Bluetooth, it used to transfer the song title and artist on my screen in the car. Now that I’m on THIS ROM, it doesn’t do that. Any way to just change the Bluetooth version on this ROM?

  11. john says:

    does this rom have the note 2 keyboard and the photo sphere camera??

  12. saml says:

    • Darian says:

      Hi, If i were you i would ask my carrier because that happend to me before and i talked to my carrier sprint and they fix it for me in no time

      • Derick says:

        I did try the carrier but the reason I got was the ROM is preventing the installation of the internet

        • Derick says:

          Cheers Darian all is well

          • Darian says:

            Thats great to hear! Go a question for you….i unrooted my galaxy s3 cuz i was taking if back to sprint so they could fix something but now i got a pop up saying system update is avalible all the time and when i installed it it keeps coming back.. any suggestions i can try? Thanks

  15. Darian says:

    How is the battery life for sprint?

  16. Little Ravenheart says:

    Sprint L710 w/ the high-cell battery

    Battery life – eh, depends on how you run it. I’m still toying with my favorite apps, which means frequent reboots sometimes. I surf the web a lot also. I run Juicedefender Ultimate on ‘Customize’, with Adaway enabled most of the time. When I’m not rebooting (due to apps, NOT the ROM), and just casual internet surfing without downloading a bunch of stuff, my battery will last about two days, sometimes three depending…

    ROM says I have a total of 139 apps installed, about a dozen are live backgrounds that are inactive, but I do love my backgrounds, so I keep mine on anywhere from normal settings to minimal, with the occassional splurge on some favorites.

    I also keep my screen on mid-to-high brightness. I just don’t like auto-brightness for some reason, but I am sure it would help the battery life if I kept it on.

    Wifi Tether – WORKS!!! And with encryption also! Just rename the SSID, set your password, and viola, wifi tethering built-in. Of course this drains the battery something fierce; I’m not sure if there is a broadcast strength option somewhere, so using a lot of power is to be expected, especially since in most areas I’m in I get at least three bars of LTE.

    Overall, I really, really like this hybrid. It has just about everything I like in a ROM: custom LED colors, native wifi-tether w/ encryption, performance control. I used to be a die hard CM fan until Jelly Bean, but I am VERY satisfied with this hybrid.

    Keep up the good work you guys!!

    • Jeff says:

      What do you mean that the reboots are due to the apps and not the ROM? After installing PACman, my phone reboots at least 5 times a day.

      Are there certain apps that will make your phone reboot on custom ROMs?

  17. Jack Adam says:

    I really like this ROM. I’ve been using this ROM for 10 days now and i just love the fluidity of the ROM. Had no issues so far except one; my phone sometimes (usually once in every 4 days) gets stuck while unlocking the lockscreen. And twice was locked with screen off and when i tried unlocking it didn’t do anything. I either had to battery pull the issue, or load to recovery and reboot. Super ROM apart from these 2 small issues. Any fix to this?


  18. Kyle says:

    I have an ATT GS3 and cannot seem to get the Pacman ROM working. Everytime I try to download the zip file on the phone I always get a Status 7 error. I also tried to follow the “fix it” you have on status 7 errors with no luck. Any ideas?]


    • Ryan says:

      Download Rom Manager from the Play Store. I had the same problem trying to load any rom. It worked first try with the app. Make sure you’ve got CWM as well. I downloaded the latest version from within the app.

  19. Galaxy s3 says:

    Can I please know, whether you can dual boot this rom with fox hound rom???!!

  20. james says:

    Max, I installed PacMan rom but it is stuck on “insert coins” Game Over” What do I do now?

  21. lee says:

    Witch 4.3 rotomorrow do you think is the best. For. The ATT galaxy s3

  22. Ryan says:

    I loaded this Rom and I’m having a major issue. My android keyboard stops working immediately after launching. I cannot setup my account, text, use the browser, etc. Are there any fixes for this? I tried reloading the Rom, but to no avail. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
