For this week’s Galaxy S3 GT-i9300 ROM of the week, check out Pardus HD ROM “Galaxy S4 Edition”.

While keeping it minimalistic without bloatware but with latest goods like Galaxy S4 theme, Note 2 Gallery app, and Lite Camera High Quality Recording mod, the Pardus HD ROM brings you the best of latest Android 4.1.2 XXEMC3 along with stability and performance you desire.

You will appreciate the Galaxy S4 theme (enjoy the future now without buying S4) and S4 Accuweather widget along with S4 wallpapers.

For camera, the Lite Camera HQR mod brings you volume shutters coupled with higher bit-rate video/audio recording for camcorder for quicker photos and higher quality videos.

This ROM has all bloatware removed and performance/wifi/battery tweaks injected.

Other notable features included no auto conversion to MMS, unlimited contacts to SMS/MMS, up to 990 contacts, reduced home button lag, optimized virtual memory for better multi-tasking, home-screen torch, inverted GMail, and multi-window enabled for all apps.

This is another great option for those of you looking for Galaxy S4, similar to MS Team HD ROM but different and simpler.

If this sounds like the slice of the cake for your daily driving, certainly give it a ride around town this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    I can’t change my lockscreen wallpaper. I installed the fix and then the xperia lockscreen after I flashed the rom. It just stays on the pic with the kid and the balloons… Any advice?

    • James says:

      Having the same issue. All it wants to do is stay on the kid will the balloons. This will probably get me to go back to Hyperlight :/

      • Clive Warburton says:

        I have the same problem, perhaps this has been fixed in version 2. I am going toflash at wweekend so will update you.

      • James says:

        Update – I have noticed it does change. The kid with balloons is an overlay image and for a brief millisecond I saw my other image underneath flash. So looks like its something wrong with lock screen image. Perhaps it will be fixed with a new update.

        Kind of a bummer as I really liked this rom, looks as if I will be going back to Hyperlight after all.

        • Clive Warburton says:

          I have updated the rom to version 2 and the lock screen wallpaper is now customised.
          Hope this helps.

  10. Zay says:

    My apologies, yes I saw where it says GT-i9300, lol. Guess I missed that, or for some reason thought my phone was that model, only to realize it’s a SPH-L710. So, what is this Jig you are referring to, and where can I get one? Thanks again for setting me straight, lesson surely learned.

    • Brian says:

  12. Zay says:

    Thanks Brian, I saw your posting late. I sent it to Samsung Galaxy Riff Box JTAG Boot Restore / Unbrick Service to be fixed. Should have it back by end of week or early next week. But I will look into getting the Jig for future FUBR situations I might find myself in, lol.

  24. Rick says:

    I liked the sound of this so thought I’d give it a go. I’ve installed ROMS on this phone before without issue. When it rebooted after install though I was prompted to enter my decryption password, but it would not accept it. I was able to re-flash into another ROM and decrypt and use the phone fine, but under this ROM the decryption just won’t work.

    I thought I might as well just factory reset the phone, but this didn’t work either. It reporter a success but then booted up again, prompted for decryption password – and there was all my data. The data reset didn’t seem to have done anything. Could this also be to do with the encryption preventing a reset? Has anyone any idea how I might be able to get past this, remove encryption, and install the ROM I want?

  25. mafia says:
