For this week’s Galaxy S3 ROM of the Week, check out Resurrection Remix ROM, available for most Galaxy S3 variants including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, US Cellular, MetroPCS, Cricket, GT-i9300, and GT-i9305.
Based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, Resurrection Remix ROM by XDA user @WestCrip brings you the best of the latest KitKat along with speed and ton of customization. For those of you with U.S. Galaxy S3, you can even install Lean Kernel to get overclocking up to 1.836Ghz stable.
Resurrection Remix ROM probably was one of the best ROMs available for the Galaxy S2 and now is back in full force to satisfy Galaxy S3 users’ hunger to have the best custom ROM available.
Inside the ROM, you will find a ton of customization including Halo floating notifications, Active Display, lockscreen notifications, custom animations, screen recording, battery bar, and a ton more. Also Resurrection Remix ROM comes with two launchers, stock Android KitKat and Nova launcher with ability to easily switch launchers with Home Launcher switcher in settings.
Overall, Resurrection Remix ROM runs near flawless in all the S3 variants I have tested so definitely this ROM is highly-recommended for those of you looking for a good, stable ROM for the next month or so. Give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)
If you want overclocking, flash Lean Kernel after installing ROM. (Not for GT-i9300/i9305!!!)
