For this week’s Galaxy S3 ROM of the week, check out Vanir ROM with Android 4.3.1, available for AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, GT-i9300, and GT-i9305 Galaxy S3s.
Vanir ROM is an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) with the latest Android 4.3.1. Did we say 4.3.1?
Yes, Vanir ROM is one of the only custom ROMs currently available with Android 4.3.1, which was pushed out to Nexus 7 LTE owners couple days ago but luckily, Vanir ROM developers have ported to the Galaxy S3.
What can you expect with Android 4.3.1? Well, not much as far as visually but there are some subtle performance improvements and you will find some easter eggs in certain places. We ask you to find some of those and see if you can identify any new features on Android 4.3.1 previously not on Android 4.3.
Other than Android 4.3.1, Vanir ROM is a super-fast AOSP ROM with lots of AOPK ROM Control-like UI/system customization. Inside “Vanir Customizations”, you will be get the latest HALO floating notifications, PIE Controls, and ability to customize everything on your phone just like AOKP ROM Control.
Overall, Vanir ROM is another great AOSP ROM you should check out as it’s “on the rise”. So, give it a test drive this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
