For this week’s Galaxy S3 ROM of the Week, check out Spirit ROM, available for AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, Canadian, US Cellular, Cricket, and MetroPCS Galaxy S3.

Based on latest Android 4.4.4, Spirit ROM is a new kid on the block, bringing a great combo of customization options along with excellent performance and battery life.

Inside Spirit ROM, you will find Spirit Controls to fully customize your phone to your liking.  You will find almost every imaginable AOSP custom features like status bar customization (brightness control, double-tap to sleep, show notification count, show network speeds, etc…), quick settings panel customization ( quick pulldown, floating window, etc…), Notification drawer customization, Lockscreen notifications, Identicons, Gesture Anywhere, OmniSwitch, App Bar, App Circle Bar, Active Display, Driving Mode, HALO, HOVER, and a few more.

This is version 1.0 and for the very first version, it’s pretty darn stable and impressive.  If you are flasholic and just need to try the best of the latest, definitely give Spirit ROM a try this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    Hello max I would like to know if Video calling in tango or Line work in this ROM,or they don’t in any costum ROM?

    • Max says:

      They should run fine yes. Line is a bit weird though sometimes doesn’t even run on stock firmwares so sometimes it’s the apps that are buggy not the ROMs.

  3. Chris says:

    Hey Max, am I missing something? or do the “back” and “Settings,” on phone buttons not work? ( the ones next to the home button)
    I do see and am using the on screen Arrow, Play, Stop buttons, but it is awkward being as I am so used to the other way.
    If that’s the only way then is an update forth coming that includes use of the buttons around the home key?

    Hi how do I remove the default google search bar from the main screen….great rom btw really smooth.

  11. Jacob K says:

    5 days strong running this ROM with ZERO glitches or FC’s. Typical 4.4.4 with ALL the features. Camera (both rear and front) work fine as well as the plethora of other customizations. Liquid Smooth still has the most options and functionality, but Spirit is making a big name for themselves with this FIRST build. Better battery life versus Liquid and Carbon but only a suspend action rather than the battery saver mode which makes them about equal. I’m a flashaholic but like what Spirit is bringing to the game!

  12. JoeyrinGIN says:

    Hi I’m trying to sync my Facebook contact… Settings > Apps > Facebook… But no option to sync contacts… Samething in people > contacts to display… No options… Is there any way to fix this?

  17. Edi says:

    I flashed this on the Sprint variant, and I now seem to not get a signal of any kind anymore. I Switched back to stock, but the problem persisted. Fortunately Wifi still works, so I can still kinda use it. I also talked to my provider, and they said I was connected and there shouldn’t be any problems. Any advice? In the meantime, I’m gonna keep flashing other ROMs and reset my phone via the wifi MRL method as suggested by my provider.

    Hey all I’m a noob. I have been doing lots of research. Max is soo smart. I think I watched all his videos regarding Samsung Galaxy S3.
    I have ordered a Samsung Galaxy S3 (Sprint) it should be here Saturday. I believe it comes with stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Should I flash to this firmware when i get it to ND8 Android 4.4.2 [Latest] OR leave it with 4.0 ICS ? I plan to root it and try out the different custom roms. Or should I just update the bootloader to ND8?
    Thanks for any suggestions. I just want as much info as possible before I start messing with the phone.
