Default Roms?

Anyone flash any Roms yet because I want to have a list of Roms that where flashed so others will know what's already tested and good to use

I'm downloading miui for sprint gs3 and I'll report back to let you know how everything's going

Odexed Blue (Holy Grail 3.7) works and LiquidSmooth 2.5.

I would like to try Slimbean 6.5.

I used the root method on this form so maybe that's my problem because I have twrp and still can't install it it says something about su binary on twrp


Also I have only been able to flash the miui v5 and v4 everything works expect camera and on the Odexed touchwiz my 3g never connected

I havent read the majority of this thread, but if you can't flash a ROM its probably a bad download

No I'm sure it's not that I downloaded and tried multiple times idk it's really getting to me because I'm not new to rooting or flashing and it's bothering me so bad because I can't figure out what's wrong I think our system may be set up different that's why the camera didn't work on miui and why it wouldn't let me install those roms and also why the touchwiz rom installed but I had no 3g or 4g

All the roms we flash are for sprint we have the sprint version of the gs3 so thats why im confused about the not being able to flash certain roms and camera not connecting on miui and I'm sure it is an apn thing with the 3g and 4g and btw hyperdrive and mibox works just the 3g and 4g and funny acting i've actually seen it switch to 1x and 3g no 4g Icon but data works

yes you are correct. this is the same with the s2. there was a zip we could flash or we could edit or apns. non touchwiz roms sometimes have kinks. the marquee had big problems with camera on the aosp roms. ive been reading looking for the answer.

Goodness Rom works fine. That is what i am currently running on my GS3. Here is a link to video and download. If you are having issues with data connection you have to get your MSL and change your APN settings. Most roms that i have tested that run on 4.1.2 work fine.

Ok,we can use sprint roms,but 3g will work and mms will work after you change your apns. The 4g wont work because of buildprop and modem. Our phones dont ping right for the 4g recognition. We need a dev to work on our device. Ive peeked at the Virgin Mobile forum and they already have a dev working on their device,cm'on show us some love.

Yeah I kinda figured that's the position where in I knew that these where the problem as we discussed earlier but I do really hope we get a dev soon I believe we will we just have to wait because not everyone has the money to buy the phone so I guess we'll just be waiting for a while

Yup! TDM and the guys have been trying to get the Marquee camera working on aosp ROMs for quite awhile now. Well over a year. Still, his AOKP ROM ran good despite the camera issue.


So Kevin, what ROMs have you tried so far for the S3? Anything that's fully functional?

I'm like you, I thought the same thing.
The devs will come, hopefully.

Boost pricing it at $400 was kind of high too. Thankfully the prices are starting to drop. I bought mine at Radio Shack for $349.

Bro, I have no regrets either. This phone is great. What's even better is it will hold a signal. I haven't had a dropped call since bringing it home.

I'm still figuring out all the goodies. Lol, I just found out I can unlock it with my voice. The surprises keep coming. I have a feeling this phone will be with me for some time to come.

I'm not going anywhere at least until the S4 drops which will probably be early next year. I don't think I will leave Samsung again.

I agree there too. Samsung devices are definitely nice. That Prevail of mine is almost indestructible. Lol. Having Odin sure helps too, I had TWRP flashed in a few seconds. Got this puppy rooted and was back up and running all in less than 10 minutes.

Now I'm looking at some custom ROMs.

Oh, I can't forget to give props to all the Devs who made it possible either. Thanks guys. The switch over from the HTC One SV has been a painless one.

Lol. Man, I've got to admit I got a little excited when I saw Shabby in here too. I had the Prevail the 1st week Radio Shack started selling them and was there when Shabby, Hroark, Kouma, and Bloodawn set the Prevail section on fire. Those were some great days man.

I agree, i remember when themes were a big deal on the prevail. i mean imo there's not much you can do to the S3 to make it better its an amazing device I used to hate company themed android like samsung touchwiz (glad the prevail didnt have it one of my deciding factors on getting the prevail), HTC Sense, and MotoBlur. i would def prefer vanilla android or aosp as were calling it now. but touchwiz on my S3 dont think i could live with out it! damn i still cant believe what the prevail became after they got ahold of it! which is why shabby had me all hyped could you image the S3 if Shabby, Hroark, Kouma, and Blood got in on the action! we might just have a phone that could fly us around the world, charge its self, turn the volume down on my nagging wife, dress my kids for school, and even have dinner on the table when i walk in the door. lol def


Edit: If I had the money id send em all an s3 it would def be worth it!

Once I flashed an AOSP ROM on the S3, I realize how bloated and slow touchwiz is. I literally can't go back to a touchwiz based ROM now, because I feel like I'm in slow motion.

Give it a try, you'll like the buttery goodness

I've ran a few of the Sprint TW ROMS on my Boost S3 and they work fine. Ive just had to do the MMS fix.

If you know of a AOSP ROM that is fully functional on Boost phones, please share a link. I would love to try one.

Thanks



EDIT: Running Wicked Sensations ROM right now and it's good to go. Had to go in and fix MMS but that's it. Thx to Capn069 for the great ROM info.

The ROM build is v4.2 with MD4.

My baseband is L710VPAMG2


From what I've read. it looks like a few of us are running different basebands.

I've got to thank Capn069 for the great information on the ROMs though. He is the one who recommended this ROM. I like the original blue theme and the fact that it has other themes too. You guys know me though, I'll probably end up trying all of the ROMs that are compatible with the Boost version.

We need to start a list of all the ROMs which will work with the Boost S3. That could come in very handy.

Thanks. I'm definitely glad this ROM was suggested. I've know of few other ROMs that work well with the Boost S3 but I just can't bring myself to change at the moment. I was going to try a different one today but I seem to keep finding new, cool things with this one. lol

One thing's for sure, I am loving my S3.

Any of the touchwiz roms will work with a few changes such as the mms. A data profile update fixes data. I've tried just about everything xda has as far as tw and a few aosp such as pacman and vanilla rootbox. Only problem with aosp is we need a flashable zip with the correct data and mms settings that we can flash after the rom.

There are 3 different theme variations for wicked sensations and probably a hundred different visual tweaks for it as well. Use the kuban updater and check out the notification mods and stuff.

Kevin, I had to do the MMS fix on it. Also, the only way I was able to get my MSL was to call Boost. It looks like most of the other old ways to get the MSL won't work with the new update. (GetMyMSL, aLogcat, Terminal Emulator, etc)

I followed the steps listed here. Don't flash the zip at the top. Make all the changes manually. You probably already know this but I figured I would go ahead and mention it just in case.

Another I'd suggest if it could be ran with boost is MOAR

Highly customizable too via aroma installer, more than wicked I believe.
