Default galaxy s4 rom?

alright well this is kinda a open discussion rather than a real question. but to start it off, what are the odds that our beloved s3 gets a s4 based rom.

is the s3 capable of doing s4 features such as the double camera thing and the hover feature etc etc.

I'm just curious because from the reviews of the s4 the only reason I'd buy is for the 13mp camera, the other features don't really drive me to buy the device.

results may vary but for the most part my s3 is pretty damn responsive so my the hardware under this hood is just fine for me (opinion)

well any who, tell me your thoughts and if you wouldn't mind seeing a s4 based rom for the s3.

From what I've read, the S3 is gonna get some of the S4's features but only those that are hardware compatible. A S4 rom isn't out of the questions, devs just modify stock touchwiz and voila!

I've been using moar for a few weeks now. It does in fact have a lot of the s4 sw in it as of the last update. I love it. Its my daily ROM when I'm not testing out new ones.

Every current touchwiz rom is going to be based on 4.1.2

And since they're based on stock, everything works

MOAR is on 4.1.2 but has a lot of 4.2 options built in. It also comes with morphology which makes the ui completely customizable. (huge selling point for me) I love that you can theme your status bar/toggles/mms/kb however you want. And it is updated quite frequently keeping flashaholics like me happy. Lol

Alrighty folks, I ran Hyperdrive. It has a lot of nice and convenient features that are easily accessible, but it drained my battery like no other and lets face it, Morphology is just freaking great

Make a backup of your ROM, and definitely play with MOAR for a few hours. But I do understand if Touchwiz just ain't your cup of tea
As much as I do love CM, I'm addicted to my Facebook integration (contacts, people's pictures in sms, etc.) and I only found one ROM and that was for the Evo 3D which ran CM AND had Facebook integration

I want a pure AOSP ROM. When everything else available is based off of CM they all kind of have the same issues.

Its almost there, but there are times when it just doesnt work and I have to go back to touchwiz, which has its own issues.

Crossing my fingers on that sprint nexus 4

Probably was something that happened with the recovery; gotta love those earlier versions, eh?
