    hi as i said im running a rooted boostmobile samsung galaxy s3...brand new to me. and to root the phone i used Philz Touch 6 and right under it it says Clockworkmod v6.0.4.7 now i can find instructions how to install it..just not sure itll work with what i got.

    Also i went to getcm.com and downloaded the installer for cyanogenmod and the installer says that the samsung galaxy s3 is an unsupported device...is it safe to click continue anyways ????

    Philz is clockworkmod. Just touch with more features. Skip the cm installer. Download the zip over WiFi and flash through Philz. Then flash the APN fix. Then gapps.

    Look through this thread. You'll want the d2lte builds for the S3. After you've flashed it you'll need the APN fix by MopedRyder.

    CM11- This is the link to the d2lte build. It is what you will need.

    APN FIX -


    You will also need the GAPPS. I recommend the PA 0-Day mini modular GAPPS. Flash the GAPPS right after flashing the ROM. I would stay away from the Google full package GAPPS. It removes a bunch of AOSP features.

    Steps to flash.
    Download ROM, GAPPS, and APN FIX to phone.
    Boot into Philz.
    Select factory reset. Then choose install a new ROM
    Flash CM11
    Flash GAPPS
    Flash APN FIX
    Wipe cache (optional)
    Wipe Dalvik (optional) - the Factory reset /clean ROM install does this for you. I'm old fashioned and still do both cache wipes. :D

    EDIT: Changed CM11 link. Changed to d2lte build link.

    You're very welcome. There's also a THANKS tab on the bottom of a post. If someone has helped you out, hit that THANKS tab. Thanks :)

    Also, I have updated my post. The CM11 link will now take you to the correct d2lte build page instead of the Sprint builds.

    You don't necessarily have to but I do. Sometimes if I flash all at once I get issues I don't get with separate flashes.

    The only thing I ever really flash together are the ROM and GAPPS. I then reboot and go through the setup process. Boot back into recovery and flash a different kernel if I choose or the Comadose mod.

    I just flashed a ROM last night along with the GAPPS and the APN fix and everything booted up perfectly. That's about as much as I'd flash at one time.

    should i download that MMS Fix for tw roms and flash it so i can get better more consistant 4G speeds?:thinking:

    That's only for TW ROMs.
    The APN fix by MopedRyder should take care of all that with CM11 and other AOSP ROMs. The speed depends on a lot of things. Location, signal strength, number of users pulling data off the tower you are on at the time, time of day, and most of all, the ROM. These nightlies are all experimental. One build may actually have better 4G speeds than the next. It all depends on what the Devs have changed.
