    Where are the roms for this phone? The pacman ROM, slimbean, and other good ones like liquid smooth or any super fast battery saving ROMs that are simple like cm11? Do more people need to port sprint made ROMs? If so then nobody's posing the converted ROM here !!

    Sprint roms don't need to be ported because Sprints SG3 and our SG3 are the same device. Just delete the asserts and flash.

    Unless someone who does it for themselves shares it here - correct.

    Check out the pinned howto

    The fun and expected thing about android is if you want 3rd party stuff and mods - you really need to learn what you are doing. Thats the fun part!

    MK5 version?

    Never really thought about it to be honest. Rocking Carbon KK for now and loving it. This semester (last one) ends late April so I may have one out by then.

    Id have to base it on others work because I have allowed the MK5 update - never will. I pulled the MG2 files off my own phone an built that ROM. Since I already have a JB bootloader (MG2) I refuse to get KNOX'd up. lol

    I've so been hoping they'll just remove Knox, most likely they won't they'll only update it but I've been seeing news and threads in different places about Knox not being as secure as Samsung believes and I even saw a news article about certain ppl getting malware/ad bombed on there Knox secure apps

    What is wrong with CM11? What else do you need? I almost fell out of my chair when I saw ebildude123's CM11 ROMs are only 200MB vs 971MB for modified stock. Holy bloat...

    I don't know, but I find that those higher versions of android taking too much away and the ui is too much black and grey, oh and the statusbar is slower than s2 mini(wtf) I just want something simplified and smooth, I just don't want all those bells and whistles, you can do so much until things become too complicated and cluttered, I don't like it when you cram all the things you can think of in one rom, but have it run sluggish and lack compatibilities and geatures(ie, some tweaks don't support aosp roms and such) I liked it when things were simple like ics, but don't forget, I like my technical features like flash on lockscreen and gpu overclock and antialiasing in the settings, and if your a noob in somethings in terms of knowing details of how to fix stupid problems like mms not working or voicemail or phone or any other thing, than you wont appreciate that you have an all in one device stuffed with features but wont make a phone call, also in tired of worring about the 3 custom romson this forum, when sprint has like 50+, makes me sound lazy, but im not fond of changing files unless it says obb, or apk, especially when my phone is at a state of being more compromised because of knox, I don't want to flash anthing sprint and have a nice paperweight because I didn't know it came with a bootloader, I know I sound stupid saying this, but I just don't want a bricked phone, I was in a simmiliar situation when my victory bricked, scared my tits right off, but now its different with being knoxed up and all, thanks if you read this all.
