Nexus/Pure Android Rom for Samsung Galaxy SIII SPH-L710?


Recommended Posts

Okay, so I got my Galaxy SIII SPH-L710 rooted today and I am searching for a good Nexus/Vanilla Android rom for mine. I found SuperNexus, which is what I am looking for, but that wasn't for my device. Anyone know of any good roms that fit that description?

There are pretty much only 2 AOSP projects for the S3. CM and AOKP which is based off of CM code. Your only other choice is a Touchwiz ROM themed to look like AOSP, but it will still look like crap. Most themers don't know when to stop.

Dang. Oh well. Thanks for your help! I think I will go with this SlimRom 4.1.2 that looks like about what I am looking for. Thanks again, I appreciate your help!

There's SlimROMs, Carbon, PA, Illusion, and other smaller ones.  I'd say development for the S3 is awesome!  For the OP, I'd recomend latest CM10 nightlies, or SlimROM.  I also recommend Carbon but it's usually the most experimental imo.

Aren't they all based off of CM? Basically CM with different tweaks? I could be wrong, I have grown to old to flash all the different ones.

The CM Devs will write AOSP drivers for their respective devices and release them with CM builds. CM is an improved AOSP. You could build your own AOSP builds from Google's sources directly while using the CM dev's drivers but it would lack many features you take for granted in CM and TW.

Now that I have the new Nexus 7 2013, I don't really want pure Android on my GS3. But I am interested in rooms that others really like. Any suggestions?

I should have a nice clean S3 ROM out in a few weeks once I get the test device in that a member is letting me borrow.

Woohoo!!! You have no idea how happy that makes me! =)

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
