Rooted and Flashed my Galaxy SIII with CyanogenMod


Recommended Posts

Hey there. I got a Galaxy SIII in June 2012 and the other day decided to root so I can get rid of ads and add a load of features to the phone in which I couldn't do before. I also I didn't want the stock firmware from Samsung as I was getting annoyed with the way it didn't feel like it should!


I must say I have been missing out! CyanogenMod is awesome, I would recommend anyone to do what I did to get the best out of their handset. It's so easy too.

There's so much more customisation options - it's how android was meant to be! It's now more like how the Nexus 7 looks and feels which is pure Jelly Bean.


Check out these links if you're interested in doing it:

Anyway how do you guys feel about of rooting and installing custom ROMs? What benefits have you noticed from doing so? Would be interesting to hear other people's stories.
