    Hey rong, you're one step ahead of me again. Haha. Let's see if i'm going to do this right. Get the files from xda, and put them on the sd card at the root. Open AutoRec, and go to Recovery Mode. Tap on Install and tap on new rom zip. after installed, reboot and done. How do i put my S2 apps on to the S3, without adding other b.s? What about Gapps? If you've got an easier way, please help me out. Thanks.

    I downloaded the rom to my phones download folder, backed up messages and phone log, rebooted into recovery, created a nandroid, factory reset, wiped dalvik and cache, install rom.

    No GAPPS required, it's like one of those all in one stock roms the S3 had. Just make sure to select the att variant. I also installed xposed and gravity box

    Running real sweet. Some nice improvements over the G2. My favorite is QuickBoot. I wonder if we still need AutoRec?

    I deleted autorec off of my phone 2 days ago. I haven't needed it since I installed TWRP.

    I like this ROM!

    Space on the internal sd is 17.50gbs., as opposed to 18.50 when phone is just rooted and running stock. This is with the addition of some apps that i needed. Battery life is still fantastic!! You're right, why trade up to the G3 when i'm running it right now. Only thing i can't find is the "circle" weather & battery app for the lockscreen.

    Didn't look at the space but love this ROM better than stock. I'll keep it awhile. I like the look of of the G3 OS better than the G2 and the stock messaging as well. Can't see me flashing any AOSP or AOKP Rom. They always have some type of glitch plus not really a huge fan of them after trying so many with the S3

    Battery life is as good as I had with stock.

    Anyone have this on the Verizon version? I want to say I read something about having to flash a different radio in conjunction with flashing the ROM.

    I have it. It works fine from the start. Only issue so far is you can only send MMS with hangouts app.

    I did flash it and that's not a big deal to me since I have hangouts as my default messaging app anyway.

    The only thing I'm not liking is a very tiny delay between pressing the home button and going to the home screen!

    I've been noticing some problems with the G3 rom from Cloudyfa. I'm using the Optimus rom, and it's all good. I have the 1.0, but just downloaded the 1.1. I'll install it tomorrow.

    Just switched to Cloudy a few hours ago. Man the g3 Rom seems to sip less battery than the Mahdi 4.4.4 nexus like Rom...

    I've got the new Optimus G3 V1.1 up and running, and so far there's no problems. It's amazing to me how these roms just sip battery juice. How's that cloudyfa rom working? Still reading about some problems, in the xda forums.

    I'm not really noticing anything really. Knock code works with the screen off and is really awesome. Was getting a days roaming thing but switched my mobile mode to CDMA/LTE and haven't seen it since. Works great to me

    O.K. If your phone is Sprint or Verizon, then CDMA/LTE is where you should be.

    So is the stock messaging functional on the Optimus G3 rom? Can you send and receive MMS?

    Yes it is. If you install the rom, go right to the 1.1, it has a few more goodies in it. Looks just like the G3.

    Great thanks...I'm going to try that one out. Since my Lg g2 is already rooted all I need to do is download the rom, boot into TWRP and install correct? I'm kind of new at altering my phone

    TWRP will give you the option to do a wipe first. Do it, and then proceed like you were going to. Also, make a back-up first, just in case. Good luck. I think that you'll like it a lot.
