    That's awesome. And I agree, it's an amazing ROM. We're really lucky to have it on the GS3. I just couldn't keep it off the list.

    The InspireOS ROM is out of beta. It's an interesting ROM. It is iOS and Paranoid Android inspired.

    Paranoid Android Legacy is doing some really interesting things with their 4.5 Beta builds. They've incorporated the Android L stack recent apps. Each Beta build is adding more polish. They're working on something called they Dynamic Status Bar. It'll change colors according to what app you're using.

    I'm on the hunt for new Dirty Unicorns builds. The last official build was 8/15. What I understand, they're currently on the 7.9 build.

    Looks like SOKP has pulled the plug. Which is fine, as i'm still on Dirty Unicorns

    I finally got around to deleting SOKP from the list. Looks like the devs scrapped the project. It was a very feature packed ROM but didn't get updates often. It's always unfortunate to see a ROM go.

    I did find a brand new ROM though. It's called BrokenOS. It has quite a few features and seemed pretty stable. It's a little themed, but nothing that's overbearing. It doesn't have a Theme Engine integrated into it. But if that's something that you like, you can use Xposed Frameworks with the HKThemeManager module and use your CM11 themes through that.

    It looks like d2lte is no longer an officially maintained device with Dirty Unicorns again. There hasn't been an official build in just about a month. But I have found a couple recent unofficial 7.9 builds. I included them in the list under Unofficial Builds. I'm currently running the 9/5 7.9 build and I have to say, it's the most stable Dirty Unicorns build I've ever used. I highly suggest using either of the builds I just added.

    Been using WiDi, but i hust switched to data to try. No issues, just updated 2 apps over data. Also no issues sending/receiving texts. Data dropped once, but i'm out in the country, which it can be hit or miss at times.

    I had to revert back to the 9/5 build. Nothing was working besides Wi-Fi and texting with the 9/11 build for me.

    One thing i really love with this ROM is being able to use Xiper4android. I couldn't get it woyking on official build. Also seems smoother and zippier.

    Tried data again with no issues. Did you dirty flash or fresh install? Mine was a fresh install. Not sure if that would make a difference or not. I usually do fresh installs.

    I dirty flashed it at first. Then, I tried a clean flash. Same result. A couple others on Google+ said they were having problems too. I'm glad it's working for you. He actually just released a 9/13 build. So hopefully, it'll work.

    If you're using a ROM and new build comes out, you can just dirty flash on top of the old build. You don't need to reset and flash the new build. Just saying if you didn't know. If you did, awesome.

    Yeah, i usually do clean install due to some MODs i use. I use Niteox4 but have to manually install it. For some reason, flashing it causes me to loose root. But it's one of the best MODs of used. Great RAM management.

    Also, before flashing, i unzip ROM and MOD. I take out wallpapers, add cLock and add BlackedOut versions of some apps. Usually easier for me on clean install. I may go back to dirty flashing though with the frequent updates, lol.

    For those who are Dirty Unicorns fans, Joe Carbone does update his unofficial 7.9 builds pretty frequently. The builds can be found in his Google+ page. The link to it is in the Unofficial Builds section. Dirty Unicorns is one of my favorite ROMs, if not my favorite. His builds are the most stable Dirty Unicorns builds I've ever used, and I've been using Dirty Unicorns since the Android 4.4.2 builds. Go check it out.

    I also did some maintenance to the list. The Team OSE and Merkmod ROMs are no longer. So, I deleted them from the list. There is a newer CandyKat ROM d2lte build if you want to check it out. Besides that, everything should be good. Have fun.

    You know, I do too. His Dirty Unicorns builds are the most stable and smoothest Dirty Unicorns builds I've used. I've used a lot of them, both official and unofficial. And this is going back to Android 4.4.2. I might just have to say, it is my favorite ROM.

    C-RoM was another amazing ROM, but they stopped developing d2lte builds. That did do one d2lte 4.4.4 build but Bluetooth doesn't work, which is a bummer.

    AICP is another great, multi-feature ROM. Is up there in my list also. Gummy is up there too. I really like how the dark theme is actually black and cyan, not just turning everything black.

    If interested, here's a link to my Xda thread. I make custom splash screen images. Due to my eyesight, i can't convert to flashable because the one-click ptogram is for the computer and i can't see well enough for the computer. But there's a link on my thread for the one-click converter.

    I revamped the list quite a bit. I took out some of the ROMs and unofficial builds that no longer existed or haven't had development in at least a couple months. I also decided to add the Google+ Community Pages for each ROM. Google+ allows for more interaction with the devs of each ROM and it's easier to see if there are any updates. I posted a new link for Android 4.4.4 GAPPS. The link I had no longer existed. So, I posted the link for the Paranoid Android GAPPS which do receive updates periodically. And finally, I added a new section for AOSP d2lte kernels and added a few. For those who don't know, kernels are the power source of your phone. You can overclock and underclock as well as change the frequency, governors, schedulers, etc. I'd suggest downloading a kernel tweaker from the Play Store. I use Trickster MOD. That way, you can control the settings of each kernel to your liking.

    For fans of Dirty Unicorns, there hasn't been an Official build in a month and a half. But Joe Carbone has been making Unofficial DU d2lte builds and updating his builds frequently. Instead of posting each build as they come, I have the link to his Google+ page under the Unofficial Builds section of the list. Check the Google+ page for further updates.

    In the last couple days, 3 new unofficial d2lte builds came out. Joe Carbone made an unofficial Dirty Unicorns d2lte 8.0 build. It can be found in his Google+ page under the Unofficial Builds section of the list. Also, a DU developer named Alex Cruz released a DU 8.0 d2lte test build. It's also under the Unoofficial Builds section in the list. And finally, a new unofficial LiquidSmooth d2lte build. If you want to use that build, you must do a clean flash before installing it because of how the developer compiled it. It's also in the Unofficial Builds section.

    I haven't checked this site in years and I just happened to see it in the search results for d2lte. I just wanted to say thank you for compiling this list. I'm still a flashaholic even with the support fading for this device (I don't fully see the need to upgrade just yet, soon but not yet). It's nice to have a decent list again especially since xda has gone pretty silent if you don't want a TW based built.

    I'm the same way. I don't feel the need to upgrade my phone just yet. By today's standards, the GS3 is still a very good phone. It beats out many of the mid-range phones in terms of specs and performance. The only reason I might upgrade is for a 1080p display. But with a screen that's around 5", there's really not much of a difference between 720p and 1080p. With all these ROMs still available, I'm sticking with it. It'll be interesting to see what ROMs will be avaiable when Android L comes along. Cyanogenmod kind of backhandedly said that GS3 will still be a maintained device. They did say that the Galaxy Nexus will lose support.

    My phone still runs great. It can do everything every other Android phone can do. One thing I'd suggest you get into is Xposed Frameworks. It can add so many mods to your phone. So yeah, I'm sticking with the GS3.

    I added a couple unofficial builds to the list. I hate adding a build without crediting the developer, but I forgot who made it. He basically did a one time only unofficial Madhi ROM d2lte build about a month ago. I forgot until now to add it to the list. I also added the link to the Mahdi ROM Google+ Community Page for more info about the ROM. The link to the build is under the Unofficial Builds section of the list.

    Alex Cruz made another Dirty Unicorns d2lte test build a couple days ago. This time, he incorporated the OmniROM tinted status/navigation bar feature. For those who don't know, the tinted status/navigation bar feature changes the color of the status/navigation bar with each app you are using. I'm currently using this build. It works great and is very stable. The link is in the Unofficial Builds section of the list.

    I just found out about an app called ROM Settings Backup. It's currently in beta. It only works with AOSP ROMs. What it does is backup all of your chosen settings in whatever ROM you are using. If you ever need to wipe data/clean flash a new build of the same ROM, download the app and use it to restore your settings. Every setting/feature you have chosen will be restored. I highly, highly suggest installing the app. I used it with the 2 latest Dirty Unicorns builds and it actually works. I added the Play Store link to the app below the AOSP d2lte Kernels section. Again, I highly suggest installing the app. It'll make flashing ROMs so much easier.

    My only reason to upgrade is T-Mobiles new 700a spectrum, out side of that I don't have an interest in a bigger phone which most are now. Though the z3 compact looks interesting.

    I do have 2 annoying issues with my s3, my battery is gone again so I need to get another one. And I keep getting this odd screen glitches on non tw roms. Its aggravating,

    If you're having battery issues, you can try flashing kernels to see what the problem is. I have a few in the list. You can also download a kernel tweaker such as Trickster MOD and underclock your phone to help save juice. Greenify or Juice Defender are good apps to help with battery drain also. Greenify helps hibernate apps so they won't run in the background. Apps such as Facebook are huge battery drains. With Juice Defender, you can control which apps connect to data/wifi at which times. You can also switch data/wifi off when the screen is off. Clean Master is another good.app. It lets you know if there's an app that's sucking up too much CPU or causing your phone to overheat. It's also a good app to keep junk off your phone.

    I don't know what would be causing the screen glitches though. That does sound annoying. What does it exactly do?

    Alright, have yet another unofficial Dirty Unicorns d2lte build for you. Alex Cruz just released one today. Currently running it and it's very smooth and stable. He corrected some issues with the tinted status/navigation bar. The status bar icons, namely the battery and clock icons, are more responsive and turn black with lighter colors instead of staying white. I'd definitely suggest trying the build out. It's the 10/9 8.0 build in the Unofficial Builds section.

    Don't let the words 'unofficial' and 'test' throw you off. They're just labels. It doesn't mean that the ROM builds will be any less stable than the 'official' builds. And thankfully, with Alex Cruz and Joe Carbone, they update their builds frequently in case of a bug or issue.

    And don't forget about the ROM Settings Backup app. The Play Store link is under the the AOSP d2lte Kernels section. It's a must have if you're using an AOSP based ROM.
