CM9 and AOKP are now available for the Samsung Galaxy S3

Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300 CM9

Samsung Galaxy S3 is still very young, though there are already a lot of developers working on it. And now two of the most popular Android developers started working on custom ROMs for it. CyanogenMod9 and AOKP custom ROMs are already available for it, so we will soon definitely have a lot of firmwares to choose from.

So if you’re passionate about smartphones and own a Galaxy S3 i9300, then you can start rooting it and trying the new available custom ROMs. Unfortunately CM9 is still in a nightly phase, so we’ll probably have to wait a bit until they release a stable version, though it’s worth giving it a try.

You should know that you have to root your device in order to flash any custom ROM and this can be really dangerous, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. Rooting your Galaxy S3 could void your warranty and even brick it, so be very careful.

We already have guides to update your Samsung Galaxy S3 to CM9 and AOKP, so head over there and give it a try, but remember to follow the steps carefully.

Samsung Galaxy S3 is the most popular smartphone nowadays and also a best-seller. It features some impressive specs, like a 1.4Ghz quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 4.8-inch Super Amoled HD display, a 8MP primary camera and a 1.9MP frontal one. It comes in either Pebble Blue or Marble White and three internal storage capacities: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
