Ever since the day of BBQ event held in Texas, one of the most attractive projects announced was OmniROM based on Android Open Source Project (AOSP). This tutorial guides you to install OmniROM on Samsung Galaxy S3, which is an experimental build. OmniROM has added more devices to their compatible list and if you own a Galaxy S3, why wait more? Get OmniROM to your S3 I9300 by following this simple tutorial.
OmniROM’s debut was awesome as they got worldwide exposure through the last Android event. The CyanogenMod team has to be more vigilant as they rule the current custom ROM market. However, OmniROM beats CyanogenMod in various fields. Being a CM developer, it’s quite hard to say. But as far as my blogging profession is concerned, I can’t bury the truth (Really? ).
Main Features of OmniROM
¤ Multi-window and Multi-work station.
¤ Roadrunner Mode.
¤ Flippable Quick Settings
¤ Integrated Performance Control
¤ Flippable Quick Settings
¤ Daydream enhancements (Better than in CM)
¤ 3D depth Phase Beam (With color effect option)
