The best thing about the Android OS is that it’s open source, which allows developers to release different ROMs for customizing various devices. If you’re bored with your stock firmware, you can switch up things with the new Android Revolution HD 15.0 ROM. XDA Developers’ member mike1986 is the developer behind this ROM.
This is a ROM that offers users speed, smoothness, and unparalleled stability. It is based on Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean with the official Samsung firmware I9300XXDLJ5. It brings a stock kernel, but users are free to choose the Perseus custom kernel in the AROMA installer.
The instructions are meant to be used on the GT-i9300 model of Samsung Galaxy S3. It may damage other models if they’re applied on them. You should read each and every instruction carefully before performing the actual process. The battery of your phone should be charged to at least 80% as well. It’s also recommended that you create a backup of all the important files. You follow this guide at your own risk. We don’t take responsibility for any damages if something goes wrong with the device after performing these steps.
