custom rom for s3

Grant WGrant W Posts: 24FreedomPop Newbie
Hi, really like the s3 phone I got, but don't like samsung os (or not used to :) ). Does anyone know if I can put a custom rom on it? If so, would you please recommend some ROM's and/or share any tutorial or links?

Thanks a lot!

    You will loose all warranty stuff from FP. Frequent ROMS do not work with FP apps and so can be frustrating. A few do after a bunch of adjusting. If you're a sharp person who understands ROM's and VoIP technology, then have at it. Then you will be the expert to get yourself out of any jams. Discussions of ROMs is discouraged here, but via PM with knowledgeable people might get you more info.
    PS: I've not messed with any ROMs yet.

    Stick with FP ROM. In TIPS category are many useful tips on stretching the battery life for longer hours. Some may make a difference to you others will be hard to notice. Together is best in total help.

    Nope. Not working. Always get "The number you have reached is not in service. This is a recording".

    I got the MSL code and reset. Also did all the update, PRL, profile etc ... Still not wokring. No incoming calls. No messages. :(

    @Grant W I replied to your other thread. As for your ROM issue, I actually have a copy of the SIII ROM if worse comes to worst however I wouldn't recommend flashing anything.

    Thanks njfulwider5 and Ali. I replied in my other thread for incoming call issue. As for ROM, I just have two concerns:

    1. my battery can't last through the day, have to charge at noon. I heard custom rom can help the battery.
    2. want to use pbxes for my google voice sip calls, and I heard ICS integrated dialer can handle SIP calls with good quality. just want to give it a try before i install other sip clients.

    Thanks for all your info, I will stay with FP rom, and do more testing on the battery.

    Also, I noticed while in call, if i turn on speaker, the volume buttons will control Bluetooth sound, not the speaker. I have to go to that tools button to change speaker volume. Is that a bug? looks strange to me.

    Ali, would you please send me the SIII rom? I will send a message to you. Thanks.

    I seem to have messed up my Rom by installing an updated one. It kept telling me to update, but always gave me an error, so I found the latest version of Philz Touch 6 and updated and my phone bricked. I bought a jig from ebay and it arrives today, so once I get it I can unbrick my phone and it will show me the download screen, which I think means I have to go into Odin and plug my phone in my computer and install the correct rom, but I can't find it. Does anyone know where I can download the Samsung Galaxy SIII rom so I can use my phone again?
