Download CyanogenMod 10 Android 4.2 Jelly Bean ROM for Samsung Galaxy S3

CyanogenMod ROM is my favourite Android ROM for HTC HD2. But I seldom use CM ROM since Samsung Galaxy S2 because CyanogenMod team does not have Samsung Exynos SoC source code. So you can’t enjoy all the features that can be found on Samsung own firmware. But what make me try CyanogenMod 10.1 Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean ROM for Samsung Galaxy S3? Force 4x MSAA feature (Enable 4x MSAA in OpenGL ES 2.0 apps) in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is the one. There is no Samsung firmware based on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean yet. So install CyanogenMod 10.1 ROM on Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the way to test 4x MSAA feature (Google Nexus 7 with Tegra 3 does not support MSAA). Besides, you can also try out other Android 4.2 Jelly Bean features too…

  1. some heads up:

    1. GPS not working properly. G Maps still give you exact direction, but it won’t lock your location. if you’re using sport tracker apps like Runtastic or Endomondo, it will report that you’ve run 1KM when you just run 300meters.

    2. bluetooth glitch. i use my SGSIII for music using bluetooth connection with my car. music play is intermittent when my phone in my pocket. when i bring out from my pocket put near my car stereo, it’s okay. not sure why, maybe distance issue.

    other than that, it works fine for me. do you face any issue Jayce?

  2. jayce,just want to ask if i can install stock firmware on my rooted s3? the way i’m using the revolution HD and i’m having problem with 3g/4g connection..what could be the possible problem?thanks

  3. after i installed it, if i want to change back to the official firmware, i just install through odin enough? still need any complicated step?

  4. i dont have CWM…where can i get it? and just now i factory reset by the android recovery system…can android recovery system install this firmware?
