That looks awesome! However, it is saying that for some SGS3's it burns the battery down inanely fast :/

+rep for the recommendation

If anyone has other ideas feel free to share!

I always have LightFlow on 24/7. I also leave WiFi and GPS on 24/7 and my battery lasts me all day and I still have a good chunk to spare by the end of it. I'd give it a try, there is a free version for a reason tongue.gif

Also, if you do try it.. make sure you enable the S3 specific settings in the settings section of the app. If you use it for SMS/whatever you might want to disable any LED notifications for them and just let LightFlow do it all. If you find it uses too much battery I'm sure there is some alternatives..

I haven't heard of anything, but I wouldn't doubt there being some. The common recommendation around XDA seems to be LightFlow.

I'm not sure. I think you might just have to go through them and kind of learn what needs to be set tongue.gif Most of them have a decent description that gives you a clue about what it does, though.

Hello I just picked up an S3 and I love it!!

A few questions:

I have rooted my phone within the first 10-15 minutes of getting it, where do I find custom roms? (good ones or any in general)

Do custom roms update or do I have to install a new one once they have an update?

If I have a custom rom and jellybean comes out, how will that affect me when updating to jellybean? Or updating to any android update as a matter of fact?

How do I install the roms once I downloaded them? Can I do it on a mac?

Thank you in advance!!

I would suggested using XDA for any of your ROM needs. You will need to flash the updated ROM if an update comes out for it. While on a custom ROM your android generally shouldn't update itself, but depends on the ROM.. there are jellybean ones out already so you can just flash a jellybean ROM and be on your way. EDIT: Let me clarify further. Basically, when a update comes out there is a 'code' associated with it. So when that update gets released ROM developers will create new ROMs based on that 'code'. So to speak anyway.

I suggest ParanoidAndroid for a jellybean ROM.

You'll find instructions on XDA. I believe you can do it on a MAC but it is a PIA from what I've heard.. If you have trouble finding the specific section for your phone tell me which carrier you have and I'll link you where you need to be.

wow thank you! so much help..

I have at&t. (thank you for being so helpful)

also, so what if i want to get a different custom rom? do i have to unflash the one i have? (i hope i'm making sense).

by the way i'm new to android so you can understand how much i appreciate the help!

since you are going to link me directing me to right section for custom roms, can you suggest a kernel for me as well? (I'm not FULLY aware of what kernel does or if you can have a custom rom and a kernel at the same time but i'm currently researching)
