Yesterday, we took submissions for Custom ROM Friday and got an overwhelming response to check out SynergyROM for the Galaxy S3. SynergyROM brings your basic Galaxy S3 skin look, but with lots of performance tweaks and optimizations such as re-sizable floating windows, Photo Sphere abilities, and other goodies. 

A team of developers have worked the ROM to be compatible with Galaxy S3 devices on all four major carriers, so there’s no discrimination going on here. Naturally, if you are interested in flashing any ROM, you will need to be running a custom recovery on your device. Below, we have taken a few of the major highlights of SynergyROM and listed them below.


  • Jelly Bean 4.1.2
  • Fully Deodexed, Zipaligned, Busybox, Superuser, Debloated
  • Multiwindow with free-floating windows, created exclusively by Team Synergy!
  • Team Synergy’s custom init.d scripts for insane performance
  • Blocked Samsung’s “root checker” and screenlogger services
  • 23 notification toggles
  • 4-in-1 reboot menu
  • Fully rotating homescreens
  • Wifi Tether app working right out of the box
  • Customized mounting scripts (see Q&A)
  • Custom boot animation support
  • 4G and WiFi speed tweaks
  • Verizon OTAs blocked
  • Customized SystemUI interface
  • Tons more tweaks and enhancements
