Samsung Galaxy S III Gets Official AOKP and CyanogenMOD 9 Support
Here we are, back again with another story about the Samsung Galaxy S III. With a US launch imminent, this is one story that a whole grip of people here in the States will be quite happy to hear. With the development rate coming along at lightning speed for Sammy’s new flagship device, we’re proud to announce another major milestone in the process.
Two of the most popular ROM projects in the Android community, CyanogenMOD 9 and the Android Open Kang Project (AOKP), have officially added the Galaxy S III to their supported devices lists. Both of these amazing ROMs are highly respected in the scene and provide a slew of customization options for Android devices, as well as an Android Open Source Project-based (AOSP) experience — no painted-over OEM skins here, folks. Pure Android, at its finest.
To get started, you will need a rooted Galaxy S III and a decision as to which of the ROMs you want to flash. Do your research first, as both ROMs have minor differences and one may be more suitable for your personal preferences than the other.
Once you’ve made up your mind, head over to the AOKP thread on RootzWiki, or the CyanogenMOD 9 thread on XDA-Developers. You will find all the instructions, downloads and discussions you will need to get you on your way. I, for one, will most likely be trying them both out in the coming days, once I get my hands on the Galaxy S III this Thursday.
Now, if only Thursday could get here….
