For this week’s Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900 ROM of the Week, check out latest Criskelo ROM.
Based on latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware, Criskelo ROM is one of my “go to” custom ROMs that feature mostly stock TouchWiz but with added performance and great battery life along with goodies you will probably appreciate.
This is a pretty solid and stable ROM that doesn’t feature every little customization out there but puts features you’d really want. Main features on the Criskelo KitKat ROM include Wanam Xposed app for UI customization/tweaking (see our Wanam Xposed guide here), modded TouchWiz launchers with choice of 4×5 and 5×5, volume boost mod, Galaxy S5 Settings UI, and Halaszk kernel (which allows overclocking up to 2.1Ghz).
You will also find AROMA graphical installer to customize your own apps and mods. Overall, Criskelo Team has been making some excellent custom ROMs for the last few years so if you are in store for something “solid”, definitely check out Criskelo ROM this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)
