For this week’s Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900 ROM of the Week, check out Lidroid ROM by XDA user Lidroid.
Based on latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware, Lidroid ROM is another great ROM by a well-known ROM developer. I have been following XDA user Lidroid’s work for couple years now and although he has not gotten deeply into custom ROM development, his recent works with the Note 3 show that he is indeed doing more these days, which is just plain awesome.
Lidroid ROM comes with a custom 5×5 TouchWiz launcher that also comes with its own Theme Manager app, allowing you to easily change themes to over 20+ different custom themes plus you can also download free battery icons, icon packs, and weather widgets. That alone makes this ROM worthwhile installing for those of you into custom themes.
For customizing UI, Lidroid ROM ships with its own Lidroid Settings app that allows you to customize your status bar, choose Lidroid toggles (which I love over stock and Lidroid is one of the pioneers of toggles for Android custom development), enable status bar widgets, enable auto call-recording, and some more miscellaneous options.
Overall Lidroid ROM is one of those rare custom ROMs not enough people know about so if you are in town for some original Android development by great developer, definitely give this ROM a try this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
