For this week’s Galaxy Note 3 ROM of the Week (for SM-N9005, T-Mobile SM-N900T, and Canadian SM-N900W8), check out the latest BobCat ROM along with Compulsion kernel. (ROM by XDA user BobCatROM)
BobCat ROM has always been one of my favorite custom ROMs of all time (since I tried it with my Galaxy S4) and the latest version has been updated with latest Android 4.4.2 NF4 firmware, which has latest additions like Download Booster (yes works out of box).
*Note – This ROM is based on SM-N9005 firmware so for T-Mobile users, you will lose WiFi calling or any proprietary T-Mobile features.
Inside latest BobCat ROM, you will find its signature BobCat ROM theme along with custom BobCat icon, custom pulldown, and a modded 5×5 TouchWiz launcher. Performance on the launcher itself is pretty fast as it has always been.
The core of BobCat ROM is the BobCat ROM Control Settings where you can access 3rd-party apps like S-Pen Window app, Multi-Window Manager app, and even enable quad multi-window, which is great for serious multi-taskers.
Although there’s no UI customization MODs in the ROM itself, you can easily use Wanam Xposed app to do so on the ROM. Other cool mods include Viper4Android, Cambio DPI changer(run your phone in tablet or custom DPI mode), Sound Boost MOD (you can change easily on the go on top of AROMA installer), OG Battery MOD (lots of battery icons), and some more.
