Fre3 Hybrid ROM for Sprint Galaxy Note 3! [2.726Ghz OC]

fre3-hybrid-rom-sprint-galaxynote3

For this week’s Sprint Galaxy Note 3 ROM of the Week, check out Fre3 hybrid ROM by XDA user Freeza (an excellent developer btw).

Based on latest Android 4.4.2 NC5 Sprint firmware, Fre3 Hybrid ROM is a TouchWiz-based ROM with one goal in mind, make it TouchWiz-less without losing core Samsung TouchWiz features like S-Pen, Air View, etc…etc…

First, Fre3 ROM has no TouchWiz launcher but Nova launcher installed out of the box (which is my favorite launcher btw).  Second, all Sprint bloatware have been removed from the ROM along with other apps that can be re-installed via Play Store.

Third, Fre3 ROM ships with its own custom BeastMode kernel that has been tweaked to give you much better performance/battery life over stock firmware.  And add to the fact that you can also easily overclock to 2.726Ghz to really get the most of out of your Note 3 for hard-core gamers out there.  (You can use Trickster Mod app on Play Store to overclock, see video overview on how to overclock.)

Overall, Fre3 Hybrid ROM actually keeps most of your core Samsung features while getting rid of everything you don’t need (bloatware).  You can expect some serious performance/battery life out of this beast so give it a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!

    Hey Max,

    I came to this rom from C Rom which I really loved but I need my GPS. One of the features I missed most from C Rom is the Holo Notifications that displayed from the top. Is there a way to add that feature to this Rom.

  11. Jeff says:

        You ROCK ZedoMAX!! Every tutorial I follow from you works FLAWLESSLY — Thanks!
        I Towelrooted my Sprint Note3 4.4.2 NC5 with no problems (following ur method), but how can I get ClockworkMod onto my phone so I can flash this rom? (I towelrooted bc I didn’t feel like using the computer, but was that a mistake? lol)

    Hi. Thank you for the rom and instructions. My first rom flashed. I have one problem though. The reason I rooted was too get the free wifi hotspot tethering. I have a sprint note 3 nc5. The rom installed well. I didn’t do a factory restore because I didn’t want to go through the hassle of restoring everything and reapplying my passwords and all. But the wifi hotspot still shows a message saying it will redirect me to sprints thing where I would have to pay for it. I was under the understanding that if I flash a rom I would get it for free. Please help.

    • Max Lee says:

      It should work if you install after doing a factory reset.

      • Pavan says:

        Thank you Max. It works now and I have tethered it to my ipad. After 5 min of streaming a video it stops. Do I need to download something else or did I do something else? Thanks.

    How can I under clock this room for better battery life?

  16. Rich says:

    After flashing this ROM I can no longer do multimedia messaging. Any ideas?

  17. Daniel Timberwolf says:

    I need help urgently please… I used TWRP to wipe then flash this rom, and I ended up stuck with a bootloop that reads “KERNEL IS NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING/Set warranty bit: kernel”
    I have tried restoring my nandroid backup but that fails as well. I originally had the rooted 4.3 touchwiz stock rom.
    Please i require assistance ASAP.

    I have installed this rom about 3 times but I always have the same problem that when I receive a new email I will click on it and I always get the same message which says “unfortunately email has stopped working” what could be the problem?

    • Poet says:

      Don’t open the email through the pop up, as you’ll get the error message instead go through the email app instead.
      Hopefully this helps.
