For those of you who have a Galaxy Note 3 but don’t want to deal with Note 7’s blowing up features, you may be in luck as there’s a Note 7 ROM that you can install that gives you all the software features of a real Note 7.
Now, this will require you to root your Galaxy Note 3 and also install a custom ROM called DarkLord ROM. For those of you not rooted yet, simply follow our root instructions over at GalaxyNote3Root.com to root your phone then install the ROM. We will have full ROM installation instructions at the end of this video.
For those of you having trouble converting your Galaxy Note 3 into a full-fledge Avengers S7 Edge, it’s actually easy to do, you may have to erase files under “trialjson” directory while installing the Avengers theme.
The Avenegers themes are fully compatible with DarkWolf ROM for the Note 3 (or probably any other S7 Edge port ROM) and if you add some Avengers boot animations to go with it, you will have a fully-converted Avengers Edition Galaxy S7 Edge. Performance is excellent along with Screen Off Memo and full set of features from Note 5. This is a really S7 Edge/Note 5 hybrid ROM that will give your Note 3 new life along with support for Always-On-Screen(which is a bit dim but still works).
If you are jealous of your friends who have recently bought a brand, new Galaxy S7 Edge, you don’t have to be anymore as there’s a way to convert your Galaxy Note 3 into S7 Edge and also have Note 5 features.
Samsung has also stopped supporting Note 3 and since there’s no official TouchWiz Marshmallow updates (yet), this will also give you the latest Android 6.0.1 running on your Note 3.
For those of you who want to get ahead with Android operating system on your Galaxy Note 3, you need to check out the latest Resurrection Remix ROM with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Based on latest Android 6.0.1, Resurrection Remix ROM brings you the best of CM13 and customization. In fact, this is the BEST Android Marshmallow custom ROM I have tried so far.
For those of you looking for Android 6.0 Marshmallow and root for your Galaxy Note 3, we finally have a beta version of CM13!
Now, this is still WIP (Work in Progress) as almost everything is working except phone calls, the ROM does NOT recognize SIM cards. But if you want to try all of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow features, you can easily make a backup ROM of your current ROM, try out the ROM, then revert back to your working ROM.
Can’t afford a Note 5? Perhaps you don’t like the fact that Note 5 no longer has microSD slot and removable battery?
No worries, you can easily convert your Galaxy Note 3 into a Note 5 using the DarkLord N5 ROM.
Based on latest Android 5.1.1 Note 5 firmware, the DarkLord N5 ROM brings you all the features of Note 5 plus much much more. Inside, you will find everything you can do on the Note 5 including themes, settings, UI, etc…etc… For S-Pen, you will be able to enjoy all of the new Note 5 features along with screen-off memo that works flawless. Essentially, the DarkLord N5 ROM makes your Note 3 better than Note 5 with support for IR blaster, multi-window for any apps, People Edge/App Edge from S6 Edge Plus, and more.
Note 5 was released not too long ago and we are starting to see some of the new Note 5 features rolling into Note 3 custom ROMs. While the Note 5 Air Command still needs some time to port over to Note 3, you can still enjoy many of the new Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus features through the Norma ROM.
For this week’s ROM of the Week, check out Tesla ROM for Galaxy Note 3.
Based on Android 5.1.1 AOSP (What is AOSP?), Tesla ROM by Team Validus brings you years of experience and solid open source development to their latest Tesla ROM. Tesla ROM shares a lot of roots with Slim ROMs and it comes with stuff like Slim launcher (which I really love) along with full floating multi-window support (enable Slim Recents in Settings).
If you want to keep your root and have cool features like unlocked hotspot/call recording, you may want to install the latest Jasmine Lollipop ROM. For those of you coming from KitKat ROM with root, this is the best route so you don’t lose root permanently along with your unlocked WiFi hotspot.
