Don’t know what custom ROMs can do for you? See What is a Galaxy Note 3 Custom ROM first.

To install a new custom ROM, you will need a rooted Galaxy Note 3 with CWM or TWRP recovery installed.

For this tutorial I will be using TWRP Recovery to install a new custom ROM.  To install using CWM Recovery, please see How to Install Custom ROM using CWM on Rooted Galaxy Note 3 instead.

Before we start, I highly recommend you make a backup ROM FIRST, see How to Backup/Restore ROM using TWRP on rooted Galaxy Note 3!

Step 1. Turn your Note 3 off.  Then hold down Volume Up, Center Home, and Power buttons together for about 3 seconds until you see “RECOVEYR BOOTING” at top-left of your screen.


Step 2. Once in TWRP recovery, choose “Wipe” to wipe data/factory reset.  This will erase all of your settings, apps, and app data.  This will not erase your personal files such as videos, photos, and other files stored in your internal storage or micro-SD card.

*Note – You may be able to skip this step if you are installing a custom ROM that’s based on the same firmware as one you are currently using but for most custom ROMs, I suggest you to do this step.



Step 3. Choose “Install”.


Browse your internal storage or your micro-SD card and find the ROM zip file you are going to install and install it.



Step 4. Once done installing the zip file you can reboot.  If you have more than one zip file to install, you can repeat Step 3.


Step 5. Once rebooted, you should find the welcome screen with your new custom ROM.  If you end up in a bootloop for some reason, you can try rebooting into TWRP recovery, wipe/format /system in advanced wipe menu, then re-install ROM from Step 2.  That will usually boot every ROM unless the ROM itself is bad (sometimes that happens).  If you cannot get out of bootloop for some reason, you can either install another custom ROM or restore your backed up ROM.
