For this week’s Galaxy Note 3 ROM of the week, check out the latest BobCat KitKat ROM, available for the international SM-N9005, T-mobile Note 3 SM-N900T, and Canadian SM-N900W8.
Based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat SM-N9005 firmware, BobCat ROM brings you a ton of customization through its AROMA graphical installer and BobCat ROM Control Settings. BobCat ROMs comes optimized for maximum performance, no KNOX, and much better battery life over stock firmwares.
The AROMA installer on BobCat ROM is very detailed, allowing you to select virtually every app installed on your Note 3 and also you have multiple theme settings for your UI, icons, keyboard, and much much more. Best of all, you can easily re-run the AROMA installer after installing ROM to make any changes to your ROM.
My favorite is also custom Dropdown images; you can choose from 7 different dropdown images. For TouchWiz launcher, you have option of going with a large 5×6 launcher, which is just perfect for Note 3’s screen size. Once booted, you will also find a plethora of customization, options, and apps to enhance your Note 3 experience including Multi-Window Manager app, Pen Window Manager app, Viper4Android, Xposed App Settings, PIE Control, and too many damn features to list here (you will have to try ’em all yourself).
Overall, if you want one killer custom ROM with all of the possible features/customization you can think of, you cannot go wrong with BobCat ROM. So, if you have SM-N9005 or T-Mobile/Canadian Note 3, definitely give this ROM a test over the week(end) and do let me know how much you like it.
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot. (If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.) See How to Install ROM on Note 3 first if this is your first time.
