C-ROM + Lean Kernel for Galaxy Note 3!


For this week’s Note 3 ROM of the Week, check out C-ROM along with Lean Kernel, available for T-Mobile, Sprint, Canadian, and SM-N9005.

UPDATE: There’s is a newer version, please CLICK HERE to see it instead of this!!!

Based on latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat, C-ROM is an AOSP ROM (What is AOSP?) that brings you a ton of customization, On-The-Go-Mode, and more features than you can expect.  Couple the ROM with Lean Kernel for some awesome 2.726Ghz overclocking and excellent battery life.

What’s cool about C-ROM?

I have been personally running C-ROM on many of my other Android smartphones and this is one ROM that brings many of the favorite features from other AOSP ROMs.  Just think of it as a melting pot of all AOSP ROMs with every feature you can think of baked in.

Inside C-ROM customization settings, you will find many goodies like PIE Controls, HALO, Appbar, Gesture Anywhere, Driving Mode, OmniSwitch, Active Display, custom animation, LCD Density changer and lots more.  Also On-The-Go-Mode is available for those of you who commute often in highly-trafficked areas like New York City.

Need shortcuts?  The C-ROM offers high level of shortcuts including PIE Controls, Appbar, OmniSwitch, Navigation bar, 8-slider targets for Lockreen, and more.

With the latest Google Camera, you will also be able to enjoy the latest and best of Google’s camera features like PhotoSphere and Panorama working flawless out of the box.

Overall, C-ROM is definitely a great custom ROM you will be able to fully customize your phone just the way you want it so give it a test drive over the week(end) and do let me know what you think!
