Canadian S5 ROM for Galaxy Note 3!


For this week’s T-Mobile, Canadian, and SM-N9005 Note 3 ROM of the Week, check out the Canadian S5 ROM!

Ported straight from Canadian Galaxy S5, the Canadian S5 ROM brings you almost all S5 features onto your Note 3 such as Ultra Power Saving Mode, Download Booster, and even S5 camera.

The S5 camera works near flawless so you can get all the features on the Galaxy S5 with your Note 3 including Panorama, Virtual Tour, S5 camera menu, and more.  The only thing I found was that Selective Focus feature doesn’t work (it will hang your camera) and you get a minor annoying error message when you stop recording videos (but your video record just fine so…).

Battery life seems to drain a bit quickly with the stock kernel but you can easily fix this by using Compulsion kernel, which also gives you overclocking up to 2.65Ghz.  The ROM itself is super quick though, you do not need any overclocking unless you want to maximize your graphic-intensive games.

Overall, Canadian S5 ROM is nearly perfect, there are some bugs but for all the features you get on your Note 3, it’s definitely worth trying as it will literally turn your Note 3 into an S5 but with bigger battery and screen.  Yup, makes your Note 3 better than an S5.  So, definitely give this beasty custom ROM a try this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
