For this week’s Sprint Note 3 ROM of the week, check out KitKatKiller ROM by XDA user JoshBeach!
Based on latest Sprint Android 4.4.2 NC5 firmware, KitKatKiller ROM brings you a killer
blue custom theme along with 6 additional colors you can choose from for your icons.
You will find a blazing-fast S5 TouchWiz launcher that’s so fast you won’t believe it’s TouchWiz! KitkatKiller ROM also comes with BeastMod kernel which allows you to overclock up to 2.726Ghz for those of you hard-core gamers who want to get your Note 3 running faster than a Galaxy S5.
Inside KitKatKiller ROM, you will find KitKatKiller ROM Settings that will allow you to tweak your status bar and includes useful apps like CPU Voltage Scaler, CPU Sleeper, Cache Cleaner, Battery Calibration, Call Recorder, PRL Writer, Battery Bar, Pen Window Manager, LED Blink Customizer, and some more.
Performance is excellent on the KitKatKiller ROM along with improved battery life over stock as all Sprint bloatware have been removed along with system tweak for faster/longer phone. Wifi Hotspot is unlocked so you can tether your laptop to Sprint 4G LTE all day long and other useful tweaks include ability to add up to 999 contacts, use camera while in a call, audio sound in-call boost, loud sound mod for speaker, custom drop down, and even YouTube app with download option.
There may also be some secret features I may have skipped so definitely give this killer custom ROM a try and let me know if you find all of the easter eggs. Overall, it’s an excellent ROM you will definitely drool over stock firmware.
To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, 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.)
