HyperDrive KitKat ROM for Verizon Galaxy Note 3!


For this week’s Verizon Galaxy Note 3 ROM of the Week, check out the latest HyperDrive KitKat ROM by XDA user Sbreen94.

Based on latest Verizon Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware, HyperDrive ROM is back better than ever, faster than ever with some great customization you are used to.  Personally, I have been using the stock Android 4.4.2 KitKat for last week or so and have found it very laggy and sometimes my WiFi being super slow.  I have been regretting for upgrading to KitKat and finally my phone is running better after installing HyperDrive ROM.

With HyperDrive KitKat ROM, you will be able to experience all the goodness of KitKat without Samsung lag and with a ton of customization.  Off the bat, HyperDrive KitKat ROM brings you performance improvements you will notice as soon as it boots up.    Unlike stock KitKat firmware, HyperDrive ROM gives you great performance with your TouchWiz launcher, another reason why you don’t even need a 3rd-party launcher like Nova (my favorite) as it’s definitely at least twice faster than stock.

On top of that, you get a nicely modded launcher that allows you to launch your favorite shortcuts when you swipe up or swipe all the way to the left, which is becoming a popular MOD among custom ROMs these days.  Native wifi-tether hotspot is working out of the box also.

And yes, the full HyperDrive Tweaks app is included, which allows you to customize your TouchWiz launcher, enable all apps for multi-window/s-pen window, enable auto call-recording, add Torch/Screenshot to Power menu, customize status bar/battery, change colors of your UI, enable PIE Control, tweak your lockscreen, and lots more advanced options for fully tweaking your Note 3 UI just the way you want it.

Want some Galaxy S5 apps? You also got that, HyperDrive KitKat ROM ships with S5 launcher, Accuweather widget, and S5 apps like S-Health, Optical Reader, Kids Mode, Magnifier, My Files, S-Finder, S-Planner, S-Note, headphone shortcuts, Watch-On, and some more.  You will get S5 Settings UI along with Note 3 Settings UI.

Wait! That’s not all, HyperDrive ROM also ships with 21 different themes you can easily switch by tapping Menu->Set Theme.  Certainly, you will never get tired of your Note 3 UI as you will be able to change themes on the go when you get tired of it.

There’s probably even more features I forgot to list here but I will let you find some more cool features on this ROM so definitely give HyperDrive KitKat ROM a test drive over the week(end) and do let me know what you think!  But definitely, performance is a beast on HyperDrive ROM plus you will get customization that work flawless out of the box.

IMPORTANT: You must have upgraded your bootloader to Android 4.4.2 KitKat first in order to install this ROM, if you have not, please follow How to Upgrade to Android 4.4.2 Firmware With Root on Verizon Note 3! first!

To install, reboot into recovery, make backup ROM, wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, and reboot. I do recommend using your Stock ROM slot for running this ROM so you can take full use of your 32GB internal storage space.  See How to Install ROM on Note 3 using SafeStrap first if this is your first time.
