It’s been quite awhile since the last time we looked at HyperDrive ROM. I didn’t expect much to change since then but wow, HyperDrive ROM has to be the best TouchWiz custom ROM “right now” for the Verizon Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900V.
First thing I noticed with HyperDrive ROM is its blazing speed (even with all of my apps loaded as Verizon Note 3 is my daily driver) along with its abundance of endless features it provides on top of UI customization.
With the latest HyperDrive ROM, you will be able to “re-experience” TouchWiz, it’s like 2 times faster with many more options. There’s a ton to cover here but let me just point out some of the highlights of features I really liked.
HyperDriveTweaks app, which the ROM comes with, is the core of the ROM that allows you to tweak everything from your TouchWiz launcher (wallpaper scrolling, infinite scroll, change Swipe-up target from My Magazine to Google Now, disable double home press, enable auto call recording, customize Power Menu, and more), tweak your status bar (even change colors), enable softkeys, customize battery icon, choose from multiple lockscreens, and lots more. There’s even some advanced settings for those of you who want to tweak the performance of the phone further.
Overall, Scott (XDA user SBreen94) has done a terrific job of putting an excellent custom ROM with a ton of customization and speed you can actually feel. Definitely, we are gonna have to put this ROM first soon on our “Best Note 3 ROMs” list.
If you haven’t tried the latest version of HyperDrive ROM, definitely give it a twhirl this 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.
Q:My wifi is not connecting!
A: Download and Install BuildProp Editor app from Play Store then change the line “ro.securestorage.support” value from “true” to “false” then reboot. That will fix the wifi issues.
