For this week’s Verizon Galaxy Note 3 ROM of the week, check out the latest Jasmine ROM by XDA user Hsbadr. The last time we checked it out it was a really cool ROM but I did encounter some battery problems as it was draining battery much faster than normal.
Well, that issue has been fixed in the latest build and this is probably the best ROM to flash if you want to get S5 features like Download Booster and Ultra Power Saving mode. Of course, Verizon should be updating to Lollipop anytime soon but while you wait, you can enjoy the newer Sammy features by flashing the Jasmine ROM.
Although no overclocking available thanks to locked bootloaders on the Verizon Note 3, Jasmine ROM also comes with optimized performance, meaning you get a super-fast, lagfree TouchWiz launcher along with excellent overall performance. And like I said, battery life is now very good so you will get the same or better life than stock firmware. I got over 41,000 on Antutu, that’s a whopping 5000-6000 more points than on a Note 3 stock firmware.
Other notable features include native call recording,unlocked WiFi hotspot, Android 5.0 Lollipop keyboard, Xposed installer & modules, and some more. My favorite feature is the quad multi-window, you can easily multi-task to the fullest on this ROM.
Overall, if you want to run a fast, lagfree ROM with S5 features, give the latest Jasmine ROM a go and do let me know what you think!
