You recommend stock Samsung recovery?
Hi I have a Samsung s3 but have no idea how to Set it to recovery, or anything else. Tried downloading the Lollipop update but the thread is retired? I just want to update so i can use the slo mo feature on the camera. Any help would be great.
Hey Ronaldo. Are there any issues with the camera in this ROM? Please reply soon.. thanks 🙂
Hi there, the camera works fine.
Ok thanks Ronaldo! So in conclusion, it’s a safe and stable ROM, right?
It is better to install the 5.1.1 ROM. It has more features and is more stable. http://naldotech.com/galaxy-s3-android-5-1-1-resurrection-remix-rom/
Hey Ronaldo, I clicked the link you sent and there’s no file on the other end of the link. Maybe you should get it checked out. thanks 🙂
Thanks for the heads up! The developer had moved the ROM location. Link updated.
No problem! I got it installed and running. Everything seems to be working fine. The camera sometimes says “Cannot connect to camera” though. And the only solution is to reboot. It doesn’t happen every single time, but do you know of any fix to this issue? Thanks again for your quick replies!
That is a known issue to stock AOSP on the Galaxy S3. A solution to this is to install a third-party camera app from the Play Store. Google Camera is a great alternative.
the link is dead. can you give working one?
