namelessrom android 5.0 lollipop galaxy s3

There have been a lot of custom ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy S3 which are based on Google’s latest version of Android, 5.0 Lollipop. A lot of devices like the S3, Xperia and Nexus have received 5.0 Lollipop builds.

But looks like the Samsung Galaxy S3 is getting a lot of love when it comes to Android 5.0 Lollipop ROMs. At first, we saw a very buggy Lollipop ROM based on AOSP sources. It was buggy and nothing was working.

Then, an unofficial build of CyanogenMod 12 got released. It was a much better version compared to the first ROM. It had the original launcher of Android 5.0 Lollipop with white background, notification panel and the easter egg.

Still, there were a lot of bug such as WiFi, Bluetooth, mobile data, RIL and phone calls not working and missing Gapps. Today, we have another ROM based on 5.0 Lollipop called the NamelessROM.

The NamelessROM is a lot better than previous ROMs that we have already covered. WiFi, Bluetooth, mobile data, phone calls and RIL work without any problems. The stock browser can be used to browse the net without force closes.

Most importantly, NamelessROM supports Google apps (Gapps). So you can enjoy all the Google apps on your Samsung Galaxy S3 with Android 5.0 Lollipop. Some of the apps installed are Gmail, Google+, YouTube, Play Store and more.

    • You can directly install Lollipop but it is recommended to install KitKat first to prevent any bugs.

    tengo que instalar arter97-kernel??

  • Jasiek Vetulani

    Battery is draining real fast on this form me, even when it’s charging it’s falling… Pretty sure it’s the fault of the mod since it was working perfectly a few hours earlier on stock. Also the SD card doesn’t seem to be recognized (it can be access in recovery). Any ideas?

  • Rohit Kumar

    I have downloaded the Namelessrom and followed all instructions but whenI tried installing it with CWM, it shown me the file is corrupt…..suggest me to solve this issue…..

    • Make sure to download the file from your computer again. The file can get corrupted if the internet connection is bad.

      • Rohit Kumar

        Ok, I am downloading the file again on my computer, will see u soon….

        • Rohit Kumar

          tried again, and the error is being generated as “E: Error in /external_sd/”
          (Status 7)
          Installation Aborted

          What to do next ???? suggest me…

          • That is not the right ROM. That is for the “hammerhead” variant. Download the latest ROM on the link above. What recovery are you running on?

          • Rohit Kumar

            I have downloaded the again, and tried once more. it proceeded for a moment like formatting system, extracting system, and again shown the same error. I am using CWM recovery v

            And tell me one thing more, is it need a rooted phone??? I am missing this one and considering might be a possible reason for the failure. Confirm me….

          • CWM recovery is the problem. You must be on the latest version of PhilZ recovery.

          • Rohit Kumar

            Hey Ronaldo, I got the key to success…thankz dude..:)

  • Titus Icleanu

    Hey Ronaldo! Congrats on all the cool reviews and tips on roms for SGS3.

    A couple of things regarding this ROM. Everything works great, even the NFC and Barometer sensor, but it gets laggy after a I installed a couple of apps and some apps simply crash into a blackscreen and the close without the Unfortunatelly message or force close. Any chance the devs will come with an update soon?

    • They certainly are. Check if all the installed apps are compatible with Lollipop. Also, try out CyanogenMod 12. It is the most stable Lollipop ROM for the Galaxy S3.
