How To Use GlamourS4/N3 ROM

The chart topping Galaxy Note 3 came out September last year.  Samsung installed some great features and new application in this device. If you have a Samsung Galaxy S3, we have a way you can experience most of the features and apps in the Galaxy Note 3.

The GlamourS4/S3 custom ROM has many of the new features and apps from the Note 3 and can install this in a S3.  This rom is based on MK6 Andorid 4.3 Jelly Bean.  Follow along with our guide below to experience the features of the Note 3 on an S3.

Prepare your phone:

  1. This guide is only for the HTC One M8. Check the model of your device by going to Setting>About Device Model
  2. You need to have installed a custom recovery on your device. We recommend TWRP custom recovery.
  3. After installing TWRP recovery, we recommend that you use Nandroid Backup to create a backup of your current system.
  4. Charge your battery so that it has 60 percent of its battery life.
  5. Have a back up of all your important messages, contacts, and call logs.
  6. If you have rooted your device, back up all your important apps and systems data by using Titanium Backup.
  7. Make a back up of the Mobiles EFS Data.


Note: The methods needed to flash custom recoveries, roms and to root your phone can result in bricking your device. Rooting your device will also void the warranty and it will no longer be eligible for free device services from manufacturers or warranty providers. Be responsible and keep these in mind before you decide to proceed on your own responsibility. In case a mishap occurs, we or the device manufacturers should never be held responsible.
