Experimental CM10 for the Samsung Galaxy 3

AOSP-based ROMs are usually the only way many devices ever see versions of Android beyond their OEM’s wishes. Thankfully, they are also everywhere. The Samsung Galaxy 3 has actually had a port of CyanogenMod 10 for quite some time, but it was definitely one of the rougher first builds out there. However, it has recently received a big update that actually makes it usable.

XDA Senior Member marcellusbe first released CM10 for the Galaxy 3 back in July. However, it had a lot of issues: No data, no phone signal, there were kernel panics, and a host of other issues that made the ROM little more than a proof of concept. However, after some extensive work, the ROM has been updated, and the working list is now much longer than the not working list. The working list now includes:

– SDcard
– openfimg
– Wifi
– Vibrator
– Sensors
– GSM
– Screenshot
– Sound
– Internet connection
– Deepsleep kernel panic
– Bluetooth (big thanks to pmanian!)
– DSPManager
– UMS
– Mobile data
– backported xt_qtaguid and xt_quota2 for data usage stats (need more tests)

This is excellent news for the Galaxy 3 folks because this ROM can actually be used on a daily basis. The only things still wrong are the typical camera issues and some video codecs issues. If you’d like to try it out, check out the original thread.
