ParanoidAndroid Ported to the Samsung Galaxy S III
Previously we brought you news of Paranoid Android being ported to any and every device that will have it. For the uninitiated, it is the first truly hybrid phone / tablet ROM that allows users to choose whether or not they want to run their devices like a phone or a tablet. As many fans and ROM developers are eager to point out, this is not simply a tablet-mode ROM. It uses Per-App-Layout and Per-App-Density, which allows users to define the DPI and layout per application. Essentially, you can set an app to tablet layout, and the app will act as though it’s running on a tablet. Or you can set it to phone layout, and the app will run as though it’s on a phone.
The Samsung Galaxy S III is among the latest devices to receive the goods. Released by XDA Senior Member gokussjx, the ROM is fully stable and ready for every day use. The only known issue is when applications see layout or density settings they do not support, which leads to errors and force closes.
Aside from that, the ROM is just as delightfully eccentric as it is on the other supported devices. The best part is still to come, however. As the ROM released currently is based on CyanogenMod9, gokussjx is working on a Jelly Bean version of ParanoidAndroid based on CyanogenMod10. That’s right, we slip the Jelly Bean news right into our ICS news.
