Unofficial CM11 Appears for the Galaxy S III I747 and T999
Ever since Android 4.4 KitKat was released to AOSP, we knew that a deluge of source-built ROMs was incoming. We’ve since seen various devices get the goods—most of which will not receive official updates to KitKat for quite some time, if at all. Now, a build has appeared for the I747 (AT&T) and T999 (T-Mobile) variants of the Samsung Galaxy S III.
The build comes from XDA Senior Member jermaine151. The initial build released two days ago was fairly rough. It lacked sound and thus couldn’t function as a phone. However, dramatic progress has been made in the past two days. Then once the sound was fixed, GPS, camera, LED flash, and almost everything else seemed to work. In fact, the only major problem at the time seems to be external SD card mounting. Now in the latest build that arrived this morning, this has been fixed as well.
If you want a taste of the KitKat goods on your I747 or T999, head over to the ROM thread to get started.

To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was criticized heavily for feeling more like a toy, rather than a premium flagship...
