    Also if I get call during this period it takes time to screen to turn on so I can receive the call for about 5 sec (bypass it by home screen answering option enabled).
    Wanted to know if there is option to enable call recording constantly- I mean not per conversation but by default call will be recorded?



  • Juan Jose Rottoli

    hi, boeffla sound works?

  • Luciano Bellusi

    Hi Wanam, are you working for new release of JB 4.3? i’m talking about GMK6 firmwares! again thanks

  • Trung Pham

    can i back up my app down from CH player :(

  • wapakplit

    Finally MK6 is out for the S3 and seems stable. Looking forward to Wanams version of this.

  • Alfred Lim

    Anyone knows a better way to fix the battery draining issue?

    • Alfred Lim

      Hi there, where can I download the 4.1.2 ? Looking at reverting from 4.3 to 4.1.2

    Hi All,

    I tried to downgrade to Wanamlite ROM 4.1 (6.8) after install 4.3 ROM, but I get error – “not registered on network” (not working mobile network) . So I have to install 4.3 again. As I understood, the problem is in modem.

    After install 4.3, install 4.1 from recovery but uncheck modem update in aroma installer.
    Works for me.
    Wanam, thanks for all you work…

  • Bowkermufc7

    Try using a custom kernel this should solve some drain issues

  • Teck Chia

    when i restart phone using power button, after press the restart button its not working.. please help

  • Izik.L

    Not bad at all

    I’ve got a few questions if it’s ok:

    The call recording option: Is there an option or a tweak to make it AUTOMATIC?

    Is there a mod or something that adds “show weather” on the lockscreen settings?

    Thanks so much


  • kleem naseem

    Noob question I’m on omega ROM. And want to switch to this ROM do i need to wipe as the zip says no wipe. Also is there a list of which apps have been removed? So i can decide if i want to install the removed apps zip. Thanks and sorry for my noobishness

    [MOD][18 NOV][MJ9/ME7] AOSP Lockscreen/Ink Effects/Camera at Secure Lockscreen, …

    Hi Guys,

    Samsung somehow forgot to include flare effect lockscreen in new leaked GMJ9 4.3. This MOD will restore the feature again and ink effect lockscreen as well.

    Download this zip file : http://www.mediafire.com/?47n6fv1nft1fqwq

    Backup your phone. Then flash the zip in recovery.

    Reboot. Done

  • Lucas Tanaka

    ridiculous 6-10 seconds to desblock the screen….

    20% battery consume in 6 hours when i was sleeping…..

    this is the worst rom for s3 u ever made wanam =/

  • Daniele Caponetti

    Many problems with this rom:

    – Huge battery drain! much more than WanamLite 4.1.1
    – Grafic glitch when press home button after lots minutes of stand by
    – May be alarm clock not works if phone in stand by.. l’ll check again..

    you release a new 4.3 soon?
    otherwise I will return to the excellent 4.1.1

  • 6rill2000

    Samsung have some very big problems with the release of 4.3 on the SIII and have been put it on hold !


    I think that this rom is based on the last leaked test firmware by Samsung and the update that causes problems is necessarily equal or newer to that one, so maybe we have to wait before install it or we gonna face many of this bugs (no ?)

    • Wang

      The article says, “might have been put on hold.” That means it is just the author speculating. I think the fact that the Chinese release of 4.3 has a higher change log points the other direction.

  • negu3r

    can i back to rom 4.2.2 ?

  • Wang

    Hey Wanam, thanks for all of your roms, been using them for about a year now. Was wondering if you are going to update this with the new Chinese firmware. Many on XDA are saying it takes away some of the bugs.
    Again thanks

  • ggallegos

    Kies support is not available for siinchronizing with Outlook. Any Alternatives?

  • Idan

    Thanks again for the update!. I must say it looks nice, BUT it looks a step back in performance. When the Phone is not in use and you press power to open the screen, it will take 2 to 60 seconds for the screen to go on. Also the battery time is from 36 hours back to 20. somthing in this rom is slowing wake-up and is draining the battery. I hope you can find a fix :) again many thanks for the great work,
    Greetings from The Netherlands

    • Piri Plinx

      Same issue when in power saving. High draining of battery when not, even in standby.

  • Antferca

    Hello, congratulations for the rom.

    I really like it but I have a major problem for me, the application Runstactic not find my heart rate monitor with Bluetooth Smart Technology. I have tried various Cyanogen and AOSP 4.3 rom and the same application is paired instantly.

    I would appreciate any advice to use this application in this rom which I love more than Cyanogen and AOSP.

    Sorry for my English translator.

  • Pascal Dede

    this rom is running very well by against I do not have 4 Ways Reboot (Reboot, Recovery, Hot boot Download) I reflash the rom but it’s always the same ?
    I must change the android.policy.jar file but it is in the jar and odex rom ?

  • Pascal Dede

    hello I have no option 4 Ways Reboot (Reboot, Recovery, Hotboot, Download)
    How can I recover? I reflashé but the same thing?

  • კობა7

    this is final android 4.3?

  • RViN

    Hi, I’m having a problem where the “use volume keys to skip tracks” option in Wanam Xposed doesn’t work any more. I can select it but I can’t skip tracks when the screen is off.

    I’m running this version of the rom with Yank kernel. Any idea what the problem could be?

  • anh phong

    charging baterry very low, waiting updates 7.2.1

    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Check your charger, and blame Samsung if you still get a slow charging, It is a stock kernel.

      • Jaimon Kuriakose

        Dear Wanam,

        Can you please make a mod to enable unlimited call logs as stock rom allows us to save 500 in history? I’ve changed to MIUI because of this. Please respond.

      • Sami Bani

        assalamou 3alaykom

    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Because you didn’t follow the steps i guess, and your partitions must be fixed before flashing the Rom, follow this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2494509

  • Ahmad

    we wait adam kernel for s3 4.3


    Big thanks,my friend

  • RaYmunDooo

    CPU Control Lite. Con Governor !! ONDEMAND !!

  • Omar Marrhich

    there is two link in the download section whats means removed apps ? that is remove the app instaled with the Rom ?

  • RaYmunDooo

    When it comes to releasing kernel source code, Samsung wastes no time. The Android 4.3 rollout for the Galaxy S3has only just begun, but interested developers can already download the relevant kernel source from Samsung’s Open Source Release Center, and start releasing custom kernels and ROMs that work well with the official Android 4.3 update on the device.

    Hit the source link to grab the Android 4.3 kernel source. The “update12″ file is the one you’re looking for, with version XXUGMJ9.


  • פבל שפילברג

    I have installed the rom and it is great (Thanks!!!!) except for the lag when I open the screen.
    Also if I get call during this period it takes time to screen to turn on so I can receive the call for about 5 sec (bypass it by home screen answering option enabled).
    Wanted to know if there is option to enable call recording constantly- I mean not per conversation but by default call will be recorded?

  • iron man

    شكرا على جهودك اخي الكريم لكن هناك مشكلة بعد تثبيت الروم حاولت اثبت التطبيقين و هما titanium backup and go backup لكن واجهت مشكلة عند فتح التيتانيوم طلب مني صلاحية الروت و اعطيتة و بقى على طول بوضعية البحث عن الصلاحية و لم يقتح ابدا بينما التطبيق الاخر فتأخر حوالي دقيقتين الى ان قدرت ان افتح التطبيق فلا اعرف هل هي مشكلة الروم او مشلة الروت غير متوافق مع نسخ 4.3

  • JiP CaM

    Im very happy with this latest rom…. very satisfied! Thank you wanamlite!

  • Trường Anh

    Light Effect on lock screen not work in that rom

  • Jaimon Kuriakose

    Dear Wanam,
    Can you please make a mod to enable unlimited call logs as stock rom allows us to save 500 in history? I’ve changed to MIUI because of this. Please respond.

  • NitzaN Kopelman

    HI, is it possible to update to this rom without updateing the baseband ?

  • Attila Hágen

    Thanx a lot for this long awaited ROM, great job.
    May I have 3 questions…
    1. How to install removed apps? Samsung account keeps saying session expired after having installed removed apps. I need Samsung Apps but I cannot install it.
    2. How to bypass exchange security? This particular security hacks of Wanam Xposed does not seem to work on this ROM. It still requests PIN.
    3. Is it possible to get back ink effect?

  • Dan Walker

    Hi Wanam. Just wanted to say I’m very impressed with your ROM package – i’ve been trying other custom ROMs on my S3 and this is by far the best I’ve come across – I really like the stock feel too and the fact that it’s 4.3.. Very good work!

  • RaYmunDooo

    The very good companion Rom.-

    Wifi consumes the background, turn in advanced 4 captures.-

    • Feisar

      Que dices, que el wifi chupa si no esta conectado ? Que paranoya no ?
      Por cierto, donde has cambiado los valores en WananXposed para poner los botones de primera captura en blanco?

      Gracias compi !

      • RaYmunDooo

        mira desde la 422 eso pasa aumenta el consumo teniendo marcada esa casilla en avanzados de Wifi tu prueba y veras si es paranoya.- Lo demás cambios etc. con el
        Xposed de Wanam.-

    • Feisar

      It´s a known problem of this rom and 4.2.2, try to disable accounts sync, use energy saver mode or disable wifi modes in advance setting to save battery.

    • recond9
    • richdadgiang

      Same here. You will find out how. Just go to Setting -> More -> Battery. You will see that your wifi never turn off although you have turned it off. This is a serious erros

    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Mostly you didn’t install Xposed framework correctly or you didn’t enable my App on the modules list.

      • Feisar

        Thanks, everything solved. Such a great apps this WanamXposed 😉

  • Derek

    Can anyone redirect me to a solution which I’m facing now which is when I press the power or home button, the screen doesn’t come back on from being lock. It will just take some time before lighting up.

    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      A known Stock bug.

      • Derek

        Ah, I see!
        Thanks for clearing my doubts.
        Any known fixes?

        • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

          It’s a good sign, because this means your device is getting a deep sleep.

          I will take a look to the wake-up delay later (maybe as a feature on my App), but i think it should be adjusted by Sammy on the upcoming updates.

          • Derek

            Okay, never tried looking it that way!

            I’ll stay tuned for further updates as well!

          • Fabien Cabanel

            I’ve got exactly same problem: it’s take too time to wake up…

          • richdadgiang

            You will find out how my battery can not live more than 6 hours. Just go to Setting -> More -> Battery. You will see that your wifi never turn off although you have turned it off. This is a serious erros

    • micmic0000

    • Derek

      It’s a leak stated right there!

      • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

        It is the same as the official FW.

        • Derek

          My bad! Sorry

    It’s been awhile I must say!
    But since I’m coming from XXEME v6.8, is there any other precautions I need to take besides a wipe?
    And will my apps work when I restore them using TiBU?

    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Just take a Nandroid backup (EFS included).
      Do not restore System Apps data, user Apps should work.
