    I have never modified an android phone before just to let you know . I have rooted my phone this morning and now i'm kind of wondering where to go from here. I assume I need a custome ROM and from what i read gapps?

    I guess my questions is where do I find the latest CM ROMS and the GAPPS to match? I've looked around and i see CM 10.1 , but how stable is that. I really just need to know where to look for this info. Everytime I think i've found the latests i see other things.


    I'm just looking for some guidence. I mean a working CM10 with the proper Gapps can be located where?

    Just looking for help

    Current CM official nightlies.

    Data started working on 12/24.

    Read the change log and all info. So skim through most recent feeds for any current questions asked and answers made.

    Gapps is in the build already to answer that question though.


    Happy flashing!

    yeah i would advise against any CM 10.1 ROMs currently they have been breaking things. Use the CM 10 stable or the AOKP milestone

    including my own, not saying its doing it to all, but some yes.

    Fish around the roms for now if necessary. I always fall in love with a certain one but it can be greener on the other side sometimes. Just have fun and flash away.

    Well before you go flash crazy lets make sure you have the boot loader unlocked... Far to many people flash before completing all the steps....

    I know that feeling. When I was on my X I flashed everything that came out but in the end I stayed on the very last CM 7 kang . I'm loving AOKP just a little more modifications on it.

    I have that ez bootloader is that enough before I flash a Rom. So really any stable 10.0 or the other aopk should be good enough. I just want to make sure I get the latest stable release that's all

    wait what system version are you rooted on? 4.1.1 or 4.0.4 because ez bootloader will not work on 4.1.1 jellybean and I'm not sure about 4.0.4 ROMs but I'm sure someone can help. But yes if on 4.1.1 CM 10 stable and AOKP milestone are very good. Another question have you flashed a custom recovery?

    If you have the EZ Unlock and it says you are unlocked you should be good.... Especially if you were on ICS pre root.... Also make sure you have installed a custom recovery either CWM or TWRP you can get either of them with EZ Recovery.... Then you will be ready

    I rooted through 4.1.1 and used CWM. I used the ez unlock and it says it was successful . i also have my info backed up using titanium pro. I think i'm pretty much down to figuring out the ROM and google app zip files.

    thank you I appreciate the help. I know this is a really dumb questions and you are probably saying why is this guy trying to mod then, but i'm looking at the AOKP site . They have the device names but the only one i recognize is i9300 . What is the device name for the verizon S3. Its just confusing.

    Ok so it will always say D2Vzw. Again I appreciate all the help. I figure it would have said SCH-I535 . Now I know to look for d2Vzw. Greatly appreciated .

    Thanks so much Clueless77

    No problem glad to help. But yes look for either of those. Just depends on where you are looking. I'm running that particular AOKP and have no issues.
