For this week’s Sprint Galaxy S4 SPH-L720 ROM of the week, check out Sacs Custom ROM by XDA user Sac23. Sac23 has been making some great ROMs for the older Galaxy S3 and his latest custom ROM is also very good on the Sprint Galaxy S4 with excellent performance and battery life.
Based on latest MF9 firmware (yes, you will get the MF9 update), Sacs Custom ROM brings you some excellent customization through its own ROM Control and 3Minit Settings (working flawlessly out of the box). Some of the cool features include Torch function using Volume Up button when your screen if off and also Torch function during lockscreen through 3Minit Settings app.
For sound, you will get Viper4FX to tweak your speakers/headphones/bluetooth to your liking, just make sure you choose “CortexA8 Neon” when installing it. Hotspot is working also out of the box for those of you who need tethering.
The Sacs Custom ROM also features modded framework for the launcher for great performance along with great battery life.
Overall, this is a very stable, solid custom ROM for both noobs and flasholics so if you haven’t tried Sacs Custom ROM yet, try it this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
What is a Custom ROM?
A custom ROM is a custom, modified operating system that you can install on your Android device. Basically it's like installing Windows OS on a Macbook. By installing a custom ROM, you can bypass stock factory settings like locked hotspot tether, install new Android versions early, or even convert your phone into another OS.
With a custom ROM, you can really maximize the capabilities of your smartphone by adding custom features that have been developed by open source developers.
How to Install Custom ROMs
First, you will need to root your device, if it is not rooted yet, follow our root tutorial and root your phone.
