For those of you looking to experience latest Android 4.3 with most features/customization, you will definitely have to try the PACMan ROM.

PACMan ROM is a hybrid custom ROM that mixes the best of AOKP, CM10.2, and ParanoidAndroid ROMs. It’s an “all-in-one” ROM that allows you to fully customize your UI/system using AOKP ROM Control, run your favorite apps in tablet mode using ParanoidAndroid Hybrid Settings, and even take advantage of CM10.2 new features like the Focal camera.

For Noobs: If you don’t know what AOKP ROM Control is, see our AOKP ROM Control Settings tutorial first.  If you don’t know what ParanoidAndroid Hybrid Settings is, see our ParanoidAndroid Hybrid Settings tutorial first.

Overall, the latest PACMan ROM nightly builds are stable and solid enough to run as daily driver while allowing you to enjoy the bleeding edge of Android 4.3.  If you are not satisfied with your current Android 4.3 experience (and you need more features than your brain can handle), give the latest PACMan ROM a test drive and 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.

Once rooted, you should have TWRP installed on your phone. Installation of a custom ROM is easy if you learn the basic of it. If you don't know how to install custom ROMs using TWRP recovery, see our tutorial on How to Install Custom ROM using TWRP!

    • Andi says:

      I’ve got the same problem? I follow all the instructions to the dot and its not the 1st rom I’ve installed.. Have you been able to find a solution to this?

      • Andrew says:

        Nuh i just went back to wicked rom V7 and i think im gonna stick to it i think our phones dont like 4.3 custom roms for some reason it does the same thing with carbon rom. its a pitty cause i wanna keep my phone updated with the latest android versions

        • Nickadimus says:

          Even though Wicked has a few bugs. It’s still the best ROM out there in my opinion. Battery life is great on wicked and pretty much everything works . I was pushing 20 hours of battery with constant usage.
          Carbon and Wannam are both battery hogs!

  8. Percy says:

    Installed and now will not connect to kies for some reason.

  9. ryan says:

    Anyone know if we can flash CWM on the AT&T MF3 firmware yet? Got my S4 replaced with the warranty a week ago, and it came with the update of course.

  10. Josh says:

    I have flashed this ROM several times after formatting the entire system with TWRP and the ROM succesfully boots but after I reboot it gets stuck at the Samsung splash screen. BTW the phone is an M919, any ideas to a fix?

    • Kris says:

      I’ve had this issue with the recent Carbon ROM, but they seem to have resolved that issue with the last nightly update. The only trick I found was pulling the battery. So instead of rebooting, try a full shutdown instead.

  11. charles says:

    I am looking but root my Verizon galaxy s4. This will be my first time rooting a phone( I have done an HP touchpad).
    My question is this a good ROM for me to use? Seems to be some issues.

  12. Yakuzah says:

    I have tried this ROM twice over the last month using the nightly builds and its a fantastic ROM full of features, but it drains your battery like its like a mutha!

    From full charge after applying this ROM on my Galaxy S4, the battery depleted and as fully drained in two hours!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also massive issues with SDCARDS and ExFAT formatting, The card just dismounts randomly..

    Superb ROM, but needs a lot of work so if you apply be patient and have a charger cable with you 😉

  13. thewiz says:

    Rom was working fine for 5 days and now the only problem is that I cant text. Does anyone know how to fix this. I can only send a text with a picture MMS. No SMS. Any help MAX.

  14. Huett says:

    Hey, I’ve been trying to get this ROM and working for a while now, but every time I flash it, it seems like everything in the CM 10.2 part of it force quits, from the keyboard and browser to even the settings menu. Can I have a little help? I really like the way it looks…

    • Abraham Marroquin says:

      I have de same problem, Keyboard and Browser didn’t work i tried gapps-jb-20130813-signed and gapps-jb-20130726 =(

  15. deco says:

    This ROM promisses to be amazing some day… By now, it’s like a beautiul project still running… Tons of bugs and annoying reboots makes this a wrong choice by now. I’ve been using a paranoid distro in my S2 and it’s amazing… That’s why I choose PAC Man to my S4… It has the mainly features I’m already used BUTTT as I told, by now it’s just a project…I’ll be waiting to some bug fixes and maybe In the near future I’ll have it back to my baby lol. 🙂 See ya

  19. Peter says:

    Hi, can someone please tell me what is wrong with my phone. In every 4.3 rom that I try, the camera and the sim card aren’t working. Does someone know a fix for this?

  21. Loved the PacRom. Only problem is..NO MOBILE DATA. Installed it like 4 times with different custom recovery. Kept asking to reboot i9500 so mobile network could be available. Could make calls and receive SMSs, so it was not a SIM related issue. Moved back to another ROM and 3G data worked perfectly upon reboot.

  22. Hahagu says:

    Does the i9500 Rom work for the e300k??

    hey there and thank you for your info – I have definitely picked up anything new from right here.
    I did however expertise several technical issues using this site,
    since I experienced to reload the web site a lot of times previous to
    I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering if your web host is OK?
    Not that I’m complaining, but slow loading instances times will
    often affect your placement in google and can damage your high-quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords.
    Anyway I am adding this RSS to my email and can look out for a lot more of your respective interesting content.
    Make sure you update this again very soon.
