Custom ROMs are no biggie in the Android development scene. With big development groups like Paranoid Android and Android Revolution, many popular Android phones often get more features and usability out of their phone with custom ROMs over the stock ROM that the phone comes pre-installed with.

Building upon the same concept, Chinese startup Smartisan has released the first pre-alpha version of their innovative and promising new custom ROM, released only for the Galaxy S3 (international i9300 model) as of yet.

To flash the custom ROM on your phone, you simply need to download the software (on your Windows non-RT PC) and follow the instructions on the website. Smartisan promises support for a bevy of phones in the coming phones which includes the:

  • HTC One X
  • Samsung Galaxy S2
  • Xiaomi Phone 2
  • Samsung Galaxy Note II

Additionally, Smartisan will launch their own phone next year. Of course, most people don’t want to wait till then, or won’t be buying the phone, and hence can check out the custom ROM on their compatible phone when released. Hit the source link for more info.
