Sotmax Rom Thread
This is ONLY for the GT-i9300 international version.Do not flash it to any other Device
This rom is for anyone that want to just keep the stock look,generaly as the device was look like the first time that power it on.
Pre-rooted and zipaligned with some serious add ons that i think in my opinion will be needed and only that.
I was not disable any function or removed bloatware(sometimes some little stuff only) and any other stuff as i didnt want to make someone running and searching for them if he/she need them.
Also this is my personal build and just want to share it here.
It is for everyday use with not a single fc and is absolutely BUG FREE.
I thought i will be never be in a situation to ask for a donation but things go very different as i didnt planned that way.
The ultimate stock series have reach a very big popularity with the result of dropping download mirrors all the time.
Today corrsea give the kick to this and build the sotmax rom download site.This having at theory unlimited data traffic but as this is a very good move no matter what i m starting to build a server.
For that reason i have to start with some donations.No obligations no nothing.
Everyone is free to choose if he/she will donate for that reason.I really hate this also but unfortunatelly is one way road.
So everyone can feel free and choose wht he/she likes.
Donates can be given below my avatar.
Thank everyone for keeping this thread alive especially corrsea and tarzan11 for their efforts and Yank555 for his help nad kernel.
I will do whatever i can for anyone to be happy and i will be here to solve problems and questions
