According to GSM Arena, Samsung Galaxy S3 was released in the market on May 2012 and the latest and official operating system made available for the smartphone since then was Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. But with the geniuses of custom Android developers, Samsung Galaxy S3 users can now install Android 4.4.4 KitKat update to experience Google's latest mobile OS.
The Paranoid Android team has been rolling out its latest build of custom ROM to various Samsung smartphones including the Galaxy S3. Accordingly, Paranoid Android 4.6 Beta 5 based on Android 4.4.4 KtKat update is now available for the Samsung Galaxy S3.
The report on Android Geeks noted that the PA 4.6 Beta 5 is "one of the most stable releases," which could also mean that the Final Paranoid Android 4.6 ROM might already be in the horizon.
Adventurous Samsung Galaxy S3 users who know how to install Android 4.4.4 KitKat update via custom ROM can access the firmware from the Paranoid Android Legacy AOSPAL ROM webpage.
Since the Android 4.4.4 KitKat Paranoid Android 4.6 Beta ROM is not an official firmware release for the smartphone, Samsung Galaxy S3 users are advised to be extra punctilious during the installation.
To avoid power interruption issues when installing Android 4.4.4 KitKat update via PA 4.6 Beta 5 ROM, make sure that the battery level is at least 80 percent. Samsung Galaxy S3 users also need to make sure that the appropriate USB drivers are already installed on the computer so the Android device can easily connect to the PC.
Furthermore, creating a backup for all the files installed on the smartphone is necessary. ClockWorkMod is one of the most recommended recovery tools for making a backup.
The PA 4.6 Beta 5 is also available for Samsung Galaxy S2, S4, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 2.
