Unofficial CM10 and AOKP Builds Released for Verizon’s Galaxy S III

Verizon’s locked bootloader on their Galaxy S III hasn’t stopped development at all to this point. Two unofficial ports of AOKP and CyanogenMod 10 popped up, with each either being as close to fully working as can be or with a couple of minor bugs that are currently being worked on.

AOKP Milestone 6 appears to be ready for release and a daily driver without any known bugs so far. CM10 is currently still being referred to as an “alpha”, however, data and all the other most important core features are working. You may just want to look into either one of these, especially CM10 as they always do a outstanding job and go beyond the call of duty.

These ROMs are only possible thanks to CVPCS’s kexec boot sequence and will appear to boot twice during the bootup process. That’s all normal and is just the kexec doing it’s work.

    I’m keeping an eye on both of these closely. Frankly, I’m surprised at how much I’m satisfied with stock and a little customization (disabling most of the bloat, swapping Nova for Touchwiz). It’s quite different from my previous Android experience. Still, I’m keeping both of these ROMs in the back of my mind if I don’t see Jellybean soon enough on my VZW SGS3.

    Thank you so much to the great Android dev community. You continue to make my investment in Android return so much more year after year.
