AOKP 4.4.2 Based Grand:
AOKP is a rom which is based on the Android Open Kang Project. Thsi ROM would also provide you a stock experience, just like the Cyanogenmod. But this ROM has way too many features as compared to any other ROM out there. So if you’re a feature hungry tweaking person, this is the best ROM you can go with.

Omni ROM is a new ROM brand in the android scenario. The ROM is basically built from the source from Cyanogenmod, plus it has some more features, that make it more useful and customizable. The ROM has some great features like the Pure Multiwindow is a just a time saver, specially for me. Though it still has some bugs, and not perfect for the use, but it still works like a charm.

Also the Omni ROM is reallt stable and the ROM management is as usual great, and you will have to face no lags whatsoever.

And also the ROM has a fluent and precise RAM management system, so there would be no lags for sure. Though there are some issues with this ROM, like it has some of the minor bugs, like the inbuilt screen video recorder would not work, and also dual SIM. Off course you cannot expect a ROM based on AOSP to be supporting the Dual SIM functionality. This ROM for grand is based on the Android 4.4.2 KitKat, so you would be getting the features, and gestures like the hangouts integration, and also the Google Now integration. To install this ROM on your device, you need to make sure that you are on KitKat ROM, like CM 11, AOKP etc, or eith er you are on 4.2.2 TW based ROM.

SO you can add the personalize the device to the core level, and also as there is no bloatware, and no unwanted and heavy tweaks, so it would be the fastest, and also RAM management would also be good. Also this based on KitKat, so you would get the minimal kitkat features, and you add other features you want, and neglect the ones you do not want to free up some memory, and speed up the device off course. Apart from that SlimROM has many more features apart fro the being the lightest ROM in the developer arena, you can read more about the features of the ROM from here. But with this version there are some bugs like the Panorama mode not working in the camera, mute feature won;t work in the calling, WiFi hotspot won’t work, and also manual network search won’t run properly.

The RAM management on CM 11 for grand is just perfect, and that is the reason you would hardly see your device hanging. Though there are some of the bugs in the ROM, but they will surely be fixed in the updates released by the developer. LIke the screen record feature does not work, FM radio won’t work.

Cyanogenmod 10.1 unofficial for galaxy Grand:
We do not need the intorduction to Cyanogenmod ROM, or do we? Well I am currently running this ROM on my Galaxy grand. And I love it the most. but most people won’t. There are several reasons for it. The ROM is not official, so there some bugs in the ROM for Galaxy Grand. To be honest , I have only found the Sound recording, Video recording bug, and yes the Dual SIM won’t work. But still I am okay with these bugs, because I love the other features that Cyanogenmod offers you. The stock look like Nexus is as awesome as anything. The trebuchet launcher is completely versatile and highly customizable like any other launcher. The camera app is okay, but I prefer to use the Focal camera app, as it way better. Also there are some cool transition effects, off course the boot animation. The interface is also smooth. And runs the fastest, as there is no bloatware. Bloatware means additional third party apps, that companies put into phones, like ChatON from Samsung, etc. Also there many more powerful features. Though I did not like the music player they put in, but who cares? This ROM is highly customizable, I just deleted it, and set “Play Music” as my default player, and for the browser I set Google Chrome, it works the best. And also there are many more other leisure of having Cyanogenmod, you are on a better software that runs extra ordinarily fast. Also the cLock widget gets you complete information about whether and stuff. And the lockscreen is also highly customizable. Which makes the Cyanogenmod ROM for Galaxy Grand my favourite one. You could have a look at some of my screenshots attached below. As far as installing the ROM is considered, the method is same as that of the above ROM, and then flash Gapps package, after installing ROM file.

AOKP For Galaxy Grand:
Yes I guess I am too late before updating this post, as i Personally test the ROMs for Galaxy Grand and it took me some time testing the new ROMs after they were developed by k2wl, and various other great developers working out there to make Galaxy Grand more awesome. I have personally been testing the AOKP ROM since a week now, and it works great. I swtiched from CM 10.1, and I feel it fills in the void quite perfectly. The ROM is absolutely perfect and stable. There are nugs listed as of yet, as I have been personally using it and found no bug yet. Yes sometimes the Google Voice Search crashes, but if you update the app in the Play Store it works smooth. May be that’s a Gapps package issue, but that can be fixed by manually updating the app. Coming to the AOKP features, it is a AOSP based ROM, and really has a hell lot of customization options.Including changing the icons, trasparency, color of the status bar and navigation bar, adding nav bar, disabling the LED buttons on grand, installing themes and much more. And it is super fast. The ROM works magic. If you like the vanilla flavour, and like to change the settings too much, this is the ROM for you. Even if you do not like the Vanilla flavour, you can always change the theme, and baammmmmm, looks like you like. 🙂 So grab AOKP for Galaxy Grand from the Download link below. ( below the screenshot)
SlimBean ROM for Grand:
Yes SLimbean has also been developed for Galaxy grand, and also made fully functional. Just as AOKP it has no bugs. The video recording bug has been made functional. Offcourse any AOSP based ROM does not have Dual SIM working, as if you really want the dual SIM working, you probably should not switch the Stock ROM, or find any other Touchwiz based ROM for Galaxy Grand. As for the Slimbean it is a minimalistic ROM with cool features, but the framework is really light, and there is no Bloatware at all. And that kind of has a resemblance from it’s name. The ROM works fluid, probably the transitions are the smoothest, but as compared to AOKP, I did not find it great. But it all depends on what you need. So no hard feelings for Slimbean. it is yet another great ROM. No ROM is great or Best, it all depends on what you need. One good feature that I would like to list about Slimbean for Galaxy Grand is that it’s resolution is good, I mean the icons, status bar is incredibly small, so about 7 icons can fit into the dock, and you can have much matter to display on one screen, which is a great feature. You can also change the size to suitable size. Also you have an option to change the screen density under the ROM control options in Slimbean. You can download the Slimbean ROm for galaxy grand from the download link below.
There are many more new ROMs available and that have been developed like the new GENXT ROM for Grand, but I will only add them to this till I personally test them on my Grand. So keep checking here for new ROMs and features. 😉
So these were some of the best ROMS for Galaxy Grand i19082, that are the best and most reliable and are buttery smooth, with least reported bugs. I hope it helped. 🙂
