Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 to Android 5.0 Lollipop Update

There have been lots of custom ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy S3 based on Google’s latest version of Android, 5.0 Lollipop. A majority devices like the S3, Xperia and Nexus have received 5.0 Lollipop builds.

However, it seems that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is getting a lot of love when it comes to Android 5.0 Lollipop ROMs.  I have just given the update procedures for Samsung Galaxy S3 mobile phone to make fully Android Lollipop 5.0.2 upgrade on it.

First of all, I would like to mention NamelessROM. The NamelessROM is much better than previous ROMs that we have already covered. WiFi, Bluetooth, mobile data, phone calls and RIL work without any problems.

Most importantly, NamelessROM supports Google apps (Gapps). So you can enjoy all the Google apps on your Samsung Galaxy S3 with Android 5.0 Lollipop. Some of the apps installed are Gmail, Google+, YouTube, Play Store and more.

Let us see the requirements for that;

  • Download appropriate NamelessROM version from http://sourceforge.net/projects/namelessrom/files/n-2.0/i9300/
  • Download Lollipop Google Apps file from https://s.basketbuild.com/filedl/gapps?dl=gapps-lp-20141109-signed.zip
  • Download Custom Recovery On Galaxy S3 (CWM, PhilZ, TWRP) from https://goo.im/devs/philz_touch/CWM_Advanced_Edition/i9300/. I downloaded the latest version and installed it in this article. (philz_touch_6.48.4-i9300.tar.md5)
  • Download stable version of ODIN program from http://www.samsungodindownload.com/.
  • Copy NamelessROM and Gapps files into your phone internal storage or sdcard (I prefer SDCard and used it in this post)
  • Turn your Galaxy S3 off. Press and hold at the same time Power + Home + Volume Down buttons. Release them when the Galaxy S3 boot animation shows up.
  • Connect USB cable to your phone and your PC.
  • Open up ODIN program, choose AP and select Custom Recovery Philz_Touch file you have already downloaded in the step 3 to install.
  • After Custom Recovery install has finished, disconnect USB cable from your phone and restart your phone. You will see screen like the given image below.
  • Backup your current phone data.
  • Wipe Data and Cache
  • Choose Install Zip
  • Firstly install NamelessROm.xxx.zip file and then install gapps-lp-xxx.zip file
  • After successful install, reboot your mobile phone and wait for rebooting. It will take a few minutes to be booted.
  • You are done. Congratulations 🙂
