    Galaxy S3 LTE CM13 Marshmallow Custom ROM is brought to you by developer Winxuser and p.a.n. In addition to this ROM we also have the Lineage 14.1 for Galaxy S3 LTE (i9305) and we also have the Android Nougat 7.0 CyanogenMod 14/CM14 for Galaxy S3 LTE (i9305). If you want some more Lineage OS ROMs then stay tuned to the Lineage OS 14.1 ROM Devices list page. I have got another build which is brought to you by developer limjh16. These are the latest builds from all of the developers with lots of bug fixes and improved stability. Current status of both the ROMs are UNKNOWN and hence I always recommend to have a NANDROID backup using a recovery such as TWRP or any other of your lovely current ROM so that you can roll back if you are unsatisfied of this ROM. For more CM13 ROM updates and OFFICIAL update of Galaxy S3 LTE CM13, you can have a look on the big CyanogenMod 13 devices list.

    Installing custom ROM requires a custom recovery to be installed on your device, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup your all data. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by you. Neither the developer nor we will be held responsible for any disaster that happens to your device.

    Hello! Thank you for that info. What are the known issues on that ROM?

    I’m completely frustrated. I’ve been trying to flash my S3 LTE for many days now. But it always fails. I tried all mentioned CM 13 ROMs. And in addition I tried the newest CM 14 ROM as well.
    I use twrp-3.0.2-1-i9305. The whole flashing process works fine and smoothly. No error nor warning.
    But once it comes to reboot I stuck in boot-loop. I tried all the well known methods (swipe before and after flash, battery out and in and so on). Nothing works.
    Just for testing I also used an older CM10 ROM. This one boots fine but I wanted to have a newer one.
    I have no idea how to debug what is going on. Are there subversion of S3 LTE hardware which might run into compatibility issues? I bought mine in Germany.
    Any help is highly appreciated!

    O.k., Ich habe das Problem gefunden. Das Handy war nicht gerootet.
    Ich habe dann erstmal den passenden ROM der bereits root enthält geladen und danach das CM13 hinterhergeschoben. Und schon ging alles.
