If you are a Note 3 user who have rooted his smartphone since Lollipop 5.1.1, you might have installed Phronesis 5.1.1 ROM. It was one of the best ROMs available for Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Well, its time to experience the same beauty with Android Marshmallow in Galaxy Note 3. It’s stable, solid, feature rich and full of customization you will ever want. The developer (oluwaponmile) claims that, Note 5 users will probably want to give away their phone to get Note 3 just to use the Phronesis N5 Port for N3. That sounds promising, doesn’t it? So what are we waiting for? Let’s get started with installing Phronesis Android Marshmallow (6.0) ROM in Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Note: Neither we & nor the developer would be held responsible for anything happening to your device during this process. It’s your decision to customise your device. We can only help you under such situation if its solvable. Make sure you are aware of Rooting & Custom ROMs before following this guide.
