Alright fellow HTC One S brothers and sisters. It is time to bring back that video segment to our beloved phone. I know I still need to do a tutorial on how to root the device. It is on my list of videos to do. In the mean time, it is time to show off some ROMs.
In comes JellyBam. I nice little party ROM created by iGio90. This brings all the features from CM 10, AOKP, and Paranoid, and brings them all into one big orgy of fun. I must say, I love this ROM. I became a huge fan of the Paranoid ROMs, and when I first heard there were ROMs that had all of the 3 major ROMs in one, I became a happy little boy. I first tried out Pacman ROM first, which had all the ROMs in one as well. Sadly, after flashing a rogue kernel by the same developer, everything went to crap. So then I heard JellyBam was similar, so I flashed it. Yes it has everything Pacman does, but so much better.
First feature I noticed, was it had “TouchWiz Home” already pre-installed. Now TouchWiz is not favored in the community, but I gave it a shot. Not that bad! Smooth, fluid, fast…I felt like I turned the phone into a Galaxy S III without all the ugly icons. So I played with the TouchWiz launcher for the night, and almost did not go back to a stock launcher. Keyword “almost”, because today I downloaded Nova Launcher. I could not fully convert.
I love the way that these developers have combined the ROMs, simply because I would always think to myself; “why can’t I have this feature from this ROM, and this feature from this other ROM?” That is made possible now. JellyBam also comes pre-installed with, Awesome Beats, Facebook ICED, inverted Instagram, ModMyDroid, Performance Control, and other inverted Gapps. That is nice as well, because you only have to flash the ROM. No flashing Gapps behind it. Doing this through TWRP is as easy as it gets.
No real complaints about this ROM. I love it. Runs smoothly, and no real bad force closes. If you want to see the ROM in action, check out my brief video review below. If you try it out, let me know how you like it.
