    [ROM][JB] [4.2.2] Avatar ROM for Samsung Galaxy SIII(d2cri) - Updated [Apr 16, 2013]

    I take no claim for this rom, only the discovery and the fact that they DO build for us but can't post it on XDA. I edited the original post that I quoted from XDA to reflect the Cricket S3 rom, not the Verizon one. Original post for Verizon rom here:

    I ran this rom all yesterday and played with it a bit. It's solid, smooth, and has tons of free themes. The lock screens are awesome too (much better than the normal slide to the side to unlock)

    hello, I decided to try this avatar rom on my sg3, and I really like it. it ran smooth and has many features from cm10.1. here is the problem that I would like info on. when I run stock jb I get great download and upload speeds (6mb/1.5mb) but when running avatar rom I get 6mb download and 0.20 upload. my question is there anyway to fix my upload speed? other than that the rom runs great. is this something that can be fixed?
