LiquidSmooth ROM – HighOnAndroid ROM of the Week!


For this week’s HighOnAndroid ROM of the Week, check out latest LiquidSmooth ROM v3.2.

Based on latest Android 4.4.4, LiquidSmooth ROM brings much, anticipated performance of latestest and great Android 4.4.4 along with slew of customization/features.

LiquidSmooth ROM can be installed on many Android devices that have root and CWM/TWRP installed like Galaxy S5, S4, S3, Note 3, Note 2, HTC One M7/M8, Nexus 4/5/7/10,  and many more.

This is probably one of the fastest Android 4.4.4 custom ROMs on the market right now, one of my all-time favorites.

Upon installing LiquidSmooth ROM, you will find a nicely-themed Liquid Launcher, which is slightly modded KitKat launcher with support for modifying your grid size.  If using a phone without hardware keys, you will also find nice Android L-styled soft buttons, which also you can customize and add up to 5 different buttons.

For Galaxy phones or phones with AMOLED screens, make sure you enable “Total blackout” option in Settings as that will save you some battery.  AMOLED screens use zero energy on black pixels so having this on will save you a bunch of battery life.

For customization, LiquidSmooth ROM offers one of the best customization options through its LiquidSmooth settings (in Settings).  You will be able to customize everything from your lockscreen, status bar, navigation bar, CPU, and much more.

Navigation custom setttings are my favorite part of the ROM, you have many choices including App circle sidebar, Gesture anywhere (shortcuts using gestures), PIE Controls (two PIE controls on-board), and customization offered for your soft buttons plus navigation rings.  By using your navigation options carefully, you will be able to maximize efficiency of your phone while on the go.

For notifications, LiquidSmooth ROM offers Active Display, Driving Mode, HALO, Heads Up notifications, lockscreen nofitications, and some more.

Many of the LiquidSmooth builds also come with an overclockable kernel, meaning you will be able to easily overclock for your high-end games/graphic-intensive apps.

  • Ricardo

    Hi, will work for S4 i9500?

    • Max Lee

      There an older version but not v3.2

  • Norbl

    This app is extremely fast, but there are drawbacks. It doesn’t have any of the native Samsung S-Note tools. There are Play Store tools which try to fill in these gaps, but they are not as good.

    Also. Android 4.4.4 has the text reflow capability removed. This was a feature I wanted to keep so I put on the N3bula rom. It is very fast, but not near as fast as Liquid Smooth.

  • Norbl

    I meant to say this “rom” is extremely fast (not “app”).

    I used this for a while on my Note 2 and it’s very efficient in RAM usage. It never went above 900 MB no matter what I did. That’s the reason it runs so smoothly I think.

  • mike

    I assume wifi tether works on Sprint ?

    • Max Lee

      Yes of course.

  • Avi Nahoray

    Question would you go with pacman rom or liquid rom?

    • Max Lee

      Whichever you like the best.

  • Ricardo Encarnacion

    s2 t989 works for ???

  • Bryan Liew Carl Jun

    Hey Max can I ask is this rom supported by Agni kernel? I’m using Note 2 N7100 running cm11 and the screen over saturates after I flashed agni kernel for cm11.

    • Max Lee

      Well if it boots, it should be fine. I think Agni kernel has an app to control the screen, you may want to try using that to adjust it.

  • edi

    I installed this rom a month ago. But I have this problem. You know those notification badge numbers over some apps like sms, phone, Facebook, Facebook messenger, that shows you a missed call or sms? They are not working.
    When you get a message on your Facebook messenger the chat head doesn’t open to let you know that you have a message waiting for you. Nor the heads up gives you the information. Even the sound doesn’t sound. This is a problem that is common on all the aosp roms that I have used.
    Am I doing something wrong here or its a bug?
    I would really appreciate an answer.

    • Max Lee

      Not sure on that but works on most of my AOSP ROMs, you have to be certain which ROM you are referring to also, many earlier 4.4.4 AOSP ROMs did have much more bugs.

  • anirup

    Will this work on note3 sm-n900?

    • Max Lee

      Nope N900 does not support AOSP ROMs like Liquidsmooth or CM11.

      • jace

        It works on SM-N900P. Posting this from a Sprint SM-N900P with bad ESN flashed to GSM using Straight Talk. Go figure.

  • Mike

    Max, any reboot issues on Galaxy S5 TMO variant? I just installed last night and had a reboot after dialing crashed?

    • Max Lee

      No reboot issues here. If it doesn’t happen more than once I wouldn’t worry about it.

      • Mike

        Thanks so far ROM is buttery smooth appreciate the review.

  • Mike

    Hi Max
    Will it work with a Sprint Galaxy S5 SM-G900P? I’m running MOAR but I would like something new.

    • Max Lee

      Yup will work fine.

  • jeff

    Hi Max, does this rom work for galaxy S2 GT-I9100.

    • Max Lee

      No will not.

  • Luis Henrique

    hi Max how are u ? what is the best rom for note 3? i the x note in my device, but what you recommend? i like the S pen have a good day, in many roms i dont have idea what is good for me.

  • kvelez

    *Great review I just wish there was a version for the SPH-L720 the snapdragon chipset.

  • Jacob Wells

    Will I be able to install this or convert my AT&T S5 with safestrap installed?

    • jtmny

      Would like to know this also

  • Avi Nahoray

  • Derek

    Because of this rom, I have finally converted to Android. Excellent rom on HTC One, One problem with my bluetooth restarting over and over. Any fixs for bluetooth would be greatly appreciated.

  • Isaac

    So does this work on Galaxy S4 T-Mobile SGH-M919 ?
    Because I been trying to root mine and i can’t seem to find the right one

  • Ray

    Thanks for the tutorial on Liquid Smooth. Great Rom so far.

    A couple quick things, do you know if they ever updated to fix camera? No zoom and if using front face camera, it reboots the phone when trying to take a shot.

    And for some odd reason, My SD card wil work great for the first day rom is flashed and then after that, it goes nuts. Gapps fails and Apollo fails every single time and status bar quits working.

    Ever ran across either of these items? I am curious because I really want to keep this rom but I need my camera and sd card. SD card more so that camera.

    Thanks again!

    • Ray

      I failed to say that obviously I am on a at&t I747 GS3

  • Vishwajeet Bharadiya

    I can use it on my note 3 sm n900 ?

  • tommyguns818

    I’ve had LS 3.2 running on my S2 t898 for 2 weeks now and everything works great and this old phone is very snappy.

  • alan

    thanks for this tutorial. It helped a lot and now my S3 works smoothly.
    I have one question about the camera. I have a google camera installed with downloaded google apps.
    It works normally but I can’t find a way to make it store photos and videos to external SD card.
    Can someone help me with this problem, please.
