How To Theme Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 Like Holo Nexus AOSP

Samsung Galaxy S 3 (III) has its own though wiz theme. Most of the time, you may not like it. Now we can apply stock Android 4.2.2 AOSP theme. This theme affects all the system apps including settings, dial pad, messaging and other apps. You can use all the Galaxy S3 exciting features without any issue. It will not remove any feature.

After the JB domination installation, it looks like you have installed the CyanogenMod, but all the Samsung goodies are there. Unfortunately, this mods need the root permission with a custom recovery. You can use any custom recovery such as CWM,  TWRP or any other. This method will not wipe user data, but it will replace certain system applications to the Holo themed apps.

In my situation, this mod will not replace the lock screen to AOSP, but you can install Holo locker app from the Google play store. In addition to that, it doesn’t have the CTR off animation. But you can get it using another mod.
