I am tested OmniROM 4.4 build in Galaxy S3 I9300 and the ROM satisfies my requirements ... It depends....ROM may have bugs ... flashing custom ROM may brick your device at your risk.

After Installation If you can't get old files in sdcard....0 folder mount issue....then, navigate to /mnt/shell/emulated using any root file manager (choose ES) and move the contents to /mnt/sdcard/...

- Bug Found : Sometimes can't answer incoming call Fixed in Latest nightly
( If still exist install Tiny Call Confirm..It will definitely fix
- Audio in both headphone and speaker phone are not cool
