There are many great features about the Capon firmware for the Samsung Galaxy S3.

  • The developers have designed it based on the Stock FW XXDLIH
  • They have added the Deodexed feature
  • Adfree Hosts have been added
  • The DSP Manager for Audio settings have been added
  • Extensions on the Power Menu
  • Photo and Video Experience has been enhanced

Worried if this firmware is safe? Well this firmware has been taken from an extremely reliable developer from XDA forums and is very safe for your device. However, you should be careful when installing this on your phone as no one can be held responsible for problems that come up during doing the upgrade. This includes things like the device being bricked. However, this very rarely happens, so you will not have to worry about it too much.

To make it easier for you, the process you will have to follow to upgrade has been split into two easy to follow processes.

First, you will have to do the pre-upgrade steps.

  1. Make sure your phone is a Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300 by going to Settings > About Phone. Do not attempt to use this upgrade on any other device or version.
  2. The upgrade can only be used on unlocked boot loader devices, not just devices with the model number “I9300″
  3. Make a complete backup of the existing ROM through Nandroid Backup and Restore App.
  4. Other data such as SMS messages or Contacts should be backed up onto a PC or another device
  5. Make sure your phone is sufficiently charged beforehand
  6. Disable all the antivirus programs on your device. Uninstall the Kies package from your PC, the one that will be used to perform the upgrade.
  7. Next, enable USB debugging on your phone. Do this by going to Settings > Applications > Development > USB Debugging
