The most popular ROM for the S3 is the Cyanogen one. You can find the latest version here:
That is for the International version of the i9300
Installation instructions can be found here:
Be aware though that you accept risks when you install custom ROM's and you so so at your own risk.
I still have not been able to figure out re- the Kit Kat upgrade for my S3 - model- GT-19300.Android 4.3 and Device name is GT-19300. Would some one kindly let me know whether my S3 will get an upgrade?
you can get 4.4 Kitkat by doing custom ROM on your s3 i9300
and you can also have the Samsung s5 firmware exactly on your S3 i9300 .. and can manage to enjoy ultra power saving .. and can fix some s3 issues
just search on google on the best custom rom for samsung s3 i9300 !!!!!!

The S3 is Qi compatible because I use that method as a secondary means of charging.
First you will have to purchase a Qi charger and a Qi receiver for an S3.
If you remove the back cover of your phone you will see two brass pins on the left of the battery. They are the charging pins for the Qi receiver. Place the receiver over your battery with the pins on it aligned with the pins on the phone. Replace the battery cover and place on the wireless charger.
You will also have to purchase a 2A micro USB charger as the receiver requires a charger with at least 1A output.
Also be aware that Qi charging is convenient but slow compared to a mains charger.
Finally, you have to place the phone squarely over the charger's coil. I have one of the new type of Qi charger, it has three coils instead of one. You might consider buying one of those. They aren't any faster but you can just place the phone anywhere on it and not worry if it is in the right place for charging.
I love my S3, but lately I'm having problems charging it. I have to hold the phone and cord together to keep the connection. I bought a new cord, and that didn't work either. Would one of those charging pads work with my phone? The description says the device you want to charge has to be Qi enabled. How do you find out if it is?

Not frustrated, just annoyed. Annoyed with people like you that come on this Forum saying 'I've got KitKat on my S3' when the model you have is completely different to the one discussed here.
Because of comments like yours, other users start asking when their i9300 will get KitKat. It will NOT, and it is irresponsible of you to imply that it is available.

Is your phone the i9300 model? NO, it is not! Your phone is a different model. It has 2Gb of RAM which is why it got the KK update.
As you seem confused as to which phone you have I can give you the link to your model.
You can see that it is NOT the same as the i9300. I repeat - the i9300 will NOT get KK.
I think it depends on the exact model of your s3, and on what region you are in. some say they don't have the update. I just updated mine this morning and so far everything is good. I haven't noticed any bug on it yet. model number on mine is SGH-I747M, and is now running on android 4.4.2..I'm from the Philippines by the way.
