How do you install these sh*ts? Is one file compatible with all carriers?
 PTC said:
No... best thing to do is go into your carrier's phone's forum on XDA and look at the ROMs in there.
What he said. Make sure you pick a rom that suits you dont base it off my opinion tho

and you have to be rooted. with clockwork installed

How many of y'all rooted your S3 using a mac? all the sites I've found using CWM pretty much state windows only and I have no access to windows or bootcamp etc.
I spent about a week looking for a reliable Mac process, between all the forums and YouTube, before I finally decided to setup my Bootcamp partition to root. It just works easier, especially for plugging it into the computer so the device can communicate with it. Haven't been back on Windows since the root. If you have a friend or relative with a PC, just commandeer their sh*t for 20 minutes.

Jellybomb 10.2 is prolly the G.O.A.T. rom for the S3

battery life, feel, everything is flawless
i couldnt get more than 2.5 hrs of screen on time with that bi*ch. plus all the blue with the bomb is overkill.

Galaxy Sfre3 by freeza is the smoothest rom ive used

Clean Rom 5.0 is a great custom touchwiz Rom.It actually runs better than the stock version.

BTW you don't need a computer to install CWM... it can be installed from the playstore.
That only works if you're already rooted. If you haven't rooted yet you'll need to flash CWM directly after rooting or flash it in ODIN.

wait what?

In your 2nd sentence you said you'll need to clash CWM "after" rooting... so if you're doing it after rooting, you're still already rooted when doing so.

When you first root, if you don't flash CWM (or another custom recovery) before you reboot, your phone will reinstall the factory recovery.

... I understand that but I'm still confused as to why you said, "that only works if you're already rooted."

In everything you're describing, everything has to be installed after root...

I just rooted my GS3 successfully on my Macbook. With PTC's video, it was easy. Nothing has changed, honestly, I can't tell that anything has changed so far.

Now what? Do I just go ROM crazy? Where is all the customization I get to do?

Nothing will change after root... rooting now just gives you access to do what you want.

First thing I'd do is probably just go ROM something... if you want me to give you a step by step I can do that....

Preciate your help, homie. I have CWM, made sure I was protected. I'm still gathering info on the best AT&T ROM out now. If anyone gets that info, drop a line in here. Greatly appreciated.

This is the ROM I run... I haven't used any of the other custom ROMs but there are people in the thread that come in all the time from different ROMs...



Also, he has an updated Kernel that's not included in the ROM that you will have to flash separately (after you flash the ROM).

I research all the other top ROMs from time to time (CM, LS, AOCP, Paranoid, AOKP Official)... but this just seems to get the best reviews and for me personally, it's very stable.

Remember when installing a ROM to read the OP fully so you don't miss anything.

You told this guy that's not rooted

that he could install CWM from the Play Store. A newbie who's not rooted may read this information and think it's correct. Now back to gloating over that wonderful knockout by Marquez.

I'm trying to find the best custom rom and if you say its better than Jelly bomb I might look into it...I like the blue theme cuz

How much battery life on Freeza? That's the main thing I'm looking for in my rom.
