How many of you that have GS3s rooted yet? Of those that have, are you running a ROM that isn't stock?

 

I'm about to root mine and was looking for some feedback on some of the ROMs out there.

I've had mine rooted since the day after getting gs3. I've only personally tried Blazer ROM. I was using 1.3 for the longest time and it was super snappy, stable, and had a great battery life (was getting over a day with about 5 hours of screen on time). I just recently upgraded to 1.5. Feels about the same except for a fix with call recording (took it out due to the button overlapping with the call switch button) and the CRT animation added when turning off the device.

 

I would highly recommend Blazer rom.

I'm rooted too but im using stock. Just a tip...search for the "flashless" root method if your going to root your phone. Any other root method will increase your binary counter and currently triangle away only works for the international version of the GS3.

Blazer was good on the E4GT too. I wonder if Caulkulin will start developing for the GSIII he had some great ROMs.

I'm hoping so.

I haven't done much looking into the flash counter but what is the significance of it? Is there a limit to the amount of times the memory can take a flashing?

 

It is a way for the manufacturer to tell if you rooted and installed a ROM thereby voiding your warranty. USB jigs are supposed to reset the flash counter.

Kinda figured it was for that. I had heard in the early days of GS3 news that the ROM could only be flashed a number of times and that it was much lower than most phones.

Does the camera software still support burst mode and taking stills while recording video on Blazer or CM10?

 

Running Blazer and stills ehile recording does work. Haven't tried burst yet.

    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
    • Yup. It keeps GPS info up to date while logging. 
    • Looks like GPS Status and Toolbox
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.
