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.

    • I just pulled up my trails and they all have TACs listed. So no nulls, zeroes or -1's. But there is huge swaths of trails missing. It doesn't appear to log or at least keep any NR driving data unless it is NR only. If it's mixed NR/LTE, then the only thing appearing in the trails is LTE. I am also getting this error.  So it is seeing invalid TAC values, but then when I look at logs, it's like it's deleting them.  Robert
    • I wanted to get on with Genesis, but waited too long.  Just moved my line to BM and another to RP this week.  Experience switching to BM was fantastic though.  Hopefully through them I can at some point get a new sim, or go esim to ride on the Dish network when it exists.
    • Do you see the TAC displayed as -1 in the exported file or is it blank/0? I took a look at your upload on Monday at roughly 12:30 and I’m not seeing any non-valid TAC values - not even -1s, 0s or blanks…
    • Hey @mikejeep - I just shot you a diagnostic from my new Galaxy Flip last night. I’m not able to see Verizon n5 in-app when connected to a midband anchor. 
    • I'm having issues during a WiFi call where the caller can here me but I can't hear them. There are a few bug trackers on Google, but the problem appears to date back to at least early 2021. Appears to maybe also be a T-Mobile specific issue. I'd guess it's technical issues like this that caused them to discourage bringing the Pixel 5 onto their network. And why they didn't even sell it through T-Mobile in the first place. Anyone still here with a Pixel 5? Ever see this issue? Anyone with knowledge of the problem or insight? I'm about to just buy a different phone. Probably won't be a Pixel.
