just go for it. It's so easy to switch between roms that you can play with one and switch within minutes if you don't like the one you installed. Watch out though, it's addicting ;)

Clockwork is good. I am currently using TWRP, but both are basically the same and will definitely get the job done. I would just watch a youtube video on rooting the gsIII, I'm sure there are tons our there. I have been rooting since the Tmobile G1 and currently have the note II. Rooting and flashing roms has become as easy as a click of the button, big change since the G1.

As long as you dont have an HTC phone its easy! The GS3 is easy. And Id recommend cyanogenmod. If you like stock android with improvements. And TWRP as your recovery.

I've got cyanogenmod for my ROM and I use ClockWork for my recovery on my Verizon Galaxy Nexus. Pretty happy over here ...

If you want some AOSP lovin', I can't recommend PAC-MAN enough. My coworker (with a GS3) wanted it after seeing it on my Note II, and after using it for a while, basically told me "I don't see why anyone would want anything else."

If anyone is looking for a nice way to root/unroot your device, mskip has a very easy to use tool. He has one for several phone models. Start with this thread on XDA: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1703488

 

As for ROM's, I've not really cared for any of the ROM's for GS3. CM has screwy A2DP problems and has for a very long time and battery drain worse than rooted stock, most of the other stuff I've tried just seem like the garbage with a tweak here or there. I was really hoping I could find a digiblur port or one like it. I may give PAC a try. Anyone got any other suggestions for a leaner ROM with geek tweaks?

If you are looking for an S3 port of my rom it might be a bit. I started working on it but I only have my wife's S3 to test on. Not sure if I want that pain or not. I haven't found an S3 to borrow for a couple weeks either.

If i lived closer I'd let you borrow mine.

I have one with a cracked screen if you'd like to borrow it. Some of the glass was coming out but it has a screen protector. Drop me a PM if you're interested.

As long as I can see the screen and halfway navigate around it would be perfect.  I'm sure many folks here would appreciate it! PM coming.

    • Did my drive from PHX to SEA & got to experience the terribleness that is the totem lake area. Impressive, speed test didn't complete either time.
    • Weird that they'd go back to the Edge+. Would think they'd let folks use the S22 just like with Genesis. In other news, St. Louis has 10x10 n71 + n66 SDL live. A bit more info here:  
    • Wonder what other spectrum the auto industry can use, how much of the 5.9GHz was being used, and if 30MHz will be enough 20 or 30 years from now. The auto industry has had it for 20 years sure, but technology can move really slow.  It isn't good.  It isn't ready for real world applications. The hardware is too slow to be able to process enough reliable data. It is too expensive.  Etc. I would argue that we are just getting to the point where features that I would assume could use 5.9GHz are just now hitting mass market as the code is better, hardware is not only significantly faster but also cheaper. The baseline trim models still lack a lot of safety features but the next trim up usually comes with a bunch of goodies I'd assume could make use of 5.9GHz. Just imagine where we were in 2005, 2010, 2015.  Mostly just assumptions without enough knowledge of the spectrum use, so a hint of skepticism. With the what, 1.2GHz that opened up in the 6GHz range, getting 45MHz out of 5.9GHz is very meh.
    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
