    New Galaxy S3 Paper weight

    Well after waiting for more than 3 months, several days ago I finally rooted my phone. Backed it up, installed CWM and EZ proceeded to downloaded the latest CM10 nightly only to get a triangle warning to take my phone the the nearest Verizon dealer, That um-authorized software had been installed on my phone.
    I think it's hopeless, any ideas?
    Thanks

    Have you tried restoring the phone back to stock?

    Forgive me if this is an obvious or dumb question, but I gotta ask... you did run ez unlock (not ez recovery) and unlock the bootloader right? B/c that sounds like an error related to the bootloader still being locked.

    If the bootloader is still locked, I believe you should still be able to get into download/odin mode (home + volume-down + power) and flash the factory image through Odin.

    It really came down to the camera - the older my 3 kids get, the more important that becomes.

    I'm in a strong 4G area, so reception isn't an issue (since Moto supposedly is better in that area). Obviously they're two completely different experiences - both from a hardware and software standpoint. But the S3 has so much dev support thanks to the unlocked BL, I can make the software do whatever I want.

    As nice as the battery life was, it's not bad on the S3 (I can get a day no problem), plus I have a backup battery/charger if absolutely needed. Honestly the S3 is more pocketable and more ergonomic, but doesn't feel like a solid tank either.

    So all in all, lots of unimportant (to me! ) differences aside, it came down to the camera. Plus it should be about as future-proof as they come with 2gb of ram.
