    Soooo............ About that Bootloader.................

    So I know that the gs3 has been cursed by the big V with their placement of testicle clamps (locked boot loader). I have been searching around and have heard of some methods to install a custom kernel and possibly install custom rooms?


    Can someone please elaborate, not just me but for all the other people just like me that have been painfully been waiting for news if it will ever be possible to install custom roms.

    And to elaborate on painful.... I have an upgrade waiting for me, has been for 4 months, (was saving it for gs3) but after shattering my dinc screen I don't think I can last......

    Thinking about a nexus, but id still love to have a gs3....idk I know I'm rambling I've just waited so long and feel like I being emotionally raped(too much?)

    Sorry if anyone can share their knowledge it be much appreciated

    So yeah someone break the ice and get this post rolling , I would like to know if I'm the only one going loony over this ?

    yeah i can over clock use odin located here: New Odin for s3 available for download - xda-developers to gain root access. You will need to install CWM afterwards by pushing it through with ADB. You will also need all the drivers. They can be installed by using Kies. Just press the Troubleshoot option in Kies. Then you are set. So Odin=root ADB=CWM.

    Oh I see sorry im still a custom to thing from my og Droid days...


    So I guess that after installing cwm u can basically do whatever you want and the locked boot loader shouldn't be a concern? Please correct me if I'm wrong

    The locked bootloader still causes issues but because of the way Samsung encrypted the device, devs have found some workarounds. As I understand it, when you install a kernel, it replaces your recovery on the S3 and you have to boot to your recovery each time before booting to the OS if you want to use the kernel. Now keep in mind this is my limited understanding.

    Exactly, syndicate.

    I'm told that, unless you're dead-set on using CWM, you can use the TWRP installed via the Goo Manager -- no need for ADB, so far less risk of borking the phone!

    There's actually a app in the play store. It does the adb commands for you to get cwm. Only the Verizon version though

    right now all the verizon custom roms are just like stock but stripped down and more usable.
