1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Generally OTA Updates Fail on Custom Roms. At least all the times I have tried. Usually Breaks Root as well.

    Just wondering why you haven't rooted the S3 yet. Sorry if I thread jacked. Yes I believe if you go back to stock aand take the update you will loose root but there is a method to root jelly bean. There are actually a few ways to do so.

    I just flashed an updated ROM and flashed the updated modem and radio separate. thats alot easier than going back to stock. you should also look into the Voodoo rootkeeper way. im not familiar with that route though.
