    Does anybody think it's worth rooting my gs3 to update to jellybean now? I know it will probably be coming ota soon. I'm just worried about messing up my camera functions, but I really would like to have Google now

    You can install Google Now on stock touchwiz, so I would say go for it. Just make sure you read all the how to's and ask questions. Also, remember that if/when want to take the ota, you'll have to be completely stock to do this.

    First thing you need to do is root, then a custom recovery, and flash the GN zip in recovery.

    Don't root. It will void the warranty!!! I wish ppl wouldn't do this to this phone. It's an awesome phone. There's no need to root. Wait for the update! It'll be here soon.

    Me too. But I'm not willing to risk bricking my phone. I don't think rooting would really add much more to this phone. Idk.

    It's not the Google Now app. There is not much risk in rooting. The people who get into trouble are the ones that are impatient, and don't read and follow instructions.

    There is always a way around this. It's easy to get back to stock and leave no trace of a voided warranty. Folks shouldn't be so paranoid.

    Skennelly is 110% right. Rooting does no damage. Recovery images are in place for disaster recovery. And, that's why you made backups. Flashing ROMs is where the risk comes in, but if you read, read, read, and be patient, there will be no problems. Ppl are here who are willing to help you in case something does go wrong.

    Now, I'm all for rooting. But, it all depends on who you are and what your preferences are. Rooting and flashing ROMs will allow extra functionality to your phone, depending on what ROM you choose to flash. Again, that's where reading and doing your research comes in.

    I for one dont have the patience. I get frustrated easily. My brother tried to root my old phone, and he has done it with all his phones, he spent 4 hrs trying n it didnt work. I tried too. I had the HTC desire n thats a phone that NEEDS rooted but it never took. Im happy with this phone the way it is. If i EVER use up my 32 gb, I'll think about it or i'll just delete some crap.

    Yeah, rooting a phone definitely takes patience. Especially when one phone has several different ways to root.

    I used liquid jb for a few days and it was great. Data was slightly wonky but not too bad just weird handoffs sometimes. Everything works and you get a crap load of customization including soft keys which I love since my Nexus. I had just two issues. One was NFL mobile doesn't work as it usually doesn't on AOSP roms. Second the stock samsung camera seemed to take the best photos of any app on aosp. I've since went to CleanRom which is an optimized version of touchwiz. Fast and stable, I really like it.
