    I never had any issues. Rooting it is pretty simple and there are quite a bit of Roms to choose from.

    A lot of people DO have issues after rooting, and many don't. You must first ask yourself, "do I have a really good reason to root" I just ran into, (on another forum) 4 people in a row with problems directly related to having been rooted. You never know when you may get bitten.

    I have also never had an issue after rooting and roming my S3. Maybe the people having issues didn't do something correctly. Putting a custom rom on my S3 made me love my phone all over again.

    I have rooted android many times before, but when I rooted my nexus I had a ton of issues so I'm more nervous about rooting my s3. What's the best rom? And was are the features with the s3 once it's rooted?

    I've got to suggest Synergy. One of the best roms I've flashed for the S3.

    Synergy is nice. It's like stock with more features. I have had some issues with lag but I installed it a few days after I bought the device so I didn't have much time on a stock Rom. Give it a go, not much to lose.

    I flashed synergy but wanted more.

    So....

    I just flashed hyperdrive . Only thing that isn't working is the camera and I didn't have the time to figure it out today.

    And the camera didn't work on synergy either.

    There was a ota waiting for me but I declined it.

    Love it so far seems fast.

    My hubby had the same issue with his camera when he flashed synergy as well. I have synergy and I don't have any issues. I think the issue is caused by the flashing process. There has got to be a setting we are over looking when we pick what we want installed. That is the only explanation I can come up with.

    I think your right. I might redo the installation to and Pick more instead of taking the Developers choice.

    I def think its something I did.

    I am liking Hyperdrive alot.

    I'll have to give that flash method a try. I always do a custom install and I've never had an issue on my phone.

    I have redone the installation 5 times and no luck getting the camera to work.

    But it doesn't seem seem to work with synergy or carbon rom.
