If you have played with your Galaxy S3 for a very long time.......now the time has come to make it ready for some freaky roms and tweaks.
FIRST THING TO DO IS
1.ROOT your android phone
http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/root-galaxy...y-bean-1435664

Follow the rules posted here.
2.Install Custom Rom,I prefer CMhttp://download.cyanogenmod.com/?dev...0&type=nightly
Many of the users don't like to use VANILLA UI after using TOUCHWIZ UI.
So,I prefer instaling MIUI.Even if MIUI is based on older version of Android,it is still one of the best custom rom I have ever used for a phone.\
Here is the link for it too
http://="http://enbigota.d.miui.com/...b96d5_4.1.zip"
This version of MIUI is based on Android 4.2.2
3.FLASH Philz recovery

4.Now that you are bored,flash the stock firmware and sell your S3 and grab a new phone.

When I first received my phone,I was very curious to flash Custom Roms,tweaks.But after making all these things,I sold my phone and bought a Nexus 4

If you are on here, you rooted and flashed a custom rom well before you thought the s3 was an old phone

100% root your phone and get rid of the ugly stock OS IMO.

How long did you used your s3? And how much do you know about it.

When I read the title I expected something like:
1. Take a camera
2. Take a hammer
3. Start recording while you hit your phone
4. Throw it as high as possible
