Changing the kernel will give you a whole lot of new options too you should try it

well, i've tried it during the whole day and i plugged/unplugged the charger many times
it worked fine (thats after reflashing the stock rom 4.3), after that i did notice one time it was plugged for about 20 mins and no change of battery precentage. so that got me worried..

i download "galaxy charging current" to see the values of the charging and it said
max: 600
now:999
avg:600

now im just trying 2 get suspocious maybe its the charger after all it seem maybe alittle deffected even tho its new..

it does seem to be working alot better after reflashing my rom
so im gonna go ahead and try a diffrent charger again

and also do i need 2 wipe before that

Yes you can flash it on the 4.3 rom
Wiping dalvic cache and cache should be good enough
And here's the link
http://boeffla.df-kunde.de/sgs3/boef...nel/Test_jb43/
You should also follow his thread for future updates
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1964572
And read through the kernel options and what they do here :
http://boeffla-kernel.de/index.php/kernel-settings
You can also pm me if you need any help with those kernel options

I had this problem with my S3 using the stock charger. Sometimes it switched back to USB charging mode which was slow and sometimes couldn't even keep up while gaming. I fixed it by buying an other generic usb charger (try a cheap bulky one).

thanks! appearntly the charger i purchased from the same store arent genuine so that might be it..
i tried a couple of friend's genuine chargers and it worked great..

im gonna purchase one like that somewhere.. maybe ill find on ebay
and test it for few weeks see if it works fine

so i guess in conclusion this mobile is very sensitive toward non-genuine chargers..

but wat did u mean by "generic usb charger" exactly..?
like the ones that r ac to usb adapters and i just connect the usb cable?

Maybe generic is not the right word. English is not my native language : ) What I mean is just a regular all-purpose (not necessarily branded) power supply with a USB port. Look for the maximum current output. That should match or (preferably) exceed 500 mA. Don't look for a iPhone compatible charger. These look tempting with their 2.1 A current rating but your S3 could fail to recognize the potential of the power supply and switch back to USB charging mode. Android phones recognize an AC power supply by their data lines being electrically shorted. With iPhones that's a bit different if I recall correctly.

I partly agree with your conclusion. I do think the S3 is very picky with power supplies, but I don't think a genuine charger is a guaranteed success. As stated in my previous post, my phone charges at maximum current with an unbranded charger which I bought after my original Samsung charger (the one that came with the phone) failed to achieve the same.
