Default [Q] Is a Custom Rom necessary after rooting

Hi All,

I tried looking but did not get any concrete answers so, Just wanted to know if custom ROMs are necessary after rooting an S3.

I ask this as I have blown up few of my earlier phones(SG S1 and MMX A110) after various combinations of installing and removing different ROMs, Kernels etc.

So now I was hoping to find out if i just root my S3, will it function as it is now. will the stock ROM still be there, or will i have to download and install the stock ROM zip from somewhere?

I want thinking of rooting this mobile as i need USB mass storage, bloatware removal and a few RAM mgmt tools that i generally have used.

please suggest your views on this topic.

(1) all is answered in the guides if you understand the process of rooting
(2) for you explained: rooting does not delete anything, it just gives you more access, hence your stock rom will still be there, meaning you can root a stock rom and keep it or change to a custom one
