Thanks a lot for the help. I have only rooted once or twice b4 so I have ver less knownledge about it, so please bare with me

Ow and I am going to flash CM 11 directly. So I hope I can proceed with philz according to the above thread.
If it was only that easy on S3 would save a lot of trouble ..yep follow instructions in thread and use PhilZ .tar.md5 not the zip file and if you are flashing CM 11 you do not need to root the rom is already rooted.

(1) First rule of flashing roms BACK UP YOU EFS!!
(2) 2nd Rule of flashing roms SEE 1ST RULE!!

(3) EFS Issue look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uding-t2393289
(4) Rescue Firmware look here >> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...35&postcount=6

Okieee bro
But... again....what is the difference between flashing in odin and recovery? So for any future process I can avoid all these doubts.

Searched online. Couldn't find anything that tells the difference.

Without giving you a long explanation you flash custom roms in recovery (.zip files) and stock roms (.tar) in odin and same for recoveries.

Ow ok ok...thats explains a bit
Thanks.

Something is tempting me to try it out. Lol. If it works, i will report it here and it will help other s3 users too. At the same time, something prevents me from doing it. I get a feeling of bricking my device. Then I will have to fix that too

Before I do something like that, can u predict if it may work since the same method worked for the N7000 or can u tell me if have you tried it before? (Please tell me if I am annoying u, it doesn't matter )

If you mean flashing through stock recovery no!! N7000 a different device Brick comes to mind I think you need to read the stickies a bit more if you are thinking of doing things like that!!
