Holla guys I've recently have an s3.. wonderful device, seriously, but I'm very regretful as regards the SDS issue.. unfortunately my device seems to have the "affected chip" but I love Android world and I can't stay without modding something! the problem, as I have seen, seems to be solved until fws released from 4.1.2... To be more sure, I upgraded my phone to 4.3 stock yesterday and now the fw mounted is the XXUGMK6. My phone is NOT rooted and it is branded Vodafone. In this situation the device should be "covered" (hopefully, this damned issue it's a very bad thing )... however, as I said upon, I want to install something new to speed up this wonderful device.
So let's go straight to the point: what are the bootloader, recovery and rom that have the fws fixed for SDS? What are the best ones IN THIS SENSE? (not in absolutely sense, obviously, because each bl, rec & rom is simply best until it's cooked in my opinion )
Moreover, should I remove brand before installing something? Could you tell me precise steps to do kindly?
I'll be very grateful to everyone can answer my question, really

Everything built recently (not sure how long) has the fix. Any KitKat build will have the fix, and both newest builds of CWM and TWRP do as well.
Basically, flash anything new and you're fine.

i have the sds chip also i actually had a fright a few months back when i woke up to my phone boot looping and anyway what i get to understand is that once u have a recovery and a bootloader with the latest fix u will be find... i use to use cwm thats before it bootlooped then i switched to philz cwm both right now are suppose to have the sds fix so basically after that flash any rom u want ..cause all the modern roms from 4.2 up as iv observed have the fix and havent given me any sds problem.

Another last question: I must remove brand (flashing no-brand fmw from Sammobile) before flashing custom stuff, right?
