I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and since then im ok with it, but now i got a good deal for a Samsung Galaxy S3 Gt-i9300 (i was thinking of a getting the S5 but still waiting for every quirks to settle down) , so a stepping stone in the Samsung Direction, :laugh
Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-i9300
Android ver. 4.0.4
its from United Arab Emirates
Status: i Rooted the Phone Using Sir Chainfires thread here ( For Root ) then i installed a CWM here ( For CWM ) ~
1.) Is there a more simple way to Rooting and Installing a CWM?? (tips too)
2.) This phone has an Unlocked Bootloader, is it Possible to Lock it by FLashing a Stock ROM??
( i don't want to Lock it, i just want to know, cause some posts declare that their bootloaders got Locked when Flashing a Stock Rom)
Installing a Custom Rom for Xperia Play is usually Posted by the Creators of the Rom,set of Instructions on what Ver. of android you have to be on, and what Kernel your Suppose to be Using, so,
3.) Here in the Dev. Section, i don't see threads for Instructions for that, (it's kinda confusing for newbies) do I have to be on 4.2 to use a 4.2 Custom rom??
4.) Does the S3 have Custom Kernels?? should i Use custom kernels for S3??
5.) Differences of this SECTIONS??
Galaxy S III Android Development
Android development for the Samsung Galaxy S III
Galaxy S III Original Android Development
Original development for the Samsung Galaxy S III
I've red on some Threads that you Can't Revert Back to ICS if your on Kitkat (OFFICIAL ROM)
6.) can i Revert to ICS even though i upgraded to Kitkat or Jellybean?? (just downgrade to any Firmware i want)
Some Posts and Videos i saw have used Phone and CSC on their ODin
7.) What are those exactly (in layman's term) ?? and can someone link me to a nice guide of Odin (got a few but a bit complicated for me )
Some Threads say that i have to be in a certain Version of CWM for me to use it on a higher Ver. of Android
8.) how to tell what those Ver. of CWM for Certain Ver. of Android??
9.) is the method for Rooting ICS , JB and KitKat Different??
10.) Can my Old Titanium Backups work with Newer/Higher Ver. of android or ver. of Titanium Backup
that's it, any help and answers to this questions will be of Great Help, and links to would be Epic, THanks in ADvance,
