So there are no other options to apply that update without re-flashing root66?

Very quickly... Less than a minute...

I prefer mobile Odin pro myself... But have used Odin a couple of times. Sometimes after flashing I have to pull the battery and then reboot for it to work

I am at a loss, and seek any help you can offer. I recently got a brand new grey sgs3 from tmob. previously had a white one that i bought off craigslist and got the IMEI blocked on me; didn't realize that was something tmob could do. but i digress.

flashed root66 via Odin straight away. udvjla as thats what my phone came with. cwm recovery then vanilla rootbox and gapps 121212 camera doesn't work. try re-downloading and flashing many times. camera does not work. phone said "can not access camera" or something similar. searched and searched, only one guy has the problem and hes getting the same answer: re-download and re-flash, and its not working for him either. i emailed him, he responds that flashing inverted gapps worked. i tried it. cannot access camera.

alright, time to odin back to stock. no dice. stuck at samsung boot. i got out of this before on my white sgs3 by flashing stock recovery. did so, re-flashed both root66 and stock and the phone will not boot nor get into recovery, i try using odin for cwm recovery and its never able to finish, it just stops at reset.

a little long, but i wanted to give as much info as i can. luckily i can return this bad boy, but i figure since i have the time i may as well try to learn more. any help is appreciated.

UVDLJA is 4.1.1, therefore you need Gapps 20121011, not 20121212.

Try using the Odin and CWM links from my signature, see if those work for you.

Having issues with the new update, 4.1.1

Completely stock, nothing flashed etc etc

Device will reset on its own, typically when using browsers. Switched browser, same issue. Also, the screen will sometimes turn on and stay on until I reset. I've seen a couple posts about the screen problem, but no real answer. I'm starting to wonder if I have a lemon phone? But the reset problem only started after most recent OTA system update.

There's been a lot of issues with faulty power buttons. This sounds like your issue.

Re: ***Emergency Thread*** Here To Help!
But I didn't have this issue before the new update.... which is what makes me think that has something to do with it. I've had the phone since December, and the update came maybe 2 weeks ago? I can't remember but this wasn't happening before that. Maybe I'll just go into tmo...
