Default customizing a rooted s3 after dreaded OTA 4.3

so, yes I'm an idiot. I was running cm 10.2 and it was being buggy do I flashed stock and started over, accidentally downloading 4.3 in the process. dammit.

so, I really liked the aosp look of cm, especially the notification bar, the lockscreen, etc.

can I customize the functionality of my s3 without flashing a custom rom or am I screwed?

also, Wtf can I do now that I'm rooted on 4.3? anything?

You probably want this

Read carefully as you first have to install the xposed framework.

and the xposed installer won't brick my device? what allows this to be installed safely while flashing a rom does not?

Xposed is an app (well it's the framework). It does not require flashing anything in a custom recovery or unlocking of a bootloader, it simply lets you modify the appearance or behavior of the system or other apps. Conversely, flashing a rom on our S3 requires you to have an unlocked bootloader.

No problem! I haven't used Wanam Xposed but I know it comes highly recommended for TW 4.3. I use Xposed (slightly different somehow) and there's a two step process of first installing Xposed and rebooting then installing a module that interests you then rebooting once again. It's a pretty fun utility and may be rather addicting!
