Lost and new to rooting
Ok, I hope that this post doesn't just instantly get bashed or ignored for its nature, but I feel like I'd waste so much more time just fumbling through the forum trying to find something relevant if I had to do this on my own. So, hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. Basically, while overseas my Sprint s3 had to get rooted to work, but now that I'm back in the states I'd like to properly root my phone for functions like wifi tethering.
At the present this is what is on my phone.
-clockworkmod recovery v188.8.131.52
-android version 4.1.1
My main questions would be the following?
1.Can I have the latest version of android and still have my phone rooted, and can this be done with what presently on my phone?
2.How do I remove the present clockworkmod recovery (or should I), for something better?
3.What is generally considered the best set up for the sprint s3 at the moment?
Thanks in advance.
