Samsung Galaxy S3
Now I have the dilemma of rooting the Note 3 on MI7 firmware... I don't have the greatest T-Mobile reception at the moment, so I would like a ROM that supports WiFi calling. I don't need to go to KitKat at the moment, so I can wait until the official OTA comes out.
Things I don't like about the Note 3:
The heavy bloat - over a gig of RAM is used with basically 1 active app (Gmail)? Seems iffy. I like S-Note, but not the Samsung Hub, S Health, ChatOn, and the other bloat that turns the phone into a slug.
I also don't really like the "splish splash" haptic feedback sounds, I know you can change them while being rooted.
I think I would be perfectly happy with a 4.3 Stock-based Rom, maybe with an Aroma installer, that keeps WiFi calling, S-Pen, and makes it run faster and smoother.
I am kind of concerned about the KNOX counter, but I tend to be notoriously cautious with my phones. My last issue was in 2009, when my Droid's power button went kaput. I owned my S3, and I didn't even really have a scratch on it... I also have faith that developers could maybe find a way to reverse it, but when I talked to my local T-Mobile rep, he said that he "Couldn't care less" in regards to rooting with the JUMP! program, so I think I could be set there.
So, I just want a flat out, simple answer to:
What's the best way to root?
Do you realistically think the KNOX will be cirumvented in the future?
What recovery and stock-based rom is recommended?
Thanks for your time
