question to all:
I busted my SCH-I605 and got another on from verizon. The new on had the 4.3 update so now i am stuck with a locked bootloader. My old one was rooted and i ran different roms. I like that I was able to change things on it. Since the bootloader is locked is it still worth rooting?

It up to you.. rooting it you can change files, theme and other things, but the problem is no safe recovery.. so if you bootloop, you would have to Odin restore =/.. I had a 4.3 locked bootloader a few weeks ago and rooted and messed around..but once I bootlooped once..I didn't start the process over..
You could swap the motherboard.. You can find 4.1.2 online and switching them is a pretty simple process..
