Ok, please don't kill me for asking a question that's probably been asked a million times by other users. I've googled the topic and am still confused. I just bought a S3 (SCH I535) used about a week ago and it looks like it has the most recent OTA update which, from what I understand, is unrootable, and possibly unable to take a saferoot option. My about section lists the following: Android 4.3, Baseband I535VRUCNC1, Kernel 3.0.31. When I try to update, it says none are available, and that the most recent update this phone has had is ml1_to_nc1.

The Samsung stock ROM just sucks, so I'm hoping I have some sort of option. I guess worst case scenario, 4.4 will roll out eventually and might be somewhat improved (fingers crossed). Any help would be awesome.
