[Q] galaxy s 3 advice required
Dear fellow members
Device :samsung galaxy s 3 gt-i9300
android version : 4.1.2
baseband version :xxemg4
build number jzo54k.i9300xxemg4
I am a newbie to rooting and custom rom flashing.
Recently I decided to install a custom rom in my phone as i was tired of the slowness and the lag from the samsung orignal jb version 4.1.2
I started of by rooting my phone on 27/9/13 usin odin 3 v 1.85 and the file CF-Root-SGS3-v6.4.tar by selecting it in the pda options. i read the intrustions from android rooting .com .
but when i began to create a back up it gave me a warning in cwm manager v 3.60 that this version of cwm manager should be used with cf-cwm v1.1 or newer. it appears you are running a different recovery.various features have been disabled.
further when i restarted my fone in to creating back up mode it said cannot mount path.
Now i want a cool new custom rom in my phone and i dont want to screw up my phone.
I need advice on what should i do next?
is backing up my phone is really that important ?
now that my phone is rooted should i flash a custom rom?
if so which custom rom is the best in my case scenario?
i am completely new to this and i immediately stopped after doing what i just explained above.
Thankyou in advance for your suggestions and help.
