Rooted before realising there was an update.
Bought a brand new gt-i9300 unlocked in the uk. yesterday.
I rooted it first, assuming I'd get a non-stock rom on the phone, but in my digging only found people with problems on the roms I'm familiar with (latest CM, Android Revolution). I'm hesitant to put a buggy rom on, so will have to use stock for the time being, definitely want root access though.
The issue I have, is that as I rooted, now I see the mb5>mg4 ota ugrade won't work. I've got kies on my mac (so I know that's the update I need).
Can anyone advise - should I:
a) just update to mg4 using kies, then re-root? (is there an issue with overwriting the IMEI / EFS here, or am I confused)?
b) return to stock (reset the counter), unroot, update, then re-root?
c) leave as is on MB5?
d) keep looking for a rom that's got a more recent android (I'd prefer stock rather than touchwiz) - is there a stable option?
advice appreciated, as I'm a little lost.
