[ROM]9/20/12 LI3 Sprint Samsung Galaxy S 3 OTA (Stock/ROOTED/Odex/DeOdex/Firmware!)
This will update your software to LI3.
The update contains firmware updates as well as a Kernel update too.
The update contains a file that will reflash the stock recovery every single time you reboot your phone if the digital signature doesn't match, but I have removed it from this rooted version I'm uploading. I will upload that file separately so that you can get the stock recovery back without worrying about Odin, then from there you should be able to apply the update manually from Sprint's servers and get updated firmware. Keep in mind that if you choose to accept the OTA from Sprint, it will only apply if you have unmodified system files and an unmodified kernel.
You should only do one or the other. If you flash this rooted update, you will no longer receive an update notification from Sprint. So you will need to either revert to a nandroid backup or reflash the stock software in order to update all of the firmware.

Stock Recovery to flash in Odin: (Don't rename it.)
If you download the Stock Recovery to flash in Odin, open Odin, press PDA and point to this file. It will flash only the stock recovery, allowing you to accept the OTA and update your firmware. This method will only work if you have a Stock kernel and unmodified system files.
