Greetings, I grabbed the Root66 T999_UVALJ4 and used ODIN to flash the update.

All went well but I noticed that some of the stock apps that were installed with the update I cannot seem to find to delete. Apps like Google+ & Messenger, Google Play Books/Movies/TV, & S Suggest.

I usually use Root Explorer to delete unwanted apps but I can't seem to find these apps under SYSTEM/APP folder.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Otherwise everything went better than expected.

EDIT - FasterFix does not work anymore but oh well.

Google+ is PlusOne.apk
S Suggest is SSuggest.apk

G+ Messenger is built into Google+, they should both be gone when you remove it.
Play Store Books/TV/Video is built into the Play Store.

You will need to remove the ones you find in /system/app, but also any that have updated will be in /data/app. You need to remove from both locations. Play Store will automatically update again, so unless you completely remove the PhoneSky.apk, you cant get rid of it.

Isn't PhoneSky the Play Store?

Much appreciated..

EDIT: Nevermind. I got it covered. Thanks for the assist.

Ok, I have been out of the loop for a while, since first getting the SIII. I downloaded the pre-rooted firmware, and loaded it successfully via Odin. However, the phone is still prompting me to download the OTA update, which fails of course, because I am using CWM. Do I need to download the OTA from this thread as well? Will that work with CWM?

Yup. Itll work with cwm if you download and flash manually. Or you cam odin the root66 version of the updated fw.

Right. I loaded the firmware with Odin, and it worked (shows the update in 'About'), but it is still prompting me to install the OTA update. Is this correct?

Which version did you use? UVALJ4 is the latest build. If you flashed that you shouldnt be getting an update let it run and itll fail. Then you should be good to go.
If you flashed UVALEM or UVALH2 then yes you would get an update notice.

I loaded 'UVALJ4.' Ok, I let it try and fail, and now it is gone. Thank you.
