Default Cricket Galaxy S3 Discussion Thread

Just wanted to start up the discussion thread for the Cricket Galaxy S3 model SCH-R530C. We share models with the USCC version, but the data doesnt work correctly when a USCC build is flashed.

Heres a write-up on how to root the Cricket GS3:

Actually. The cricket GS3 is basically the USCC GS3 with a different modem. So, they're very similar. Exactly why its in this forum.

Have everything working but the camera and MMS it looks like. I'm not a dev by far so someone who knows what they're doing can do this right I'm sure.

My cousin got the cricket s3, ive been helping him out, getting rooted and cwm, now just need a real ROM. I cant seem to find any dedicated places for this phone specifically, there doesnt seem to be much dev work on it either, or am i wrong?

There isn't much work on US Cellular and MetroPCS so you can expect the same for Cricket. ShabbyPenguin is being a gentleman and devoting some time. He's already started to post on CricketUsers.

I got everything working minus MMS and camera with CM10. I think others can figure out the rest.

Yep, wondering myself if a JB TW STOCK ROM can be put on here.

I have the S3 on VZW and Stock w/ Root w/ Touch CWM. The only issue is since this is ICS and not JB yet, NFC doesn't work. (unless its just not working) Says something about it can't handle the file size in transfer.

We got it with a rebate for $330 what about you?

Stock NFC can only handle small transfers like a contact card. S-Beam will allow you to transfers photos and video but of course this will only work between Samsung devices.

One minute was enough, Tyler said, a person had to work hard for it, but a minute of perfection was worth the effort. A moment was the most you could ever expect from perfection.

Stock NFC as in ICS? Whats different than ICS NFC and JB NFC? Because I can transfer anything else with my phone. Like normal 8mp images between other JB S3's and Note 2 with JB.

Is JB NFC updated or advanced?

EDIT: NVM dont know why NFC worked before without sbeam, turned on sbeam a second ago and even transferred a video.
