Pry your GS3 from the iron grip of Verizon and ROOT!

I've found the whole process to be confusing because there are a ton of things that you can do. I think no matter what (and please correct me if I am wrong) that you should root your phone. Do your research and make sure that you are confident on what needs to be done, because you don't want to end up with a brick.

Then you need to choose what type of changes you want to make to your phone. Each ROM will do something different.

@ first I was very apprehensive about rooting my s3.
Now with All the tweaks I absolutely love my phone. I just keep finding new great tweaks. Xda forums really helps slot too. You must read read read again if you want smooth rooting experience

The first thing I thought after finally rooting my s3 was... why the hell didn't I do this sooner!!!! I've become a flashaholic now I've never looked back.

When i 1st rooted my thunderbolt i was apprehensive. I m now a full fledge flasholic n when i got my S3 i couldnt wait to root it. Speed, better battery life , backup capability free wifi tether are some of the benefits. My wife has an iphone 5 and she iz content 4 me it has to be a droid!

I was apprehensive at first, but I decided to take the plunge and root and I couldn't be happier. Especially with how fast AOSP roms are on the S3.
Current Phones:
OnePlus One 64GB Sandstone Black (Daily driver)
Google Nexus 5
Moto X Dev

Previous Phones:
Samsung Galaxy S4 Dev Edition VZW - Bricked and samsung told me to go pound sand

Do your research so you fully understand how root works and how to do it then go for it. It opens a whole new world for those who like to tinker and always have the newest firmware.

The first thing I do when I get a new device is root it before I do anything else with it.

DONATE TO ME
It is definatly worth it. I could not have imagined having any modern android smartphone without root. Galaxy S3 for sure because there are so many developers and options.
