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.

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.

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.
