No problem... The goal was to put it out an easy to follow guide. I hope I succeeded.

My AT&T SGS3 is on the UPS truck for delivery this afternoon.
Looking forward to rooting.
Do you recommend I let Kies update the stock SGS3 to the newer AT&T sanctioned update first, or just root the phone out of the box and install the stock/deodexed 4.1.1 (or even something more exotic) off this forum instead?

(I'm coming from a Gingerbread Samsung Infuse (nice but underpowered phone) and want to transfer my apps/experience across as painlessly as possible; I'm half considering just rooting and Titanium Un-Backingup my apps/data and dealing with Kies, other ROMs etc in the New Year - but it is encouraging to see how incredibly active the dev community for the GS3 is)

Either way is a good choice.

Done! And copying my Titanium Backup to a spare 2GB SD Card for a restore.

Thanks for the super convenient root!

There is no reason to reset your flash counter until you are ready to go back to stock. This phone checks at boot to see if you're stock. Go to the unroot guide I posted to see how it's done. You don't need anything but the phone to reset the counter.

So I finally grew a pair and attempted root. Excellent guide you've made here Skunk Ape, you really made it easy. It was so easy, I actually had to try a root checked app afterwards to see if I did it right!
