For the guy having issues with rooting....

I had to try multiple times to get Saferoot to work. Try switching USB ports on your PC and trying right after you reboot your PC.

If it says "Custom" will I not be able to flash this? I'm not sure if it was attempting to root it before with 4.3 OTA ML2 installed or if it had something to do with the Avast! Anti-Theft that's still installed at the root level that I forgot to get rid of.

I've never used Odin before, so I've got some reading to do. I just want to make sure that this is even an option or if I'm screwed.

Thanks!

@MechaBouncer. My question was to other member that was trying to downgrade the modem for his phone. Don't worry.

Just an FYI to all - I did find that Odin 3.09 was the best one to use for new ppl. The buttons match the fields that need to filled in. Example - 3.09 has CSC button and that is where the CSC file goes.

I've asked this before and never really got an answer. Now that we have a viable root method for OTA ML2 I'll ask again. What is in this release that would make it worth updating from 4.2.2? Thanks in advance.

In my opinion less laggy and battery life much improved

A lot less laggy. I finally did it just because we will have to have 4.3 to get anymore updates. To me it's is worth updating.

I've hated it this far because of the root problems and GPS and WiFi drops. I'll try rooting it when I get home from work. Thanks for the info.
