    Default If I root my galaxy s3, can I get ICS back as OS?

    Pretty much what the title says - not liking Jelly Bean. Right now my phone says "Mobile network not found" and spent 110 mins on phone w/ Verizon last night to no result. Just wondering if I do the root thing, can I reinstall ICS? Thanks

    Thanks gollum-- I don't know if I can go through all that quite honestly, its pretty scary for me. When they say you have no data -- you still have your acct with say, Verizon and all the phone number and connection right? I think i could start from scratch but I just want to make sure I'd have the ablity to make a call right away. By data, do they mean your contacts and pictures or media and such?

    I'm sorry I wouldn't know much about it, then process is so much more complicated than what it should be because of Verizon being noobish and locking the boot loader.

    I have the sprint model, not the Verizon. I would suggest asking your question on the thread I referenced
