    If you're talking about wifi hotspots. It doesn't require a new rom. Root with the stock rom and an app called wifi tether should do the trick.
    That's what I've tried with many different setting Profiles(Auto, Generic ICS/JB, S3, S2, Galaxy Nexus) and changed the setup method to Netd-Mdc(master)...anything I'm missing? Thanks...

    I have a question, is it recommended that I have an external sd card? Also, I am used to jailbreak and I know there are different softwares that jailbreak. Is Odin the only software that roots androids? I know that roms are different but is there a website with many roms where I can check out which ones are stable and stuff? I got a gs3 from Rogers Canada thanks

    Odin is the only way to root the sprint and at&t gse. I believe the Rodgers and at&t are the same. You should be careful when you are in the forums and make sure you don't download anything not for you specific phone and carrier.

    I have a sprint gs3 and if I were to try and install an at&t gs3 rom, I would brick my phone. I have made how to root guide in the at&t forum for the at&t gs3. The procedure is the same but the files you flash are different.

    Please be careful, the only true bricks have came from people flashing the wrong carrier roms on their phones.

    It's not required but as you start doing things like roms and backups, you will find an external sdcard a very good investment.

    The procedure below is more up to date. The video is a good guide for reference but use this guide for the files needed.

    i just got my bran new sprint gs3. it's my first android device. first thing i did was root it. then i installed wifi tether/ treve mod. i'm able to connect to my phone's wifi and use the sprint internet. good so far. what's annoying is that every so often the app will say "What the hell! Your phone takes back control over the wifi interface. Immediate tethering-shutdown NOW!" and it turns the tethering off. is there any work-around that? i get that when i get a text, or when i press the button to turn the screen on. basically anything will trigger it. it's really annoying and am pondering of going back to my palm pre because i could have the tether app running all night on that device.

    Hello Tim , tyvm for your videos links and excellent reviews. In the past I've rooted dozens of S2's many diff roms b/u with titanium.
    On to my problem, following the vid, for S3 installing Cf, worked perfectly with root, the unfortunate happened, Su , accidentally uninstalled, horrible, no root access, no rom mgr. No titanium, can't boot into recovery, only access is download. Tried reinstalling twice, not happening, 3x on custom.

    Anyone have any idea's? ??

    Thanks Paul

    If you can't boot into recovery, I think your only real option is to install the stock ROM via Odin, and then reroot and start over.
