    After restarting the computer and phone it eventually allowed me to drop the zip file into the root directory.

    When I rooted I immediately removed Sprint and Samsung apps and when I updated to the version before the current one I had no problems - it just reinstalled most of them. Will this update be different? I assume I'm fine because I was fine before and it restored some apps.

    Great news. Removing and re-installing drivers is the first thing i said. Yes, I updated the drivers with windows 8 compatible drivers.

    For apps that are safe to remove, you can try this thread: Apps Safe to Remove from Samsung Galaxy S3 (Sprint Version, Stock Rooted)

    To rename the backups go to the cwm folder / Backups hold press and hold the file you want to rename choose rename from the menu. Name it what you want but you can't have any spaces in the name.

    Are there any requirements that your S3 must have, such as Android version? (Mine is 4.1.1) Or anything else? Or is the only requirement that it has to be from Sprint?

    Did you read the thread? This question is answered about a dozen times in the thread.

    Simple answer. Yes, the only requirement is that you have Sprint Samsung GS3.

    If you did the return to stock earlier (ics). It will cause this. The fix is to let it receive the ota's before re rooting. Once it gets to like the 3rd or 4th ota the no sim error will disappear. Then you can restore root. BTW... the ota's will hit at every reboot.

    You said exfat. If you were on ext4, I would have told you to try it. I would have liked to know if it worked. Lol

    The instructions were easy to follow and rooted my Galaxy S3 with no problem; however, within 24 hours of rooting I get the nagging System Update required message. I know installing the update will break my Root. When I accept the install and go into Recovery mode, I immediately request a reboot with running the update. I lose my wi-fi tether (using Wi-Fi 3.2-beta2), but my apps are still requesting SuperUser permission. I can actually see the apps in the log file of SuperUser. What can I do to prevent the System Update from appearing after I root my S3?

    Skunkape you are an inspiration!

    Just to be clear so I do not ruin my uninsured device that powers internet to the pc i am rooting this with...

    I rooted previously via odin then got the JB update. No longer have root and it sucks. Am I clear in understanding that your help on page 4 of the thread is the method to re-root after the JB update if previously rooted for ICS? I apologize if the question is kinda dumb but I want to make sure before I go an brick my phone with my lack of experience.

    Also, does anyone know if tethering is still MIA for Jelly Bean?

    Skunk, Thank you in advance. After reading the thread I have much respect for you. As stated earlier, I would like to donate for your help. You deserve it.

    Actually you can root using the directions in the very 1st post of this thread. There is no difference in rooting ics and rooting Jellybean.

    There is a hacked version of jellybean available that will work with a rooted phone. There is a link in the main Sprint GS3 forum.
