    Related question to clarify, if I'm running a custom ROM (FreeGS3), I need to revert to stock everything (recovery/rom) in order to receive the OTA update right?

    Let me see if I can answer both of your questions...

    If your phone is 100% Stock Unrooted without any of the required bloatware removed and stock recovery, you should be able to get the ota without issue. We have seen people completely stock still have issue however few.

    If you are rooted, have the stock recovery and haven't deleted any files it's looking for, you will be able to accept the update but may lose root. Get the ota rootkeeper from the play store and save your root. you can also use it to temporarily disable root if it makes you feel better.

    If you are rooted and have a stock rom with a custom recovery there will be a way (most likely within hours of the release) for you to update and keep root.

    If you are on a custom rom there will no way for you to get the update until your ROMs developer updates it.

    I am rooted on the Spring GS3 with the Wicked Sensations ROM..if I install OTA Rootkeeper, can I update to Jelly Bean and then re-root to Wicked Sensations whenever I want? Or do I need to restore one of my earlier Nandroid backups?

    Thanks for the help

    I don't know if this helps at all but, I rooted using the steps Skunkape60 posted, the one with the touch enabled recovery. Today, I manually downloaded the update for JB, used rootkeeper to backup root, then did the update. When it was done updating, it took me back to the touch enabled recovery, I chose to reboot and got a screen among me if I wanted to restore my root, I said yes and all is good. Everything works, updated to JB, root is good, battery life is good, etc.

    I think you'll have much better luck asking in the Galaxy Tab forum than the Galaxy S3 forum. Whatever you do, do NOT try to root using instructions for a different device than the one you own.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    If I've helped you, please click the "Thanks" button.
