Installing new ROM on a rooted S3...procedural questions...
Hello, guys and gals,
I rooted my S3 about five months ago, and have been reading some posts on a bunch of ROMs. I want to install one, but I am running into several different opinions on the proper steps involved. I have all the apps onboard like Superuser and the like already.
One thing I notice now with my stock ROM is that it can be slow. So much so that some apps may be slow to open. I figure that this is ROM-related and that a slim, faster ROM would make the phone's apps faster to execute. And, I may also get some bells and whistles for easier general use in the process.
Now...the thing about ROM-ing that worries me is the part where you have to erase some old files during the process. Kinda creeps me out. I sure don't want to have a brick here! And, also, if I get to the point where I might have several ROMs installed on the phone, I can't find a file or thread that describes how to change between ROMs, other than flat-out erasing one and installing another.
Could someone on the list please point me to a good thread which describes the download process for changing ROMs, which files are required and where on the phone (like the SD card root or the main memori root) these are placed? I've been building my own PCs since the PC-XT days and I remember Windows 2.0, so I've been there and done that. Just want a good reliable set of instructions.
