    Default Updating a Rooted S3 to 4.3

    Hi folks,
    I did some searching on this forum and didn't find exactly what I was looking for, but my terminology might be off.

    I rooted my S3 a while back while it was running 4.1.2. No problems since rooting, except for the stupid talkback notification thing that seems to be affecting everyone.

    I want to update my OS to 4.3, but I don't know the best way to do it, since the phone is rooted. I know that I shouldn't use the pushed rom from AT&T, so I tried downloading the Archidroid rom and it seemed to install fine, but after reboot, the OS still shows 4.1.2. Not sure if I did something wrong, or....? I use Odin to do the update, fyi. I also installed the S3 Toolkit and have been using that too.

    Any help is appreciated.

    "Everybody" says not to take the OTA...but I unrooted, took the OTA and rerooted using saferoot. Google or lookup saferoot 4.3 for the AT&T GS3 on xda.

    Edit: Here is that link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2565758
    [ROOT] Saferoot: Root for VRUEMJ7, MK2, and Android 4.3
