Mods for the Jellybean OTA on the Verizon Galaxy S3 (mostly Root Required) - Link to Kinda Crap Mods
I do not take credit for the following mods. Most of them I discovered through reading through threads on different sites and just thought I would share some of the things that I have learned and am using.

Smartphone Solution: Root Verizon Galaxy S3 SCH-I535 Jelly Bean I535VRBLK3
Remove Persistent Wifi Notification and change System Colors, Toggles, Clock location and battery symbols and more:
Kinda Crap Mods.
Go to the following link:
[MOD][VRBLI5/J1/K1/K3][AROMA] Kinda Crap Mods 2.6 (Updated 12/8/2012) - xda-developers
Download the newest file (2.6 as of todays date)
Reboot into Recovery and flash the zip. As per his instructions and my testing, ONLY DO THIS IN CLOCKWORK MOD and not TWRP Recovery.
When you install the zip it will launch Aroma installer and let you select all of your options (a lot of things to choose from).
After instillation is complete Reboot and enjoy.
To Change toggles there is an icon in the app drawer called Lidroid Settings.
Note - This will ask you specifically what type of device you have and will work with any Touchwiz Jellybean (choices for Deoxed and Oxed)
Put Normal Ringtones (from Galaxy Nexus) on the Phone:
Unzip the following:
You now have a folder called ‘GNex Ringtones’
Place it’s contents (folders called ‘ringtones’, ‘alarms’, and ‘notifications’) onto your SD Card.
Using Root Explorer (or similar) Navigate to the newly created folders that are on your SD Card and select to ‘Move’ them (one at a time)
Navigate to System/media/audio and complete the move
It will ask you if you would like to merge the folders (since they already exist)
Repeat Steps until all three folders are moved.
Note – If you copy and paste them instead of moving them you will have duplicate ringtones/alarms/notifications. This is fixable by then deleting them off of the SD Card
Note2 – You could just leave them on the SD Card and not move them to System/media/audio and they will work but I prefer to have them on the device
Remove PowerOn, PowerOff, Charger connected and Camera Shutter sounds:
Using Root Explorer (or similar) navigate to System/media/audio/ui
Rename ‘PowerOn.ogg’ to ‘PowerOn.ogg.disabled’
Rename ‘PowerOff.ogg’ to ‘Powerff.ogg.disabled’
Rename ‘Charger_Connection.ogg’ to ‘Charger_Connection.ogg.disabled’
Rename ‘Shutter.ogg’ to Shutter.ogg.disabled’
Rename ‘Shutter_multiple.ogg’ to ‘Shutter_multiple.ogg.disabled’
Note – To re-enable these sounds just change the name back.
Note2 – You can do this to any UI sound
Change the lock/unlock/touch drip sounds to the sounds of the Nexus(7):
Copy the following .ogg’s to your SD Card:
Using Root explorer (or similar) navigate to where you placed these files.
Doing each sound individually, select ‘Move’
Navigate to System/media/audio/ui and complete the move
Now long press on the sounds you just placed and change its permissions to RW/R/R
Repeat for each sound
Note – If you want, first navigate to the sounds and rename them to lock.ogg.disabled (and so on) so that later you can revert back to the drip sounds
Add the JellyBean Keyboard to your phone:
Copy the following file to your SD Card:
Reboot into recover and flash the .zip
Reboot and now you have the JellyBean keyboard on your phone
Note – Alternatively, you could just download one form the play store but I like the official one better.
Attached, please find some screenshots to show what some of the mods do, and to better understand the changing of the permissions.
I am running every single on of these mods and have had no issues, no force closes, no lag whatsoever.
If you have any mods that you use for the Official Jellybean OTA for the Verizon Galaxy S3 post them here.
