Moving to an S3 from a Galaxy Nexus - questions for rooting
Hi - I am on an unlimited Verizon plan and do not want to upgrade and loose it. I'm not interested in doing any of the Best Buy or other methods people claim work.
I'm currently using a GNEX but may be able to get a free Galaxy S3.
My question is, can I root this thing and make it run stock android - basically turn it into a slightly beefier Galaxy Nexus?
I really don't hate my GNEX. The battery life sucks, and it can do some weird things sometimes, but it is still very functional and works great 98% of the time.
But if I get a S3 it would be an upgrade to me if I could basically make it into a GNEX software wise, with better hardware.
Any help appreciated. I'm sure there is plenty of info here that I can dig around and find, but I'm just looking for a straightforward answer.

Here is the Android Development section for the Verizon Galaxy S3 on XDA: Verizon Galaxy S3 Original Android Development - xda-developers
They have tons of stock roms.
You should check out some of the sticky threads for more info and guides: Stickied Threads [9.2.13] - xda-developers
So yes, it is possible to put stock Android on it.
