    Question Is there any way to get stock Jellybean (4.1) on my Galaxy S3 without the Samsung Skin?

    I would really like to have a CM version of Jellybean, or AOKP verson. I don't like S voice, and I'd much rather have the voice search on Jellybean. Is there a ROM out there without the Samsung skin? I seriously dislike the icons etc, and would like to have a bit more control. Thanks!

    Eclipse 2.1 is also great. the google apps are all dark-themed and look great. There's quite a good number of 4.1.2 ROMs out there now.

    You already got your answers on the plain JB ROMS and already know about CM10, but I'd like to point out something to you. What makes you think you have to run something like SVoice if you're running a skinned JB ROM? You don't have to. For example, I dumped SVoice a long time ago and have been running Google Now (Jelly Bean voice search) since an earlier Synergy ICS ROM. I'm now on a great JB ROM that's real stable (Synergy v.118), but it's a TouchWiz ROM. SVoice is still long gone and Google Now is working like a charm - just as it has been from the first day it was brought over to ICS. I even have other nice things ported over, like the Note2 camera. I understand if you simply want a plain JB version and/or don't like the Samsung icons, but don't think that you can't also have something like the Google voice search (Google Now) you seem to want.

    Sorry to OP for a quick hijack...I've got a Galaxy Nexus and might switch to an S3, is the S-voice the default voice app for voice-related stuff on the phone? I really like the voice software on my GN...

    Thanks

    On the TouchWiz Jellybean Update.... Holding down the menu key gives you gvoice.... And remember you can always place the Google search bar widgets along the top too for easy gvoice access

    As others have pointed out, it's easy enough to get rid of s-voice. You also can instal a different launcher like Apex or Nova (or many others) that you can use any icons that you want and won't look like Touchwiz (but you can still keep the Touchwiz features like the motion controls, the admittedly nice camera and other Touchwiz things). No rooting or using another ROM required.

    Just pointing it out as an option if the primary reason is the look of Touchwiz.You can still make much of it look however you want without abandoning Touchwiz.

    I'm going to third this. I run CleanROM which has Aroma installer so when I get to the Samsung apps section I deselect everything and have it install Nova instead of touchwiz. Yes you still get the core TW stuff but honestly it's not THAT bad. If you really hate the lockscreen just set up pin/swipe lock or install WidgetLocker.

    You're on the Verizon forum, but either way, no.

    "Stock" Android with updates from Google only happens with Nexus devices. The stock OS isn't going to have drivers for your phone.

    Closest you can easily get, is to install an AOSP ROM, like CM or AOPK ... who provide their own updates.
