    Well, whatever you decide to do, I highly advise AGAINST installing an OTA on a rooted device.... Installing a ROM may seem daunting at first, but it really is a fairly simple task once you've got the procedure down.

    Anything that's of real importance to me (emails and contact info) are stored with Google anyway, so I awhile ago I just adopted a cavalier attitude towards the possibility of having to wipe my device...but that's certainly not to say I don't back my stuff before I flash any ROMs!

    Verizon said their version of GS3 isn't getting JB. They said the difference between JB and ICS isn't enough to justify the manhours in adapting it to the phone.

    I heard it from the cat next next door. Damn cat was lying, but figured I'd torment the few who are dying to get something that won't really make much of a difference on their phone.

    I always checked the forums and everyone said they were fine accepting the ota while rooted.

    I am going to do it now. I still have titanium to back everything up between rooting and loading the new rom so I shouldn't lose anything. Actually, I still have some data I never restored from my bionic since I never rooted my s3.

    Truth is, there really isn't that much of a difference at all. Google Now is pretty neat, even useful at times...but it's more or less a novelty and pretty much the only major change I even notice, outside of minor things here and there.

    Does "Project Butter" make a big difference on the S3 or is it like a gimmick?

    I don't think it's a gimmick at all. But, until (we) on Verizon get it I'm not sure we'll see a huge difference since the S3 is incredibly fast on ICS.

    I think AT&T decided to release it after they found out they were ranked worst in customer service...unsurprisingly

    I for one can't wait to get back to were I already was. After switching from Sprint S3 with JB for several months this is like giving a kid candy and then taking it away after only one bite!

    Come on VW please don't force me to take my hole company to AT&T!

    Don't worry, Sprint may have released theirs a while ago, but no one on their network has finished downloading it yet. We'll still beat them to the install.
    If you are inclined to spend a lot of money and want a pretty trophy with which to pass the next few years of your life that talks to you in a condescending voice, can't navigate to save its life, expects full control over all you do, demands $13 for a $3 purchase, allegedly has a single recessed button, needs an expensive computer and a credit card to do anything, hates your music and has purses designed just for it...

    I'm sure VZW is working 24/7 on the update. They need to make sure all of their bloatware works just as it should.

    I know this is probably a very stupid question, so please be easy on me, but does someone know where I can find very simple step-by-step instructions in lamens terms to root/unlock the bootloader and install things such as this Clean ROM on my Verizon Galaxy S3? I would love to root, but I also can't afford to brick the phone so I want to make sure that I am doing everything exactly right.

    Same here. The Incredible was so easy to root and install ROMs. Everyone says the S3 is too, but it's so different I'm a little scared to screw it up.

    Yep...A girl I work with has it on her phone, and other than Google Now and some Cloud setting, there's really no difference with TW set on top of it. She's on Sprint. If I was running AOSP ROMs, I'd want it though. Instead, I just use Nova Prime on an already smokin' phone and it keeps me happy. I've never had a phone this long, unrooted and ROM'd.

    Yep I bookmarked it. I actually have somewhere near 10 threads here and on XDA bookmarked on how the root this phone. Maybe that's the problem there are too many ways or routes to root! In fact I just convinced myself that is why I have not taken the plunge - too many routes to root (and ROM).

    I felt the same way... just too many ways to root and rom. But I went for it today and it is completely worth it. I used method 2 in the sticky and loaded CleanRom 5.0

    Now I wish I didn't wait so long for tthe official update from verizon.

    I could not disagree more!! Every fiber in my body says that JB will bring world peace, stop global hunger and unite mankind like never before.
    At the moment my S3 with ICS is virtually useless, if JB does not come soon I will throw the phone away, sue Verizon and shut my company down just to spite Verizon (since they are our carrier of choice).
