    I was planning to wait for Jelly Bean to come out via my carrier update but it looks like it will definitely take a few more months to come out, so I would like to root my International S3 to install Jelly Bean (and also get the many benefits of rooting). Has anyone here done it? Is there a good article/tutorial available that shows how to do it on a Mac?

    Thanks in advance!

    One suggestion would be to do away with the mac completely, root your phone and install mobile odin pro, and then install the fimware using the phone. Other option would be to bootcamp into windows and then do it from there.

    Thanks for the info. Mobile Odin Pro is $5 bucks, I rather not pay if it is possible. I have Windows XP and 7 on virtual machines but I was suggested this article on another board which explains how to do it on a Mac:

    Will try it later today.

    Thanks, I rooted my S3 and installed the latest Cyanogenmod 10 with Jelly Bean. I followed the steps in the link I posted above and also the instructions on this thread:

    [ROM][GT-I9300][4.1.2] CyanogenMod 10 Nightly Builds - xda-developers

    Went by quite smoothly, having fun now with a more pure Android experience and a faster phone!
