    Nope, you just flash over it like how you flashed it the first time. That's it. But since MOAR is so customizable, you may have to go through the Aroma installer again.
    AS a precaution, I would make a Nandroid of your current setup, just in case.

    It depends on how you plan to install 4.3. The OTA simply won't install over a custom ROM. So to install the OTA you would have to unroot and go back to stock. But if you install the OTA you're stuck. You will never be able to flash another custom ROM, or go back to 4.1.2.

    If you want to install the pre-rooted 4.3 ROM available on XDA, then yes, you flash it in recovery like any other ROM. But make sure you have the most current version of your recovery (e.g., CWM or TWRP), and it is advisable to do a clean flash (wipe cache, dalvik, data before flashing).

    Since yoy are running MOAR, you have to use a custom recovery. Either CWM or TWRP. You need to make sure which ever one you are using is on its most current version.

    It isn't possible to have the most current version of custom recovery if you have a newer GS3 without some modification though. I've tried to find the latest versions of both TWRP and CW that will work on my GS3 to no avail.

    The most current version of TWRP for the sprint galaxy s3 can be found here :

    Version 2.6.3.1 will work on the newer GS3's.

    No need to be snarky about it. I'm well aware of how to use Google and what the current version of TWRP is.

    I've been all over XDA with little love for those of us with newer GS3s. The thread on XDA with the most recent TWRP versions didn't work on my device (no storage partitions detected) and I installed 2.6.3.1. I ended up reverting back to the version I was on previously. I'll attempt what you linked, but I highly doubt it will work since I have already attempted to install that version. I'll report back with the results.

    *Update*


    Well...this didn't take long. I can confirm that the latest .tar file posted on TWRP's download page (which I already attempted previously) does not work properly on newer GS3s. The storage partitions do not mount. Please, don't post information stating these work unless you know they will work. It's a real PITA, especially if a user doesn't have access to Odin at work to fix a non-working recovery.

    *Update 2*

    Just an FYI to those with a newer GS3 looking at TWRP for their custom recovery...you can flash version 2.6.3.0 without issue.

    Try Philz recovery: [i93xx][CWM Advanced Edition] PhilZ Touch - xda-developers

    I haven't tried it, but I believe I've seen posts indicating it worked on current S3s. You won't be able to use any of your TWRP backuos, of course.

    Recovery is what you use to flash a ROM. You generally get to recovery by powering up with Vol UP, Home & Power. If you're that much of a noob, p;ease be very careful flashing ROMs, so you don't brick your phone. You might want to read this:

    Thanks for posting this link meyerweb. I think I'm a bit committed to TWRP for the time being since I have several recoveries stored in that format. It isn't a huge deal not being able to run the latest version, but I would eventually like to be able to do so. I am half tempted to try and figure out the workaround on the additional kernel flag myself in order to install the newest version, but this is well beyond my skill level. I guess one needs to start somewhere though.

    Well, saying "Google is your friend..." is at best dismissive of what I stated earlier and certainly intimates that I posted without having done the least bit of research.

    I'm certainly not going Alec Baldwin, but would appreciate those being "helpful" to forego the snide remarks.
