I rooted but when i check for updates i get

Is this because i installed a custom kernel?

Aren't you on the most updated stock version of android? I don't think 4.1.2 is available for anyone who is not on a different rom

I heard another thread about the modified thing, not sure about it much tho

Btw, glad to see you finally rooted, download some ad blocking stuff and utter

I loooove utter

Right ill have to find a way to reverse it when 4.1.2 comes out man.
Want me some of that multi screen lol. Thought it was only if i changed rom or (edit) recovery that i couldnt get updates.
Might just go cm10 :) :beer:

Cool jst had a look. It doesnt seem to require root.
Il check it out 2moro but doubt itl understand me lol.... english call centres have a hard time ;)

I believe you can. And even.if you can't it kind of defeats the purpose. You can download a Rom with the update which is more efficient and faster any way. Plus you can get things before everyone else.

Multiscreen certainly wont be on a custom rom before an unbranded global s3 gets it as its part of TW.
Think ive dicided to go CM10 anyway.
Ive got CWM now so can i just download CM10 to my sd (ext or int sd), wipe everything then flash it?
Or do i not have to do a wipe?

You can be kies updates but at the moment you can't get ota updates... but you will soon.

Get 'triangle away' (costs in store free from xda)
Rest the counter using triangle away
Factory reset
Restore


It now thinks you never touched the bootloader so will do ota, and is still rooted
