    How do you know that it updated the data? The process completes without error but my reception does not improve. I have a USCC SGSIII and it was at 4.1.1. I thought I lost it and kinda freaked. We did find it but that lead me to get AndroidLost and Titanium backup so I was protected in future freak moments - don't care about the phone so much as the data. Therefore, I rooted. and backed everything up and started breathing normal again. All was good, everything worked fine. Then 4.1.2 came out - and I had read about the suite that would be added. I kinda wanted that. So, I did a full Titanium backup. I UnRooted (worked great). I loaded USCC 4.1.2. I didn't get the suite as we all know now - bummer. I re-rooted. I installed Titanium Backup and restored all apps and user data. All worked fine. However, my reception stinks. I have done the *228 tower update several times and it states it completed successfully but the reception doesn't get any better. I have always had excellent reception on USCC both before I got the SGSIII and after I got it. Reception only soured after the process above. So... ideas?

    If I root, do i have to load a new OS (cynogenmod 10.1?)? Or can I keep it the stock android 4.1.2? I have read in places I can load a 4.2.2, is that true?

    Root only gives you admin rights to the file system. You do not have to do anything else. There are several 4.2.2 ROMs out there, just make sure they are specific to the USC S3.

    This site seems to have found something, what do you think? What is the point of having cynogenmod 10 with android 4.2.2?
    Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean CM10.1 ROM For US Cellular Galaxy S3 SCH-R530 | Koun-IT thank you.

    If you're thinking about using CyanogenMod, I would suggest you deal directly with the official site...

    CyanogenMod | Android Community Rom based on Jelly Bean

    There's lots of good information there as to what their ROM will bring over the stock. Read up, plenty of good ROMs out there to choose from.

    I know there is a huge thread on this, but if I root, bad thing is, I void warranty, the good thing is "super user" (can delete useless bloat apps, use wifi tether, etc.). If I do not load a new OS, I will still have everything the same as far as how it works, operates, icons, apps, how it functions? Just want to be 100% sure I know what I am getting into.
    Thanks

    Root changes nothing except admin rights to the file system.

    Last one, I saw on a video that describes this entire rooting, he uses it for 4.1.1 version, mine is at 4.1.2, will that matter?

    Read back through this thread and find the S3 Toolkit. Use that to root and all will be well.

    Tried to use toolkit, but is not working. I wonder if it is because the only versions it lists is android 4.1.1?
