    So I got the new update yesterday. I have nothing against the stock rom, But it broke my tethering app. I found a way to root my S3. [GUIDE] Root for Jelly Bean OTA ***UPDATED*** - xda-developers
    No problem there. I was looking to install a version of Paranoid Android, But using Goomanager this was not an available rom. (Is there one for the S3) I tried a few other roms and they all looked kind of chunky to me. A few had a flicker effect when you went to the home screen (aokp milestone 1 and bean)

    Well now i went the route of http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...e-10-23-a.html And I am back to Factory fresh rom with an unlocked boot loader. If I were to root the factory rom and leave it what would be the effects in the long run, and is there a costume factory rom (Jelly bean) that would solve my problem...

    I take it you are not on a shared data plan? Cause if you are, you could just use Verizon's Mobile Hotspot.

    No I am grandfathered with the unlimited plan. I spent the 700.00 to buy my S3 outright because I did not want to change plans..Kind of a waste of cash now that the program is broken with the update.

    Search the play store for portable wifi hot spot free. Works great for me.
