    So after having my phone a little over a year I took the plunge. And it was way easier than I expected. Used casual root to root and unlock the bootloader. And I am using MOAR which is based on 4.3. Its amazing so far!! I waited so long cause I wanted to be out of my year factory warranty. And the only thing I found that didn't work was the camera app but I just got a different one from the play store. Any suggestions on good ROMs would be greatly appreciated!!

    TouchWiz (like MOAR) type ROMs : Popular ones like the People's ROM and Wicked Sensations.
    As for AOSP, you can run Cyanogen, AOKP, ParanoidAndroid, SlimROM, or LiquidSmooth.

    Thanks for the reply and the suggestions. I really look forward to seeing what this phone can really do!! I hate that I waited so long but wanted to be out of warranty first.

    Just remember to clear cache, reset the phone and only get ROMs for your exact model and carrier.

    Funny, I just went back to stock (unrooted).

    For another option, you can look at CarbonRom http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2136840

    If you're just looking for a low bloat factor and real reliable ROM, try CleanROM Seven. It's kind of like stock 4.1.2 (with Multiwindows, of course), only more reliable, and very little of the Verizon/Samsung bloat. It cuts your battery usage as a result, and when combined with Lean Kernel, it cuts battery usage even more. Really useful on a day-to-day basis.

    What were you running when you took the plunge? And what method did you use? I'm considering as well.
