    And with the current Rooting and Bootloader unlocking methods, the Dev Edition will have little use.

    There is a new I535VRALHD ROM leaked for the Samsung Galaxy S III.
    It is still 4.0.4 ICS, but provides better 4G signal reception dBm with faster download/upload speeds, and improved battery life.

    So I've updated my S3 to the VRALHE version and now my battery is draining quicker and its laggy. Just did a hard reset on it to see if that helps.
    If ignorance is bliss and patience is a virtue, you'll have a good life if your dumb enough to wait.

    To anyone who gets to read this before they get pushed. I just got an update on my S3 and it wiped my music off my SD storage card. Not the pictures just the music folder.

    Was there a way to refuse or block the OTA?

    Were you rooted? ROM?

    Anyone else having problems using the built-in MHS tethering feature? Sometimes it works great but much of the time I have very slow speeds or worse the connection doesn't work at all even though the laptop says it is connected with full signal strength. Requires 5 to 10 times of turning the wireless on/off on the laptop before internet works again. The laptop is a macbook pro which works great on half a dozen other wireless networks.

    This may not be S3 specific.

    I installed the newest Jelly Bean leak (version J1) ROM last night, and so far it's working nice without any major issues.

    FAUguy, do you know of an S3 root / unlock that works with WiFi on the handset -- no PC required ?

    From what I've seen, all methods of rooting the GS3 require connecting it to a PC.
    You can ask over on XDA and might get some answers there:

    Thanks. I wasn't able to find one either. Ditto my Xoom. Catch-22, no ISP at the farm.

    Yeah there is no one touch root app that can be installed on the GS3 in ICS. With the new JB leak, you have to use a PC to flash the Rom and then unlock the boot loader. Only then, and you start the phone in ClockWorkMod and install the root zip file.

    Been doing some research and outside of personal odds and ends, this seems like a very solid device. The only thing that I've been seeing and concerned about is the reception. Have any updates been released that have addressed this or is it the same ole Samsung crappy signal issues?

    I'm in a poor reception area to begin with but one thing I couldnt stand with Sprint is that I had to call someone back 3-4 times during an hour and a half commute. With Verizon, I am good for the same trip. Could be provider or phone but I want to be sure that I don't commit to a phone that has a garbage signal.
