Correct! That would be simplest for right now at any rate. Root, flash a custom recovery (download ROM Manager and have it flash clockworkmod), and flash a kernel of your choice through recovery. When you're rooted, you can also download pretty much any root uninstaller and they'll let you get rid of bloatware.

For someone new to it I wouldn't recommend flashing custom ROMs until you're familiar enough with what you're doing. Frankly rooted gives you enough control, it may not be worth the headache to do custom ROMs if you're new.

Thanks. Yeah I probably won't bother with the custom ones for a while. Just would like to be able to choose what bloat to uninstall and overclock. I'd be content for a long while if I could do that.

Do you have any input on my previous post? About the GPU overclocking?

Got me a Verizon S3! Coming from Apple and never using Android before I managed to flash to CM10.1 and screw it all up where I was stuck in roaming with no service. Talk about learning everything fast haha. After getting it all fixed and running good think I'll stick to stock rooted and unlocked for a bit.

EDIT: Removed question, figured it out.

I am digging this extended battery I got for Christmas. 37+ hours with my normal usage, which would be light to moderate I suppose. 7+ hours of screen time.

I get about 3+ hours on normal battery running custom firmware wink.gif

Takes about 5 minutes to learn dude. Deodexed and zipalligned roms that preserve stock look are totally worth it.

Not really in my opinion no. Depends if you like the stock look. After all its just a phone nothing more and already very fast. Overclocked in my opinion is silly as there's absolutely no need and will just drain your battery quicker.

And will, 99% of the time, be more buggy than stock.

I've yet to find a JB ROM that matched the stock battery life. Found one on ICS that did.

Like I said, every phone reacts differently to ROMs, so for someone who is learning the ropes, I don't find it advisable to recommend custom ROMs.

Bear in mind I've been rooting and ROMing for 3 years, on 3 different phones, from 3 different manufacturers. All three have had unlocked bootloaders and custom ROMs. These are my own findings. Honestly the only reason I run custom on my GS3 is unlocked camera options. Most things you can do rooted stock. For me that includes AdAway, AOSP Email app (I HATE the touchwiz email with a passion), crapware uninstalled.

It used to be that I rooted and ROM'd because the manufacturers fell short. These days? You either stay pretty close to stock or go AOSP. My uses have changed over the years too. Back then I had to be on the bleeding edge and could handle a nonfunctioning camera in order to be on the latest version of Gingerbread. Now I just want everything to work.

I've heard that the processors in these are over-volted and under-clocked, as is the case most of the time. I know that power is just sitting there, I can't ignore it. Must...unleash... biggrin.gif
