ATT made JB available via Kies weeks ago, its available to get without rooting.

If you drop your computer does it slow down? No, it either breaks or it doesn't.

If it is the same as my US Cellular Jelly bean 4.1, then you may have to manually install it. I downloaded mine via computer and installed it over USB cable. It reminded me of when I (briefly) rooted my phone. The whole take out the battery and hold power, menu, and vol down keys... I kept checking where I got it from to make sure it was legit. ph34r2.gif

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

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.
Try wanam lite 4.1.2 deodexed and zipalligned. Set all animations to 0 and disable stuff you dont use.
Loving it.

Anyone check into Wireless Chargers?

Been thinking about it.

Qi makes a receiver that goes under the battery cover without adding any bulk.

Then Qi compatible Energizer, Nokia and other transmitters are out there.

$70 total or so. Seems to be the best quality / reliable set up.

I thought about it but its more of a luxury, with a wire connection it will charge faster, what we really care about. I rather get the official Samsung docking station that come with a extra battery for $40., i wish it could charge the extra battery and the phone at the same time but it doesn't only the spare batter.

You could also wait for the 3000mah battery from Samsung like me biggrin.gif
