How to update Galaxy S3 with Official XXALE8 4.0.4 ICS Firmware


Wednesday 30th of May 2012 / android.gs
Thanks to those of xda-developers we now have the default version of the Android firmware that comes pre-installed on the Galaxy S3 handset. This means that you can start flashing custom ROMs or beta software in your phone’s system, as in case something wrong happens, or if you don’t like the new ROM, you can just follow this step by step guide for learning how to downgrade or update the S3 to the official ICS XXALE8 4.0.4 OS. So, it will be a good idea to check this tutorial and save the firmware, just for avoiding any kinds of unpleasant situations.I know that the Galaxy S3 is maybe the most powerful smartphone available nowadays, with great specs and features, so probably you will be tempted to take full advantage of its capabilities. And in order to do so, you will have to gain root access over its system, unlock the bootloader, install a custom recovery image, flash custom ROMs and so on. But all these operations are risky and can damage the phone’s internal system. Therefore, maybe you will have to downgrade the S3 to the stock firmware for re-storing the OS. At that mome

Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-I747 (AT&T): Flashing Ultimatum S3 custom ROM - Android Authority


Tuesday 10th of July 2012 / androidauthority.com
Especially after devs have provided a way to flash ClockworkMod Recovery on and root the Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-I747 (AT&T), users will now be able to enjoy custom ROMs.  XDA Developers member howtomen has released what is claimed to be the first-ever custom ROM for the AT&T Galaxy S3.  It’s aptly named, too: Ultimatum S3.The said custom ROM is based on stock AT&T firmware and has been deodexed, zipaligned, and pre-rooted.  But, that’s not the juicy part: Ultimatum S3 is a debloated ROM, which means that stock Samsung apps that many users consider worthless or useless have been removed.  The debloating, as expected, results in smaller ROM size and presumably improves performance on an already top-performing, quad-core dual-core monster.Other ROM features include an advanced reboot menu, scrolling wallpaper, a modified MMS app, modified WaterDrop sound, and no boot sound, among others.Check out the Ultimatum S3 custom ROM on your AT&T Galaxy S3 SGH-I747.  Our guide will walk you through its installation.WarningsThe instructions for this guide are intend

Help!Samsung Galaxy S3 (AT&T) rooted, not sure if I have CWM and I want to get an OTA update (4.1.2)


Thursday 15th of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hey guys I have a GS3 at&t and I am rooted and I think I have stock recovery (anybody know how to tell for sure?) When I turn off the phone then do power button, vol up and home button it gets me into this thing called android recovery ( which I'm assuming is the stock recovery). I want to go back to all stock except root. When I tried the 4.1.2 at&t update (the latest one) OTA on my phone it all downloads fine, but then when it reboots it shows the at&t logo on a black background and says updating but then at exactly 25% it said update failed. Anybody know the problem? I had cyanogenmod with 4.2.2 and I used mobile Odin to flash the stock Samsung at&t firmware (if that is relevant) and before I did have clockwork recovery (which I know that you can't to ota with a custom recovery) but I thought I got rid of clockwork because I flashed it with mobile Odin. Could anything else be causing the problem? Please help!!! I'm not new to rooting, but I'm not and expert (I have successfully rooted and installed cwm on my gs3 but bricked my kindle fire xD) once again plz help an

Rooting the S3 without a custom recover?


Saturday 14th of September 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Is it possible to root the Canadian version of the S3 so that I have the root functions without installing a custom recovery? I heard that if I install custom recovery it will stop all official OTA updates. I need root permissions for few apps, but I like the Samsung stock software. Is there a guide on here or some other site or a movie that explain how to root with Odin3 without the use of custom recovery? Thanks.
