Just trying to help again...as you can guess im bored as hell...figured this could go after we get instructions for flashing in

ROMs

A ROM is a customized version of Android built by a developer. They can be A. Based on pre-existing version of Android or B. Based from Android Source code (AOSP or Android Open Source Project).

Custom ROMs often contain features not found in the version of Android that cones pre-installed on your device, and often strip out some (or all) of the carrier specific apps (commonly known as "bloat") that come pre-installed (such as VZ Navigator).

Here you will find custom ROMs specifically made for the VZW Version of the Samsung Galaxy S III with a breif synopsis of the ROMs features, as well as a link back to the developer's "home thread" because very few developers will be posting their ROMs here directly and you can go to A. Download the ROM and B. Get support straight from the developer.

*The order does not indicate any sort of preference or endorsement by Android Forums or the thread author, I simply started at the XDA Forums and went down the forum in order of threads with most recent post.*

*Download links are not provided on purpose. Many devs like to keep "official" threads for their ROMs to keep things easier for them*


The ROMs (A Work in Progress)
***PLEASE read each specific ROMs instructions for installation! Not all ROMs are created equal, and not all ROMs share the same instructions. For the safety of your phone and your sanity, READ the instructions and TAKE YOUR TIME!***

TouchWiz Based ROMs

Here you will find ROMs based on Samsung's TouchWiz framework. They will include many of the features that you will find in the stock build of Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) that was factory installed. They will often include additional features, themed appearances, performance tweaks, and the removal of "bloat."

These ROMs are generally more user friendly and easier for people to become accustomed to.

Android Open Source Project (AOSP) Based ROMs

Here you will find ROMs based on Google source code. These ROMs strive to provide an experience close to that found on the Nexus Family of devices. This is commonly known as Vanilla, or simply AOSP.

Some of these ROMs will provide a version of Android built exactly as intended for the Nexus devices, while others will take what Google has done and attempt to improve on it by adding features and performance optimizations.

These ROMs are often in experimental states and are not always in stable form. Take caution when installing these ROMs and pay attention to if they are labeled as "stable builds" or "nightlies" as "nightlies" include the latest changes to the code, and can cause stability issues
.

. Invisiblek has abandoned nightly builds since CM10 has gone official, but from time to time if a major improvement is made, but not yet approved for official release he will create a build


****MORE COMING SOON****
