Default Orange /EE jelly bean update

Hi guys,

Just spoke to Orange customer service and the update for the none LTE phones was due to be released on December 1st but got delayed and there is now no ETA of the software update to Jelly Bean.

So tempted to root but I don't really know how big a risk that really is. Any help would be greatly appreciated... Feel free to post more orange - related frustrations!

I've moved this to all things root

As mentioned give the sticky a read. If you do decide to root just take your time and ask if you're unsure and we'll be happy to help

Thanks guys.

My only concern is that so many of the root guides seem to be America-specific for Sprint etc. and I am on Orange in the UK (what is now EE).

I'm worried I'd use an incompatible ROM or something like that. Does anyone know of any specific ROMs to either use or avoid?

Also, I read about unrooting a phone - is this entirely possible should something go wrong?

I like my phone too much for it to be a paper weight

There is only one root guide in this section and its for the international version that you have.

Both Shotgun and I are from the UK too so we know where to direct you

Get all your roms from the gt-i9300 section on xda

This is the root guide you want. It also tells you how to unroot
S3 Root Guide, guide for returning to stock + video [UPDATE: new, easier, single flash method]
A list of all i9300 roms can be found here

If you flash a stock firmware then no you don't need to be rooted but I think it's usually best to flash something that isn't an OTA firmware, you can get all the latest releases from xda.

That guide is just showing you how to manually update your phone.

I'm new here. I've rooted my phone and very carefully removed some of the bloatware from the Galaxy SIII. I installed Titanium backup and a lot of funware. I can't remember is clockworkmod recovery part of the installed software?

What is "flashing" and how do I flash Jellybean? There is a new Verizon update but it isn't working. BTW my phone is an SCHi535 (Verizon).

This is the international phone model sub forum so we cannot answer you with any degree of certainty. Different models and all..

Why root then? I don't understand your ultimate goal here. Perhaps elaborate on what you want because you don't need to root to flash official roms so I'm confused

yep, basically orange are way behind and I'm wanting 4.1.2.

Do I not need to root to do this via Sammobile?

If not, do you recommend I unroot and just flash the firmware over?

Since you're rooted you should go for custom ROMs, they are usually much better than the stock firmware. Wanam lite and omega are good ones to try
