I'm half tempted to lock this thread to keep it from being a second VZW pre-release discussion thread.

I'll leave it open, for now, to see if any discussion is developed for it. If the discussion goes towards just being VZW, I'll likely lock it or merge it with the VZW thread. If this thread turns out to be a discussion among all GS3 owners, then I'd be more than happy to leave it be or move it to the Lounge, to be with the other Watering Hole thread.

Hey Treb, Remember the Good ole days? Fighting the masses to have a S3 water hole?

sniff sniff..... look how she's grown !

Come down this way.... Everything is green.... Of course 100% humidity helps that along.... Let me find a yard pic and you can feel right at home in the US.

Wow, this thread is moving faster than the speed of light today. I can't keep up with it all.

Just a couple drive-by comments from me:

I sport TPU cases on all my phones. Saved my butt numerous times. My very first Android phone died a premature death when it hit the concrete in Disney. I don't like extra bulk so my phones all have a a nice slim TPU on the back with a rubberized bumper and a wrist strap. Yeah I know the wrist strap is so "old school" but I'm a certified butterfinger. I just do not trust me. That said, my S2 hit the floor 3-4 times a day. My S2 has suffered the same fate. Not a scratch on 'em. TPU adds a tiny bit to the back and gives the sides a nice cushion. Your screen never makes contact with the ground.

Rooting: if it is so easy, why I'm I hearing nefarious things like "you have to re-install all the Google apps to work" and "if you unplug mid-root you brick your device"? I'm not a fan of it because it doesn't seem necessary (Sprint doesn't add nearly as much bloatware as Verizon or other carriers) and is woefully scary.

Backups: Ok I get why you want to backup when you are rooting/romming, but everyday use? That's what all my cloud stuff is for. SMS goes through GVoice (and isn't necessary to keep anyway), contacts, e-mail, bookmarks, etc. all done in Googleland. Photos and videos get stored on the external SD (and backed up to the cloud and computer... I connect to my laptop once a month or so and drag-n-drop to clear space). So what adantage is there in backing up for a user like me?

First off, rooting doesn't zap the Google Apps - that happens when you install a custom ROM.

Also Google only backs up some of what you have on the phone. Any third party app is on its own - e.g. games. I play Where's My Water. A lot. I've got a good way through it. However all that game state us on my phone only. If I switch to another device I have to start off from scratch. Being rooted allows me to back up all that data as well.

Rooting carries a lot of mystique because there are some - just a few - devices you can really hose. Most however are pretty sturdy and even the VZW GS3 with its locked and encrypted bootloader takes some serious effort to brick it to the point you can't recover - most bricks you hear about these days are soft bricks. You hear of a small number of hard bricks these days.

Ok so, here are a few of my favourite things to cook

Spaghetti Bolognese

You will need,
As much spaghetti to feed whoever is eating
As much garlic as you like
Beef (or other) mince (as much of) I prefer lean mince
A bolognese sauce
Some chunky chopped peppers
3 oxo cubes
Herbs/bay leaves
(optional) finely chopped chillies
(optional) chopped tomatoes

First get a pan of water on for the spaghetti. Plus a lil oil to stop it sticking together.
While that's heating to boil, take a separate frying pan and throw in the mince, add the oxo cubes (ground with ya fingers) this will coat the mince and turn any juices into a nice thick gravy/sauce.
When the mince is all browned off, add the peppers, garlic, chillies, herbs / bay leaves, and bang the spaghetti into the water. Fry off a lil more to get them flavours going.
Add the sauce and tomatoes and leave to simmer till the spaghetti is done.
Serve up to hungry mob!


Potato salad

You will need
New potatoes
A lil butter
As much mayo as it takes
Herbs (parsley / mint)
As many hard boiled eggs as it takes
Peppers (chopped to pinky fingernail sorta size)
Chillies (finely chopped)
Onion (chopped as per peppers)
(optional) some kinda hot sauce but I prefer not too hot otherwise you can't taste everything else

Steam the potatoes, leave to cool and chop into cubes then throw them into a big enough bowl for serving.
Add the mayo, peppers, onion, chillies, hot sauce, herbs and butter.
Shell and quarter the eggs then run em through a slicer and add, mix, stir and serve to starving mob!


Beef stew

You will need
Beef (ribeye or medallions work well)
3 oxo cubes
Fresh veg of choice (in my case sweetcorn, peas, carrots, french beans)
Powdered casserole mix (sausage tastes better)
Load of water
Potatoes
Garlic
Dumplings (suet)


Simple as, bung the cubed meat into a pot, add the powered mix, oxo cubes, boiling water, garlic and cook for 2 hours.
Add the potatoes, cook for 2 hours
Add the veg & dumplings and cook for an hour and half. Serve to ravenous mob!

Not tried it with Oxo cubes before. We're having spag bol tonight so I might try it.

Oxo cubes, for my American hosts, is essentially dried beef stock. Makes an excellent gravy (as does Bisto). You may have to look hard for it as your average grocery won't carry it unless they have an international isle. I have seen it before at some Kroger, Safeway, Meijer and Albertsons stores.

Default The XplosiV BBQ

The XplosiV special bbq

You will need.

Lots of small ish pots (take away type)
Chicken (cubed & mini fillets)
Pork (cubed & strips)
Beef (cubed & strips)
Ribs (the more the merrier)
Sausages (i have a sorts of varieties; pork & Stilton, pork & peppers, pork & chilli the list goes on, no really IT DOES!
A variety of sauces to compliment each meat
Flour tortillas or bread buns/finger rolls
Tomatoes
Diced onion
Cubed peppers
Shredded lettuce

Sperate the meats into pots of cubed & strips keeping meats separate (so cubed chicken in one pot, mini fillets in another and so on) feel free to add in garlic & chillies too

Marinade each pot with a sauce or sauce combo
I usually have 2 or 3 pots of each cubed meat so I can diversify more with flavours

Make a potato salad

Take everything out and get cooking!

Leave everyone to make up their own kebabs with the cubed meats and veg and just cook the sausages and strips at will

Don't forget to get some kegs of good beer in, and some spirits for later!

Pasta bake

You will need
Pasta twists (cos I like em, aiight)
Pasta sauce
Fresh veg
Cubed chicken or cooked sausages
Garlic
Chillies
Peppers
Bacon or chorinzo
Loads of cheese (strong is better)
Small spoonful of mustard powder (English is stonger)


Cook the pasta and steam the veg while frying off the meaty stuff, strain everything and whollop it into a baking / Pyrex bowl, add the peppers, sauce, and mix throughly, top with cheese and sprinkle the mustard powder, bang it in the oven for 30-45 mins and job done, serve and be hailed as a culinary god(ess)

For those who don't know, mustard powder brings out the flavor of the cheese, try it.

Just wanted to drop in and say hello! Name is jmar from Gnexville.

No one invited me but you all seem like a really fun bunch. Plus, this thread really moves on weekends. I was lurking yesterday before bed and read all about Mama 'Lin's impending foray into the world of root. Went to bed, then work. Put the baby down for a nap about 30 min ago. Open up this thread and bam...150+ post to catch up on.

Congrats to Mama 'Lin on gaining root. It's the bees knees!

Hey BB, is that you?

Pup, you are a sucker for Watering Holes!

Treb, trade you some left over Chinese for a slice...I've got potstickers!

AD, do you have a GS3, too?

Everyone else...thanks for having me!
