    Ah yea, that'll do it, I could be wrong but that might let you flash JB once it's released too, still wouldn't hurt to get odin going and getting used to it. :thumbup:

    The bonus of having a NAS is I can make you a login and put all the needed files into a folder for ya :)

    G'morning All!

    Well, it's a wet n soggy morning here, hopefully Isaac is moving along now though.

    How's everyone doing?

    Now that our bootloaders are unlocked you only need Odin to go nuclear and flash completely back to stock. With an unlocked bootloader you can flash JB through recovery.

    (I'm currently running JB on my VZW GS3)

    KLin - download this:

    It's by the same dev that you posted above and is a simple way to unlock your BL. Just download, open, hit the unlock button....and poof - you are free of the VZW shackles. Its really that simple.

    Sounds great... ! I also downloaded and ran the Terminal Emulator.


    Not bad... Brisket is in the smoker... 10 more hours and we should be good to go. Thank God I have chicken, artichokes, pineapple, corn and hot dogs to hold us over !

    ^ wish I was hanging around that with some beers (and cool folks) and not dreading going into work which I know we'll be slammed for the night. :(

    Bummer... one of the things I don't miss about restaurants is working on days that most folks have off:eek:

    Yep, we close two days a year (turkey day and Xmas). The other holidays are boomers for us, especially being in a city that revolves around Gov't and tourists (who always get those days off).

    My two least favorite days of the year used to be Valentines day and Mothers day:p

    Heh, after 12 years living here in the US, me mum has finally learnt which days are US holidays.

    She just called me to wish me a happy labor day :)

    She does profit though, she gets 2 mothers days, the UK version and a US one that comes later on.

    Meh, being married, Valentines is pretty much not that big of a deal. :p:)
    Mother's Day on the other hand, basically just a required phone call. My dad doesn't care much about Father's Day (though I call anyway), but my mom is a big proponent of her day, especially to here from her grandkids.

    I like the holidays and what they stand for:D Didn't used to like them bc those are typically the busiest day's of the year in fine dining restaurants:p Everyone wants to take the Sig other and mom out for a sit down on those days = super busy.

    Being married has probably made Valentines day even more important for us!

    Mothers day is invariably some sort of chocolates for Toma's mom and flowers for my mum. Those flowers tend to get expensive when you factor in the currency exchange rate...

    I'd call me mum as well, but if wait long enough then she'll call me when she gets the flowers!

    Oooops! paying to much attention to the WH and not enough to my phone. Just flashed the wrong kernal and bootlooped my GS3:p

    Recovered and all is well:p
  19. breadnatty08

    breadnatty08 pain rustique VIP Member

    Pfff, bootloop. Just wait until you get to SBF or FXZ your phone. :p
    Had to do it a couple times with my Bionic (when installing the leaked ICS ROM). Never had to do it with my OG Droid, but it's fun starting from scratch! :rolleyes:

    I was always a tad fuzzy on bootloaders, never really knew what they did (and never claimed to)

    So from an unrooted S3, I take it I cant use EZ to flash and root, I would need to root first?
  22. Rachel A

    Rachel A Well-Known Member

    Correct. EZ requires root to create the custom recovery.

    Only us folks on VZW need to bother with EZ unlock... our bootloader was the only one that shipped encrypted. The rest of you folks just need to root and flash a custom recovery.

    Yea I just read that on the rootzwiki ... so id still use odin to root (as I am already familiar with the process) im just waiting on JB now before i get started.
  25. Trent Reznor

    Trent Reznor Well-Known Member

    If your familiar with Odin... you can use that to flash a rooted rom. Then once you are rooted with a custom recovery you would just flash roms through recovery (ODIN no longer needed).

    I typically caution new folks from using odin. If your not careful you can do things in ODIN that will seriously mess up your phone.
