    Mine done. Sisters about 1/3rd of the way done. I was surprised to see that my phone was not wiped! I was expecting to redo everything, as usual! Everything just the way I left it. Very nice. Now for some tweaking.

    The worst part was downloading the image file which was in .7z format, which I needed winzip to open. Then I needed a new version of odin.


    EDIT: Flashing TWRP to my s3 via goo manager. I think... :)

    Yup. Now my first backup. I need to find an SD card already.

    Sisters phone just rebooted. Next :D

    Hmmm... Windows just installed drivers again, for her phone. How odd... SU is there so I guess that is what counts.

    It wipes everything if you unlock the bootloader. Many root methods do not wipe the phone, they just use an exploit to install superuser and the root binaries.

    Shouldn't matter, I think you can still use Odin for kernels and such, just don't ask me how as I have never played with it.:rolleyes:

    Just noted that my sisters phone said "pass" in odin. Mine did not. Guess I unplugged it too soon. Um...

    Anywhoo...

    I pulled the 32gig card out of my Xoom that I am not using and going to put it in the s3. Should I format it in the PC, or Xoom or s3 or does it matter?

    Eh. The Xoom would not let me format it, so its in my PC getting a format. Not the quick version.

    Anyone into winter sports in here? ~80 days until the season opens in CO and I can't wait. So sick of the last 3 months of 95+ weather.

    I like snowmobiling, if you consider that a sport. But I can say there is nothing like mountain top views of a snow covered landscape. Looking forward to that.

    Haven't rode a snowmobile in years... heck of a lot of fun!!! I'm gonna try to go to Aspen for Xgames this year and the snowmobile jumping is an event I want to see.

    I absolutely love being above the treeline on a snow covered mountain:)

    Meh. Black phones are kind of played out, I think. I went with blue because I am depressed all the time :D

    Just kidding. The phone is depressed because it keeps getting hacked, then neglected for long periods of time :D

    What is the dumbest question you can ask at a restaurant ?


    Is your fish fresh ?

    Where I'm going w/ this. I'm currently up at Longhorn's Steakhouse watching my Cowboys as the wife is in Phoenix & daughter is at my parents. By the way Pup, Wild West Shrimp was awesome. The guy next to me asked that question & the bartender replyed..." No, we let it sit out in the sun for 12 hours & then after that let it sit in mop water for another 12." She immediately looked over at me & I said, "OMG, will you marry me b/c that was awesome."

    He ended up ordering the Prime Rib which is what I'm waiting on. And yes kymberlin, I will be eating the fat !!!!

    LOL:D However, I personally don't order fish on Sundays or Mondays. Last delivery at restaurant is usually on Friday... so by Sunday fish has a few days age and on Monday they are trying to get rid of any remaining before using the new stock.

    Fresh fish, eh? I work in a restaurant. Granted I'm not in the front too much but I'll help out customers with food related questions all the time. Stupid questions are pretty much all I get. The one that bothers me the most are people with food allergies who don't speak up or are ignorant of common foods that could harm them. Personally, I don't have any so I don't worry about it. But if there was something that I could ingest that would send me to the hospital (or kill me!), I would take it upon myself to learn as much as possible about where those foods commonly are. :mad:

    Haha, that was great. And yes, I turned on my wife to Wild West Shrimp, and it is the main attraction for her every time we go. She could care less about the entree, but get her that appetizer, and right now :p
