    Just flashed official 4.1.2 and device now really slow

    flashed the official british firmware and my S3 is sluggish

    slow at opening apps and the android keyboard has stopped working (gesture one)

    i didn't do any wipes as its a stock ROM

    restoring my 4.1.1 nandroid now

    any clues as to why the 4.1.2 update went wrong?

    Probably needs a wipe....

    Why flash official if you're rooted?

    Even going from stock firmware to stock firmware I'd do a wipe. It's most likely that it's remnants of the 4.1.1 interfering with 4.1.2

    Hey Dan

    I have several accounts on my s3. Like gmail, work email, Skype, Microsoft lync,

    All these applications work and scared they won't if I flash custom

    Custom ROMs work better than official ones because the Devs fix the things that Samsung don't :).

    if i did flash the rom in your sig - would i need to change my kernal and radio?

    You can choose whether to update the kernel or Radio.

    If you have the stock kernel currently, I'd recommend using the kernel included in Wanam (Update kernel option) but custom kernels are my favourite

    I'm on Wanamlute 4.1.2. For me it's a lot smoother than 4.1.1

    Is the option to update the kernel included in the rom

    No, its part of the installer. When you flash the ROM, the installer gives you a load of selection boxes (not chocolates) that you select or deselect.... Things like Samsung Apps, update Kernel, S Voice, blah blah

    that's excellent. is the kernel included decent enough?

    you're always really helpful

    Erm... its better than stock. For me, I like to undervolt so for those who.like to tweak, they may want something more but sure, it'll certainly work well.

    Improves speed but i can imagine others disagree lol.

    Got this at 1.6 earlier with under 100 free ram

    My moral is... never clear ram :)
