    ah ok sorry guys seems it worked for every other carrier on android was a trick i read on xda but seems what they are doing is sending the actual update to each market indivually so if your market dont have it yet its cuz they dont have it yet. anyways im guessing everyone should be updated before sunday.

    I used the Samsung Gs3 Toolkit to root since it was the quickest way for me to get all the files needed. Took me about 3 mins to root after I used Odin to do the Jelly Bean update.

    Hello android friends!
    I literally made this profile to ask a few things. I've reading this entire thread following on the 4.1.2 update release. Now that's released it only includes jelly bean which blows btw. Okay, reading all the comments I saw that you guys talked about a few roms like Carbon and Metropolis. Which one of those have a fully functional and stable premium suite? If not what Rom out there does?
    I love the stock rom but I really want the premium suite with all its new kickass features! >:D if we have to wait another year or never get the premium suite I'm totally going to root and flash a Rom that has it.
    Anyways thanks in advance!

    I'm not gonna install Clockworkmod Recovery on my phone. Had bad experience with it the last time. It's almost impossible to remove it once it gets onto a phone.
