    I will be a new owner of a Verizon S3 soon and will likely be unlocking and ROMing it day one. :)
    XDA is pretty gangbusters over there for ROM selections, but what are folks running here?
    I would like to be close to AOSP but if I lose parts of the great camera software that'd be a bummer. Is CleanROM one of the best out there right now?
    I'm currently running AOKP on my Gnex, which I love, and looks like they have support for the S3.

    Hey Bread!! :D
    I run CleanRom myself (click my sig for a link) but it's TouchWiz.

    I've heard alot of goodness for CarbonRom...haven't checked it out myself.
    Check out my little sticky for some nice links too ;)

    Yeah, I saw that too and added it to the sticky, and others here have tried it with success too:)
    If and when my daughter lets me, I'm going to try that method on her device ;)

    Any stock jelly bean ROMs out there? I was trying to go back to Stock Android through apps, but it's annoying I think I may just go for a ROM if I can find one.

    +1 on the cleanrom . . . You won't be disappointed. Also, I would recommend Leankernel (3.0 now). They definately play well together . . .

    Hey welcome man!
    I've been running CarbonRom v1.7 with the Ktoonsez K747 kernel and I am totally satisfied! I had been running CleanROM prior to CarbonRom and have to say it it's a fabulous ROM! Just got tired of TW :D

    Both ROMs are rock solid :)

    Does CleanRom have everything you need including gapps? Thanks in advance :)

    Yeah, Touchwiz roms are bloated as hell compared to the AOSP roms we're use to on Nexus devices. :p

    I think my TF roms are too bloated at 500MB:rolleyes:

    It's a TouchWiz ROM. It would not need gapps :)

    Yes, but most TW ROMs allow you to select exactly what bloatware you want to flash to the device; all the different options for launchers, cameras, etc., are included, which adds up on space quickly.

    Yeah, CleanRom seems to be like that.

    I know! Ha, I've been on strictly stock ROMs forever so I'm looking forward to trying TW for a little bit. :)

    the Jelly Beans ROM by beanstown106 is a good mix of AOSP features on a TW ROM, if you're looking for a mix
