    I strongly dislike CWM, do we think it's safe to flash TWRP's Gs3 files? First new device (without a plethora of tried and tested files) and nervous about borking recovery.

    My opinion is I think that it is safe to try out TWRP. If you run into problems you will more than likely be able to just install CWM again. Just make sure the TWRP you download is the recovery only and not a repack kernel with recovery.

    I have installed M.O.A.R, CM10, Team VeNuM][Odexed Blue and GOODNESS REBORN. They all worked with 3g and phone service. The camera did not work with odexed blue or CM10. MOAR ran OK but a lot of the custom UI settings didn't work for me. Goodness rom is what I have been running for about 5 days now and it runs great. It looks good too. The only thing I have had to do is fix the MMS with the APN app from the google play store.....

    Hope this helps :)

    Is there a flashable zip of TWRP or do you have to go through Odin

    You can find a flashable zip in the sprint forums.
    Android Phones > Samsung Galaxy S3 > (Sprint / Cricket) Galaxy S3 - All Things Root
    CWM or TWRP
