    Yeah, I'm on Orange/T-Mobile - or EE - and have had no issues at all. Would still like to install stock JB though.

    I'm on orange and have had no problems with the update. It's a cracking phone!

    How patches are ruining the future of gaming My thoughts.

    I'm on Vodafone but would the network be the issue? I'm not talking downloading etc generally just using the phone. Pushing the home button and having to wait hours (exageration) for it to do anything

    did you do a system reset after you did the upgrade. This apparently fixes a load of problem. You'll lose all your data, of course.

    The reason I asked about network is because the different networks make their own tweaks to firmwares (this is why I always get unbranded handsets).

    The custom tweaks are coupled with loads of extra testing is what causes the ota upgrade delays. I was wondering if 02 or Voda had cocked up their upgrade.

    Voda shove a whole load of bloatware on with their releases. Dreadful.

    Is it the same with a different launcher?

    I'm on Three and my S3 is definitely more sluggish since the update.
  • Deleted user 14 November 2012 21:33:36
    @Dougs It'll still have the same crap on it yeah. Only way out is to root and uninstall it or just do it properly with another rom.

    I really need to stick a different room on my S2. Only just recovered from being brave enough to root it!
  • Deleted user 14 November 2012 21:45:21
    Ach that's the hardest part man!

    I know, most roms recommended using a different method to root it and couldn't be arsed to either do it again or just see what happened if I threw one on there anyway.
  • Deleted user 14 November 2012 21:58:58
    You can always recover. As long as it's rooted any old how you can chuck whatever rom on you want.

    Now that its rooted get clockworkmod on there to get a custom recovery menu (it'll usually prompt you on first load) and then perform a nandroid backup (full image backup).

    You can then install datasync or similar program and backup all app data to dropbox, google drive etc so you can restore to your next rom.

    Once you have that, go nuts

    This might sound like an obvious question, but would a system reset delete all data saved on the phone? I might give it a go, but having your re-download all my apps, games etc would be a pain in the arse.

    Well, since the update, I my month old phone is losing 10% battery an hour just on standby. Left it on the bedside table with 90% battery and it's down to 12 as I sit here in the khazi.

    Now 11 as I type. That is fucking appalling.

    Resurrection Remix and the latest Dorimanx kernel have just reached a decent level of stability for me.

    Was just about to try one. Just slightly confused that they say not to restore from back ups. Not that it bothers me, contacts are synced, music and apps are easy enough to throw on again.

    Im going to blitz this and start again, as soon as the fucking thing wakes up.

    The only other thing I can think of is google now.

    I had originally got a o2 build on my galaxy and performance was a bit dodge at times on the first day. I had rooted immediately to SIM unlock anyway so installed the latest stock unbranded gs3 firmware.

    Has been extremely smooth since.

    It's easily done and easily reversed for warranty purposes.
