So you just got your hands on your precious Samsung Galaxy S3 and you're toying with the idea of rooting it. I was personally a bit unsure about whether or not to do it, considering how new my S3 is. However, the process is so simple and pretty safe. PLUS I knew you lot would want to know how, so I went and did it. You can hit up the read more link below for the full step by step rooting instructions. Of course, I couldn't have done it without the work Chainfire over on XDA-Developers has done, so thank you! Also, remember you root at your own risk.
Samsung's Galaxy Siii has only been out for a couple of weeks and yet they've already released an update to the firmware. I just updated from Build number IMM76D.I9300XXALEF to IMM76D.I9300XXALF2. Now what the difference is, I have no idea. I can't say I've noticed any huge differences yet, but it's nice to see that Samsung is on the ball or a ball anyway. Some users have reported receiving the upgrade over the air (Settings > About device > Software update > Update), while others including myself had to use Samsung's Kies software. Even though my S3 is rooted, the update proceded without a hitch, but I did loose root.
Yet another cautionary tale about explicit photos on your wireless devices. From time to time, clients come in to the office next door and use the same wireless network we all do. This is perfectly normal, however yesterday I happened to open the gallery app on my Samsung Galaxy S3 and noticed a new album that I didn't recognize. If you hadn't noticed yet, your S3 will automatically scan your wifi network for shared image galleries on other devices. I did what any curious mind would and opened the album and scrolled through a bit. Holiday photos, cars, football, .....
There is a 'Quick control' menu available in the Galaxy S3's browser which makes some of menu options extra easy to access. It is another one of Samsung's very intuitive new features. To activate it, open the browser, tap the menu button, go to Settings > Labs and check the Quick controls box. To use it just tap the edge of the screen with your thumb, or slide your thumb into the screen (just a little bit) from either edge. In order form top to bottom, the quick control menu will let you open a new window, switch to an existing window, go to navigation bar address field, access bookmarks, and access the browser menu.
