Thanks!
if you like Customization and Blacked out, im beta testing BAKED BlackBean ROM then the VZW S3 (D2VZW) is on the list. its almost out of Beta. this ROM you'll like-

Thanks for the heads up, i will look into it!

When making my first nandroid backup after the rooting process, is it advised to store this backup on the external sd or internal sd? Can it be transfered back to a computer to be saved, in order to save storage space? What do you guys prefer?

Got a couple quick questions for you guys.

1) Is it possible to download Roms directly to your device with its browser instead of downloading them to your computer first, then transfering it to your phones SD card?

1a) If so, any downsides to doing it this way?
1b) If not, is it as simple as connecting the device to your PC. And drag/dropping the rom file on to the SD card, or does it need to be done in Odin?

2) Md5 checker of choice?

Thanks!

Thanks guys!
So goo manager can be used to download the roms and Gapps, and also verify them all in one? Possibly silly question, but can goo manager be installed/used before you are rooted?

If not I was looking at an md5 checker called Android File Verifier.

I think goo manager will check md5 because its stopped a few installs with md5 not matching. You need root to flash stuff but can download without it. Goo manager works with twrp recovery as well. Goo manager will also let you order and flash roms straight from the app.
