Re-rooting S3 after Jellybean(Posted by Hammertime on 12/28/12 at 4:55 pm)
Unfortunately I didn't look up what to do before my phone started doing an OTA Jellybean update, and have lost my Superuser root access. I still have some of the apps frozen, but a couple of the new things(Verizon backup+media, Verizon Sync Svc, Call forwarding, Smart network, S voice, Help)wont fricking shut off.
Has anyone dealt with this? All I have found is some technical 11010110 computer mumbo jumbo, and I want to be able to get these things off/frozen
Oh yeah, I have already tried rooting it again with the RootDebug thing and it aint working
I don't know about the s3 but I know this has happened to people on other phones. Usually you have to wait for a workaround based off the current os version. If you wait and keep checking xda you should find a solution.

Something about you flash counter gets triggered that will allow Samsung to know you have messed around with rooting your device (even after restoring/unrooting). Again, I'm more of an iDevice guru, but have and still hear about this issue. Just be cautious and research before jumping in in the future.
