All-in-One Reference Thread for the T-Mobile Galaxy S III
As the development for a device evolves, more and more guides, tutorials, and so on are released. As time continues, these threads can get buried in the forums, forcing members to search through various pages to find the threads they’re looking for. It can be a hassle, especially when there are many threads with the same general keywords, which makes searching difficult. For T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S III users, there is now only one thread to remember.
XDA Senior Member techfanatic9 has posted a thread that serves as a table of content of sorts for pretty much all the useful tutorials a user might need. This is helpful in a lot of ways, but none more so than having one space where users can easily reference and find content. One bookmark is better than 12 bookmarks. Some of the stuff linked include:
Rooting on Windows
Rooting on Mac
Resetting the binary counter
How to make Nandroid backups and install custom ROMs
How to unroot without using a computer
How to install ClockworkMod Recovery without using a computer
There are ten links overall, and plenty of stuff to help new users get better acquainted with their devices. If you’re looking for how to do practically anything on your SGS3, this is a thread for you. To learn more, check out the original thread.
