Rooted & Deodexed Jelly Bean Leak for Verizon SGS3
By now, some of you might be aware of the recently leaked I535VRBLI5 Jelly Bean ROM for the Verizon Galaxy S III. While the Sprint and T-Mobile variants of SGSIII received JB leaks earlier, and the latter was even ported to the Verizon SGSIII, this latest one isn’t a port. Do note that it is just a leak at the moment, and Verizon hasn’t yet started rolling it out to the users.
As with pretty much any stock update, you lose root if you install the leaked ROM directly. If you haven’t installed it for that reason and would rather keep your root access, you needn’t wait any longer as long. XDA Forum Member alexcolodner has taken the leaked JB ROM, rooted and deodexed it, and uploaded it for everyone to enjoy. It is the fully stock TouchWiz ROM, bringing all the goodies from Jelly Bean to your device including Google Now, Project Butter, and notification tweaks—but now, with root.
More information and the download link can be found at the forum thread, so head over there and get your Verizon SGSIII a taste of Jelly Bean.

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
