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.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
