64Gb SD cards are a pain in the ar$e! The problem isn't with the S3 but with Android itself. Try reformatting the card to Fat32 format and see if that works.
Aki, 19 Apr 2014Thanks bro! :)
This app does not require rooting, does it?@ Aki
It doesn't seem to. I just installed it on my (unrooted) S3 and it worked fine.

I wouldn't risk screwing your phone up just to achieve that if I was you. There are several tricks you can try first before doing that.
Take a look at '1Tap Quick Bar' on the Play Store first. The video on the site is in French but I found this on YT.

How can i change my notification bar so that it is revertible and i can revert back to the samsung one whenever i want/ if anything goes wrong?
Do i just copy the systemui file on my memory card to make a backup?

Android v4.4.2 (KitKat) is looking less and less likely for the S3:
estelle12, 18 Apr 2014EFS folder? Can you elaborate what is it, and where I can find it?@ estelle12
EFS is a system directory that contains device specific essential information such as it's IMEI, wireless device MAC address, baseband version, product code, system ID and NV data.
If the EFS directory is corrupted or lost, your phone is sure to lose its IMEI number and wireless and network connectivity.
So you can see that if you install v4.3 on your phone and then decide to roll back to 4.1.2 then your phone wont be able to read the EFS folder because it is in the wrong format and your phone will literally be dead because it no longer has an IMEI number. You would have to manually restore the backed up v4.1.2 folder.
You will have to use a root explorer app to find and copy the EFS folder on your phone because it is buried deep in the system folder.
Unless you have any app that specifically requires v4.3 then I would recommend staying with v4.1.2 for now; in my opinion v4.3 was a rushed out mess.
SENTHILGANESH, 18 Apr 2014@ killbill Thanks for ur suggetion Is there any way to root S3 without losing warranty?Senthilganesh bro no way,, if you root your phone you'll surely run out of warranty because rooting opens all the inbuilt passwords which are mandatory for the locking the necessary apps and softwares, it they are removed once the company will not be responsible for anything happening with that phone so it goes out of warranty.. Even if you unroot the phone all the locks cannot be restored so the company will not consider it..
Hope this software would help you guys muti-task with ease.
There is a free app called TOUCH ME-ASSISTIVE TOUCH, this app is really cool, you could muti-task using this app without needing to press buttons, plus it has got a ram usage monitoring on it and lets you clear the ram while you are working on another app, eleminating the use of specific apps to clear ram.
All in all this app is capable of multi-tasking, clearing ram, showing the ram usage at all times.

Touchwiz is very memory intensive; it is filled with a lot of Samsung apps that most people never use.
I use 'Smart launcher Pro' as my launcher. By making it the default launcher I have found that I have nearly 300Mb of RAM available.
Also, try 'Clean Master'. It is a free app that is very good for deleting junk files and has a good memory optimizer.

You can, but you have to make a backup of your EFS folder first, because the EFS folder on v4.3 is written in a different format to the v4.1.2 and it can't read it. Your phone will just go into a bootloop.
You can do that with an app like ktool. It isn't easy, so learn how to do it before you begin. There is a helpful video on:

At least if they cannot update it to kitkat, they should have fixed the endless number of bugs on 4.3.
Poor people who updated their phones are stuck with a terrible battery life .
