4.3 update has got a new look to phone. But while opening GALLARY and pressing SHARE button would stop the GALLARY. that bug needs to be fixed.
At lest my Galaxy S III successfully updated android 4.3 here in Bangladesh. So smooth n fast wid sharper graphics. also gaming has become still more fun.Now my phone looking great. Thanks Samsung.
guys personally after updating to 4.3 via kies XWUGML4.. battery backup is way better than 4.1.2.. seriously. and UI is real gme.. so smooth n fast wid sharper graphics. also gaming has become still more fun.. SAMSUNG has done a decent job this time around after all the hiccups...
Samsung s3 has a major problem of range. No use of buying ....so expensive and yet the basic feature of network range is horribly poor.

1.Yes you can.
2.You could try other 4.1.2, but if you face any imei error/no signal..only MG4 could save you.
3.I root with the Cf-autoroot via Odin.
4.Oh!! How could I miss typed that!! Sorry bro, actually it's ES File Explorer, not efs pro. My bad.
5.Yes, I managed to get backup using EFS pro as well, but I never restore my efs using that app. I only did it with the ES File Explorer.

I shave several questions here :
1.If I don't use any BTU firmware, can I use the stated method?
2.Do I MUST flash the MG4 firmware if I want to revert back to 4.1.2 ? Can I flash others than MG4 ?
3.You use which method to root ?
4.You move the backup EFS folder in the file manager or through the EFS pro?
5.EFS pro isn't an app from PlayStore, is it? It is a tool developed by XDA member and should be install on desktop computer,am I right?
I'm using the same BTU as well!!!
Smooth, less lag..battery backup seems decreasing a little bit. But I don't mind that, I'm purchasing a new battery. Been using my s3 for more than 6 months and with heavy use, I always expect that.
Hey!! I'm playing Asphalt 8 on my s3 while connecting to my tv. Hahah you should try it.

Battery backup got no improvement, it's the same as 4.1.2. I do heard some negative reviews, and I respect whatever they typed, but this is my own experience with the new 4.3. :-)
I just successful rooted my S3 in 3 minutes. Then I flashed custom rom Cyanogenmod 11 4.4.2 kitkat on it. So far running smooth, stable, and battery saving. You all can try this rom. To whom to know on how to root, I can guide you in wechat (stendet). Sharing is caring
I just want to ask if 4.3 is better than the 4.1.2 version ? (in performance and improvement of the phone)
When it will be release here in the Philippines.
