Thanks for your help freefaller, appreciated it alot. The reason why i want to root my S3 is that; i bought it from someone pre-rooted and i'm already facing alot of problems as a result. So i want to unroot or reroot it with the official stock firmware so that i can enjoy the full features of it.
Anthony, 12 Dec 2012the last sentence is confusing me. is it a lot slower or not?@ Anthony
Perhaps 'a lot slower' was a typo error. 'A bit slower' would be more accurate. I compared my S3 against my friends one with v4.1.1
Mine was a fraction slower reurning back to the Home page; the same app on each phone was a fraction slower opening on mine. It wasn't anything in particular. Anyway, there wasn't anything in the update I NEEDED, so I went back to v4.1.1
It seems strange that the update hasn't been released to any other country yet, don't you think?
AnonD-85762, 12 Dec 2012thats a lie all 9300 can be flashed to the poland update. @ jgalvez21
What part of my post was a lie? Where did I state that the International version of the S3 cannot be flashed to v4.1.2?

Android v4.1.2 has only been released in Poland so far, so unless you are Polish you wouldn't have received the update yet.
This is a link to a site that shows the countries that have received the update (it is updated daily).
It shows that only Poland has it so far, so if you are that impatient you will have to flash the phone yourself.
I have flashed my phone myself, and for some reason I haven't established yet, it is a lot slower.

I should also have added that your phone will no longer be recognised by Samsung. That is to say that you will no longer be able to update it via Kies or OTA, but if you still wish to root the phone then goto:
There you will find all the instructions and links to the files you will need to do it.

WHY do you want to root your phone. It is obvious from your post that you don't have the slightest idea of what you are doing. Rooting a phone is only for advanced users, which you obviously are not.
If you don't know what you are doing, and you don't, then you can cause irreparable harm to your phone.
If you can explain WHY you need rooted access we might be able to help you.

That is download mode.
It let you download ROMs to the ROM chip.
That is why it is called download mode.
Don’t you see the Warning?
