    Question Cyanogenmod or Jelly Bean on Galaxy S3

    I picked up this phone on black friday and I've been trying to mod it in every conceivable way since. Using the method on the forum, I was able to root it pretty easily, and then tried to install cyanogenmod 10 from get.cm, but saw that there was support for Verizon, U.S. Cellular, Thomas, Sprint, Metro PCS, and At&t, but no Cricket. Nevertheless, I tried to flash the Metro PCS mod and ... things didn't go well. Then I tried using the method
    here


    to try to update the phone to Jelly Bean, but it failed in Odin. So I guess my question is, is there any way to install CM10, or get jelly bean functionality, on the Cricket GS3 as of yet?

    I'm assuming you made a nandroid backup since you aren't complaining about being soft bricked?

    I truly believe that there will be support from the CM guys soon. The MetroPCS version was released over a month ago (October 22). I picked one up just to do the unboxing, speed test, root/recovery tutorial, etc. There better be some more dev :-).

    I will start some dev work for cricket. I already know tweaks that will work for this S3 without nodding said tweak

    Also, one thing we used to do with the Verizon S3 is flash ATT and Sprint kernels and they WOULD work. Of course we are all on Jelly bean now (we have a leak, and not an official) you would have to try out ICS kernels.

    Just did the write up on the easiest method I found to root + recovery. Uploading the second video right now. Our users shouldn't have any problems rooting if they desire to.

    It's time for the mods!

    I'm going to say he got caught speeding and didn't really pay attention to the thread.

    Re: Cyanogenmod or Jelly Bean on Galaxy S3

    @Chris...since the root/recovery is based off of Metro, take it their ROMs won't play nice with Crickets?

    The guy at the Cricket store that I talked to said that their contract with Samsung requires them to update the S3 to Jellybean. He also said that they weren't allowed to integrate Muve music into the phone, but it would be an app you would have to download yourself if you want it when they get it ready. They guy seemed like he knew what he was talking about, but take it with a grain of salt. Don't flame me if this is wrong, i'm just passing along what I was told.

    Re: Cyanogenmod or Jelly Bean on Galaxy S3

    Oh that would be soo sweet!
    I just ordered mine yesterday.
    I hope to get it in least by Saturday!
    Currently on droid razr maxx.
    Just ordered and got one for my dad. He loves it.
    This will be my first cricket phone in 6 or 7 years since I started flashing phones!

    Plan to do a review on battery life.
