When you get a brand new phone one of the first things you want to do is root the device. When a phone is new to the market this is a little bit scarier because there is no way to go back to stock. If you end up with an issue and need repair on the phone you can’t return the phone to stock and risk Verizon charging you for the phone. Before the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 is on store shelves the factory restore image is available to save you in case of a soft brick or hardware issue needing repair. Now you can feel free to crackflash the device. If an issue comes up or your phone wont boot right, just flash the image and you are all set. If you have an S3 from Verizon, you may want to download this now just to keep around.
