Just making sure I am right here.  Haven't flashed anything since my Droid X a couple years ago..

 

For a Verizon S3 

 

It can be rooted, bootloader unlocked, custom rom loaded,  and can be flashed back to stock if I want to sell it later (so as to enable it back to OTA updates)?

 

Just want to make sure before I screw with anything.

Yes, for every firmware available excluding the as yet unavailable 4.3 OTA. No guarantees but you should root/unlock BEFORE that gets pushed to your device starting today if the leaked Samsung documents are to be believed.

Is there any update on this re: the 4.3 OTA update? I installed it without checking, and it broke Foxfi. I want to root now, but it sounds like the root method here hasn't been verified with the 4.3 update yet.

As of this moment, do not use this root method for VRUCML1 4.3. Over on xda, in our TW 4.3 discussion thread, we have confirmation from multiple users that Saferoot works for our current 4.3 ota. You'll find what you need in the OP of that thread for root. Yes, the tool is in the S4 section but its confirmed to work on our S3. You can only root the 4.3 OTA at this moment, do not flash roms/kernels/recoveries and do not attempt to downgrade your firmware to anything prior to 4.3 unless you want a hard bricked device. Thank you for asking this and I hope Invisiblek does not mind if I post this here (but I'm sure he does not given the nature of VRUCML1 4.3).

 

Happy holidays!
