First thing you need to learn about any device is how to restore it when you mess it up. Unless you are a pro at hacking you are going to mess it up and brick at some point. Learn how to us ODIN and restore the device to factory stock rom.

  • Key Combos: Volume Down + Home
  • While holding both of them simultaneously press the Power button until you see a disclaimer on the screen
  • Then let go of all the buttons and press Volume Up to accept the disclaimer

Recovery Mode

  • Make sure your device is completely off
  • Key Combos: Volume Up + Home
  • While holding both of them simultaneously press the Power button
  • As soon as the phone vibrates, let go of the Power button but keep holding Volume Up + Home
  • When you see the “Samsung Galaxy S III” logo (not just the word “Samsung”), right after that, the next screen you should see is your recovery
  • Don’t let go of Volume Up + Home until you see your recovery
A unlocked boot loaded lets you flash custom kernels and other fun stuff. 
To relocked the boot loader just flash the stock rom with Odin and it will relock the boot loader.
Flashing a Rom in Twrp recovery.
First make a nandroid backup on your rom and then wipe data, cache, and dalvik. Next flash rom and gapps if needed then reboot system. If phone boot loops or will not startup after flash wait 10 minutes. Pull battery and enter twrp recovery with vulome up, Home, and power.  Then restore your nandroid backup.  Link to list of bloat ware that can be removed or frozen HERE
