After rooting my device, being on LE8, the LF2 update came out.
I thus decided to upgrade via KIES, whilst being rooted.
Upon upgrading via Kies, to LF2, where my S3 successfully, whilst being rooted with CF root, lost root, after upgrading officially with Kies.
I thus was on LF2, officially via Kies, but had no more root.
I went ahead, after losing root on the LF2 upgrade, and regained root, via the same method.
I just thought I should mention this for people wondering about losing root after upgrading via Kies.
After having the J$ pads and not being 100% satisfied, I went ahead and bought the Lawton Audio Angle Pads, to see what the difference was and if they would provide the same quality sound, but with the comfort that I had with the stock pads.
You can purchase them, directly from Lawton Audio – Over there you will find more info about them!
I recently bought the J$ Pads from Head-fi after a long search for them (almost 5 months!) – I finally managed to nab a pair for a reasonable price of £40. Might seem a lot for just pads, and I agree, but I wanted that added comfort.
