    You wont brick your phone unless you fuck with system files, out of all my experiences with rooting you should be fine. If you want to add a custom rom MAKE SURE ITS COMPATIBLE because that's a guaranteed way to brick your phone I did it on accident once.

    How did you unroot it? like did you use an app or did you download stock firmware?

    The question is not should you root it, but rather why haven't you already?
    Please press +Rep and/or Thanks if I assisted you or was of service in any way.

    Sure the root is the step that makes you the real owner of your phone..
    if you need any help to root your device dont hesitate to contact me, i will be glad of help you..
    regarding your s3 you can try to unbrick it with a Jig Dongle you can buy it for a few dollars on amazon/ebay.
    "If I helped you, then it'd be highly appreciated if you could rep comment me and/or press on the thanks button. "






    "thanks to oc for sig"

    Yes, because it gives you a lot of benefits. Be sure that the program you will use is compatible with your phone.
    Good Luck!
