I am having some issues trying to root my Samsung Galaxy S3. I am currently running the stock Kitkat version of AT&T on my S3(SGH-I747) and trying to root it to be able to install CWM and a custom rom.
I have tried chainfire and towelroot methods.
I used the following tutorial of using ODIN and chainfire image for samsung SGH-I747:youtube.com/watch?v=LwsvPO8jVGE
I was able to get all steps to work and get everything same as the video above except when I install "Root Checker" from android play store it gave me message that "Root method is not properly configured" even after odin showed "Success" after rebooting and applying the patch
I then used the towelroot method by going to the towelroot.eu website on my phone and installing the apk. the towelroot app gave me the message that "I have root and do not need to reboot my device" but Root checker still says that my root is not configured.
I then reset my phone by pressing volume up+power and home button and clearing "Cache" and wiping data" and trying the above methods again but still unable to get the phone to root.
I am completely stumped as to what I am doing wrong. And would really appreciate some help from the pros.I have attached a snapshot of my device info and thanks for the great work and guidance.
PS. I already made sure that my phone is in the "Developer Mode" and "USB debugging" is enabled
