[Q] No able to root SGS3: CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: NO
Hi, I bought a used SGS3. I want to root it as I have allways done with my Android phones.
After a lot of hours I spent trying to do it I find out that it could be related to: "CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: NO" message.
- As I know the only way to root the device is using "custom binary download" mode.
- When I try to do it I read at download mode:
PRODUCT NAME: GT-I9300
CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: NO
CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
SYSTEM STATUS: Official
- Odin allways fails at this point and I suppose it is related to above message.
<ID:0/005> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/005> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
- As I read to increase the binary download counter I need to be root, but I am not.
Conclusion: I will never be root, change de ROM or use privileged apps like backup apps and a device like that is useless for me.
I spent a lot of time trying to solve this and I am desperate.
I will thank any hint on this. Do I have any chance to fix this, root de device and chage ROM to cyanogen or other?
