Hello,
I wanted to root my S3 so I went with the guide from anuj petal on youtube( also androidrootz dot com) but it didn't work basically it told me to place superuser.zip(SU) on my phone and to update my phone with it. So i placed SU on my phone, did the odin stuff with the right .tar file, went to the recovery menu but I got the normal menu, not the clockwork menu. Me not paying attention( I know I am a moron) went to the 2nd option( i believe update from internal file and chose SU file. it was installing it, said error and crashed. Now when I try to turn it on it shows me the first screen saying samsung g3 and I9300 and then I get a black screen. Can someone please help me? I tried factory reset from the same menu but it didn't do anything. It as the apply update from external storage. Now it doesn't work anymore. Can i but the original samsung software on a SD card and use that to update it with because I think I updated my software to superuser instead of the normal software
