Unhappy [Q] Root My Device

I have Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300, I tried to root it using odin, however the computer didn't recognize the device, therefore I tried to root it with other option, using Framaroot, and for some reason I got error#9, and was unable to root my device.

I appreciate your help,
Thanks.

If you don't have it then install Samsung Kies on your PC this will install the correct up to date drivers, then connect your phone and make sure you get the message saying drivers being installed, once done run Odin again.

Make sure Kies is not running at the same time as Odin as it wont work if Kies is running.

Use CF Auto Root link in my signature

If you have kies installed then odin won't work. Go read the basic guides in general forum, stick threads.

Don't post duplicate threads for questions asked hundreds of times already, use the search function instead.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Not sure what you mean by my computer still don't recognize my phone when it turned off , if your phone is turned off then no, your computer wont recognise it, because its turned off.

If you installed Kies then the correct drivers will be installed, you start Kies then plug your phone in and make sure Kies recognises it, once that is done close Kies as you don't need it any more, disconnect your phone from your PC and turn it off.

If you have Odin installed already then you need the correct CF Auto root zip from my signature and extract the MD5 file from inside it, start Odin then boot the phone into download mode and plug it into your PC, once its connected click the PDA button in Odin, find the MD5 file then flash it to your phone.

Let your phone reboot and you will have root, you may need to update SuperSU from Play Store to the latest version

Keep Kies up to date by running it now and again to check for updates, this will keep your drivers up to date just ensure it is not running at the same time as Odin as Odin will fail if it is.
