Hi,

i just got i747 Galaxy S3 from Bell i would like to root and unlock it.
I also i have figured out that the CM8 for i9300 is not compatible with i747.

Is there a ClockworkMod version for i747 available?
Can it be rooted and unlocked?

I would like to use it on Fido.

thank you.

I cannot find any tutorial how to root and unlock i747.

Thanks.

I am afraid there is nothing for the I748 version yet.
Only the international version had root so far.....

I am afraid you are going to have to wait.....

Looking at this post:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...52&postcount=2
Is it safe to assume that I can buy any unlocked Bell/Rogers/Telus Galaxy S3 from kijiji and expect LTE to work on Rogers correct?

If iam not wrong there is no hardware difference between those i747's mostly it's the software which makes the difference.

My concern is more now should i sell my Bell i747m or not? Cannot use the phone at all since iam on Fido. I would rather buy then the international i9300 Galaxy S3 rather spending 33$ to unlock the phone.
I can sell it then for the same price and buy then the i9300.

Iam not sure if its even possible to unlock the i747m at all via a app or patch. I cannot find any info about it

I got Bell S3 as well and so far I747M model dont have this nv_data.bin file for unlock. But someone already send the Bell file to developers so they can come up with the unlock app. : (
