Hey guys,

I'll start by saying that I wouldn't normally post like this so please don't overlook or shoot me down too harshly. I have done extensive searching on XDA and google and found nothing yet so if this has been answered, please simply point me in the right direction.I have experience in rooting and custom roms and what not yet I cannot seem to root my I9300 (JB 4.3 build; i9300xxugnd3).

I have tried the Odin-CFroot way. With three different version of CFroot, several versions of Odin (as admin) and all the USB ports I have.
I also checked that kies wasn't running at all yet still this method just freezes at recovery.img until I stop it (Even waited an hour plus!!)

Also tried the K1mu safe root which simply froze at "sending files to device" and nothing happens either.

I simply want to root the phone, Is that too much!

Cheers

Can you flash normally with Odin? Try a factory reset then flash the latest stock firmware, if that works then try CFautoroot again.

If the firmware fails to flash then you have emmc issues.

I think it's already running the latest stock. I'll try again after work today but I don't seem to be getting anywhere fast at this point.

I have no custom recovery and stock recovery cannot flash that package. I also cannot flash any custom recovery.

I have tried flashing a couple of CWM Touch imgs and CFroots but they fail. Odin 3.07+3.09 still freezes at "recovery.img" but Odin 3.04+3.06 and 1.85 finishes at "<ID:0/009> Complete(Write) operation failed." - I am currently trying to download a stock image from Samobile but they have a server issue so its going to be really slow. Any ideas in the meantime?
