Default S3 root problem

I have Samsung S3 (GT-I9300)
Followed the guide in http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1684535
After that when I reboot in recovery it tells me:

Custom Binary Downloads: Yes (2 counts)
Current Binary: Custom
System Status: Custom

The reason I have 2 counts is that I installed 'CF-SGS3-CWM-v5.5-v1.5.tar' with Odin3 v.1.85 and discovered after that there was a later version Odin3 v.3.04. Then I reinstalled the tar-file with the later version ... I guess no harm done. Odin installed successfully both times.

But where is SuperSU & ClockWorkMod ???
I thought the were installed with the tar-file.

When I boot in recovery there is no option 'install from zip' ... so I can't install the downloaded 'CWM-SuperSU-v0.96.zip' either.
Tried to install SuperSU from Play (both free & pro) but when clickin on SuperSu error message 'there is no SU binary installed, and SuperSU cannot install it'

So where did the simple rooting go wrong ???
Appreciate help.

The device restores stock recovery on boot unless you
* rename the etc/install_recovery.sh
* or take the x-flag from it.

Had something similar some time ago, but it only sended me to stock recovery while using adb to reboot.
Download cf root from chainfire and flash it with Odin.
Afterwards install cwm touch with rommanager.
Worked for me back then.

Edit: btw, the thread you are referring to is for cwm touch only, got nothing to with root.

After that when I reboot in recovery it tells me:

Custom Binary Downloads: Yes (2 counts)
Current Binary: Custom
System Status: Custom

You are right ... it is shown in download mode ... my mistake

As mentioned I downloaded CF Root 'CF-SGS3-CWM-v5.5-v1.5.tar' from chainfire and flash it with Odin.
I got this from Odin:
<ID:0/003> Added!!
<ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
<ID:0/003> File analysis..
<ID:0/003> SetupConnection..
<ID:0/003> Initialzation..
<ID:0/003> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/003> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/003> recovery.img
<ID:0/003> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/003> RQT_CLOSE !!
<ID:0/003> RES OK !!
<ID:0/003> Completed..
<ID:0/003> Added!!
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 1 / failed 0)
<ID:1/004> Added!!

Then I downloaded/installed 'rommanager' from Play but when running it there is an error message that I am not root.
Don't understand howto get root privilidges ... thought flashing CF Root took care of that.

That's just cwm, you need to flash cf-root.

As the name tells it is cwm not root.
Go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1695238
download cf root from the third post and flash it with Odin, afterwards you have root and cwm installed. If you want cwm touch do like told before with rommanager.

Well ... it seems that I am not 100% airborne.

After I installed 'CF-Root-SGS3-v6.4.zip' with Odin I maid a backup.
Then I flashed 'RR_JB_V3.0.6_AOKP_4.1.1_I9300.zip' & configured & rebooted ---> S3 is dead after the 'Samsung S3 GT-I9300' is displayed.
Now I have to boot into recovery and restored my backup to get S3 alive again.
What is wrong with 'RR_JB_V3.0.6_AOKP_4.1.1_I9300.zip' ?
I have used RR before on my old S2 and had never experienced any problem ?
Is it a S3 issue ?
