I used CFRoot and Odin to root my Galaxy S3 i9300. It seemed to go OK but when I open SuperSU it says "There is no SU binary installed and SuperSU cannot install it. This is a problem!" I have tried to install SuperUser but that also says the SU binary isn't installed.

What has gone wrong? Do I need to run the Odin process again?

Thanks.

Just curious: did you install SuperSU from the Play Store prior to flashing CF-Root?

Ah, right. Odd, 'cause if the SuperSU application was installed from the SuperSU ZIP then it means it should've installed the su binary too. (Sometimes flashing CF-Root doesn't trigger SuperSU install and you have to manually reboot into recovery mode.)

You could try reflashing CF-Root or just use CWM recovery (which should be there since you used CF-Root) to reinstall the SuperSU ZIP (CWM-SuperSU-v0.96.zip).

I just retried the root with Odin, same result. I do have ClockworkMod Recovery so I will try to flash it with that.

Thumbs up
I flashed the zip with CWM and it flashed fine, and fixed the problem! I have now installed and used successfully TriangleAway.

Many thanks!

If you haven't got an SU-binary, you can't install SuperSU or SuperUser, no su - no root. Download Siyah Kernel (S3 - http://gokhanmoral.com) download latest kernel for your firmware (ICS or JB) and lash via Odin..

Then you (should) have root and SuperSU should be pre-installled

Hope I could help!
