Guys I was trying to root my bro's GS3 with odin.. the flashing went perfect, infact there was a SuperSU and CWM app installed too, but when i tired to open the app it was showing that SU bianary needs to be updated..
I even updated the SuperSU from the Play store but was getting the same error essentially.. also tried the Superuser FIxer app from PS but it also stuck at
Gaining root access :fail
I tried flashing the SuperSU 1.51 .zip from the recovery mode by placing it in internal memory but to my surprise the file path of the internal memory was not visible and when i inserted a sdcard and copied the file to it and then tried to flash it thru recovery, it was successfull but got a few erros , something like who file not successful(will try again and post exact same thing in by tomorrow)
in the meanwhile can anybody help me? plz its urgent..

If you have philz then there is an option tu reroot it in philz settings... Do that and install supersu from play store and it would adj to update binaries just press normal... Done...
Or the other way is supersu1.93 I'd the latest search fit it's thread download zip and flash through recovery...

I do not think your ROM is rooted properly. Try to download some software from play store to check whether it is rooted or not.

If not rooted then you have to google and search the rooting process. You have to use computer ODIN to flash and root your phone.

Having SU app does not mean your phone is rooted. Thats just an front end to provide you root access. Your phone has to be properly rooted.

Do you have a custom recovery? Did you flash cf-auto root? Philz touch is a custom recovery based on cwm. Flash that with odin, go to philz settings and then re-root system.

The simplest place to start is a root checker app (just stick root checker into play store). If it says that you don't have root then you don't simple as that. In which case use CF-AutoRoot program on your pc which will flash both a Custom Recovery (clockworkmod) as well as root... after that, the world is your oyster...

The root checking app is the simplest way to check if you have root though if you're new to stuff like this.
