Hello,

I want to unlock the Bootloader of S3 GT-I9300 so i can flash custom kernel & OC it.

There are different varients of S3 so i am bit afraid of bricking the device as i have no knowledge about samsung devices (SONY User).

My Questions.
  • How To Unlock BootLoader
  • Mention some kernel with OC for stock 4.3
  • How to bypass custom bin count & what it is?

My S3 is Indian and i have a stock 4.3 ROM + Odin incase needed while tickling!

Thanks!!

When you flash anything with Odin it increases your bin counter you can see it if you go into download mode.It tells Samsung how may times you have flashed your device although you can reset it with triangle away.You cannot by pass it only reset it, to avoid increasing it just flash custom roms with a custom recovery this does not increase the counter.

I currently do not have any need of custom rom, just want a kernel for stock 4.3 with OC support.
