I used saferoot method to root my s3 with 4.3 update..
I just figured out that i did successfully root the phone, but did not unlock the bootloader.
I figured this out when I tried to make a backup of my phone and got the yellow triangle at startup
So far in Odin the VRALEC.bootchain.tar.md5 fails..
however the kernal.tar passes, but the phone doesn't load anything past the black and white verizon samsung galaxy III page...
I guess I am looking for help on how to get back to stock and where to find the right stock rom??
I do have this file "KIES_HOME_I535VRBMF1_1152558_REV09_user_low_ship. tar.md5" but don't want to try flashing it for fear of bricking..
any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
thanks in advance.
