Prompt [Q] need help rooting telus GS3

Trying to root it to get the hidden basebands so i can use it on wind mobile. I just switched to lnux and I found this video and instruction set on androidrootz "how to root galaxy s3 on max osx/linux/ubuntu [Jelly Bean] US/Canadian" (can't actually post the link because i'm apparently still new)

having some problems, the root isn't taking properly. I keep getting this readout from the console when I try to root the phone.

everything is fine until that part that I have highlighted in red. suddenly stops and just says failure for no apparent reason. When the phone reboots, I have the superuser app installed but because the phone isnt actually rooted, i can't do anything with the app, just keeps trying to get me to update the su binary (again can't actually do it because the phone is not actually rooted). Anybody know what i can do to make it work properly?


Running telus GS3 32gb with android 4.3

Baseband version
I747MVLUEMK5

Kernel version

I just read through that page you posted, I do have KNOX on my GS3, and it says that using the CF autoroot on a KNOX device will trip the KNOX void warranty.... is that going to cause a problem with actually rooting the phone or is it just going to void the warranty and they wont cover it if it goes sideways?

Loading any non-Samsung software is going trip the Knox counter so, if you have a warranty on your phone, it may be best that you not flash it.

what does that actually do then, tripping the knox counter? does it just disable knox completely? also i've had this phone for over a year now so the warranty is completely gone

Knox is security software that Samsung included with the 4.3 update. It's a method of separating work files from personal files on the phone.

Here's a link to pre-rooted stock ROMs: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1739426

if i'm not worried about knox though.... will rooting the phone disable knox somehow (also could disabling knox affect the phone in some way)

I assume you have no warranty because rooting will void it.

Routing will not disable Knox.

If you have access to a PC, you could load a custom recovery, root from recovery, disable Knox from recovery, and you're good.

just tried the same method from a different source with slightly different method of inputting the commands into the console, here's what it looks like this time

as you can see, it didn't hang on anything, it actually went through what I'm assuming is the entire process, and it even rebooted my phone for me but when i went in to check titanium backup, it told me that I don't have the root privelages enabled.....
