[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?
