Hey, everyone.

I've been searching around XDA and RootzWiki to try and see how I would be able to root my S III.
I found this one thread that recommended to downgrade to the VRBLK3 firmware.

I attempted to flash it VIA Odinv3.07 and the firmware update (or downgrade) failed.
I don't know what is causing it, probably a patched hole. But, when I rebooted my phone, it told me that the OS was "broken" and I needed to use Verizon's repair utility (I just flashed back the 4.3 MD5 and all my stuff came back).

My question is...
Does anyone know how to root the Verizon S III from 4.3?
OR
Does anyone know why Odin is failing on the downgrade?

Any help or comments are appreciated greatly.
Thanks!

You can't downgrade.

Alright, thank you for the information.
I thought it was an old sticky from before and it just went over my head.
