Just to be clear, it's not mine. Geohot gets every bit of credit for this. I just posted it here to inform and help S3 users.

It sounds like you enter got something acting up on your device. Some sort of malware or something. I just tried it and the links work perfectly fine for me.

Chainfire just released a new stable SuperSU, version 2.13.

You can get it from the link below or from the link in my signature. If anyone has any issues with it, please let us know, and if you have the time, report it to Chainfire in his Beta thread. (Don't forget the logcat and to be as detailed as possible.)

The following link is to the changelog and includes a number of details. I highly suggest taking a minute to read it as the changes will affect a number of things going forward. The link to download directly from him is at the bottom of the page.

I click on "make it ra1n" the button turns yellow and nothing happens.
Root Checker says I have no root.
I've tried several times and sometimes towelroot won't even open and sometimes it just crashes.
What do I do now?

XDA Recognized Developer @geohot has developed a new root method that so far is working for many, many devices....Including ours!!! And believe me, it just does not get any easier than this!

Check out geohot's original thread here on XDA: I'm throwing a party and you should come **GS5 ROOT THREAD**

Don't forget to at least click his Thanks button, and consider donating to him if you can. There was a bounty started for rooting the Verizon and AT&T S5's, and they finally got their wish! And geohot gets to claim a nearly $19,000 bounty!!! Amazing stuff! For those who may not be familiar with his previous work, he was the first to jailbreak the iPhone/iPod, and if I am not mistaken he did the same with the PS3!


So anyway, you are here to root your device, no? I guess we should get on with it then!

This is confirmed to work on 4.3, NC2 firmware for the T999, as well as 4.3 and 4.4.2 KK firmware for the I747! It should work for the T999V firmware released this morning, and for the upcoming KK updates to the T999/T999L/T999N!



HOW TO ROOT WITH TOWELROOT
Developed By: geohot


Go to http://towelroot.com
Click on the red Lambda symbol to download the towelroot.apk
Install towelroot.apk on your device
Open the app
"make it ra1n"

You are now rooted! But need to follow a couple more steps.
Install Chainfire's SuperSU from the Play Store
Open SuperSu and let it update the su binary
When it asks if you would like to disable Knox, SAY YES!



Note: I tested this on stock unrooted 4.3 firmware. Build NC2. When I told SuperSu to disable Knox it just hung with the spinner going. I just had to close SuperSu, reopen and when prompted again, said yes and it worked just fine.

There you have it! The easiest root method we have ever had for our S3's! Enjoy!

Holy crap I'm rooted and i didn't even have to factory reset?

Thanks Doc, My SGH-T999 is only my backup phone so i didn't care much to factory reset or really spend to much time rooting it.
I'll most likely stay on android 4.3

Thanks!

Nexus 6 5.0.1 Rooted
Nexus 7 5.0.1 Unrooted
SGH-T999 4.3 Rooted
Droid X 4.4.4 Rooted
