Sure there is. I am nearly sure there is an xposed module for the sim card issue and just use something like titanium backup to freeze unneeded apps

stock sch-l535 kitkat never been rooted
So i want to mod my girl friends s 3. My phone is a zte max phablet 4.4.2 deodexed rooted, xposed framework and scripts but ive gotten bored and wanna tackle the s3. So i know the bootloader is locked now and towelroot is an option for me correct ? I didnt know you could root a phone with a locked bootloader. If i can i have a few questions.

1. With towel root do i need to install supersu from the play store or is that included in the root process.

2. With the s3 bootloader locked does that mean i just cant install a custom rom? And all other possibilities are still availabIe? Xposed framework especially?

3. Is safestrap a custom recovery like philz (cwd) or is it something that allows me to install a custom rom with a locked bootloader.

Sorry for so many questions but theres not as much up to date info on the s3 cause there isnt many un rooted s3 s hanging around anyway. And most s3 guides and tutorials ive seen are updating to kitkat and keeping root or 4.1 stuff.

Thanks in advance

Josh

No problem about the questions. It's always good to ask

1. I would recommend supersu from the play store

2. Yes that's correct, no custom roms. There are bootloader locked roms that you can install, I want to say there are two or three roms available

3. As far as safestrap it's a recovery but I'm unsure if its like philz or cwm at all. I'd imagine it's based off of one of the other recoveries

Any other questions feel free to ask

I just tried installing towelroot and im getting an there was a problem parsing the package. I have unknown sources enabled already.

---------- Post added at 06:39 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:03 PM ----------

i got it rooted i installed es file explorer and it worked fine. I was getting errors with loader droid which she already had installed which sucked. Thanks for the help. Ill install safe strap if i can flash zips from it.

Off topic my room mate has a htc desire 510 the newer htc that boost sells with a locked bootloader also so towelroot might just be able to root it also?

You can try it out, it won't hurt to do it. Worst case scenario is it won't work

No. If you Google GeoHot and towelroot, I'm sure you will find links letting you know GeoHot now works for Google and neither he nor anyone else is doing anything to update towelroot. Beside that, the vulnerability towelroot exploited has been patched. So there is nothing to update. This topic has been beaten to death worse than a dead horse.
