So who here has rooted method 2 for the Boost SPH-L710T Base AOA3?
Questions:
1. If it was successful what was the Philz version you used and for what Base version as I have heard they don't have a version for AOA3 yet if ever?

2. Where did you find it, if it is different than the link (OP) on page 1?

3. What ODIN version did you use as I have heard 3.09 and 3.10 were the 2 available?

4.. Does anyone have a link to the ODIN software, the OP link says "Server not found" when selecting it?

5. Have you had any issues with it since?

Thanks for whatever help you can give!

I used the philz version in the op, and the Odin version in the op, but one thing you have to do is flash twrp in Odin first, I found the link to that a couple pages before this. Read that thread, has a lot of helpful info, after you flash twrp in Odin, you have to flash philz (links in the mentioned previous pages if the op doesn't work) I had to flash philz a couple times for it to work. But have patience and you will get it. I felt so stupid over how easy it was once it was done

The odin method works fine. I would use twrp, not philz. Philz is no longer being developed.
To get odin, just Google odin. Or get it from any s3 root thread. Or any Samsung root thread, they all work.

Twrp wouldn't stay for me, every time I restarted my phone it would be stock and unrooted. That's why I went with philz. But I plan on keeping the stock ROM, just wanted the root.

Thanks everyone for the tips! Yeah I had read the entire thread but so many people said so many different things for so many base versions that it got too confusing on what worked for my base version and what didn't.

Did you use TWRP Tar from that link or TWRP Tri-band? I guessing Tar but with rooting I want to make sure.

I had the same problem. And the .tar file. Flash it in Odin using the "ap" tab, with the phone in download mode. Make sure auto reboot is unchecked, also make sure Odin connects to the phone, that was my biggest problem.

You can't let it auto reboot to system. If it tries, hold volume up and home so it goes to recovery. You will have the same issue with philz. It's the phone. It's made to re install stock recovery on reboot. But if you boot straight to recovery from flash, the recovery (twrp or philz) will fix it for you.

So using ODIN 3.09 I can bring up the TWRP tar. file in AP but in making sure all files are readable ODIN is not able to see the Philz file in the AP open pop-up page. I also tried it on ODIN 3.10 What am I missing? @6th_Hokage or anyone
