[Q] Need some help with my Rogers root
So I'm running 4.1.2 on my Rogers gs3 and am using the MrRobinson method to root (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1739426
Since I am using a mac, I am running VMware to run Windows 7. I followed the steps in the thread/related video:
-shut down phone/run download mode
-plug phone in using micro usb that came with phone
-under PDA, find xxx.tar.md5 file for Rogers 4.1.2
-let Odin do some verification (automatically happens once i select the md5 file)
at this point nothing occurs - I get the 0/0 message that is seen in the video. However, nothing happens to the phone, it remains in download mode with no changes on screen.
I've tried restarting the phone and restarting Odin, but nothing seems to work.
Does anybody have any idea where I should go from here? I am hardly an expert with technology and am terrified of bricking my phone (the phone is working normally at the moment, it is not in download mode).
