Seems to be a permissions problem as indicated in this thread (towards the end): http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1735128

Is that s problem with the ToolKit or with the build.prop changes from the thread you linked to. Its never a good idea to edit too much in the build.prop as it can soft brick your device.

I'm not sure at this point. All I did was use your tool to disable boot ani.
But it's not inherently the tool's fault because it happens if manually done also.

Just upgraded to an SIII from a G2 and boy, when did rooting get so easy? Thank you for this fantastic tool; your work saves everyone a ton of headaches.

Recovery
Does this recovery support external sd card and if it does do the backup and restore work? I know there was one posted, but restores did not work. The recovery in the root tutorial woks with backup/restore but it's internal storage support only.

I would also like to verify this?

I got everything to work except installing superuser. I passed ODIN and then when I try to flash superuser, it flashes but when I restart my phone I don't have superuser.

The ToolKit uses Team Epic's v4 cwm Recovery which from their changelog supports external sd cards and has no mention of restores not working so I would think its safe.

You can see Team Epic's Changelog *HERE*.

What exactly did you do (all steps chosen) and what happened on phone and pc.

Did you let the ToolKit set up Superuser or try to install it seperately?

Did you read and follow all the steps in the ToolKit (installing drivers, enabling usb debugging)?
