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.

Default 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*.
