how i did it
Hi guys. thank you for this wonderful post.
I followed the instructions as under and achieved root. I dont know the Korean language but got a Korean model S3 3g. model SHW-M440S.
I first downloaded the files from M@31 link above :
Rooting Korean SGS III (3G and LTE) - zip files and instructions (in Korean)
files downloaded were:
First installed Odin on my PC.
Then shut off the phone and loaded it in download mode by Pressing volume down, Power and home (main key) at the same time.
I was faced with some Korean language text. i Pressed the VOLUME UP button and the phone entered download mode.
I loaded the file Cfroot_recovery.tar in the PDA section of ODIN and hit start.
The installation was successful and phone rebooted.
Once phone rebooted, i copied the CWM_Superuser_0.92.zip to the SD card of the phone.
I then shut off the phone
Restarted it by hitting the Volume UP , Power and Home key simultaneously.
Within the menu i selected 'install from SD card' and then pointed to the CWM_Superuser_0.92.zip file.
The file was installed. I rebooted.
Then downloaded superuser and titanium backup from the market.
loaded up titanium backup and it was given superuser access!
I have not downloaded or installed the
as i do not know what ROMS they are.
Anyway, i hope people find this useful. I am looking for an ENGLISH language only ROM for my Korean model SG S3. If anyone has any success with finding out, i would highly appreciate a post here
