Just used on the Stock Canadian JB update and as everything else chainfire does worked perfectly. Absolutely amazing work, I have tried to buy the pro version of all your software is that better then directly donating?

You rock, saved me a massive headache rooting 3 guys at work phones!

Rooted my S3 in about 27 seconds from start to finish. Wow, pretty simple.

Now what I'm understanding is you guys are suggesting NOT to install a CWM or TWRP recovery? and just flash the roms from Odin?

---------- Post added at 10:51 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:07 PM ----------

Sorry quick question: I know you don't support custom recovery modes like CMW and TWRP, and I notice CF AUTO ROOT flashes stock recovery... so as a noob, am I to understand that correctly, if I were to install TWRP (for example) and decide its not for me or simply want to go back to stock recovery, I could simple re-run CF AUTO ROOT? and it would re-write the stock recovery mode?

Should Auto Reboot be checked in Odin? Its checked by default and it is not mentioned to uncheck it unless one runs into problems.

- If you end up with a recovery.img and cache.img file, you've extracted twice. You need to end up with a .tar.md5 file - don't extract that one
- (USB) Disconnect your phone from your computer
- Start Odin3-vX.X.exe
- Click the PDA button, and select CF-Auto-Root-....tar.md5
- Put your phone in download mode (turn off phone, then hold VolDown+Home+Power to boot - if it asks you to press a button to continue, press the listed button, or run adb reboot download command)
- (USB) Connect the phone to your computer
- Make sure Repartition is NOT checked
- Click the Start button
- Wait for Android to boot
- Done (if it took you more than 30 seconds, you need practise!)

- NOTE: Sometimes the device does *not* boot into recovery mode and root your device. Just do the entire procedure again if this happens. If it still will not install root and such, make sure that in Odin "Auto Reboot" is not checked. Then after flashing, pull the battery, and boot with VolUp+Home+Power button to boot into recovery manually. This will start the install process.

New to Samsung? Unfamiliar with Odin? Think all the above is a hassle? Get used to it. It's very simple, and us Samsung folk use Odin (or Mobile ODIN ) for everything! It's so very very convenient once you get used to it. Notice the 30 second comment above? For experienced users, the entire process indeed takes only 30 seconds!

You may now optionally want to install and run Triangle Away to reset the flash counter.

Thank you Chainfire

Did you end up leaving it or unchecking it?

I left it. Strange though, I used the provided odin and those options were greyed out, and auto reboot was checked. It was really straight forward. It was so well made, I was compelled to help out chainfire and bought triangle away.

Just used this method to root a brand new T999. Fresh out of the box I did the OTA update to Jellybean, checked it out for a few hours as-is, then just rooted it now. I have Titanium Backup installed and I'm already freezing bloatware. Thanks so much for this method! Worked fantastic. Chainfire rules, but you all know that already.
