***Please note that you should uncheck 'auto reboot' when flashing cwm in odin. If you reboot straight back to your stock rom, it has a fail safe that will restore stock recovery. Once you are done flashing cwm in odin, do the the three finger salute to enter into cwm recovery to flash supersu.***

My Korean's not good enough, wife isn't technical enough and translator doesn't do a good enough job but on the first link I can't figure something out. The top part is his guide to rooting but at the bottom, S3-3G-RootingRom.tar. Is this a custom rom, is it the factory rom, just very vague.

By the looks of things, it is a rooted stock ROM with Busy Box installed.

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:
odin3_v3.04.zip
cfroot_recovery.tar
CWM_SuperUser_0.92.zip


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
S3-3G-RootingRom.tar.torrent
OR
S3-LTE-RootingRom.tar.torrent

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
Best regards

I messaged the guy who runs Blue Premium website and asked a few questions. One I asked was are there any custom roms that we can use right now, like CM9? I know you have your Presto ROM but I assume it is all in Korean correct? He answered...

"PRESTO ROM is indeed in Korea, but you always CAN Change the System Language. Crazy kamui figured out that custom ROMs can be flashed onto Galaxy S3 - Korean version if you change the kernel section. However, CM9 and AOKP don't work that way, so don't try. Actually we're Testing Several Things to Korean Galaxy S3 to Port CM9."

So its seems for right now Presto ROM is your only one. Let me know if you try it out and give some feedback.

Links have been updated on first post....Thanks to p33k and sambauer for doing some searching.

I'm still curious how they know the rooting and ROMs work with the LTE versions, since it is not released yet. Maybe they have access to one....?

Anywho, if one of you try out the custom ROM, let us know!

For the Factory ROM and Kernel, anyone post the Firmware numbers for it so I can add that? Thanks!
