gonna safestrap, install a basic rom and get to it!
Is there any way to shut down all telephony stuff and sim card alerts?
So i want to mod my girl friends s 3. My phone is a zte max phablet 4.4.2 deodexed rooted, xposed framework and scripts but ive gotten bored and wanna tackle the s3. So i know the bootloader is locked now and towelroot is an option for me correct ? I didnt know you could root a phone with a locked bootloader. If i can i have a few questions.
1. With towel root do i need to install supersu from the play store or is that included in the root process.
2. With the s3 bootloader locked does that mean i just cant install a custom rom? And all other possibilities are still availabIe? Xposed framework especially?
3. Is safestrap a custom recovery like philz (cwd) or is it something that allows me to install a custom rom with a locked bootloader.
Sorry for so many questions but theres not as much up to date info on the s3 cause there isnt many un rooted s3 s hanging around anyway. And most s3 guides and tutorials ive seen are updating to kitkat and keeping root or 4.1 stuff.
Thanks in advance
I just tried installing towelroot and im getting an there was a problem parsing the package. I have unknown sources enabled already.

i got it rooted i installed es file explorer and it worked fine. I was getting errors with loader droid which she already had installed which sucked. Thanks for the help. Ill install safe strap if i can flash zips from it.
Off topic my room mate has a htc desire 510 the newer htc that boost sells with a locked bootloader also so towelroot might just be able to root it also?
No. If you Google GeoHot and towelroot, I'm sure you will find links letting you know GeoHot now works for Google and neither he nor anyone else is doing anything to update towelroot. Beside that, the vulnerability towelroot exploited has been patched. So there is nothing to update. This topic has been beaten to death worse than a dead horse.
I know who george hotz is....he used to work for facebook in 2011 and last summer Google hired him for there software security auditing Team but why is he still accepting donations thru paypal and bitcoin if he no longer suppports towelroot? Just a curious question!!!! thanks!!!!
