I got a new straight talk s5 recently so i tried some things with my s3....
The Boot loaders unlocked so its easy to root it. My baseband is H2 no need to flash H1
Simply flash cwm recovery 18.104.22.168.tar (touch verison doesnt seem to work) when phone reboots from odin immediately and I mean immediately hold the correct keys to boot into recovery if you let the phone boot you have to flash again.
Have a supersu.zip on your sd card (probly shoulda mentioned that first) and install it via cwm
Then enjoy root
Also twrp doesnt work and no other versions of cwm recovery work just google "clockwork mod recovery verizon s3 .tar, i belive the link was on xda forums anyways
P.s. i wonder what my straight talk 4glte sim would do in my s3? I remember the custom rom no sim or working mms crap on the s3. Ill investigate it a bit.
P.p.p.p.s when u guys finally bite the bullet and get the straight talk s5, i have rooted that in a similar fashion. It also runsvon verizon but has 4g! Finally! The model # is SM-S902L just fyi also costs 550$ brand new from walmart thats the really sucky part
Edit: i used odin v3.07 to flash use PDA button and default options (dont use phone button, confusing i know)
