Rooting Samsung Galaxy S III is not a difficult task and if you are rooting a device for the first time. Then don’t you worry! We are here for you. Today we will give you a complete and easy guide How to Root Galaxy S III in just few minutes. CF- Root is considered as the easiest way to root your device and if you are a Galaxy S III owner with a very little experience then CF-Root is the best option for you.
Before we start our tutorial please make sure the following things:
- Make sure your device is the GT-i9300. You can do this by navigating through Settings > About device > Model Number on your Samsung Galaxy S III. If your model number includes a suffix, then the following step-by-step might not work for you, and if it’s a different model number altogether, it certainly won’t work, and you’ll be treading through dangerous territory with your brand-new device.
- Also, as usual, TechJeep will not be held liable if anything goes wrong with your device as a result of following this tutorial. The guide is provided only for purpose of information, so proceed at your own risk.
Let’s get Started:
Step 1: Download Odin in your PC. Odin is a software which you will need to flash the CF-Root package into your device.
Step 2: Download the CF-Root-SGS3-v6.0.zip package, and extract.
Step 3: Once you’ve unpacked your CF-Root archive, you should end up with CF-Root-SGS3-v6.0.tar
Step 4: Make sure your device is not connected to your PC then run ODIN.
Step 5: Click PDA, and select the .tar you extracted back in Step 2.
Step 6: Place your device into Download Mode by turning it off, and holding Volume Down + Home + Power simultaneously. Once that’s done, reconnect your phone to your computer.
Step 7: Ensuring the Repartition option is not checked, click Start, and after ODIN works its magic (should take around thirty seconds), the job is complete, and your Samsung Galaxy S III will have basic root access!
Busy box is not a common feature of this root, but Chainfire has said that it will be in the future.
