You must have the following to root your Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone:

  • Odin for flashing the root files
  • The root file
  • Samsung Kies for the drivers from Samsung’s site

You are on your way

  • Install Samsung Kies and restart your PC.
  • Plug-in your Samsung Galaxy S3 and allow the drivers to be installed.
  • Connect your Galaxy S3 to your PC.
  • Create all necessary backups before you continue (just in case).
  • Download the Odin utility and the root file
  • Extract the archives to a folder on your desktop.                                                      Now you will see 3 files: ‘Odin3 v1.85.exe’ utility ‘Odin3.ini’ file, and  ‘CF-Root-SGS3-v6.2.tar’ root file.
  • As soon as these files are ready, restart your Samsung Galaxy S3 in download mode.
  • Turn the phone off. Pause for a few seconds and then hold down the volume-down + home + power button until the phone switches to the download mode.
  • Plug-in the USB cable to the phone & PC and let the  drivers install.
  • Once the drivers are installed, start the Odin utility and now you should see the phone being recognized on the ID:COM section.
  • Your device has now been recognized by the utility and your phone is ready to be flashed.
  • Click on the PDS button and specify the ‘CF-Root-SGS3-v6.2.tar’ file from the folder you extracted the root file on the desktop. (Make sure you don’t touch any other settings in Odin and also make sure the ‘Repartition’ option is not checked)
  • Click on the ‘Start’ button and wait for the process to finish.
  • After a short period time your smartphone will automatically restart and will be rooted with ClockWorkMod recovery already installed on it.

If it didn’t work, please repeat the above! In other words try the complete procedure again.

Now when you have completed the rooting process and installed the CWM recovery on the Galaxy S3, you should initially backup the entire installed ROM onto your SD card by taking a nandroid backup.

You can now go ahead and remove bloatware using Titanium Backup or install third-party developer ROMs.

Important: We cannot guarantee that this will solve your problem. So be extra careful while attempting to root your smartphone.  This is at your own risk.   GOOD LUCK!!!
