Rooting the S3

I just wanted to start a thread here on the topic of S3 rooting. I have found instructions on other sites but this has always been my home site for PPC guidance. So let's get some chatter here.
Here are some links to tutorials:
How to root your Samsung Galaxy S3 | Reviews | CNET UK
How to root the Samsung Galaxy S3 SPH-L710

It is still a little sticky with the locked bootloader but you can bet the XDA boys are hot on it.

Re: Rooting the S3

I thought only the Verizon version had locked boot?

Re: Rooting the S3

I am not sure. The poster did not state his carrier. I may try to root today. I was going to wait until the 14 day trial ended but I just can't stand to have a non-rooted phone. There must be 50 Crap apps on here and it is loaded with promos.

Re: Rooting the S3

The Sprint version was super easy. Took me 5 minuets to root & install the Blazer ROM. Loving it so far just got it today.

Rooting the SGS3 [T-Mobile: SGH-T999]

[ROOT, CWM, BUSYBOX, etc.] Exclusively for the T-MOBILE SAMSUNG GALAXY S III (GSM), MODEL # SGH-T999.

[SAMSUNG GALAXY S3 QCOM TOOLKIT V1.0] Drivers Backup Root CWM BusyBox + MORE [TMO].


INTRO:
British Developer ''mskip'' -- famous for his cutting-edge ''Toolkit'' series for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, has developed and released a similar ''ROOT Toolkit'' for the T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 (GSM), Model Number: SGH-T999.

I have used his ''Toolkit'' on every one of my G-Nex i9250's and have never been disappointed: Fast + Easy + and SAFE!


IMPORTANT TO NOTE: This Specific ''Toolkit'' is EXCLUSIVELY FOR the T-MOBILE SAMSUNG GALAXY S3 (GSM), MODEL # SGH-T999 --- NOT for the i9300 "International-version S III" phone!

SOOOO .... IF you have T-Mobile's ''S3 T999'', then you just might want to take a good look at what is now available for your phone, in terms of ''Drivers Backup'', ''Root'', ''CWM'', ''BusyBox'' ... and more! (As you will see, the actual d/l package file is entitled: ''SGS3 Snapdragon Toolkit v.1.0'').


HERE ARE THE DETAILS:
Developer ''mskip'' 's Introduction and Detailed Explanation can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1746682

Re: Rooting the S3

Yeah, I am rooted. Used the QCom tool. Pretty simple. Still on stock Rom. Looking around to see what I like.

Blazer ROM is fast and stable with low battery consumption. Its what I'm using until something better comes along.
