What would be the most awaiting Android smartphone with high profile features of this Q2? Yes! Samsung’s latest Galaxy III is the one that’s still be waiting to get your hands on. With the help of XDA developers forums folks it’s been rooted. It’s very easy because of its not having any locked bootloader similar to the Galaxy S, S2 and the larger phablet Galaxy Note and the task becomes easier of acquiring root automatically.
But only thing with achieving root is the fact that he, the XDA devoloper Chainfire doesn’t have the device in hand for testing though, however the process should remain the same come release day. Suggession for Samsung before releasing its high end Galaxy smartphone or any devices could have made difficult for the hackers and devs to get into the Android builds, but the comapny have pushed a real service by shipping the device with an unlocked bootloader.
The good thing that the Korean electronics made is didn’t changed their way or views on locking down devices, and which appears to be very easy to root the Galaxy S3, unlocking the bootloader and be ready for what developers and ROM flashers wants.
Before we get started we have to remind that already the S Voice APK was leaked and made available for all Android devices, along with Galaxy S III official ROM leaked the other day. Its good to have the information out there so that you can get a rough idea of the steps involved when you finally enter into the Samsung’s first qaud-core effort.

Step 1: Download the (insecure) kernel based on the XX NEE ALE8 firmware from Chainfire dev.
Step 2: Now download ODIN 1.85, this will ve used for flashing the insecure kernel.
Step 3: Once both files downloaded, extract them using WinRAR or TugZip archiver tool which you desire. If you have already installed any RAR tool then no problem.
Step 4: Once the kernel extracted, you’ll be left with a .tar file.
Step 5: Put your device into Download Mode. Simply by pressing and holding the Volume up + Power / lock buttons simultaniously, and pressing Volume Up when prompted.
Step 6: Now run ODIN, connect your PC via USB, and within ODIN, click the PDA and select the .tar file which you extracted from the insecure kernel.
Step 7: Click Start button and the flashing process begins in seconds.
Step 8: Now you’ll need to “upgrade,” currently from insecure to full root. For this, you’ll need to boot your Galaxy S III, and enable USB Debugging by browsing to Settings > Applications > Development.
Step 9: In this step, your insecure root allows adb root commands, but won’t allow your apps to get super access; so you will need to install SuperSU.
Step 10: Head over to XDA-Developers link. Download the sgs3-root-install-zip file, that contains SuperSU v0.89, and extract it.
Step 11: Double click the install.bat with adb running, and after a reboot, your Samsung Galaxy S III will be finally rooted and fully accessed! Steps followed from Redmondpie!
