    Hoping someone out here can help! I just tried rooting my Verizon Galaxy S3 using Oding and root66 and at the end of the process my phone rebooted and stayed stuck on the Verizon 4G LTE screen. I tried removing battery and restarting phone but every time it still stays stuck on that screen. Any help greatly appreciated, thank you.

    Welcome akings!
    Sorry you are having issues with the rooting for your device.:(
    First question would be, what guide were you following (do you have a link?) and second question is, what Android version are you on? J.B 4.1.1? or earlier?

    Hold Vol+ and the home button with power when you boot to enter recovery. Wipe data, wipe cache, wipe davlik and reboot.

    Have you tried what WhoDoo suggested?
    Can you provide a link to the guide you used?

    Ah, it appears that video was the procedure to root if you were on ICS.
    So, in my opinion, I think we need to go back to stock, unroot, then reroot.

    Go to this link and go to step 5. I would choose the VRBLK3 4.1.1 file.

    Flash that file in ODIN.
    After that flash, you will be unrooted.
    Then follow this guide to root:

    Here is a video for that process:
    How To Root Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 4.1.1 & Install CWM Recovery! SCH-I535 - YouTube

    I think that will get you back to where you want to be:)

    If someone else can confirm this process, then joy will follow:D

    I have no idea about what effect using the wrong root method would have, but I would probably still just try to wipe first. Your data (minus media) is screwed at this point anyway. I would just wipe data\cache\davlik, then reboot and wait up to 7-10 minutes. If that doesn't boot, go ahead and re ODIN as the post has above. I do know that installing a ROM will wipe all the root-no root stuff afterwards anyway, so if you can get a boot up without having to ODIN again it may save time. Not 100% sure, but it can't hurt.

    Sorry, a better word would be "install" via ODIN.:eek:
    "Flash" is something done in the recovery screen:)

    Thank you so much for your help but I have one more problem. Everything you suggested worked perfectly, I was able to root my phone with no problem, then I made a pretty big mistake... I downloaded Titanium Backup Pro and then deleted some of the Verizon program apps I didn't think I would be needing anymore(without backing them up). Any idea how to retrieve those program apps???

    What apps are you looking for?
    You could also flash a custom rom too:)
    Is your phone acting wonky now?

    I deleted the Verizon apps/V navigator/V voicemail apps and now when I try to make a phone call the phone would just give me an error message.
    I have a T-Mobile Sim now and can't get it to work after I deleted those files with titanium pro.

    hmmmm....you could flash this rooted, 4.1.2 rom or I can try to find the stock, rooted 4.1.1 rom.
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2133235
    Besides doing that, I don't know what else to do except maybe trying to extract just those apk's from the stock 4.1.1 rom, ya know? And push them to the /system/apk with Root Explorer.

    Also, having a Tmobile sim card...don't know if that messes with anything with a Verizon rom at all.

    Can I just reset it to stock and just re root it? Would I get all the apps I previously deleted back?
  18. Mikestony

    Mikestony ~30% Carbon Black ± Moderator

    Sure you can but you wont have that data for the apps.
    If that is what you would like to do, I will find the links I used to do that.
    I unrooted, then re-rooted also not too long ago:)

    Edit: well, I'm an idiot...I posted those links already up a few posts :rolleyes:

    Lol so I'm confused now lol... What exactly I gotta do? I'm sorry

    Tell ya what..the closest think I have found to a stock, rooted rom is this:
    [ROM] Stock, Root, Deodexed JellyBean Leak 4 [I533VRBLK3] - Verizon Galaxy S III Development - RootzWiki
    flashable in recovery.
    Instead of going thru all the hassle, (not really a hassle) of unrooting, rerooting just to get your apps back....
    I am downloading it now so I can extract it to see what apps are in there:)

    And sorry if I confused you :( .... in my post 7, I have links to unroot, then re-root.
    I thought you had done that already before your app issues:)

    in your opinion do you think i would get back the apps i deleted if i just unroot and then factory reset the phone? if so i can always reroot it no problem
  22. akings

    akings Member

    or how do i install the factory rooted rom from your previous post?
  23. Mikestony

    Mikestony ~30% Carbon Black ± Moderator

    Yes. You can by following the unroot procedure;)





    You flash that in your recovery...be sure to wipe cache and dalvik cache, factory reset in recovery then flash the Rom. Be sure to download the Rom to your sd card first though!
    And very important...make a nandroid backup in recovery before you wipe and flash...a nandriod backup is a snapshot of your phone's current state so that if anything goes wrong, you can restore that nandroid backup.
