    You don't root this way. You flash ROMs this way. You need to use Odin 3.07 to root. Or go to XDA forums and use the S3 toolkit program.

    Seems like the stuff people helping with isn't right. Spending money on apps and they don't do anything.

    you don't even need a computer, get the Odin mobile app from the playstore and use it to flash CWM.


    your best bet is to get the GS3 root kit from XDA and read the instructions first !
