    here is an easy .bat file to have it build an odin file on your phone
    (it should work, but i cant test it... so use the file at your own risk)
    the creation of the file will be no risk just using odin :)

    plug phone into computer
    click the bat on your computer
    press any key
    wait... could take like 15-20 mins
    when done look in the folder on your computer and you will find PDA.tar
    that should work in odin
    good luck

    Google sprint L710 root and use theirs.

    I'm using twrp and I'm having zero problems.

    I'm surprised there's still no development but I'm enjoying my stock s3.

    Will I need to flash CWM or TWRP to be able to ADB during recovery or will it work with the stock recovery?

    Try it with complete stock, it probably won't let you mount so it won't work but is worth the try... pulling the file is harmless... try again after flashing recovery but before flashing root, that should work and will give a stock boot img... all else fails do it after root and that will at least give an as close to stock ss possible. ...

    For some reason my recovery has failed to work on three different S3's... I can't even get adb access in recovery with root... I have to root using sprints unsecure boot img using SGS3toolkit, so my boot.img/ kernel is spirnts and Its not the same, some things don't work.

    A nandroid from cwm is easy I am suprised no one has put a copy out... but odin backup it by far superior, and for me (as of now) its the only security I have.
