    Hi I need help with my phone. I try to root it and it doesn't work. I don't want a Rom on there because last time I did I messed it up so bad that my radios got fried. Anyway I tried rooting my phone with the guide. I installed a tarp recovery and put superuser on the internal drive on the phone flashed it and all that happens is the notification saying superuser has stopped.

    When I originally rooted my phone I had problems with superuser crashing. Use SuperSU instead.

    Glad to see you got it working. You could have also used Philz to root the phone. It has the option built-in. I just sent you a PM with that info but it looks like you don't need it. :D

    Is my understanding that flashing philz as recovery and choosing root upon exiting will root also. Phil stopped support this month (bummer), but its a excellent recovery.

    No doubt. It freaking sux Philz is stopping development. I'm bummed.

    I was actually hesitant to use Philz when it 1st came out. Now I can't imagine life without it. Oh well, it is what it is. Looks like I'll be moving on to CWM touch when I can no longer use Philz. :cool:

    Amen to that brutha he most certainly did but to clear my intentions was there after we can no longer use it. Is what I was referring to n sad to see him walk away.



    Thank you Phil, Awesome work!!!!!!!!!

    Philz still works fine for the foreseeable future and when the day comes to switch, I am going to check out TWRP. Phil says he is going to switch to TWRP himself on his own phone.

    I assume we still don't know what will happen with Lollypop on the S3. No official upgrade but probably custom versions. Who knows what this will mean for recoveries.

    Im hearing lollipop is locked down pretty hard for root. Ill keep my custom rom till the phone peters out and I upgrade..

    Sometimes bein late to the new phone game means less frustration waiting for development.

    That is so true. What many people fail to realize when a new device is released is that it takes time, sometimes months, to root, get a recovery, and get decent ROMs built. Going out and getting one when it's 1st released really isn't a good idea if you are planning to root and flash custom builds. :thumbup:
