    Today i chose to root my phone. I did everything like they said in one popular tutorial how to root. Everything went will and no errors in odin, or downloading the root. But after the download, it reboots and goes back to download mode. Cant get out of it, i can get to recoverymode and factory reset, but it does not work. Every time booting the phone ut goes automaticly to download mode. Here is a video made by myself

    What model S3 do you have ?
    You might have to flash the stock firmware and choose a different root method

    Since you used Odin as part of the root process you tried, should be easy for you to return to stock.
    You need to download the firmware for your country and carrier then use Odin to flash it.

    Create a free account. Download speed is slow,about 30-45 min but best place for Samsung firmware.

    If you choose to try and root again, Download SuperSu update zip and copy to SD card.
    https://download.chainfire.eu/696/supersu/

    Download TWRP recovery tar to PC. Get 3.0.2-1
    https://dl.twrp.me/i9305/

    Flash TWRP using Odin. Go to options tab in Odin and uncheck Auto Reboot. To prevent the stock recovery from overwriting TWRP, unplug phone and remove battery when Odin gives you Pass.
    Replace battery then boot into recovery using the button combo. Power + volume up + home till phone starts to boot and release power.
    Hopefully you will boot into TWRP.
    In TWRP , select Install, locate the SuperSu update zip and select it.
    Swipe arrow at bottom to begin flash.
    When flash finished, select reboot system.
    When phone reboots, open SuperSu app and follow instructions to update binary.

    Done. You can download root checker app to verify root. Before you get carried away making changes, boot back into recovery and make a stock backup and save to SD card. Backups are your friend.
