    So I unrooted my S3 a few months ago and now i want to Root it again. When i plug my phone into my computer, it says "USB Device not recognized" I have the driver and it always says "The driver was not installed successfully" What do I do? It will be connected to casual for a few minutes than BAM! disconnected. the phone still charges and i can't root my phone because of this!

    Download SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones Install it with the phone not connected to the computer unless you're told to connect it.

    If it doesn't install, what operating system are you running in your computer?

    Also, make sure you don't have kies running in the background.

    Perhaps try a different usb cord or usb port?
    A reboot of the computer wouldn't hurt either. (I had that issue once ;) )
