    I was a fortunate soul, and just bought my Galaxy S 3 over Cyber Monday. So I updated it to the latest firmware version, and I think that's why I can't root my phone. I followed the guide to the T. The issue is that when I go into CWM, I get an error. Neither the internal or external SD card will mount. So when I go to look for Team Epic Root from Recovery v5 dot zip, it doesn't show up. Is there maybe an updated CWM floating around that will acknowledge my SD cards? I am desperately trying to root my S3. I've already tried the Poot + Ministro 2 combination (that's what worked on my older phone), but to no avail. Can someone help me? (I know, I know, I shouldn't have accepted the OTA update before attempting to root)
