  1. My model number only says
    SCH-I605. NOT SCI - I605 (t0ltevzw)
    Where would I find the t0ltevzw pay. Can I still root the device with this guide? Thank you some much. Pete

  2. Yeah, not working for me either

  3. Doesn't work for me. Step 10 says "FAIL", not pass.

  4. It fails on step 10 ....... I wish I could go back to 4.1.2 everything was better with bootloader unlock now I can't even change my damn ROM

  5. it does not work .......whoever made this posts need to get their sh*t straight .......before you post your crap try it yourself ....

  6. Didn't work for me either! A person would think with all these so-called highly educated people in the world, that someone could figure out, how to root the VRUAND3 upgrade!! There is nothing on the web either, I mean nowhere. You can usually find something on the XDA-Developers Forum but they must be off SEDUCING THE DOG somewhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. This didn't work on my i605 with vruand3 firmware.

  8. Wish it did, but alas not.


  10. What do we need to do to get this to work?

  13. Did not work for me either.
    I downloaded which contained Odin 3.07, but I already had Odin 3.9 so I used it.

    I extracted 4_3-I605VRUAND3-ODIN\CF-Auto-Root-t0ltevzw-t0ltevzw-schi605.tar.md5.

    Started Odin 3.9 in admin mode followed instructions as stated. Everything went as described until item number 10. I received a FAIL! message. This is what Odin showed:
    Enter CS for MD5..
    Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
    Please wait..
    CF-Auto-Root-t0ltevzw-t0ltevzw-schi605.tar.md5 is valid.
    Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
    Leave CS..
    Odin v.3 engine (ID:7)..
    File analysis..
    Get PIT for mapping..
    Firmware update start..
    NAND Write Start!!

    Complete(Write) operation failed.
    All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

    By the way this is what my phone showed after following instructions in step 3:
    (red) ODIN MODE
    (bright white) PRODUCT NAME: SCH-I605

    (bright white) CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
