  1. Will this method also unlock the bootloader and wipe the phone? I plan to keep the stock rom and do not require that the bootloader be unlocked. I only need root access and do not need to wipe the phone.

  2. I have tried this with a Sprint Samsung G3, SPH-L710, Android 4.2.2 (auto download from Sprint, L710VPUDND8. Doesn't work.

    Output from Odin 3.09:
    Odin v.3 engine (ID:5)..
    File analysis..
    Get PIT for mapping..
    Firmware update start..
    NAND Write Start!!
    RQT_CLOSE !!
    RES OK !!
    Remain Port .... 0
    All threads completed. (succeed 1 / failed 0)

    During reboot (after the red droid), I get the following message:
    Android is Upgrading
    starting apps

    Then, system goes into normal seen screen, followed shortly by:
    "Unfortunately, SuperSU has stopped."

    Root checker output:
    Sorry, This device does not have proper root access.

    I've tried with my normal setting, then tried again after removing the microSD and doing a factory reset. Same results.

    1. Update to my May 30th post. I finally did get it to work on the Sprint Samsung GS3. When I rooted the phone back when it had 4.1 and 4.2, I copied on a and had a recovery ROM that allowed me to install SuperSU (an old free version) which rooted it and then I could do an update to the newest version via the App Store. However, this time that didn't work. I not only had to uninstall SuperSU and SuperSU Pro before trying to root 4.4, but I had to delete the off my internal SD card, and THEN try re-rooting. Maybe that wasn't what did it, but it did eventually work after I did that.

      Strangely, I didn't delete when I rooted 4.3 using this exact same method and it still worked, so who knows?

  3. I can verify that the method above did work on my GS3, SPH-L710. However, after reboot, I also got the message that SuperSU had stopped. I checked and it was installed. So I went and updated SuperSU to the latest version (v1.94) via the market. I then went to SuperSU settings and installed it into the system and rebooted. I now had root access and SuperSU is now running properly.

  4. Tried it, didn't work, got the same results as Chad. Rooting for versions 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 had worked in the past. I had SuperSU and SuperSU Pro installed previously, and it said that neither were installed afterwards. I reinstalled them, and SuperSU said that it couldn't run, was missing the binary and couldn't install it. So I uninstalled both, repeated all these steps here, it still did not put SuperSU on it nor root it according to Root Checker. I have Sprint. I've heard various carriers tweak their ROMs to disallow rooting using current methods. What does the author of this article use?

  5. Tried it several times. No luck. Does not root. Any way to root? I was rooted. Went back to get update. Now I regret it.
