  1. HELP !!!! I fail error appears (Auth)

  2. It was a great deal to visit this blog. It has so much of amazing content. I was very happy to see this content.


  3. i want to know what exactly is the benefit to root this variant of the Galaxy S3 because I have yet to find a way to install a custom recovery to flash any roms because they all require an unlocked bootloader. I hate Verizon and Samsung with so much of my being it's not even funny. I have 5 phones, and 4 of them are Samsung Verizon phones. Each is a piece of junk because of the bootloaders. I have never in my life seen such spite. They seek to be in control and have pretty much have been accused of possibly violating some legislation that prohibits this type of things according to some people but I have no idea how true it is. But I would tend to believe they get away with alot of things that are too technical for law makers to understand and inherently make judgemenet for or against so it continues to happen even on new devices. If the world was more educated to what Samsung and Verizon and even other carriers might be doing with their Samsung devices, I think we would all be buying Google variants or at least considering the LG variants that not only have built in developer modes with end user toggles for unlocking bootloaders, but they give us immediate ability to unlock phones to run on any other GSM carrier worldwide without having to deal with the carrier or manufacturer. Samsung and Verizon, and even AT&T on some models, have slapped people in the face and most people did not even realize it happened. Oh how some people might flip out if they actually knew what has been going on with the carriers and Samsung. It's just unreal it keeps happening. Someone please give me a ROM list for SCH-i535 variant running 4.4.2 with root. The bootloader is still locked. That is why I say, root access on this phone is just a worthless idea at this point. We are being forced to buy updated equipment unless we want to remain in the past but hey, when everyone finally figures out what is happening, they will gladly get new updated phones..... and switch carriers in the process since most offer killer free or discounted deals for switching. BY BY VERIZON and SAMSUNG!
