For those of you who want to root your Verizon Galaxy S3 SCH-I535, here’s how to do it using ODIN. You will need a Windows computer for this root method, I will have another guide soon with a Mac and Linux, you can sign up for our e-mail newsletter if you want to be alerted when that’s available.
Step 1. Turn off your Verizon Galaxy S3. Then hold down Volume Down, Center Home, and Power buttons together for about 5 seconds.
Step 2. When you see the warning screen, hit the Volume Up button.
Step 3. When you see “Downloading” mode, connect a micro-USB cable from your Verizon Galaxy S3 to your computer.
Step 4. Download the rooted Stock ROM and ODIN, then unzip both zip files:
(UPDATE: Use the VRBLK3 for rooting latest)
Step 5. Next go ahead and run the ODIN program by double-clicking on odin3 v1.85.exe.
You should see a yellow-highlighted box with a random number. If you don’t, download and install Samsung Kies then unplug/plug your Galaxy S3. You should now see it.
Step 6. Next DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE but hit the PDA button and choose the file stock.vzw_root66.tar then hit “Start”.
Step 7. This will basically install a stock rooted ROM on your Verizon Galaxy S3 with root. It should take about 10-15 minutes. Once done, you will see “PASS!” green box and your phone will reset.
Step 8. Once rebooted, you will be rooted with Superuser app in your app drawer!
Step 9. You can run any rooted apps to verify Superuser root powers!
Step 10. If you want to install custom ROMs, you can download and install ROM Manager from the Play Store.
Step 11. Next choose “Flash ClockworkMod Recovery”.
Step 12. Choose “Samsung Galaxy S3 (Verizon)”.
Step 13. Any time you want to get into ClockworkMod Recovery, choose “Reboot into Recovery”.
