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.
THIS GUIDE IS ONLY FOR OLDER VERIZON GALAXY S3, if your Android version is 4.3 or 4.4.2, DO NOT USE THIS ROOT METHOD!!!
Step 1. Turn off your Verizon Galaxy S3. Then hold down Volume Down, Center Home, and Power buttons together for about 5 seconds.
