How to Root Galaxy S3 on Android 4.3/4.4.2! [NEW]

Here’s an updated tutorial for rooting all Galaxy S3 models including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Canadian, US Cellular, MetroPCS, Cricket, GT-i9300, GT-i9305, and even Galaxy S3 Mini.   (It will not work on Verizon S3 as it has a locked bootloader.)

This will work on the following S3 models:

AT&T SGH-i747 T-Mobile SGH-T999/SGH-T999L Sprint SPH-L710 Canadian SGH-i747M US Cellular SCH-R530 MetroPCS SCH-R530M Cricket SCH-R530C GT-i9300 GT-i9305 Galaxy S3 Mini GT-i8190/GT-i8190N

How to Install Galaxy S4 Camera on Galaxy S3!

For those of you who want to take a peek at the future, you can now install Galaxy S4 camera on your Galaxy S3 GT-i9300!

This is a “ported” version from Galaxy S4 leaked firmware. Because it’s a ported version not everything is working but you can install it to try some new features like Eraser Photo, Sound and Shot, Night, and some of the working features. 360 Photo Sphere mode is included which is not working but this is good news since with Android 4.2.2 update there should be Photo Sphere coming to S3 also soon.


How to Enable T-Mobile Wifi Calling on AT&T Galaxy S3!

For those of you who want to run your AT&T Galaxy S3 on T-Mobile, I have good and bad news for you.

First, the bad news is that the AT&T Galaxy S3 does not support T-Mobile 1700Mhz bands for 3G/4G, meaning you will be stuck on edge speeds although voice will work fine.  Also, you do have to unlock the phone first to use it on T-Mobile (I used Cellunlocker.net to unlock SIM).  But for using outside of the U.S. such as Europe and Asia, you should be able to get full 3G/HSPA+ support.


How to Dual Boot Custom ROMs on Galaxy S3!

For those of you who want to dual-boot 2 different custom ROMs on your Galaxy S3, the latest Siyah kernel supports dual-booting 2 different Jelly Bean ROMs.  ICS ROMs are NOT SUPPORTED but so long as you use Jelly Bean custom ROMs, you can dual-boot them.

Currently Siyah kernel is only available for international Galaxy S3 GT-i9300 models, please do not try this on your dual-core U.S./Canadian models!


How to Root Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean or ICS!

Here’s an updated root method for rooting your Galaxy S3 GT-i9300.  Please do not use this root method unless you have GT-i9300 international model.  If you didn’t buy your Galaxy S3 in the U.S. or Canada, you most likely have the GT-i9300.



How to Install ClockworkMod(CWM) Recovery on Galaxy S3!

Here’s how to install ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery on any Galaxy S3 including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and GT-i9300. (Also use AT&T if you have Canadian GS3.)

I know some of you on Canadian users were having trouble using ROM Manager to install CWM Recovery to install CM10 ROM so this will allow you to manually install the official ClockworkMod Recovery manually via ODIN.


App2ExtSD – How to Save Apps to External MicroSD for U.S./Canadian Galaxy S3!

This is a hack that that allows you to swap internal storage with your external SD card so you can increase your app data storage.

All credits go to original i9300 App2ExtSD Hack by mattiadj. I simply hacked it to work with U.S. versions and also I’ve added code so it will disable this feature when you don’t have a microSD card inserted (app storage will default to internal when no microSD card is inserted).
