While we are actually new to Android, and apparently loving whatever we see, this is now when we start-up with the underground manipulations with the device, to make it more customizable than ever, and more user friendly. Talking about rooting Galaxy S3 device, let me first make some things clear for you. Rooting allows you to go deep further beyond the permitted walls of the operating system, just in order to use other tweaks and tricks to enhance your device. Where rooting is done to add more capabilities to your Android smartphone, it can be dangerous for the device if done in some wrong way with improper tools. In this post I’ll be guiding you on how you can root your newly purchased Samsung Galaxy S3, however below are some ‘to be taken care of’ points before you startup with the tutorial.
Root Galaxy S3- Precautions:
NOTE: Go ahead only if your device matches the exact model number, i.e GT-i9300. If it contains some suffix, it is not the right day for you. Stop the process and do not go any further. Gadgec will not be responsible for any loss made to you or your device.
The tutorial is based on my personal experience with my friends newly purchased Galaxy S3. If you think there is an easier method, feel free to mention it in the comments section below.
