E: signature verification failed Then the installation process stops…so close to end.

Please use version 1. Do u know if this will work for sprint SPH-L model? And can u help with any info to rboot this model. Please tell me one thing… there is SuperSU app in my S3 but there are no apps configured how to configure them??
You need to download rooted apps.

How to Flash a New ROM to Your Android Phone
SamsungComposite not found for unload request. Am having the same issue kernel Kext com. SamsungACMData not found for unload request. Rooting worked fined on my GS3. OK, so the pit file runs smoothly and the S3 reboots automatically. It worked perfectly, I have not put any rom, I left the samsung. My question is, just leave the update of samsung but when applied has failed. No need to upgrade? You will need to unroot to get the updates. I will post another easier method though for update soon. No will not work but I will post root method soon.
I figured. And boot into Recovery right away. Newer ICS 4. It did not work for me. I started to boot, then I pushed on the buttons. So, I should not allow the device to be even close to normal boot after battery removing? Thanks, Max. Now i see CWM-based Recovery v5. Thx Max! That advice worked great for me!! Thanks Justin. Will this root method work for the verizon version of the gs3? Thanks in advance! Has that been squared away?
Best of luck! I installed the recovery and immediately pull the batt as i have the newer software installed. Phone rebooted and the recovery was overwritten. Is there a permanent way to have the CWM recovery in phones having the newer software?? W:Unable to get recovery. No this does not, for Sprint, I suggest you use Windows, heimdall does not support U. So I used Odin3 on my windows to install the ClockWorkmod on my phone. What should I do? Any suggestions?
You are in stock recovery, the newer software version overwrite the stock recovery. So I need to install the clockworkmod on my phone again using Odin3? Thanks so much, your the best! Reboot into CWM Recovery using the buttons and it should work fine. If the description is still relevant? Any ideas? I am unable to find odin in mac? Do i need to do it using a windows pc? The only ptoblem i m facing is that m not getting the clockworkmod recovery as it appears in the video because i had gone for an update earlier.
HI, Max , i was migrate from iphone after using it for 3 years , And have successfully rooted my sgs3 using mac and your instruction above in first attempt.. I have one problem though, I have received an OTA update today, and, after downloading, the device reboots in ClockworkMod giving errors, instead of actually updating itself. So, what I wanted to ask is this sorry for my little experience, this was my first rooting, ever :. The reason I rooted my phone is to have total control of filesystem and install Linux on it so I can add BT mouse, BT keyboard, video out, and transform it into a full computer.
And also there are a many droid apps and scripts I like, that either require root access or a command line. Other than that I am satisfied with stock ROMs for now! This is just my opinion of course.. So, have I understood the process exactly? In my opinion this is still safer, because you flash only the recovery partition, over and over with the same trusted image, you do not flash the main OS with new and different ROMs of untrusted sources every time.
If someone wants to take control of thousands of devices at one time, publishing a hacked ROM, you are safe. If a broken ROM starts circulating on the web, you are safe. And still root. What do I flash inside the recovery partition? Yes it is possible, you need to unroot then take OTA.
Yes, if you have custome rom with ato Latest firmware upgread xxlfb.. The only reson i want that in my rooted phone is , i like nnew keyboard and As per my friend noticed it has improved battry lifeto his phone. I have gone through many other vebsite where i could find, The way but that all can. So yes there is a custome rom available which i can download from other website which has method for windows user but how can i install it on rooted phone Using mac?
For windows user , they can easily do it using odin as per my friend told me So dont we have simmilar thing for mac users..?? Sorry about my little knowlodge. Hello Max, I followed the whole process and everything worked great till i had to install the the SU and then noticed that i was still using the 3e recovery mode. I am running the 4.
Please Help!! I typed in the 3 commands to fix the error but i still get the error when flashing … any clue why? Thanks again. Hi, i just rooted my S3 this afternoon. So anyway i carried on to Step Instead it goes to a similar screen with the text in blue. So can you help me? By the way you have to use Heimdall again doing exactly the same steps but check no reboot in option. This guide does not work anymore. Can you update it? Same files, Heimdall 1.
Previously i read a FAQ somewhere and it says that usually we will be able to flash a rooted updated firmware. Question is where do i get it? Hi, it almost worked fine. After heimdall finishes flashing, take the battery out immediately then in, then boot straight into CWM Recovery by holding down Volume Up, Center, and Power also very quickly. I dont have a windows system I have a mac with mountain lion installed, will I brick my phone if I choose to root with this instructions mentioned on this post…? Try flashing again in Heimdall, as soon as done flashing, hold down Volume Up and Center Home button for 10 seconds, you will be in ClockworkMod Recovery.
Does this root method work with the sprint version? What does that exactly mean? Is there a newer version of the phone that has been released since these instructions that will not root through them? In the terminal stage. I copied and pasted 1st line and then asked me for my password but when i type nothing comes up. I just pressed enter and it says sorry, try again. Plz help. I have tried to do the recommended maneuver pull out the battery in odin mode without success.
Cuz this is the only tutorial on how to root using a mac. I only see a reference to i I have rooted an Atrix2 with success, so I understand the details are very important. I would like to know if I could do the same thing with dr S3, the same simple terminal commands. Thanks for the article. I had to do this as well.
Also, it was tough getting my fat fingers OFF the buttons, as it restarted from ClockworkMod right away. If you hold it too tight or loose or who knows what… it picks restart before you have a chance to select the CWM SuperUser…. Try reflashing using heimdall then immediately as soon as it finishes, hold down Volume Up and Center Home together for 10 secs. Frist of all, thank you very much for this tuto. I have read somewhere that there is a problem with the release : should be the 2 and I have the 3.
But I have not understood what it is and how I have to change that. Thank you very much in advance Raphael. How can you root the GS3 I using Mac?? There has to be a code or something to taylor to this model in specific. How can a phone do soooo much yet screw the simple stuff. Initialising connection… Detecting device… Claiming interface… Setting up interface…. All help is greatly appreciated. To be honest, if everyone is having problems using this method to root the Galaxy S3 and we are doing everything step by step as he instructed, it must no be us doing the wrong steps.
Kind of a noobish question- just got my Galaxy S3 today Evo 4g finally died. I had my Evo rooted and tried several ROMs and liked it all-. I have not rooted my S3 yet. Is there a chance that the OTA update when ever it comes out to Jelly Bean will make my phone un rootable? Just try slowly again and read everything on FAQ at the bottom of the instructions on this page, you will get it.
This video was shot back in June, now its October. It worked so far. Is that common? Currently using CM Using the international version of SGS3. Went thru all the instructions on my macbook pro running mountain lion. Android Transfer did not work, copied the CWM file thru dropbox, onto the external sd of my device. Got stuck 10 times at the step number 11 as it would always end up in android recovery mode and not cwm mode.
Tried flashing again times, but heimdall refused to recognise the device. The flashing worked and the device did not go into auto reboot once the flashing finished. Then pressed volume up, power and home buttones for 10 secs and i was in cwm mode finally —- phew Then followed steps 12 and onwards…. But, whenever i try to get into CWM mode, it automatically takes me to the stock recovery mode only…dont know why it does this even though my phone is now rooted.
I had the same issue. You just have to re-flash it again and take the battery out when the Samsung Galaxy logo comes on when it reboots. It should work and its works for me now because I am using Cyanogenmod Hi MAX…. Im Using MacBook Pro Need help. I uninstalled kies…. I tried different computers… and I keep getting an interface error… what should I do? Hi Max.. Do you have i??? Hi, Im Harry from Germany and my English is not so well. Do you have an Update? Hope so. Ending session… Rebooting device…. Thank you for the great post, I did everything as you posted up until file transfer app, which didnt work for me so i used airdroid and put the CWM file in my sd card under applications folder.
I pressed volume up home and start buttons as directed but had the android with a cube in the belly came out. I read what this question below but it didnt help me either for i dont know anything about ODIN, I believe that can only work with windows and i have mac, i do not know how to fix it. Could you please help me? I can only enter download mode and cannot even access recovery mode even though I had CWM installed. Copying and redistribution is encouraged. Initialising connection… Detecting device… Claiming interface… Setting up interface… Checking if protocol is initialised… Protocol is not initialised.
PIT upload failed! I was having the same problem. I found that I had to do it immediately after the flash i. It took me a few goes but I got there in the end. Thanks for your feedback though. I was getting similar errors with Heimdal to those mentioned above. I closed Heimdal, rebooted phone, then put into download mode again. Re-opened Heimdal, went to utilities, clicked detect, once detected, went back to flash, put all of the files in, ticked no reboot, then flashed.
Holding UP was the key. Then I followed the rest of the instructions. I found some advice about not being able to get CWM after the root is complete in the comments of another post. When I had made my backup and clicked reboot, it asked me if I wanted to disable the stock recovery mode, I said yes.
