    Unhappy HELP! I can't root my samsung galaxy s3

    I rooted my s3 and it was installed perfectly. i followed everything on net about the odin and everything, and its says passed. the reason that i wanted to root my phone was to downgrade my my s3 to ics because jellybean makes my battery phone drain easily. Then i followed everything on how to downgrade the android version, it was rebooted, factory reset and everything but it still in the latest version!. Due to that failed process, i rooted again my s3 , and it says failed and
    <ID:0/003> Added!!
    <ID:0/003> Odin v.3 engine (ID:3)..
    <ID:0/003> File analysis..
    <ID:0/003> SetupConnection..
    <ID:0/003> Can't open the serial(COM) port.
    <OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
    also it doesn't recognized my phone in ODIN when it was on download mode. but when i open my phone normally the odin recognized it.

    and when im on download mode on s3 it says,
    ODIN mode
    product mode: GT-I9300
    CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: NO
    CURRENT BINARY: SAMSUNG OFFICIAL
    SYSTEM STATUS: OFFICIAL

    and when i checked to a root checker it says,
    this device does not have proper root access.

    PLEASE HELP ME.. i wanna fixed this.
    thanks in advance

    Odin is very sensitive to connection quality. Try rebooting the PC. If you're using a USB hub, switch to a USB port on the computer. Try a different USB cable. If none of that works, try reinstalling the Samsung drivers on your PC.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    I have spent forever watching Youtube and following it. It says on the computer that is was unsuccessful, that was on safe root. Then I tried towelroot, my phone will not open the site and my computer will not open it either. If anyone knows please tell me before i lose it. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 Thank you
