    Default Galaxy S3 Mini: USB Debugging problem

    Hello! Pls help!

    I'm about to root my phone and I have to enable USB Debugging

    When I check in the Developer Options, there is an option for USB Debugging, but it seems to be greyed out (nothing happens when I try to tick the check box).
    I already activated at the top right of the screen the on-off slider and the USB Debugging option remains greyed out.

    Tks!

    Is your S3 already connected to your laptop/pc via the usb cable when you noticed that the usb debugging box is greyed out?

    If so, just unplug first your phone from your laptop, and you should be able to tick the box already for the usb debugging mode option, just plug it back again to your laptop once your done ticking it.

    Were you able to get this resolved and get your phone rooted? If so, which rooting method did you use? Which version of Android are you running?

    If you want to root your device you may want to check out http://towelroot.com - depending on your model and firmware version/kernel date it may work for you.
