    Try my thread. All the links ever. http://forums.androidcentral.com/spr...ky-please.html

    Try cm10.2 as I recall it's stable and ready for daily use.

    P.S. please try and +1 for sticky. It appears as though the mods are ignoring me.

    Hey john, noob here. I'm looking to root my sprint s3, but updated to 4.3. Question is were you able to root with mk3 (knox)? If so, how & what are you currently running? Thanks in advance!

    I WAS able to root.

    -Download Odin

    -downloaded the deodexed/odexed (which ever works) stock 4.3 rom (rooted) zip. And the knox removal zip. And supersu zip. move all these zips to an ext sd card or int memory of your phone to access later in recovery mode (connect phone to computer, open "phone" and drag files right into phone with the rest of the files in your phone)

    -put phone in download mode

    -flash THE LATEST VERSION of philz recovery using Odin. You can look up how to do this if you don't know. (make sure "restart phone" box in Odin is NOT checked. Remove battery after "pass". Wait a few seconds.put battery back in. And start phone in recovery)
    -If you somehow mess up the previous step you should probably start over.

    -reboot in recovery

    FIND RECOVERY AND BACK UP OPTION. PERFORM A BACK UP(INTERNAL OR EXTERNAL MEMORY). THIS IS A NANDROID BACKUP. MAY TAKE SEVERAL MINUTES. REQUIRES A LOT OF SPACE. BUT ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY!!!

    -in recovery do a factory reset. Wipe and install new os. (This will not delete internal memory. Ex: pictures, music or the 3 zip files you just put on there.)


    -in recovery mode go to ad zip. Go to internal sd or ext sd(wherever you put the files. Look around real good) load them and reboot.

    First reboot took me anywhere from 3 to 5 min. Allow up to ten before you get worried. I'll post a link with much better instructions and files.

    PHILZ recovery is very IMPORTANT. After you get root access and supersu to work, feel free to change to whatever recovery you want. But I tried twrp and normal cwm and it did not work to get root.

    Also I was able to flash cm11. (4.4 kit kat)

    I've read we can't flash older custom roms for other reasons that I'm not informed enough to explain. Let me know what you're able to flash.

    So I rooted today, used the CFAutoroot method, super easy. Here's what I did, downloaded odin, chainfires cf autoroot, moar rom, & mk3modem. So I flashed cf autoroot, phone rebooted, knox warning appeared so supersu kept crashing. Went to app manager & turned off superuser, download from play store again & disabled knox as prompted. Downloaded titanium backup & backed up phone info. Downloaded goo manager & installed twrp, rebooted into recovery. Flashed mk3 modem, flashed updated mk3 4.3 moar rom, rebooted & restored titanium backup. Now I'm running awesome moar rom, no knox warnings, no prompt for ota updates, just pure awesomeness. Just thought I'd share my experience, this forum is awesome.

    I installed MOAR, 7.1, and I like it. I have had CM before, it is also good, but I wanted something based off touchwiz (MOAR also has other non touch wiz options too)

    Biggest and best rom I have ever used would be the rootbox variants. Mibox, vanilla rootbox and just plain old rootbox. Best roms for stability/battery life/options and customization. Check out my rom list at top of forum.
