    Default Updated my s3 to JB 4.1.1 so I lost root, how do I get it back?

    I tried to root it with the files already have, but it kept saying "fail" in odin...can anyone point me in the right direction to get the correct files? thanks

    FWIW, I used the following files and followed the same process as initially followed.

    SuperUser.zip version from updater-script = ui_print("SuperSU v0.70 installer ZIP");
    CWM File = CWM_Recovery_6.0.1.2.tar

    Copied the SuperUser.zip to both internal and external storage just in case the external did not auto mount when flashing recovery.
    Flashed CWM, recovery, making sure NOT to auto restart. When it copied and said Success, I manually powered off and restarted in recovery mode, and then flashed the SuperUser file.

    Worked like a charm. Are you saying that ODIN will not flash the Recovery for you?
