    Default How to Root The US Cellular Samsung Galaxy S3

    I'm just copying this over from the TeamUSCellular forum. The sprint Root method works for all carriers, including US Cellular.

    Very simple walkthrough

    [YT]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoEVDgjTTdg[/YT]

    Links:

    Link:
    Instructions for CWM recovery to enable rooting and customization of all SGS3 LTE variants. This is confirmed to work great on Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile and Rogers variants.

    Updated: 6/30/2012
    version 4: Excludes /data/media from backups.

    Link:
    Simply flash this.zip in CWM and your phone is rooted! This is the easiest method to root the stock Samsung ROM.

    Updated: 7/3/2012
    version 5: Now automatically cleans out old root files to prevent conflicts. This should fix failure to root.
    version 4: Removes /system/etc/install-recovery.sh and /system/recovery-from-boot.p left by OTA updates in order to preserve stock recovery. Read the CWM instructions carefully!

    Follow these insructions to unroot and restore the modification status to "Normal".

    Would the Sprint version work to unroot also?

    Easiest way to root I've found yet is with this toolkit. Install it, plug in your phone, choose USCC, root.

    Ya that's what I am gonna use but to unroot there's no uscc option just ATT Sprint and Tmobile and a few others. So which one would I use to unroot? Sprint? Like would it work if I used sprints or att version to unroot?

    Why do you want to un-root? Normally you would make your nandroid backup, then install your stock Odin.

    Just in case if I ever needed to unroot. Haha. This would be my first time rooting so I just have been reading up on it and making sure I can unroot too if needed. Haha. How do u make a nandroid backup? Sorry if it's a stupid question.

    If you use the toolkit you would want to install CWM. Once CWM is installed you boot to Recovery Mode and the nandroid backup is a menu option. You can backup to the device or to your SD card. I'll let you figure out which location might be best. Nandroid backs up everything on your phone and can be used to do a complete restore if you crash and burn.

    Is this before or after I root?

    I rooted last night using the toolkit. Very easy and very fast. I was amazed all this time I didn't root when it was that easy. I also did a nandroid backup. And backed up using titanium backup. What rom would you suggest I flash? Preferable a jelly bean build

    I like Cyanogenmod 10, most bugs are worked out, thinking about LiquidSmooth to change things up.

    Like if I was gonna flash a rom, you gotta do a factory reset....so how do I keep everything they way it is now? Titanium backup?

    Yes you will want to back-up with BOTH Titanium and Nandroid. Titanium for apps (what apps you had at the time of the back-up and their info) and nandroid for the current, in your case, stock rom. This is used if something happens after you flash a custom rom and something goes wrong. Itill be a stable rom to go back to, its like taking a image of you phone exactly how it is right now.
    Put titanium back up and all media(music, pics, videos and such) to external sd card. I also back up to my desktop just in case.
    After you flash, download titanium from app store and it will read the back up on you ext sd card and then you can restore your apps.
    And since you are going to a Jelly Bean rom i would just start from scratch on your system settings since doing a restore of that may cause all sorts of problems. At least it did for me.
