    I'm puzzled as to what's causing you not to be able to boot into ODIN. I'll see if I can dig up any info on not being able to boot into download mode but as I mentioned.. It seems rare as I couldn't search for anyone with that same issue.. normally people have issues not being able to boot into recovery... but I'll take another look to see if I can find a solution. I would use that one click program that I linked for rooting and unlocking the bootloader.. hopefully re flashing the files will fix whatever got screwed up.

    I know it sucks to do.. but have you tried factory resetting the phone?

    I spent 12 hours reading etc trying this n that to get outta a brick.. but i'm back up running and have the OTA upgrades to 4.1.2. try here it worked for me.

    Has no one figured out a way to root the SCH-i535 on 4.1.2 using Mac yet? I've searched everywhere and the only methods I've found only work on ICS. Someone, somewhere must have figured it out by now. If anybody has any tips post them please!!

    The last two pages have been descriptions of rooting woes. My dad's S3 should be arriving in the mail soon. I'd like to get him on AOKP's MR1 build 6 right away. Just to be clear, do the methods in the first post, #2 specifically, achieve root in the latest firmware? I've got a lot of experience rooting and flashing Motorolas, Samsungs, ereaders, tablets, etc. I'm no expert by any means. I just read... A LOT of what the real experts write. If these methods are still relevant, then I'll make them work. Thanks in advance.

    I've did some digging, and this appears to be the easiest and most current method. The others may work, but this is confirmed good with VRBMB1 Jelly Bean 4.1.2. Hope this helps.

    No problem. That was definetely the easiest guide I found to follow. Fully unlocked, rooted, and with custom recovery. What more could you ask for besides a good Rom to flash? I wish he had a donate button.

    Hmm. I don't know. I tried following that to root my Verizon and I got the "Your software is not authorized" warning upon bootup...couldn't even get into Recovery had to use Download and restore the ROM to the 'Stock' (4.0.4 I think it was).

    Followed every step to the letter. Yes, even the special step for us Verizon users.

    I believe my bootloader failed to unlock. But have no idea why.

    I'm trying to recall if Verizon pushed out any updates after 4.1.2; like a stealth patch. Because there's no other reason for this to have failed.

    I don't have access to a Windows box these days, and i'm pretty sure i have seen a guide to rooting and unlocking the bootloader on linux. Can anyone point me to a link, or some info on where to look? Anyone done this using Heimdall instead of Odin?
    I have had troubles in the past trying to root using a windows virtual machine on one of my Linux computers.

    ive got a question, I just unrooted my sons vzw gs3. in the instructions it says to reset the flash counter, then flash the bootchain via odin, then the stock rom via odin.

    I used triange away and it was successful, then i flashed the bootchain via odin and it was successful also ( i unchecked auto reboot and f reset so that i could flash the rom right after the boot chain. Then i tried to flash the rom via odin and it locked up on me. I rebooted into download mode and it finally flashed the rom. the phone is up and running again but when it reboots i see the little unlocked symbol.

    how do i relock it? it is obvious that its been tampered with.

    bro, you dont even want to go there. cause once you lock the boot loader then yer up crap creek and no paddle.. sure you will gets OTA updates to 4.1.2 but its about worthless. If you lock boot chain you cant do anything much and even then the phone may lock up (bricked) nothing but a piece of junk.. but there is a place to go to rework the phone like it had come ooutta the box.. then yer in over yer head as there isnt any up to date stuff for the 4.1.2 no root, no recovery, and apparently no one gives a crap.. that where i am now.. oh be sure if ya brick it bad.. just go to odin right click and run as administrator.. to get back where you are or beyond. trust me theres not much out there for a 4.1.2 >>> for the 4.2.2 seems to be on the rise and 4.1.2 left in the dust. heres the one file you will have to odin to get outta the brick when you get there .welp i cant paste it but its there look for GEEK and the fix is there.. all of this a taste of the crap I am going through right now...

    Thanks for the reply! The unlock symbol is gone when I reboot. We did take 2 otas that brought it up to 4.1.2. But it's all good because the phone is getting replaced anyway because of a bad charging port. New phone will be here sometime this week.

    Binary flash counter is back to zero
    Firmware is back to "normal"
    Unlock symbol is gone
    Stock image is installed with no traces of root.
    It's ready to go back to Verizon.

    Edit... btw, I rooted this gs3 when it had 4.1.2, wonder why you're having problems rooting?

    wanting to root my verizon galaxy S3(SCH-i535) with a mac OS X version 10.6.8. I was looking around and this seems to be the easiest way for a novice but I cant get the links to work to download the 3 files. Can anyone help out a novice at this? this is the files i can't seem to get to. Also will these work on a mac?

    Hi all,
    Since the last update to the Verizon S3 (v 4.1.2, Build # JZ054K.I535VRBMD3, Kernel v 3.0.31-1121237) has the rooting process changed at all? Can I still follow these instructions?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    I have tried following the instructions and it did not work for me. I read somewhere (sorry dont remember link) that the method works as long as you DONT accept the new update. Some people have said they lost root in then later applying the update.

    Same here. I found essentially the same instructions at XDA and the link to the files is good. I just downloaded them, myself. Good luck. I'm still waiting for my S3 to arrive, so I'm pre-geeking.
