    Safestrap has been made to work with OTA'd phones now, so there's now hope for your phone if you took the OTA:

    What am I missing? I see a bunch of files for the S4, but nothing specifically for the S3 on Verizon (d2vzw).

    What you pointed out is a method to ROOT the S3; the OP is pointing out a method to load/install alternate Recovery software and to install alternate ROMs, which up to now has been impossible on 4.3 firmware on Samsung phones due to the Knox component in the bootloader.

    Okay, here's the original announcement that I saw, haven't looked for any more yet...late with this since I was just catching up on forums. over at xda-developers site:



    Notice that the phone in the picture is an S3, I'm sure that there will be more to come on this in the near future. They just got it working couple of days ago.

    after I extract the install.bat file and run it, on the cmd window I get [*] fixing folder structure[*] Testing adb usability
    and closes out when i try to continue

    I noticed that on the screen shot in the article, the commands are without[*]. Any idea as to why that is?

    Thanks in advance!!!! can't wait to root and see what I can do to better my battery life which is awful right now

    Did you open a CMD window as Administrator and then run the install.bat file, or did you just double-click it? If the latter, try the former.
