    Hey all. Bought an S3 to use as a media center so there is no sim card in it. I have followed about 6 different guides on how to root the phone but it still won't root. I have rooted 5 phones before so I'm not new to this. Here's the info...
    CANADIAN Phone
    Model Number - SGH-i747M
    Baseband version - I747MVLUFOB1
    I installed Odin V3.07 on my computer and ran the program. Learned quickly about the battery pull as soon as Odin went green. No issues. Once I rebooted, I went into the Team Win screen and installed CF Auto Root D2Can D2VL SGHI747m and everything processed fine. However, once I rebooted again and went to my Root Checker (and Titanium Backup), the phone is not rooted. If anyone has any advice, I would be much obliged.

    Try Towel Root. If the kernel is earlier than June 3, 2014, it should root the phone. (Which rooting method works depends on 2 things - the model of the phone and the version of Android it's running.)
