    well i went ahead with it and everything is fine, however i havent got a root?
    i went into odin with usb debugging on, in download mode, odin showed my idcom and was blue and said added. added the cf root pda, clicked start and it came up with the green pass which i thought was brilliant and so it booted as normal. Then however my home screen started to flicker and was unusable, restarted the phone and seems to be fine but i have downloaded about 3 root checkers and they all say im not rooted even when i got the green pass in odin, what has happened?

    Everything you did sounds perfect mate. All i can say is try again or try a different programme or download from a different site (the rooting programme, not odin)
    Good luck bro. Usualy the green pass is a YES!


    MERRY XMAS!!!X

    I dont have your phone so i cant address the rooting methods.. but the new versions of odin turn blue not yellow. Color in the box doesnt matter as long as it addresses a com port

    Edit: When you go the the app drawer do you see a SuperUser app or an app that says SU?

    If you are simply trying to root your I9300 why don't you try this. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=35512626

    hmm thats odd. Next to "Disable exploit" is the box checked or unchecked?
    try rebooting then trying the app again

    We on same phone in neighbouring countries bro, Syiah works fine on stock 4.1.2 on mine.

    Dont check boxes on odin other than PDA..... i believe you will kill your s3 lol.

    Try a different download site for Siyia, unzip it n put the .tar into PDA with box checked, put phone in download mode...

    Have you done a back up with CWM first mate?

    THANKS A LOT!!! I was waiting for that yellow box for about 10 minutes, rebooting the phone, doing it again, checking the settings, etc. Turns out mine was the blue one.
