Hello All,

I'm new to Android rooting (but am an experienced iOS jailbreaker).

I got a Samsung Galaxy S3 (Verizon) yesterday which got the over-the-air update to 4.1.1. (Jelly Bean).

I'm a Mac user and found this guide to rooting the S3 on OSX: How to Root Galaxy S3 on Mac OSX! U.S./Canadian [Only Ice Cream Sandwich] ~ Android Rootz | Source for Android Rooting, ROMS, Tricks and more!

Will this method work for a phone with 4.1.1 installed on it? if not, is there another method that will? Thanks!

That's the method I used prior to the JB update on Ics. Then I just flashed clean rom so I had rooted JB. Right now I doubt it will still work but I'm sure someone is working on it.
