Rooting your Android phone is a must thing to do if you want to take full advantage of it. Thanks to the open source nature of Android, you can do plenty of things with your phone without even having to root it.
You can install tons of launchers, third-party keyboards, live wallpapers and themes which can be easily downloaded from the Play Store. As you can see, there are many things you can do with a non rooted Android phone.
But if you really want to customize your phone, you have to root it. With root access, you can do so many things that you can’t normally do with a stock device. You can install custom ROMs, kernels, mods and even overclock your phone to make it crazy fast so you can play the most intensive game without any lag.
Rooting is a process that many people are afraid of doing. They are afraid that they will break or mess up their phone. While there is a slight chance that your phone can get damaged, it is certain that nothing bad will happen if you carefully follow the guides.
There are different tutorials about how to root different devices. A few years ago, rooting an Android phone was something that only advanced users were able of doing, but today, it is a very simple process that even unexperienced users can do.
You have heard about Towelroot before. It is a tool that can root many Android devices with one click. It is an application that users have to install on their phones and then follow the instructions. You don’t need to use a computer like you usually have to. Towelroot found an exploit on a few firmware versions which made it possible to root the Samsung Galaxy S3 without having to use a computer or CF Root.
The problem is that many users reported that it doesn’t work very well on the Samsung Galaxy S3 and it displays “Towelroot is not supported” error.
Another tool called Framaroot has been released which does the same thing as Towelroot but supposedly it supports the Galaxy S3 and its firmware updates. It works on Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 and S3 LTE GT-I9305.
How to root Galaxy S3 using Framaroot
- Download the Framaroot APK file.
- Open the app and tap on Install SuperSU.
- Wait for a few seconds. A message will show up saying “Success! Superuser and su binary installed. You have to reboot your device.”
That is it. Your Samsung Galaxy S3 has been successfully rooted using Framaroot.
