    Android 4.3 Stock Rom & Working Root & Recovery

    I have an early Christmas gift for all of our Galaxy S3 using friends here on CU! I have uploaded the update file I pulled from Samsung Kies. No, I will not upload to another file host so please do not ask.


    Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 Update



    (751 megabytes)

    1. Back up and factory reset your phone.
    2. Put your S3 into download mode by holding Volume down + Home while starting phone.
    3. Run the Odin app
    included with CF-Auto Root. It should ask for Admin permissions (Vista and later).
    4 . Click the PDA button.
    5 . Select "
    R530CVVUCMK3_R530CCRICMK3_R530CVVUCMK3_HOME.tar.md 5" Do not change any other settings.
    6. Click start and let it do its thing
    7. Enjoy



    Winar 5.0


    is required to extract the tar file FIRST. Older versions will not work.
    This is an
    Odin tar file and is not usable with CWM or TWRP.
    Back up your internal SD Card as this update WILL wipe it!



    CF-Auto-Root



    I am using the root method for the Samsung SCH-R530U which is the US Cellular Galaxy S3. I've been testing this for several hours without issue. After the initial root procedure update SuperSU. Then SuperSU will disable KNOX and you will have full root!!!
    THIS WILL trip the KNOX counter however.
    I take no credit, as I created nothing on the preceding page.

    1. Put your S3 into download mode by holding Volume down + Home while starting phone.
    2. Run the included Odin app. It should have for Admin permissions (Vista and later).
    3. Click the PDA button.
    4. Select "CF-Auto-Root-d2usc-d2usc-schr530u.tar.md5" Do not change any other settings.
    5. Click start and let it do its thing
    6. Update SuperSU from the PlayStore.
    7. Enjoy


    T.W.R.P 2.6



    Odin 1.85 (included with AUTOROOT) can be used to install TWRP 2.6.3.0! Verision 3.04 FAILED to flash TWRP. openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.0-d2cri.tar Is the latest version as of current.

    1. Put your S3 into download mode by holding Volume down + Home while starting phone.
    2. Run the Odin appincluded with CF-Auto Root. It should ask for Admin permissions (Vista and later).
    3. Click the PDA button.
    4. Select "openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.0-d2cri.tar" Do not change any other settings.
    5. Click start and let it do its thing
    6. Enjoy


    ClockworkMod 6.0.4.3

    I wanted to let everyone know that I have tried using CWM 6.0.4.3 and have had very mixed results. CWM was able create and restore my phone however after booting I was stuck in a "stopped working" loop. CWM also warned of possible loss of root and asked to fix it after restoring the backup. If I am able to get CWM to work I will ad it to this post.
    Enjoy hacking! As always, at you own risk of course

    Thanks! I've successfully updated (while rooted; but lost root) and re-rooted. Running smooth as butt-cheeks! Most of the update is just eye candy though

    It's going to be awhile before I get this. It's at 25% completed for two hours. Expect about 4 hours downloading time to receive the 4.3 goodies

    Edit: 4 hrs.dloading @ 70% can't wait!

    Thumbs up didn't read thoroughly

    For some reason I thought this was a zip file lol. Didn't see that it was a tar file til I tried to flash it. So my question is how do I go about flashing this? I'm not to familiar with the rar and tar stuff. Thanks

    Nvm I figured it out. Simple really with odin. Thanks again sandman

    You're welcome everyone! I know not everyone wants to install/use Samsung Kies.

    So far I am loving the update. Better battery life, lag free text deletion, better Bluetooth operability, and a few other things make this an update worth getting.

    I agree we need people like you on here. This update is great! Just like the vanilla Rom I used as my daily before. This is my new daily now. Even better with root. Two things though; 1. Should we lose our pictures when flash this? Luckily i saved mines to a cloud. And is there a known way to get cmw instead of twrp?
    I hate twrp love cmw

    Do you use the same steps in ODIN to root 4.3 like we did to root 4.1.2 ?

    Or can someone just make a simple video on how to root the phone using the CF-Auto Root method ?

    Thank you for the kind words SonaSam! Also thank you for the heads up on the internal SD. Mine was virtually empty before I flashed so I hadn't noticed. The main post has been updated
