    Hi All
    Just got a SIII on Straight Talk running Verizon towers. Of course I want to root it or at least put a CWM on it.
    Is there anyway to do this on this phone? I see One Click Root has a root but the only luck I have had with roots are those from you guys. I do not trust any one else. I tried the rest and now will only use the best You Guys.

    Let me know. I searched the forum and have not seen anything here.

    Thanks  Waiting with baited breathe.

    Thanks droidhost I will wait to see what you find

    I have found this You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

    several people have commented that they used it and it worked to at least root the phone. I am not a tech so I rely on those who know what they are doing. I dont want to brick this phone since it was $300 was on sale though normally $400

    UPDATE*****I ran this method on the new phone and it worked***** :}   I now have TB running. Not sure why it worked on this phone and not the first but it worked.

    How about CWM? I saw on xda someone said there is one. I wish I would have copied the link.

    cybor462, that method will work. I just did my new ST Galaxy S3 and everything went flawless. I am trying to search out how to put CWM or TWRP on it. Everything that I read is about different model of the Galaxy s3 not the same model as the straight talk SCH-S086C. So I am cautious, don't want to brick this thing.

    Scotty i used that method and it bricked the phone. it would boot up but the screen started flashing and it would not stop like it was looping. i tried everything but could not fix it so since the phone was only 1 day old i brought it back to Walmart and they gladly gave me a new phone.

    As you may imagine i will wait for a tried and true root so i don't brick it again. Btw i love this phone so much better than the proclaim and got it for $299

    I found the same thing, everything out there is for the S3 but a diff model # but I assume they are the same phone maybe diff software.

    Does anyone know if the multi media  dock with charge, usb and hdmi ports sold for the other model S3 will work on this ST phone?

    Many write ups say they wont work on locked phones and I don't know why

    Hmmm, that's odd. I have done two more phone since and everything went flawless. Did you read the instruction on the
    Impactor website ? Did you check for the exploit ? Has your phone been patched to take care of the exploit ?

    That is odd but ,hey there will be more methods available sometime.

    I took a chance and installed the VERIZON GALAXY S3 TOUCH RECOVERY from You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.

    These are the step i took (i found this on XDA)

    1) downloaded this recover IMG (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login)
    2) Renamed it to "recovery" (no quotes), and placed it in the root of my sd
    3) downloaded Terminal Emulator from the playstore
    4)Run terminal and type: su (press enter)
         Then type: dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18 (press enter)

    NB: i take NO CREDIT for this. NB: DONT SCREW UP THE TERMINAL COMMANDS!!! YOU WILL BRICK YOUR PHONE!


    On the same site you can also find roms for the devise, however, you flash at your own risk buddy



    AS FOR YOUR ROOTING ISSUE...its kinda odd, i used it and it worked flawlessly and in 8 second...(my co-workers and i timed it). its one of the fastest rooting methods i have ever seen, if not the fastest.

    Hey gunslngr,
    Is the recovery image a stock image for the S3 ?  As for the roms, I am not interested in. I have a rooted stock S3 and am happy with it. I just would like to do a stock nandroid back-up. I foun.d TWRP RECOVERY FOR THE S3 but would like the clockwork mod depending what the imave is.

    The recovery that I posted is the clockworkmod recovery that i flashed on my device. Its clockworkmod touch. As for you not being interested in ROMs, that's fine. I merely posted that so that the other people perusing this forum can be informed properly.

    I know I think I got the reason. I was using my old Win XP system to do it and it is really a mess. The usb drivers are flaky at best. Tried reinstalling them but it does not work. I think there are other issues. This time round I used my Win 8 system and the usb drivers are correct and it works fine. I think that is what happened. not sure if there is a conflict or a virus or something on the XP machine but I am retiring it anyway.

    Information about this s3 is spread out over many threads and confusing to say the least. Im going to add to this confusion by adding a link that i think could help someone looking for information.

    I've got the ST GALAXY S3 SCH S698C . Im having trouble with the rooting process. Cydia is no longer working bto root it. I've rooted this model before flawlessly using cydia impactor but now I'm getting signature bugs unavailable message. The kernel is dated after Aug 2014. Maybe this is why? Really want to root this thing any help would be awesome.    Oh yeah teied towelroot.  Not supported yet. Thanx...

    Oh its nice to have clockworkmod again! I've been using this phone and I didn't want to void warranty but finally said screw it! I was concerned about renaming "recovery" and in the command it has "recovery.img" the file automatically adds ".img" so I went with it and no problems!

    I'm in the same boat. Same model, same date, same error. I hope a root will be discovered. I'm not going to switch to this new phone until I can get root and install DroidWall. There's just too many spy apps by default to let every app freely access Internet.

    I just rooted my Straight Talk Samsung S3 Sch-S968c this afternoon, also put on  Clockwork Recovery Mod, and finally cyanogenmod 11. Here's how, to root use cydia impactor found here You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login . For CWM I used odin and followed directions here  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login, and lastly installed KitKat via cyanogenmod with these instructions You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. No brick, no worries, worked great and is actually faster than stock rom
