The international Samsung Galaxy S3 received its root treatment way ahead of release, but we know having all these extra US variants makes it a bit harder for developers. It probably helps that all US variants are almost identical, though, as root access has already been achieved for the three US Galaxy S3 devices available.
It has only been a couple of days since AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile devices started hitting the streets (though with some delays). It goes without saying that developers are not going to let a phone of this magnitude slide through their curious fingers and have been hard at work. We now have root methods for all three versions of Samsung’s flagship device.
It is only a matter of time before those ROMs start becoming available, as the source codes have been released as well. As always, though, we advice that the light-hearted stay away from all of these geeky procedures. There is the usual risks of bricking your device and/or voiding your warranty, so only root your phone if you are willing to take all responsibilities and do your fair share of research.
If you are still down to start taking full advantage of this beast’s stunning specs and capabilities, you can hit the links below to start digging into your shiny devices. And don’t worry, Verizon users. We are sure a root method will be available for you soon after Big Red rolls this one out.
Did you get yours yet? Are you ready to root it, or are you holding off for now?
