AT&T T-Mobile and Sprint versions of the Samsung Galaxy S III now rooted

It was only a matter of time since Samsung already released the source code for the AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint versions of the Galaxy S III. That time has come as all three are now officially rooted. Special thanks have to go out to XDA member howtomen for the AT&T version and cyper_zero for the Sprint and T-Mobile version. Also dawgslayer69 posted that the Sprint method works with the T-Mobile version.

You will need the latest version of Odin to flash the kernel and ClockworkMod Recovery onto the device. All that’s left is to use ClockworkMod Revcovery to flash root. The only difference between the three different carrier versions is the files used, but interestingly enough, the T-Mobile and Sprint procedure is the same. Just hit the sources below for your appropriate model to get started.

Robert lives in upstate New York where he was born and raised. Technology was always his passion. His first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80 Color that used a cassette tape to save programs, and his first laptop was a Toshiba T1200FB that sported a CGA greyscale screen and two 720kb floppy drives (no hardrive). From the early 90’s through late 2011, he only owned Motorola phones starting with the MircroTAC all the way through to the Droid X. He broke that streak when he bought the Galaxy Nexus. Now he's sporting a Galaxy Note 4, and absolutely loves it. He has a wonderful wife and a 6 year old son. In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.

    Worked like a charm for me. Tried to install Cynogen Mod thought and it soft bricked my phone. Nice to have it rooted though…

      So it foamed your phone? There is brick and there is not brick. Nothing in between. It really grinds my gears they way people overuse the term brick.
