CF-Root is not working on your Samsung Galaxy S III? No worry, XDA Developer, Chainfire has another way for you to root Samsung Galaxy S3 ~ CF-Auto-Root. CF-Auto-Root supports Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300, GT-I9300T, GT-I9305, GT-I9305T, GT-I9305N, SHV-E210K, SHV-E210L, SHV-E210S and SHW-M440S models. Unlike CF-Root, CF-Auto-Root provides root access with SuperSU binary and SuperSU application only. So no custom ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery and CWM Manager application are installed. Good for those who need root access only…
XDA Developer, Chainfire is famous with his CF-Root Kernel for Samsung Galaxy S II and Samsung Galaxy Note. And he develops CF-Root for Samsung Galaxy S III as well. But CF-Root for Samsung Galaxy S3 is not a custom kernel anymore. Chainfire makes it simple by adding SuperSU, ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery and CWM Manager Application only to CF-Root. This makes the whole CF-Root installation easier because you can install CF-Root on your Samsung Galaxy S3 no matter what kernel is being used. No more CF-Root for each kernel version. However, this makes some goodies like insecure adbd (ro.secure=0), custom boot scripts and custom boot animations are not supported. Not a big deal as I just want to have CWM and root access.
Samsung Galaxy S III is equipped with ARM Mali-400 MP GPU (overclocked version of Samsung Galaxy S II). So Samsung Galaxy S3 can play Tegra, Snapdragon and PowerVR games with Chainfire3D’s help just like Samsung Galaxy S2. However, Chainfire3D was not updated for quite sometimes. So it does not support the latest NVIDIA Tegra 3 games. Or maybe it does? Anyway, if you have old Tegra 2, Snapdragon and PowerVR games and want to play them on Samsung Galaxy S3. Feel free to install Chainfire3D on Samsung Galaxy S3. Note – root access is required.
Help, I got ‘Couldn’t install on USB storage or SD card’ when trying to install applications or games in Google Play Store. Well, I got this issue after I root Android 4.0 ICS Samsung Galaxy S II with CF-Root. Seem like CF-Root Kernel has SD card mounting issue on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Samsung Galaxy S2. So how to fix Couldn’t install on USB storage or SD card issue?
How to root Samsung Galaxy S II? That’s the question I asked when I got Samsung Galaxy S2 last year. I just upgraded to latest official Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich XXLPQ Firmware for Samsung Galaxy S2. How to root Android 4.0 ICS Samsung Galaxy S2? It is same as Gingerbread? Yup, the procedure is the same. I use CF-Root kernel to root it too. For XXLPQ Firmware, you need to use XX_XEO_LPQ CF-Root kernel.
