Well when i originally rooted, I did so without flashing a custom rom or anything. All I did was odin the root and let it do its work. I just want to have my phone rooted and still running the stock rom. The update i just did added the brightness control in the notification bar. This was an AT&T minor update. Once the update finished, i used a root checker and it said that my device was no longer rooted. Will I be able to flash the root and only the root? I just want to make sure before follow through with the process.


When you root via the process outlined in this thread, what you are doing is flashing a stock ROM with root injected into it already. So it's just like an OTA but comes pre-rooted for you. So this process is really more than just rooting your current ROM but is instead blowing it away with another ROM. It will still be a stock ROM but will likely be an older version forcing you to perform a factory reset.

Go into your Settings -> About and take a screenshot of all of the different version information and post it here (if it shows it, be sure to remove your ph# and IMEI for privacy reasons). Once I see that, then I can tell you more what to do. It's very important to post the version information of your current ROM. If it shows "I747UCALG1" then that link I have ~2 posts back should do it for you. If it's something else, then that link might not do it for you.

Here is my info page


Okay, so you have I747UCLH9 and that rooted ROM is I747UCALG1 - different versions. I'm too ignorant about the AT&T releases to know for certain what will happen although I have some guesses but I don't want to guess with your device and data. ;-)

Before I continue, let me ask you this: Is it important that you avoid doing a factory reset? If you're fine doing a factory reset, then just do that and flash the G1 file via the directions in this thread and you'll be good! If you can't/don't want to do a factory reset, then we'll have to work harder. So let me know that so we don't waste needless time. :)

Well.. I would like to avoid the reset if at all possible because because I want to avoid loosing data for certain app and games (however childish that may sound). I have hacked a lot of games and re written data values in them and i am sure that the reset will wipe all that work i have done. I know the first time i flashed the rooted rom, it did not require a reset. I was hoping for that same option in this case. If possible, i would like to have the rooted rom with the recent update included, as it does have a few perks included with it. I know i am requesting a lot but I really do appreciate your work to help me out.

Okay, I've created a new thread for you since your problem is beyond the scope of this thread. This will hopefully get some people more informed with the AT&T versions involved in helping you as well. I'll try to keep an eye on it but hopefully somebody will have some good info for you. I proposed a couple options but need verification on which one is more appropriate for you.

everything seemed to work fine. odin showed that it passed but my phone keeps saying that "Unfortunately, the process android.acore has stopped". this keepd popping up every 2 seconds. can you please advise as to what might be wrong?
Should i try a factory reset from cwr? What should I do before I try the wipe What would the consequences be? I won't have access to computer until this evening.
Or should I try to reinstall this package again?
I tried to wipe dalvik & cache and fix permissions. No good.
I can't open dialer, messages.
To type this i can only do a word or two at a time, because this message keeps popping up.
Or can i just install a new rom since i do have root?


NVM... I got home and read through again. Saw that I should factory reset. All is good now.

Is this still a valid method, wasn't sure if it mattered if the s3 already had JB on it or not, just wanting to make sure I know everything I need to know before I try this, thanks!
