So, hell Yeah! Chainfire did it, Yes. He has made the rooting process for Samsung Galaxy S3 available, but how he could do it, did he go somewhere to check the smartphone, sit out there, tried out his cf-kernel on that?, naa he has done it remotely. FYI, chainfire is the most favorite developer of mine who is the guy behind all the rooting procedures and the creator of the CF-Root Kernel. He is the one who has been creating the rooting procedures for our Galaxy Note, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S and all forever, and here comes the Galaxy S3 today.
It is known that many of the devices get rooted before they are launched publicly. But, when this is done without having the device in hand, then it sounds magical to me. Just in case you’re thinking that how it was done, chainfire has told us that rooting of the Galaxy S3 mobile phone was easy so as he has done with Galaxy Note, Galaxy S2, and Galaxy S.
Unfortunately, I am not able to share the “insecure” kernel with you at the moment, because of fears it is traceable to the leaker (this is said to be the last traceable firmware revision).
This root is, as expected, trivial. It was a simple matter of repacking the stock kernel, with a modified adbd binary that thinks ro.secure=0 (even if ro.secure=1). This gives access to all adb root commands (see screenshots). Then SuperSU was installed manually.
So, Finally chainfire did it. That would be great as soon as you get the Galaxy S3 in your hands you will be able to root it.
