When we talk about the advantages of this process, we may say that they are mostly limited by the knowledge of the LG G3 root. However, this procedure gives some advantages to everybody such as total control over the device and its appearance. You will have a full control over the kernel and CPU, but don´t use that possibility if you are not experienced in similar actions. Total control over the apps means that you may install, uninstall, change or adjust literally every app on your LG G3.

As you may imagine, device manufacturers and carriers are not too happy when it comes to rooting LG G3. They claimed it may affect the functioning of the device and create unexpected costs. In 2010 certain court decisions that were allowing jailbreaking and rooting were made. Thanks to them, as well as a growing community of software developers; rooting is no longer considered to be problematic. Still, in some cases, depending on the manufacturer or carrier, it may void your warranty, so check it before you start the procedure on LG G3.

Some producers, such as Motorola or Google and other models are even encouraging to get root access on LG G3. On the other hand, some carriers like AT&T or Verizon Wireless are not supporting this practice, and usually they won´t sell those devices in their packages or on contract, which means worse conditions and price for a buyer. That way they are trying to discourage buyers from choosing those models. Last year Samsung released a security service Knox. If you attempt to root LG G3 with a Knox, it will permanently void a warranty on that phone.

Root and – therefore usually accompanied – a Custom Recovery offer many advantages. First, a brief explanation of the terms: rooting means gain root privileges and thinks that one attains full write access to the system directories of Android. Recovery is an outside running Android system menu, comparable to a PC BIOS menu. The included Samsung Recovery of Samsung Galaxy S3 offers few options. With a self-flashed Custom Recovery like CWM (ClockworkMod Recovery) you can contrast flash among other unsigned program packages.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 root and CWM flash extends the capabilities of a smartphone or tablet quite considerably. Among other things, but not exclusively, you can have Backup apps along with all the settings (for example by Titanium Backup) backup of the entire system via nandroid backup flashing of custom ROMs like CyanogenMod and Custom Kernel Simple update of Custom ROMs (via ROM Manager) Cancelling Various of system apps advanced features

What are the dangers?

Here is again space for our obligatory reminder: This guide refers only to the standard model (Samsung Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 GSM).

Under certain circumstances, however, is necessary, the device to “wipe”, so the Samsung Galaxy S3 reset to factory condition. Just in case all important data stored on the device should be secured.

What else should I know before the rooting Samsung Galaxy S3?

The process is similar to the rooting of the predecessor devices and the Galaxy Note, although the running in the background processes are slightly different. It is now just exchanged no more kernel. That is, the file to flash is no longer dependent on the installed firmware. Nevertheless: Anyone who has ever rooted one of the old Galaxy devices, know what to do.

After a firmware update the root access may leave. In the case, simply repeat this process.

Try and tell me what you think.

Google has released Android 4.4.2 for Galaxy S6 devices. The new version comes a week after 4.4.1, but the build number indicates that 4.4.2 is made on the same day as 4.4.1. Google has no response data.

Android 4.4.2 is released for the Galaxy s6. Whoever does not receive the update automatically, it can be downloaded from the left, for example Android Police. Many people get the update already inside, according to messages on GoT.

Google does not say what exactly has changed. Provider Sprint has a changelog on bug fixes and improvements for security, but what it means is unclear. Makers of mobile operating systems are often unclear about changes to software updates. Anyway App Ops no longer works. The hidden menu with extensive privacy settings is available since Android 4.3, but is inaccessible in 4.4.2.

It is unclear why they released an update within a week. Please note that the unofficial change log reads the same as the last one: 4.4.1, which means that both updates were released on the same day. The most logical explanation is that Google found in Android 4.4.1 an issue and has fixed it quickly, or 4.4.1 is used to test the update. The fact that few users received the update to 4.4.1, and that both software versions are made on the same day indicates this too.

Samsung released earlier this week Android 4.4.2 for the Galaxy S4. However, several Galaxy S6 users are now reporting that the Android 4.4.2 update comes with some issues. These are the same problems that the previous

Android 4.3 update

had. After the update, the battery of the Galaxy S6 would quickly deflate and various apps would suddenly disappear.

Various benchmarks revealed that after installing Android 4.4.2 KitKat on Galaxy S6, the smartphone is slightly more powerful and runs apps much smoother. In addition, it so boots faster. For many Galaxy S6-users, however, this is not the case. Tech Mania visitors report that their devices are actually much slower after the update.

Samsung itself has not yet commented on this issue which avoided users to Root 4.3.3. It is also not known whether Samsung will release a new update to solve these problems.

Android 4.1.2 was officially released a few days ago for smartphones Galaxy S6 and the Google Nexus family. As a result, developers began to come up with custom firmwares for the Galaxy S6 and now at last, in the absence of an official update for the Galaxy S5.

Before proceeding further with all the rooting details, you should know that this update only works for Galaxy S6 Sprint models (Check Settings, About phone, model number). So if you own a different device, you should not proceed unless you just want to learn more about how to install a custom ROM (which you can only do after you root the S6 device).

Also, before proceeding with the upgrade, you must ensure that the device is ready. You will need:

– Because the upgrade process is not 100% sure, you should back up all data in order to protect personal data in case something goes wrong

– You have to enable USB debugging going to Settings, Applications, Development, USB debugging.

– Must not have any antivirus software installed

– Need at least 1 GB of free space on SD card

Meanwhile, this is what the new Root Case 4.1.2 custom firmware offers: Jelly Bean base, HSPA + support, support A2DP, OTA ​​Update, AOKP, ExTweaks, T9 marker.

Before we begin, let me remind you that this process may increase the risk of voiding the warranty of your device. Indeed, because of Knox, which is a program installed on the device, it will be impossible to hide the fact that you rooted the device. Therefore, in case of trouble, it is impossible to use the security. Also be said that this method will install the application SuperSU but retains the initial recovery. You know it!
