    You wont brick your phone unless you fuck with system files, out of all my experiences with rooting you should be fine. If you want to add a custom rom MAKE SURE ITS COMPATIBLE because that's a guaranteed way to brick your phone I did it on accident once.

    The question is not should you root it, but rather why haven't you already?

    Sure the root is the step that makes you the real owner of your phone..
    if you need any help to root your device dont hesitate to contact me, i will be glad of help you..
    regarding your s3 you can try to unbrick it with a Jig Dongle you can buy it for a few dollars on amazon/ebay.
    "If I helped you, then it'd be highly appreciated if you could rep comment me and/or press on the thanks button. "






    "thanks to oc for sig"

    Yes, because it gives you a lot of benefits. Be sure that the program you will use is compatible with your phone.
    Good Luck!

    @ @Nyaro what are you trying to accomplish through the root?

    Always be aware of impostors, ask for Skype verification by having the person send you a message on MPGH.
    Please do not waste my time & your time with useless messages. These will be ignored and actions will be taken.

    Make sure to read the MPGH Rules & each Section STICKY for extra information and rules that apply for that
    specific section.
    *Please confirm my Identity on Skype before any transaction* If you have any questions, please feel
    free to contact me using the links Below.Please make sure to SEARCH your question using the following link first
