Most ROM updater scripts have an assert command at the beginning to check the model, actually, so it probably wouldn't hurt.Install a recovery, then install a cyanogenmod ROM, Google is your friend, go to xda-developers.com and go to the s3 section, but install for your correct version, there are two types of s3, the i9305 and i9300.
Edit: what I said except s3 mini instead of s3, sorry.
kind of.... Essentially, you install a custom recovery, wipe the /system, /data and cache partitions, and install a new, modified version of Android (since Android is open-source, it's easy to build for various devices),Alright will check it out then, already happy enough that it´s possilble :3
Edit: thats´s neat, thanks
Edit2: As I have no clue about Phonehacking, are these mods like CFW´s?
You must enter recovery mode. Shutdown the phone and boot it while holding VOL UP, HOME and POWER.So installing clockwork recovery thingy seems to not work.
-plugged in phone
-after detecting I chooses the .tar.md5 in the PDA window
-klick on start
-phone reboots and nothing happened
Hum, try a different ROM. Check this section:So another problem
I wiped the 2 caches, and installed golden nova cm11.
Now it stuck on a blinking screen whivh says "android" for over 30 minutes. Did I fuck up something?
Edit: tried pulling out the battery and reboot, but stuck again on the same screen. I´m able to boot into cw recovery though if that helps
Not on the s3 Mini iirc.You also have to deal with that "Knox" bullshit with samsung galaxys
my galaxy s3 (regular) had it (it's installed on s3 etc with 4.2.2.) Once Knox is triggered, you can no longer downgrade firmware. So uh yeah.Not on the s3 Mini iirc.
Knox started being used with the S4 line iirc.
Also, who the fuck cares about Knox? x.x
It doesn't do anything either way, other than voiding the warranty but at least in Europe, doing this doesn't void the warranty cuz laws anyway.....
uh, it was introduced with the s3 then.my galaxy s3 (regular) had it (it's installed on s3 etc with 4.2.2.) Once Knox is triggered, you can no longer downgrade firmware. So uh yeah.
