Easy rooting Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-T999 (T-Mobile)
Have you recently owned a Samsung Galaxy S3 SGH-T999 series, and want to root your phone. No matter, I am giving you a simple step-by-step solution for the same.
But, first of all be sure to learn what rooting is? Its making your phone completely open. You can access system files, perform root modifications like uninstalling softwares which were installed by default in your machine which you can’t do it as a normal galaxy user. In other words, you can make your phone for what the developers of the phone used when it was in their hands.
But, as I know about the policies of Samsung, rooting a phone voids its warranty period, so be cautious.
