Samsung Galaxy S III rooted before launch, developers rejoice!
| by Roydon Cerejo |
Before you kickstart your weekend, we have one more bit of news on the Galaxy S III, and this is a rather big one. Recognized developer Chainfire on XDA Forums has managed to root the Galaxy S III, weeks before launch. Apparently, the process was incredibly straightforward and a lot simpler, compared to previous Galaxy phones. The root was performed on the current or release candidate firmware of the S III, so by the time the phone actually makes it out to retail, it could change, but hopefully by not much. Chainfire also gave out a special shoutout to Samsung for not locking everything down the way most manufacturers do, “Now, everybody say thanks to Samsung! I don't always agree with them, but so far they have been the first and IMHO still are the only high-end Android OEM who aren't complete douchebags in the unlock department!” This just goes to show that the S III will be another modders dream phone, with everything being easily hackable.
A quick recap of the S III - the phone is equipped with some of the latest tech to make it out of the mobile phone sector. From a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor (1GB RAM) running on Android 4.0 i.e. Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) flaunting the latest edition of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI, to NFC support, the device is quite feature-packed. Its 2100 mAh battery should also provide users with quite a bit of usage as well.
Here’s a closer look at some of the other specs revealed:
