Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean 4.1.2 XXEMH4 root
As a continuation of the previous post, here I am including the method to root Galaxy S3 I9300 Jelly Bean 4.1.2 XXEMH4. The method is based on the Galaxy S3 CF Auto Root method which was posted before.

So far this is the fastest and simplest method of rooting Galaxy S3 I9300 Jelly Bean 4.1.2 XXEMH4. The Root is developed by XDA Elite Recognized Developer Chainfire. This post is specific for Galaxy S3 I9300. If you have other Galaxy S3 variants follow the post here

- A windows computer with Galaxy s3 driver installed ( Use Kies ).
- Odin
- Any of the Galaxy S3 model listed in the Supporting Models with more than 50% battery.
- USB Cable

- Backup all your important data.
- Kill all the Kies processes using Windows Task Manager.
- Disable Antivirus.
- This Root is Only for Galaxy S3 I9300 International version

Rooting or installing recovery may brick your phone or void warranty. I am not responsible for anything. Do at your risk.
