    Nope. Don't use social media, to much drama. You can always PM me, or ask questions here. You should also check out XDA if your interested in learning more. :)

    Video? Of what? This is just a general guide on rooting, it does not pertain to any particular phone. Idk what you would want the video to contain...

    dont you need to unlock bootloader to flash other roms? I was gonna root and flash my S3 with paranoid or carbon but not sure how to go about it.

    Yes, to install a source built ROM you need to unlock your bootloader, if its stock based you shouldn't have to. I can't be of much help when it comes to Samsung devices, I've never owned one. I can redirect you here though:


    Good choice in ROMs, paranoid is my favorite. The carbon team also does really good work. I suggest you look into omni ROM to. :)

    Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. I just don't want to give you the wrong information, and Samsung devices are very model/firmware version specific.

    I'm so excited that I found out about the 1+ and have found such great info on the forum! I spend waaaayyyy too much time here, when I should be doing something else. :D I am learning sooo much! Thanks to all of you that are experienced in these areas and are willing to share!!!

    Yeah ... and sadly, it's not like most people on this forum actually read the first page of the thread they are posting in either :( ...at least that's what I've observed.

    I have a problem, i waned to root my OPO and I think Idid everything I was supposed to do.
    I did the adb and fastboot stuff (both eventually recognised the device). Then i flashed the twrp recovery and tried to start into recovery but my phone is stuck on the 1+ powered by android screen... I really don't know what to do, i redid every stepp at least 10 times (always returning my phone to stock)... once I had another screen where I had glitchy rainbow colors for a sec before the phone went black .. any help is hugely appreciated

    Great help man. Thank you. Don't listen to people complaining that all this is available on the internet - what isn't?

    Thanks for this. It makes more sense of some of the jargon I've been following with confusion!
