how do how do I root and unlock the bootloader for my Samsung Galaxy 3 S model number SCH-s968c which is the Verizon version for straight talk


Some Samsungs have a bug in their "download mode" which will let you flash a custom recovery without even having to root or unlock the bootloader. With custom recovery you can then do whatever you want with the phone.

  • From my research this model does not. Every technic I have found does not work. Apparently if the model ids made after august 2014 No one has found a way to root – user92759 Feb 3 '15 at 9:29
  • Verizon models come with a locked bootloader which makes it impossible to root. – GiantTree Feb 3 '15 at 10:02
  • Is that for sure? Sometimes it's as simple as flashing a pre-rooted ROM. Unlocking the bootloader isn't necessary to root many devices. HOWEVER, if no root method exists, then you can't root the device. – RossC Feb 3 '15 at 12:07
