Before proceeding to below steps you need to make sure which version of Samsung Galaxy S3 because this tutorial will work on devices GT-I9300 and GT-I9300T. If by any chance your device model has a suffix I don’t recommend you to use this tutorial because you may brick your device.

Step 4: Now if your phone is connected with a computer over USB, disconnect it.

Step 5: Now start Odin 3 which yu previously downloaded in Step 1

Step 6: When Odin opens click on PDA button, then locate and select CF-Root-SGS3 which you previously downloaded and extracted in Step 2

    There could be many reasons for that, and I can’t give you the correct answer since I can’t see the Odin log. One of the most often reason this happen is because of corrupted download. Re-download all files I suggested in above tutorial and try again.
