Go to system settings and check if USB debugging is checked. If its not selected, check it and try the entire root process again.

<OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
<OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
<OSM> Please wait..
<OSM> CF-Auto-Root-m0-m0xx-gti9300.tar.md5 is valid.
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..
<OSM> Leave CS..
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 0

The phone doesn't reboot, but stays in download mode. Any ideas?
As I can see from the log, rooting did not succeed. Succeed 0/failed 0. Try flashing it again after turning USB debugging on.

Where do I turn on USB debugging? In Windows somewhere or on the phone?
Thanks!

Edit: Installed Kies again and ran it all over. Now have this:

Yes that should be it. Do you see an app called SuperSU installed in your phone? If so then you are rooted. To test if root is working fine you can try installing any app that requires root access.

Thanks for all of your help. That seems to be me up and running with the root. I've just paid the network to unlock it to make sure it is permanent and it only cost 15.

Final questions:

I'd like to reset the phone to factory condition before sending it. Will that remove the root?

When the phone boots up and shuts down, I get a Three network animation. Is there anyway to remove this?

Many thanks!

Yeah, I've seen that. Unfortunately, it doesn't work with my handset.

Factory reseting the phone from settings will not remove root from your GS3.

Yes you can remove the network animation by flashing a stock unbranded ROM on your handset using Odin. There might be other ways too to change the splash screen but you might need to search for those.

Thanks for clarifying.

I'll look into getting a stock rom downloaded to replace the current one and then reapply the root.

Okay, I'm somewhat of an android novice. Explain it to me like I'm a kid, please.
I have: 2010 MBP, Galaxy S3 Sprint model: SPH-L710 (U.S. version), OS: 4.1.1.
Is there any way I can root my phone on my mac with relative ease or do I need to wait or borrow a windoze machine?

There are specific instructions to root your version of the Galaxy S3 at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1963812

And yes, you need a Windows PC to do it since that is what most XDA Developers use.
