... loitable Exynos4 device.
For more information on the exploit itself, see this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2048511 . Long story short, lots of Exynos4 based devices are wide open to any attacker. The exploit can be run from any APK without any special permissions. If you're not scared yet, you should be.
Damn my i9300 and Note 2 are on there but I am on AT&T variant. I assume the fix will still work though. Am I wrong? I just noticed I own 75% of your apps, a good portion of Supercurio's and I have AndreiLux's kernels on 2 of my devices. All star team page 1. I will give install a shot now on my S3 and Note 2 eight now. Big thanks Chainfire.
The AT&T i9300 isn't based on Exynos 4 i think?
Thats, what I get for pulling all nighter. I have unlocked international S3 i9300 then on AT&T I have the Note 2 and Optimus G
The international one should be affected, googling the AT&T Note 2 seems to suggest it's an Exynos 4 as well, which would then also be affected.
Lol..I have had SuperSU99 on my phone for a few days and the paid version.. lol
I believe the Note II uses the newer Exynos 5 quad core cpu
+Roger Martinez I believe you should buy iPhone.
Unbelievable, Samsung. Wonder what +Daniel Hillenbrand and others have to say about this.
Ok, I was wrong. It has an Exynos 4412 CPU, which is 4 series. Guess I'll research it next time. I don't need an iPhone I'm happy with my GS3, thx.
I think all android phones need this app
Guess it's a good thing the NA models of the S3 have a Qualcomm chip...
I can only guess that the SGS III SCH-I535 is also vulnerable since its basically the same as the other SGS III's mentioned in the XDA post?
One time Verizon does good by changing some things on there devices talking about there version of gs3 running dual core qualcomm snapdragon pricessor.
Is the Epic 4g touch also voulnerable to this exploit or no. Cuz i know it has an Exynos Cpu too? But its an older phone thou.
+shane chacon That was actually Samsung's decision so the US Galaxy S3's would get LTE. At the time there wasn't a LTE compatible Exynos ready for mass production (the special Korean version was sold in small amounts.)
Patched my SgS3 (GT-I9300) last night with your exynos exploit. No probs with camera either. Nice bonus getting root this way ;-)
How do I unpatch it so I can root my phone ?
+Ka'Sheen Hightower The whole point of patching it is making sure your phone isn't vulnerable anymore. As such, obviously, you cannot use that vulnerability to gain root. You'll have to root your phone through normal methods. What that normal method is depends on your phone model, Google it.
