Galaxy-S3The Samsung Galaxy S3 has just been rooted, which is quite the buzz around considering this is the most anticipated and sought after Android-powered smartphone for 2012 – at least until now, that is. Before we continue, if you want to know more about what rooting is all about, you can always read our feature article here to get a better idea. Now, those who will be on the receiving end of the Galaxy S3 at the end of this month will be able to root their device upon powering it if they want to meddle with the digital innards of the Galaxy S3.

Not only that, the official stock firmware has just leaked as well, where the version number I9300XXALE8 applies here, which means it is meant for the unlocked international version of the Galaxy S3. It will carry Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich alongside Samsung’s very own new TouchWiz Nature UX user interface right on top. Christmas has come early for Samsung Galaxy S3 owners, don’t you think so?
