How To Root Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 and install CWM in it

How To Root Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 and install CWM in it

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is a successor of Samsung Galaxy Ace and Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. 
The device was released in June 2013, but is still very popular and my mate recently bought this device. I tried playing with it and I found that the performance in nice, sound is nice and other things.

It is a 4.0 inch mobile phone wtih 480 x 800 pixels and 233 PPI Pixels density. Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 has a 4 GB Internal memory along with 1 GB RAM which is quite nice for a device which was launched in mid-2013 at this price. Ace 3 doesn't have a MediaTek chipset, but a Broadcom BCM21664 (3G Model) / Qualcomm MSM8930 Snapdragon 400 (LTE Model). It has a Dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9 (3G Model) CPU / Dual-core 1.2 GHz Krait (LTE Model). My friend has LTE model and it is very quick. I haven't used a 3G model, so don't know about the speed of it. The GPU of this device is fine, but the GPU of LTE model is better than the 3G model. It has Broadcom VideoCore IV (3G Model) / Adreno 305 (LTE Model) GPU.
I think 3G model users want to root their device to increase the speed of their handset and LTE model users for just fun, I mean ROMs, Kernels etc. There might be your reasons, I am just guessing it. 
We will be rooting this handset by using Odin (to flash the ClockWorkMod Recovery) and ClockWorkMod Recovery (to flash the rooting toolkit). I hope you know these terms (CWM and Odin), if you don't know then don't worry. I will be explaining the tutorial very well and I hope you will have no problem while rooting your Samsung Galaxy Ace 3.
The tutorial is for both Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 LTE GT-s7275 and Samsung Galaxy Ace 3G GT-S7270. Other Ace 3 users don't worry. This guide will work on almost every SG Ace Models (GT-S7270, GT-S7270L, GT-S7272, GT-S7273T, GT-S7275, GT-S7275R), other users may not follow this article because it won't root your device.
