Alright I have tried just about EVERYTHING from poot to framaroot from vroot to towelroot and none are successful my model is a galaxy s4 jellybean (I think) 4.2.2 GT-I9506.
If you guys don't support root because of the side effects and it voids warranty I completely understand and will go elsewhere for help. This is one tough phone to root! Will you please help?

Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9506 can be rooted using Odin.

 

Take a week to research through all the material. Ask questions if something is not clear.

 

WARNING : Apart from voiding the warranty, rooting experiments can often hard brick your device.

 

ADVICE : DO not root your Android device if its not really needed.

Hello awesomecooldude101 (great name, btw) - did you go ahead and root your S4?

 

 

And, if so, where did you find the instructions / how-to?

 

If the Mods and/or Advisors don't want you posting that here - and I completely understand if they don't - would you send me a PM with any info?

 

 

I've got an old S3 that I love but that is dying the old-slowing-down-death and have been considering making the jump to the S5 (no need for a middle-aged man like me to try to be trendy and get the S6, lol) but have seen a lot of articles about trying to root my S3 before I buy a newer version, to restore some much-needed speed and to experience the joys of what freedom rooting a device can bring. There are dangers about doing so, but it also is something I'm very interested in.

 

Because I've hung out at Bleeping Computer for too long  :lol:  every little thing that I've got on the S3 is backed up, so I'm not too worried about bricking the phone. I mean, I guess I'm scared about doing it, but not worried about not recovering stuff I need / want and love.

 

Thanks,

 

Winterland
