    It was my impression the I337 isn't rootable after AT&T's latest update.

    4.2.2 is very vague - we need to know your build number. Go to options/more/about device/build number - tell us what it is.

    It sounds like you're on AT&T with MF3. In that case, you need to read here:

    Great to know one can at least root their SGH-I337...if they're feeling brave.

    Live long and prosper.

    Read the link I posted above. Motochopper does not work with your build.

    Yes there is a way. Just did mine yesterday and it was pretty easy. Here's the link to instructions:



    You may want to follow that thread if you have any issues doing so. Long story short is you have to push the root files to your phone from your sd card via adb commands using the Terminal Emulator app (free in play store). Follow the instructions and you should be fine.

    Carrier: AT&T
    Computer: MacBook Pro (2012) 8GB RAM, 750GB HDD
    Other devices: iPad Mini
