    Default Best way to root a 4.3 Sprint S4 (sph-LH20)? Trying to retrieve deleted photos...

    Hello everyone.

    I own a Spring S4 running Android 4.3. The model number is SPH-LH20

    I recently deleted some photos off of my S4 and need them back.

    I have read that the only way to do this is to root my phone and then use either a photo retrieval tool, or an app like diskdigger. I have read this is needed bc we do not have access to USB mass storage and USB Debug on the stock phone. So what is the easiest and most importantly SAFEST way to root the phone? Optimally, I would like to root it, get the photos back, and then unroot it back to stock right after.

    Can you guys please guide me on how to do this?

    Also, I was thinking, since the photos are not really deleted off my microSD card (as far as I now when I hit delete on my S4 they were only marked as deleted, not actually deleted off the card) would it be possible to simply insert my card into another phone that does have USB mass storage and do this? Or better yet just use an adaptor and put the card directly into my PC?

    Thanks a lot for the help!
