    Always nice to have more options: [How To] Root Galaxy S4
    This should work well.

    Hi,

    I have made several trys at down loading this tool ..
    Deadly-Venom-v3.0.2-AT&T-KitKat-I337UCUFNC1.zip | Deadly-Venom-v3.0.2-AT&T-KitKat-I337UCUFNC1.zip | ROM by Venom0642 for Galaxy S4

    That is the link I followed,,
    Download Fails..
    Last time it just stopped, the download showed "Pause" when I hit resume, it showed Failed.

    I am attempting to download it onto my Windows 7 Lap top. Also I am located in South East Asia, Bangkok.. Internet connection is via wifi at home and a strong connection.

    I am seeking the most up to date version.
    My device is an ATT Samsung SGS 1337 UCUFNC1 running 4.4.2 Security Software shows as MDF v1.0 Release 2
    Also Device Status shows Custom..

    I had attempted root and succeeded , but received an OTA update to 4.4.2 .. and after that SU does not work.. message "No Binary file must root manually"

    Some root checker programs say I have root, some say I do not..

    "Simple Root Checker says Superuser found Terminal Rooted Busybox installed.

    Root Checker Basic says I do not have Proper Root access

    Superuser says Binary not found.

    I appreciate any help, I want to get this Rooted before ATT sends out another OTA update..and perhaps closesd any known exploits..

    Thanks

    Are you rooted and have a custom recovery?

    THAT is exactly one of the questions I am asking. AM I rooted.

    I had rooted my phone in Feb.
    After an OTA upgrade in firmware courtesy of AT T I must have lost root access. As SU lost binary and Some root checker apps report no root. Others report root.

    MY post is First a request for Working link to deadly venom. For Att and second a request for information, ideas on the confusion over conflicting results to root check.

    also apps that require root access Fail.
    Thanks

    First I would say you can download a root check app from Play. Many are free, and pretty painless. I would guess you probably lost root access when you updated. You should be able to reroot the device using one of the links provided.

    Once you have a custom recovery installed (usually part of gaining root access) you can then use that to flash your custom ROM. As for a proper download, I can try to see if I can find other places for you.

    AT&T right? It should be. I found it in the ATT forum.

    I used this tool: Towelroot APK By Geohot Can Root The Verizon And AT&T Galaxy S5, Note 3, And S4 Active, And (Maybe) Almost Any Other Current Device

    Now for the life of me I don't know how to flash a ROM. I did this with no issues with my OLD Droid X so....Any help us appreciated

    Thanks

    I am rooted via towelroot, but can't get a custom recovery to actually boot. ROM Manager says it is installed but when attempting to restart I see an unlocked pad lock instead of the normal samsung gs4 (ATT) screen but don't have ROM Manager options. I only have update via zip and clearing everything rather than the normal install from zip and rom back up options. I would like to run a custom rom.

    I had the same exact problem and was running the same thing. afterwards EVERY great root idea failed until I found TOWELROOT.apk it rooted, deactivated Knox, and I was able to finally reinstall busybox and continue the process. First things first... Full rooted backup...LOL

    Okay so I used towelroot as well. It says I am rooted. The xda forum is telling me I need to create Loki. When I asked how to do so, I was told that if I didnt know what that was to not bother rooting. So can anyone tell me what that is and if it's really necessary to flash a rom?

    Thanks
