    Default Do i need to root my new s4

    Just got it, i didnt want to get a iphone because you almost have to JB them to get the most out of it, i thought android was different, but now it seems i need to root my s4 to play any games i back up? I tried assassins creed, raven sword, avengers, the only one that almost worked was galaxy under fire the only one you dont have to put into the .obb folder, but the graphics where really glitchy. Also at first I couldn't transfer anything to the obb folder, instead i had to move it with file manager in the phone, is this why nothing works?

    What do you mean by "root my s4 to play any games I back up?" If you want to backup app data such as on games, you should try Helium.

    Also, games should just install from the Play Store and not require moving of any files.

    You are getting these games from the Play Store, right?

    Thanks for confirming. Where are you located that you can't get them from the Play Store?

    The question you're asking is typically associated with piracy, which we don't really discuss here.

    Discussion of piracy or illegally obtaining the apps outside of approved stores like Google Play, Amazon and Get Jar is not allowed in the forums. Developers work hard to provide apps and should be shown respect by obtaining them properly.

    Any further discussion or questioning pertaining to piracy/illegally obtaining apps will not be tolerated.
