    This method has been confirmed to work by users over at XDA. You will need a i9295 with an unlocked bootloader. For those who may get confused the i9295 does not get rooted using the Geohot root method from the AT&T variant i537.

    I take no credit all credit goes to the CF-Auto-root guys!

    Download the file:
    CF-Root Download

    - Download and unzip the CF-Auto-Root-....zip file (see posts below this one)
    - (USB) Disconnect your phone from your computer
    - Start Odin3-vX.X.exe
    - Click the PDA button, and select CF-Auto-Root-....tar.md5
    - Put your phone in download mode (turn off phone, then hold VolDown+Home+Power to boot - if it asks you to press a button to continue, press the listed button, or run adb reboot download command)
    - (USB) Connect the phone to your computer
    - Make sure Repartition is NOT checked
    - Click the Start button
    - Wait for Android to boot
    - Done (if it took you more than 30 seconds, you need practise!)

    If you see this post a user confirmed this to gain root access

    Do this root method at your own risk. I take NO responsibility for you bricking your device.

    TWRP is working on a version for the active. Currently if you flash a S4 recovery you will just see black.
