    Hi, I'm new to the board.. I just spent a bunch of time trying to root my Galaxy s4. It is SGH-I337M. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I've tried a couple of methods. Could someone point me in the correct direction. I consider myself to be computer savvy and now this is just making me crazy!

    Thanks in advance.

    Update: Nevermind, I figured it out.

    Hello All,

    I have a S4 with Canadian network provider Rogers wireless. Was wondering if someone could please tell me if my bootloader was locked or unlocked? How do you tell? If locked, how can i unlock my bootloader?

    Question - would this root for the Galaxy S4 also work for the Galaxy S4 MINI? or is there a difference?

    I've followed the instructions, but when I open the superuser, It says that I must update the binary(su). But when I chose to install or recovery install, both of them failed. And it said there was an error installing superuser. And my s4 doesn't rooted. Any help ???

    Hello,
    I would really appreciate a little help:
    today I tried to root my samsung galaxy s4 GT-19505 according to your guide and recieved the following error:
    rm failed for /data/local/tmp/pwn, No such file or directory.
    the same error appeared for the su and busybox files,
    although they are present at the same directory as the run.bat.
    the application is saved on my samsung device in documents folder.
    should it be at some other location, or perhaps on the PC itself?
    Thanks a lot
    Anna

    You have to take the KNOX plunge and flash stuck via ODIN 3.7. Good luck, searching xda will help.

    If your running mk2 (4.3) to my knowledge there's no mac root method and if you updated to 4.4.2 there isn't a single root method at all for kit kat windows or mac

    There is no root method for kit kat at this time and from what I'm reading due to knox and the current libraries in 4.4.2 rooting may not be even possible they locked down the boot loader as well as the o's keep checking on xda but people have basically bricked their phones trying
