    Tom in this post you mentioned that it's possible to good back samsung stock. I've just tried to root my phone with cryanogenmod and it keeps crashing my phone. Can you tell me how to get the samsung stock mod back or another more stable mod to use? Thank you

    If tou have cyanogen mod your already rooted to get root access you need to activate it in security if your on verizon or at&t with 4.3 (mk2) or the new kit kat 4.4.2 there is no root method for at&t and verizon so cyanogen mod isnt possible as the boot loader is locked so that is why you need to tell us your model number your baseband so we can give the write advice WARNING FAILIAR TO FLASH THE WRITE ROOT PROCESS FOR YOUR FIRMWARE OR ROM IS ALMOST A GUARANTEED BRICK SO WE NEED THIS INFORMATION IF NOT MOST LIKELY YOU WILL BRICK IT AND WE WILL SAY 6OU WERE WARNED AND CALL YOU DUMB FOR NOT UNDERSTANDING ITS FIRMWARE SPECIFIC

    must have unlocked boot loaders!!

    I am having an issue with my rooting. After it says "This may take a few minutes" it says "Failue / Cleaning up / Exploit complete. Press any key to reboot and exit." So I do so, the phone reboots. After successful reboot, I check for the Superuser. It opens with a message to update binary with two methods to update: "Recovery Install" or " Install". Both of them gives me an error message to contact developer. I update the software via Google Play. I check the app again and now it only has one method for updating, which is "Recovery Install". Same error if I choose it. I download SU Root checker and it says my phone is not rooted! Help please.
    Phone Info:
    Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 (SCH-I545)
    Build # JSS15J.I545VRUEMK2
    Baseband version I545VRUEMK2
    Hardware version I545.07
    Android version 4.3
    Purchased a month ago.

    Computer info:
    Win 7 64-bit
    Installed with correct and recent USB drivers.

    Thanks!

    The only method I know of with kit kat trips the knox void flag there is no known knox flag aways I would see about it on xda see if you can get further information that's specific to your device

    Most likely it will be simular to at&t's method when we downgrade back to mk2 root use ss 3.71 then odin flash mdl boot loader flash the rom then uninstall SS 3.71 and install ss 3.72 which can mount kit kat Idk cdma is more restrictive than gsm so it might not come to pass

    Has there been an update for rooting the latest NC5 version? I'm trying to follow on xda but I'm just lost. The s4 isn't bad when not rooted but I'm just not used to running an android device without root. The steps on xda seem French to me. I guess I need it dumbed down.

    Hi all Android fans!

    We have placed an 0.9 BETA for our Facebook client (Babbler) in Android Market yesterday.

    We're preparing the app for a full, official launch in the next copule of days. It would be a great asset for us, if any of You would like to give it a try, and help us with making it even better that it is now.

    And feel free to send us any comments, requests for changes or additions, on Babbler's official Facebook App profile.


    Thanks,
    Babbler Team
    I would assume so. I have done nothing at all to the device.
