    There's a downgrade thread on xda. I don't have a windows laptop so I have to run parallels on my mac. This is all still French to me. So I'm talking it all very slow so I don't brick my s4.

    If your on sprint your boot loader isn't locked you can use a method that flashes an Un official kernel then re flashes the official kernel and gives you root when you add super.su binary once you flash your new recovery WARNING THIS TRIPS THE KNOX FLAG THERE'S IS NO RESET FOR THIS ONCE KNOX HAS BEEN TRIGGERED YOUR WARRANTY IS PERMANENTLY VOID FLASH AND ROOT AT YOUR OWN WRISK
    OK and are you 100% sure the band's that the sprint model (cdma carrier) is compatible with the mobile (gsm carrier) are compatible?? And don't expect anything over 3 g and half the range support unless there bands are completely compatible might just serve you well to buy a new phone

    Hello,

    New to this. I have a slightly broken AT&T galaxy S4. No more service with AT&T though. Can I use this rooting to convert the phone into a wifi only tablet? No interest in using it as a phone.

    Newbie here.

    I've got grandfathered in unlimited minutes with AT&T. Rooting wouldn't put my unlimited minutes in jeopardy would it - just void the warranty on my phone which has expired already anyway?

    Also, where is this deadly venom magic tool and the instructions for using it to unlock most recent stock OS Galaxy S4? Sorry, if link was provided earlier - so many posts I could have missed it.

    I haven't completely pulled it apart yet. The screen is slightly warped now and some of the glue (or whatever adhesive they use) that connects the screen without the outside edge of the case has come apart. I picked up a new battery and it seems to boot ok. I have been looking at repair videos and I may be able to get it back to where it is mostly original. Not sure how well it will hold together with the warp. It's not much but doesn't look like it will take much to continue pulling away. I have it in airplane mode for now. Is there much else that can be done with it for home use? If nothing else it would make a nifty remote for my XBMC box.

    I'm having a hard time rooting my phone.

    Specs are:

    SV: L720VPUFNAE
    Kernal: 3.4.0-481102
    SE for Andriod Status: Enforcing SEPF_SPH-L720_4.4.2_004

    Carrier: Sprint
    Phone: Galaxy S4
    AP/CP: L720VPUFNAE
    CSC: L720SPTFNAE

    I go through the root process and all seems to run fine, however Root Checker cannot verify root.
    I'm not getting any error code so I have no idea what the real issue is.
