Galaxy Mega with OTA Android 4.4.2.
I only want to root and keep this stock ROM. I don't even care if it's unlocked unless it has to be. I have read through several guides that all seem to be written over a year ago. Is there a new tutorial for me? I have installed Samsung Kries 3 and Odin. I can usually make a connection though it often gives me error messages that my device is not supported. When I disconnect and reconnect, the error goes away. I can see and use Odin and Kreis 3.

If you have i527, which you have not specified, you are out of luck. It is a no go.

Sounds like Cpt. Emo spent an hour or 12 on this project already.
As for me, I am using a Sprint variant. SPH-600. Cpt. may be right concerning this machine too. If so I will content myself with learning the KitKat OTA upgrade (a welcome surprise) it's pretty awesome in its stock version.

You have the Sprint variation, you may be ok. Dont take my word as gospel, but there are definitly signs of life. Sprint is not my carrier. This thread specifically may not have all the answers, but if you read this and post here, you may find the yellow brick road. Good luck. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2789034

Not that the Mega is a bad phone, just under nourished.
