I've installed stock jellybean JRN84D and lost root, SU etc. Can I use this toolkit to root and install CWM?

Yes you can. Change your device to 'custom' and you can root it just fine. Or temporarily flash CWM and install a superSU fix. I tried the latter and it worked for me.

So im trying to use this and i just finished step 7 of the driver setup up. Im in boot loader and in device manager my device is listed as SAMSUNG Android ADB interface. However now on to step 8 and the phone will not reboot to bootloader while in bootloader.

List fast boot device works and I see my device.


Edit:
I unplugged my phone from USB and plugged it back in now I have a little error on the bottom right, fastboot command read error -2147483647. I did a search and it said to try a different USB port, i did same thing, I can not get my phone to reboot while in bootloader.

Do i still proceed or did i screw something up.

How is this not in the stickies?
This is truely great. I was reading all of the stickied posts and all the links in those posts (the ones that work) and was getting quite frustrated with the info there. Luckily i found this. Soooo easy to use. This is what everyone should be using. The only tricky part is setting up drivers, but it's still easier than doing it manually.

thanks a lot

(yes i know theres a thanks button)
