Can I ask a huge favor? Can you write a simple list of steps you did. That thread is chaos from people who have 10 different devices. Like a simple

1. step a
2. step b

I don't want to screw up the device I just bought yesterday lol.

Wow, Ok I thought there would be more haha. You said you were on a sm-p905, I wonder if this will go as smooth on an sm-p900. I'm on the wifi not lte version. Any guess?

Thanks for summarizing that though.

edit: seeing mixed results related to the Exynos chips from people's s4s and s5s. hmm.

Can you please tell more details about your SM-P905

AP, CP, CSC (These can be found at least on SM-P905 by opening dialer, then type *#1234#)
Kernel version (Settings - General - About device)

And for any else of you, if you try this method, report please how did it go, did you got root? did it trip KNOX flag and what firmware version you were using, thanks

anyway from what i have read so far there is no harm in trying...... In the worst case scenario it will not work....

SM-P900 On KOT49H.P900XXUANC4

Does not work, but did not trigger knox. So no harm no fowl. Shame, really got my hopes up.
