I have just ordered an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S4 Active SGH-I537 that I am going to have activated with MetroPCS. From the model number, this apparently was an AT&T phone. I have found rooting instructions that I don't completely understand yet. My question is, if this is flashed to MetroPCS, would I still use the instructions for an AT&T phone? If so, are there any accurate instructions that you can tell me about? A video would be perfect. Also, would I want to turn off automatic software updates? Sorry if these are stupid questions, but I am trying to learn.

The only thing you have to do is go to towelroot.com. The instructions you found are outdated.

So all I have to do it go to that site on the phone, download it, and run it, and that's it?

Yes it's an app, you just have to run the app, follow the instructions, afterwords install SuperSU from the play store. It couldn't be any easier.
