Default Sph-l720 Not Rooting With Towel Root

My warranty just ended and i wanted to try a one click root method. I saw a lot of samsung users on youtube using towelroot so I decided to try that. I downloaded the app, the first time i clicked make it rain, it read, phone is not currently supported. In the video discription it gave a different modstring for sprint model s4's. So i tried that, and i got the same message. None of the modstrings seem to work and ive tried many other root apps but i prefer towelroot. I dont have a computer on hand to use odin and i really want to use a one click method. How far away will the next update be to fix towel root and if not any other one click apps??

If you took the NG2 update, Towelroot won't work. That loophole is currently closed.

And don't ask when something will be updated. The devs here do this for free and have personal lives to worry about. They'll get updates out when they get updates out.

I am chill. You're new and probably didn't realize that asking for update etas is a big no no.

Because he doesn't have a computer to Odin in a custom recovery at the moment.
