Unhappy [Q] S4 Root Fail

I flashed official firmware(i was rooted) and i FDR and i left it unrooted for like a month and when i tried to root i cant..

When I try to root via CFautoroot it always fails(tried using my friends computer too)

if i try towelroot i get the message that my device is not supported....

maybe its the problem because i didnt install my country firmware

I have rooted my phone like 10 times in the past but now it wont...:cryi ng:

No problem bro
if you got a GT-i9505 you can download a custom recovery from here: https://goo.im/devs/philz_touch/CWM_...Edition/jflte/
Than download Odin3.09, select AP and choose the md5.tar file
Start your phone to download mode and connect it to your pc, hit start on odin
go to your custom recovery and go to philz settings, than click reroot system.
install SuperSu from market
My Devices: Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505) (LTE), Samsung Galaxy Tab S (SM-T805) (LTE) and Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) (Int). Love to all Googy Max kernels and to Philz Touch Recovery. <3





Please hit Thanks if I helped you!!
