Start your device by pressing volume+ and power and hold it until the screen gets black. Release both buttons and press volume-
It works for me every time.

DONATE TO ME
I too received the same message when I tried to root. Something had to do with att locking boot.img. Use a program called rootmaster to root my phone.
