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.

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.

I realize that this post is nearly one month old, but I rooted using Towelroot(only works if you haven't updated to the latest firmware from AT&T) mentioned above, and then used the method that chappatti found [here](http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...05&postcount=1) to install the custom CWM.

Of course, if you want TWRP, you can always use FreeGee in the play store to install that easily.

1. Use roottool.kitkat to root the device (unzip>>run the "startroot.bat" file thats in the folder>>and follow the instructions.)

2. After device is rooted and reboot place SuperSU, GPRO_Recovery and FreeGee apks on the device

3. Install SuperSU, GPRO_Recovery and FreeGee apks

4. Run the now installed app GPRO_Recovery and select "Flash Kitkat Recovery for G Pro". WHEN ITS DONE DONT REBOOT .

5. Now run the already installed app FreeGee and install CWM-6.0.4.7 or TWRP, when its done u can reboot to recovery to check.

Here try this and see what happens. the 6th post down on this link has the files for the job http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...558697&page=90
