This is the Easiest way to root Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE (GT-I9505)


ATTENTION PLEASE:

- Flashing Any Custom Recovery or Odin ROM with KNOX Bootloader from posts #1 & #2
WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY!!! KNOX 0x1!!! (XXUDMH8 upwards)

- Use Chainfire's CF-AutoRoot if you want to root your existing Stock ROM.

- Custom Recovery is NOT included. If you need one, you will need to install it separately.

- DO NOT use CF-AutoRoot for Pre-Rooted ROM's as it can mess things up!!
Use it ONLY for OFFICIAL STOCK ROMs

Latest news......

Please use TowelRoot for rooting your I9505 and keeping KNOX at 0x0!!

It's an APP, no need for PC/Laptop and it's One-Click-Root app!!

Tested on I9505XXUGNF1!!

enjoy!!
Main benefits of using this method are:
- FULLY ROOTED/PATCHED
- KNOX FREE (software level)
- No need for Insecure Kernels.
- Complete, Odin flashable Packages.
- Can be used on Non-Rooted devices.
- Binary Flash Counter will NOT increase
- Only 1 file and you have a complete firmware including Root permission.

Disadvantage:
- SYSTEM/DEVICE - CUSTOM
Keep it clean please. KNOX-Talks goes else where..

KNOX discussion thread is HERE

KNOX Q&A is HERE
Flashing instructions:

1. Install KIES or USB drivers from here
2. Download and run Odin from here (v.3.04 is recomended)
3. Make sure that ONLY AutoReboot & F.Reset Time is ticked in Odin options
4. Download and extract one of Pre-Rooted ROM's
5. Load extracted file (.tar.MD5) as PDA in Odin.
6. Turn OFF your phone, Press&Hold POWER+VOLUME_DOWN buttons until phone boot into Download/Odin Mode
7. Connect phone to the computer and WAIT for the drivers to be installed. You will see blue or yellow indicator in left top corner of Odin, with phone connected to port: COM:x
8. Click START and wait until you see GREEN indicator [PASS], flashing is finished
9. Unplug USB cable and enjoy.
10. Use Wanam Xposed and tick "Fake System Status" for working OTA and Official Status
FYI: ODIN has problems with flashing latest FW's and if WiFi doesn't work you MUST flash ROM again or use matching WiFi-FIX (post #2) to make it work.

How to use Auto-Scripts (ONLY for 4.3/4.4.2 - Odex ROM's):

1. Extract and copy contents of Xposed_SLIM_DeOdex.zip*** to the internal storage, example: PC => My device/Phone/"file+folder here"
  • KNOX_0x0.sh
  • KNOX_0x0_Xposed_SLIM_DeOdex
2. Reboot - VERY Important!
3. After fully booting delete Script and folder!!!
4. Reboot - EXTREMELY Important! and ENJOY!!!

***more Auto-Scripts available, for Pre-Rooted Odex ROM's Only!

TESTED ON I9505!! Works like charm...

Modifications:
- latest su binaries
- SuperSU.apk


A little gift for everyone who like to listen to good tunes while flashing...
one my latest productions...

CWM flashable ROM's has been moved to post #2!

DO NOT COPY or SHARE MY WORK WITHOUT PERMISSION!!!
Pre-Rooted STOCK FW - Odex - KNOX 0x1
- Pre-Rooted
- Unbranded
- NO WIPE ROM's
- No other modifications
- Additional automatic scripts
KNOX_0x0_XPOSED (SuperSU + Busybox + Xposed Framework + Wanam Xposed)
KNOX_0x0_XPOSED_SLIM (as above + "Bloatware/KNOX BackUp" + "DeBloated" (~370MB will be removed/backed up)
- Use Wanam Xposed and activate "Fake system status" for OTA & OFFICIAL Device/System Status

NOTE: In order to use Wanam Xposed, you need to Install/Update Framework in Xposed Installer and activate Wanam Xposed module in Xposed Installer/Modules.


FYI: ODIN has problems with flashing latest FW's and if WiFi doesn't work you MUST:
