Default Newbie rooter from Canada Bell 527

Just bought a Samsung Mega and would like to root.

I did searches and came up against road blocks.

I've installed KingoRoot on my PC and it won't connect. I assume because I cannot get into debugger mode. I believe the option to uncheck the box is greyed out.

I then found this.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2434204&page=3

But I'm stumped at

"4.Select the AP button and browse to where you placed recovery.tar.md5"

What is recovery.tar.md5. I don't want to recover, restore reimage, load a new OS, just root. I have no idea the terms and phrases with all this stuff.

Can you help me out?.

I also installed KIES but don't know what to do with it. I know I used Kies to root my Note 2.


Thanks Guys.

I think I'm in developer mode now. I clicked on the build option 7 times and it said it was in developer mode but Kingoroot still won't connect.

Can anyone point me to where I find the recovery.tar.md5 file in order to root my Canadian i527 Mega?

As per these instructions

1.Go to Download Mode By Pressing (Volume Down +Home +Power) And Connect Your Phone To PC.
2.Launch Odin v3.09.
3.Make Sure That In Odin the Auto Reboot And F.Reset Time Checkboxes Are Selected, Uncheck The Re-Partition And Other Option.
4.Select the AP button and browse to where you placed recovery.tar.md5
5.Hit Start and Wait.
6.Your phone should reboot. Afterwards, move on to the rooting phase.

You can get CWM or TWRP recovery from this link here https://www.mediafire.com/folder/8uuvfvauztdna/MEGA_6.3 and go into recoveries folder and choose the tar file to flash with odin.

Can you give a step by step?

This is what I did

I have the drivers on my PC
Put the super file on my phone
Installed the recovery file using odin. I've tried a few differnt ones . Right now I have the 6.0.4 one on. Said it passed.
Before allowing it to boot I got into the recovery and choose to install from the phone. Installed the Super file. But it said

set_perm: some changes failed
Error in /data/media/o/root/UPDATE_SuperSU-v1.34.zip

install aborted. (Status 7)

Any idea what that means.
