What is Universal Root de la Vega?
It is simply a script to create Root de la Vega for any device that has the necessary hooks. In its current state, it should be considered beta, the code is still very messy and may not work in some cases.
What devices are supported?
Just about every Samsung device with KNOX! (Excluding Exynos based devices)
Samsung has caught on
and has started patching bootloaders, you can still root, but you will trip KNOX.
If you are running MJ4, MJ7, MK1, MK2 or higher you can still root, but you will trip KNOX!
How to find your AP / CSC (PDA) versions:
Basic knowledge of how to use terminal and odin or heimdall (this is not a general support thread)

How to find your stock firmware:
Go to SamMobile
and enter your device CSC in the in the black bar search field. (Free account required to download)
