Default [Q] Downgrade after OTA Update Possible?

Hey Guys, I was out of the country for the past month. I got back yesterday only to find my phone got the OTA update and i didn't want that as i was planning to root it. My question is can i still root it or is there a way to roll back my phone? Any help is appreciated guys. Much thanks!

I believe you can still use kingoroot. Be warned this method delivers some info about your phone to their servers. But to the best of my knowledge this is currently our only option.

Thanks. I would rather not use this option if I can help it. Any other options?

Do not use the Root De la Vega method on your MJ5 or you will create an unrecoverable brick. kraz
