I'm feeling kind, but do use search in future!

Use kingo, think it's the safest atm. Root process is the same for all models.

You need to go back to 532 first before you can root:
Use this guide for that part:

You can't root 257. You have to downgrade to 532 first, root, possibly change the CDA (if you don't get the OTA update), update through OTA, and you're done.

So...

- Find a 532 ROM here.
- Flash the 532 build using Flashtool.
- Root it using this tool.
- If you don't get the OTA update, follow this guide and change your CDA.
- Install OTA Root Keeper from the Play Store.
- Once the OTA is available, download it.

Congratulations, you're on 257 again and you're rooted. This is it, and there's plenty of helpful threads here if you SEARCH, so please search before you ask. Answering questions all day long isn't our job.

EDIT: God damn it, @shaolin95, i just wasted 4 minutes on my "Rooting Guide For Dummies"
 
I DO NOT RUN A SUPPORT LINE THROUGH PERSONAL MESSAGES,
SO PLEASE DO NOT PM ME ABOUT HELP (*COUGH* UNLESS I KNOW YOU *COUGH*).

THANK YOU, AND PLEASE HAVE A COOKIE ON YOUR WAY OUT.

You sir.............are very nice to people demanding links/instructions on rooting.

I must've come from "school of hard knocks" forums previous.

Folks like that got shot down with the NOOOOOOOOB CANON!

perhaps its time to grab the old link to the YouTube video.
