It asks for me to swipe to fix it and looks like it's all good, but SuperUser won't show up and when I run root checker it says I'm unrooted????? Anyone else having this issue? Any help would be very appreciated.
I used this method a few hours ago to root my Galaxy S4 on Jelly Bean 4.3 ..(I can't post links because I'm a new user but go to google and copy and paste this How to Root Galaxy S4 (T-Mobile) SGH-M919 on Android 4.3 Jelly then click on the link from honai-android and there is a step by step.
Use Auto Root and Odin3 v3.07 -- Then I went ahead and flashed the latest Clockwork Recovery Mod and just flashed the Gummy ROM on Android KitKat 4.4 and it is awesome! No wi-fi calling though so keep that in mind.
