Default new to Rooting

Im new to this whole rooting deal. Ive been looking on you tube videos on how but the links they put never work. Is there a step by step instructions on how to root my s4.

It depends on what firmware you're on. Stay away from you tube.

First off I would review xda rules/polices as a new member

Second, wouldn't start 2 threads 6 minutes apart in 2 different sections


That said, you need to determine your build first, under phone settings.

The build will determine how to root and what you can and can't do.

Next, read, read, read on xda, not you tube--

There are beginner threads here

Post your phone version and carrier when asking q's. There are several versions on this forum and that also impacts what you can do

Good Luck--

Lastly make backups every step along the way, including your EFS and put them on pc also
