[Q] Can't Root? What are my options?
I have an i747M, from Fido (rogers) running the stock 4.3 firmware. yesterday i tried to root it using odin to install CWM, and then CWM to install supersu.
after successfully installing supersu, i restarted the phone, and got knox blocking the app. i updated it from Play, but then i couldn't open it, and it said it can't install the binary. when my phone asked to update the security certificates, i (stupidly) agreed.
i downloaded the .zip for supersu 1.89, and tried installing that, with the same result, but this time i also can't uninstall supersu.
i've bumped my binary counter, but i'm back to basically stock now.
my goal is to install aokp. is there a way to do it without gaining root first?
if i install CWM through odin, can i flash the aokp rom from CWM?
will the phone reset the recovery?
is this risky?
