Hello everyone,
I had to send my phone back to Verizon due to hardware issues (I was rooted and running 4.1.2...). The new phone came with 4.3. Is it possible to root this? I saw in the main root guide that if i tried using that method, i'd brick my phone. So if you can point me to a guide for rooting 4.3, i'd like to get a good rom flashed on this thing..
thanks,
tommy

I read through a few pages… All I see there is that there's no way to root 4.3… No way to flash ROMs?

Click the link that reads "Saferoot for rooting after 4.3." Then once you've achieved root access, use Safestrap which is linked in that TW discussion thread.

You can root, but no AOSP roms. You can install a recovery called safestrap and run custom touchwiz roms.

It's all in the OP. Everything is linked there.

You were a bit more detailed my friend, I keep forgetting about the custom TW 4.3 only limitation with Safestrap.
