after a LONG search I found this link, hidden in about 1300 threads in the General section
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2529064
can anyone confirm this is working for the 9506 snapdragon 800 version? I got my device last night, and now for initial testing I JUST want root. I've not upgraded to 4.3.

there are only 13 threads in this section. wouldn't it be nice to get a tested and working [ROOT] sticky in this section? Root is a basic requirement for us developers (although it has been some time I've cooked something myself )

I had read that thread, but I also read that there were some issues with it (permissions, at least with the 4.3 image). So I don't want to go with that option just yet. I prefer for now the stock ROM.

I am merely trying to get root (and just root) by creating a simple root guide in this forum as a sticky.

as far as I know, and depending on who you trust, KingoApp and VROOT have not been able to produce evidence that they are NOT harvesting IMEI numbers. The last I read is that XDA admins remove all download links to KingoApp and VROOT software. In the past several warnings have been posted about both apps. Unless anyone know that these apps are ok now?

I read from xda and KingoApp facebook page and they claim all of those things have been removed from their app.
Cant say it 100% sure but I am happy that root works with their app.

in the "old days" we could use something like RootKeeper... i.e., for example root an older version of android (like 4.2.2), upgrade to a newer version (like 4.3) and subsequently lose root, and then restore the root with RootKeeper. Is that possible with this phone?

I havent test with i9506 but with Xcover2 (GT-S7710) I have updated two phones via OTA and root has remain after update.
Possible with i9506 I bet root wont remain, atleast with 4.3 update cause KNOX.

How I managed to root my I9506:

Note: If you updated to 4.3 via OTA, it is very likely that you wont be able to flash custom recovery via Odin.

1) Reflash the full 4.3 firmware that i got mine form sammobile via odin
2) Follow through the steps in this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2529064

Warning : After rooting through the steps above my phone KNOX Warranty Void : 0x1
(Not sure if this is due to the SuperSU disabling the KNOX or the actual rooting process)

Hey!

Like in other treads, like galaxy S3 I9xx was talked http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2597774, the 4.3 and later have already KNOX installed and if you install custom recovery or root your device, you probably fire the KNOX warranty to 0x1. Still there no one who was able to reset this KNOX warranty to 0x0, like TRIANGLE AEAY is resetting your flashing counter.
Then DONT install any CUSTOM RECOVERY or try to ROOT your device in 4.3 or later, if you want your warranty(ofcourse if there is already have the way, how to reset KNOX).

PEACE FOR ALL!!!
