Help with root/s-off
So my ultimate goal was to basically have my phone be like the Google play edition or the nexus 5. I want just pure android without bloatware or HTC.
I'm a newb to android but I tried regular rooting then realized couldn't with Verizon. I then tried the s-off method with rumrunner on linux and the problem is that it keeps telling me I need to be rooted for it to work.
Don't quite understand what's going on here. Guidance would be much appreciated.
