Have a i545

I had a driod X root with custom rom so I am not a total noob... just been holding off on the S4 to understand it better. I really just need to be able to create a hot spot


What are my root options Saferoot?

How can I unlock boot loader

What is...... Knox Warranty Void flag

Saferoot is your best bet.

Can't unlock bootloader

Knox Warranty Void flag is just that. It's a flag to let people know you did something Samsung did not want you to do (ie install a custom BL) and now your warranty is void.

To back up, install Safestrap recovery. Then you can take a nandroid of your stock phone that you can restore later.

I tether my phone on a stock ROM using the built in hotspot. WiFi tethering is free if you're not on an unlimited plan.
If you are on an unlimited data plan, then you just have to pay for it.
There are people who have figured out how to defraud VZ and tether on an unlimited plan, however.
