Just bought a Samsung Mega and would like to root.

I did searches and came up against road blocks.

I've installed KingoRoot on my PC and it won't connect. I assume because I cannot get into debugger mode. I believe the option to uncheck the box is greyed out.

I then found this.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2434204&page=3

But I'm stumped at

"4.Select the AP button and browse to where you placed recovery.tar.md5"

What is recovery.tar.md5. I don't want to recover, restore reimage, load a new OS, just root. I have no idea the terms and phrases with all this stuff.

Can you help me out?.

I also installed KIES but don't know what to do with it. I know I used Kies to root my Note 2.


Thanks Guys.
