Hi I am coming over from the sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 to T Mobile. when I had Spring and the S3 it was rotted and running The Peoples Rom. I know I can;t run TPR with T Mobile ( already asked Kennyglass ) BUT I DO want to root my T Mobile Galaxy S4, if nothing more so I can run Ad Away and get rid of those darn ads.
And I'd like to run a firewall so I can keep certain teenagers in my neighborhood out
I need complete instructions on the rooting process too, I'm 51 years old and not exactly the best at remembering stuff anymore

Use Chainfire's auto root. Here's a link:
