Hey there everyone. I'm not new to Android but I am new to wanting to Root my device. I switched over to the dark side for about 6 months and had to get away so I traded my iphone 5c(junk) for an S4 on Verizon network. The issue at hand is that the previous owner who happened to work for Verizon updated the damn thing religiously. It's currently running 4.4.2 on the FNC5 band. From what I'm gathering there isn't a way to currently root this build? I've seen a tutorial on downgrading back to I believe MK2 which is 4.2.2?? Correct me if I'm wrong but I think I may have to try that method if at all possible. Or should I just wait.. and suffer with an un-rooted S4.... or just trade for an HTC one... lol
Thanks everyone and don't hurt me too much... I honestly have been trying to learn the past 2-3 days and have been slightly confused.. but it seems to be making more sense with Rooting and installing ROM's.
