Please do not open new threads for something trivial like this.

It can be rooted, not directly but it's rootable.

You have million of threads with that subject.

What is THIS? > http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2711982 are you so lazy to find it?

3 steps > Downgrade to .534 via Flashtool, Install DualRecovery, then follow the steps from the link starting from the line How to Update to .757.

Still your Android 4.4 not rooted, then you are very lazy!
