Default Root and Unlock Help

N00b here.. I have a GS4 with:

Android version: 4.3
Baseband ver: M919UVUEMK2

What is the proper way [Guide] to root or unlock [or both] this version?

Seems as if this version is tricky to unlock and root.. [ie KNOX etc.]


tnx in adv

Cf autoroot still works on mk2, but you're going to trip Knox: http://www.droidviews.com/how-to-roo...emk2-firmware/

So there is no way to root without tripping Knox?

What about unlocking is there a way to do this without root?

Sadly there is no way to root 4.3 or 4.4 without tripping Knox.

It's not supposed to be so bad to trip Knox.

Just says seandroid kernel not enforcing at boot.

People say cf region unlock also unlocks their phone.

Here is the first unlock thread I found: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2283068

That unlock thread does not work with Mk2. No service menu in Mk2.

Can cf region be used without root?
Where is the thread with this

Lol.. It clearly says in BOLD red that it does not work with MK2 or 4.3.

Thanks for trying man. But ive been through most of those forums already.

Hence why im asking if there is proper way...

The only one that seems to work is the safestrap one where id have to root first then install the MF3 modem then use RegionLockAway..

Can you call T-Mobile for the unlock code?
