Looks like there might be a native root method soon. Exploit has been found!

Here's info on the exploit (CVE-2014-3153)

Now all we need is a dev to put together a root method using this exploit.

[I had nohing to do with the outcome of this method. Credit goes to each and every one of you devs (and those that fell giving his/her phones to the paper weight afterlife) who toiled over the challenge to give us what is rightfully ours to begin with]

[[May my poor dev ed s4 live vicariously through the new genre! I'd rather see it have nightmares in the depths of hell than ever turn it back on to a life of ... ...VRUF....R E T A I L life S4.]] damn sammy all to helllllllll!!!!!!!!!!
