System software not authorized by AT&T has been found on your phone. Please turn off your phone and go to the nearest AT&T store for help.".

Thing is, I flashed it using only genuine Samsung firmware (and did it right by the way) and the kicker is I BOUGHT THIS FOR FULL PRICE OFF CONTRACT!

Should've got the SGH-I527M.. Now I have to JTAG it and even that might not work
Did you get it fixed????

If we do then it is not good news. Since I'm not sure what the above means, I will be an optimist!

In case we get somewhere with this towelroot app, The other thing you have to do before or after running a successful root is go to chainfire's site and download the update supersu zip file. I did it on my laptop.

http://download.chainfire.eu/448/Sup...SU-v1.99r5.zip supersu has been updated in the playstore as of 6/18/14. This step is no longer necessary.


Since we can't flash zip files yet (no custom recovery due to locked bootloader), you need to unzip the file, go into the common folder and copy the superuser apk file. I know the date says 2008, but that is the latest apk.- v.1.99. The one in the play store is too old. ( It won't update the binary.) I removed my old supersu, and downloaded the apk thru my dropbox, installed it. (Just read we need to uninstall supersu Pro too) Update binary and then reinstall pro.

Once we have root with towelroot (I'm thinking positive here) you will need to open the supersu- v. 1.99 and update the binary. Then you should be good to go.

************************************************** *******

I borrowed the following from Franzie3- thank you. Taken from the following thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2784860


once you have completed the instructions and used Towelroot. Let's get us some SuperSu on it!!
6/16/14 For now please download the following zip located from chainfires site listed above- v.1.99 and extract the SuperSU.apk from the "Common" Folder in the ZIP and sideload the app. Credit to @Chainfire for SuperSU
- Once SuperSU is installed Open it.
- It will state that Samsung KNOX is detected and ask to disable it. The choice is yours, but I let it disable.
- Next you will need to update your binary. The choice are "Normal" or "TWRP/CWM". You MUST choose normal as TWRP and CWM require unlocked bootloaders which we do not have as of now.( this applies to us att mega owners too)
- Download Root Checker form the Play Store HERE
- Once you have verified you have root CONGRATS!!

1st question can anyone verify that the Wifi while using Bluetooth bug has been fixed in Kit Kat 4.4 or higher for our devices.
2nd are you saying that you have verified this method??? I may update to Kit Kat just to get my LG H371 working correctly. But must have a rooted device.

Do not update to kitkat on your i527 mega. There is no root method yet...Please reread the thread. TR was a Hope that we could get root, but it just doesn't work. Also read the off topic thread on the i527 mega. More info on this subject there.
