Is that correct?) but it just goes into download mode and there is no option to apply update.
Edit: NVM I figured it out... Apparently, i have to hold down power+home+vol. up O.o well any way. thank you

Also, what do I do with the pwndkitkat.zip and safestrapactive.apk I copied into my SD card? Can they be deleted (to save memory?)

I did not use either of them so I wouldn't know. But I think you can delete the apk. but just don't uninstall safestrap. I really wish I knew more, I'm sorry.

Angry broken link

Hello,

It seems that the file referenced by

is now missing (14/07/2014)

Can you provide a new link please?
Thanks

You don't need to do any of this to root the phone anymore, just use towelroot.com.
