If I want to root before flashing how can I do???
thank's for your answers....
edit : Is it you remove the files in SIPDB???? There is still GB and US but not the others
If u want to remove any files, make sure u make a copy of the original Rom 1st.
if u delete an apk, also remove the Odex file if there is one there.
Why does some have Odex and others don't= I can't answer that. That is how they made the files.
Download the SU from chainfire site and keep it on ur sdcard along with ur rom.
To root the rom, u will need to put it in a kitchen. I always flash SU after i flash the rom.
Edit.. i did not remove any files. All the files are in the rom. For the Knox files also, they are in the rom, all i did was rename them with the extention of .ori
