Default KK 4.4.2 NC1 rooted with towelroot apk

All. I was just able to root my NC1 KK 4.4.2 with towel root. If I am allowed to post a link with my limited posts... todays date: 6/16/14 11:52PM EST

<link removed so i can post this>
if not towelroot dot com

Please donate to this guy. Confirmed working on my S4 i337 4.4.2 || I337UCUFNC1 baseband, KOT49H.I337UCUFNC1 build number

Late now and work tomorrow. Need to now search for a stable rom

so, If I understand correctly, even with Root I would have to use Safestrap on the I337 to install another Rom? I am hoping I am wrong and with Root I can install CWM touch... Does anyone know with the NC1 build of KK on the i337?

I've tried MotoChopper, a series of different CF-AutoRoot files and neither have given any luck. Odin stops right after SuperUser.apk is pushed over and gives the "Threads failed: 1 Success: 0" message.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in Advance.




Follow the instructions on this video hope this helped ^_^

Since this is the first thing that comes up on Google when searching for Galaxy S4 AT&T 4.4.2 root, I'm going to post in here. I'm rooted! Here's how:

1. Go to www.towelroot.com and grab version 1. Install it.
2. Go into your Application Manager, flip to the right, find Lookout, disable it.
3. Run Towelroot. It won't tell you much, probably crash, then reboot.
4. When you boot back up you should have totally unrestricted root access. Check it with Root Checker.
5. Install SuperSU from the Play Store, let it update SU and disable Knox.
6. Enjoy your rooted, stock 4.4.2 TouchWiz ROM!

I verified root with Root Checker, Adfree Android, and Titanium Backup. All appear to be working.

Default Cannot root.....

I bought a refurbished i9500 S4. I was very pleased when I received it. It looked totally new. When I tried to set it up, the WiFi wouldn't work and the network connection went on and off, mostly off. I tried a number of root methods and all of them failed. I should mention that I live in Thailand. The phone is useless here. I9500ZSUEMJ6 JSS15J is in the about this phone setting.

I was in Odin and noticed the VERY small writing in the top left hand corner. It identified the phone as SGH 1337. More research showed that is is an AT&T phone. After spending probably at least 15 total hours, I gave up and have returned the phone telling them that I want a refund or a phone that is not linked with any ISP.

I use an i9300 S3 and it is a great phone running Omega V58.

I have come to the conclusion that AT&T sucks. I did read that the boot loader is locked and the SGH 1337 cannot be rooted. Hopefully the company I bought the phone from will make the exchange for a plain i9500 international model.

I understand that there is a work around called Loki or something like that. I don't WANT a work around. I want a rooted phone.

Just tried Towel root and it worked great. Finally a way to root the gs4 4.4.2 i337. If only there was a way to install a custom recovery now.
