Hey
Not surprisingly, you're still on your original signed sammy kernel.
Problem only comes with my insecure kernel, needed for a custom system.

AutoRoot for GT-I9506 now available for download.


NOTE: This AutoRoot is ONLY for people running the GT-I9506 - European version, running stock 4.4.2 release version XXUCNG3.
Download link found below instructions.

Before we start:
This AutoRoot image, was originally a CF-AutoRoot made by famous Chainfire for the Galaxy S5: SM-G900F - European version.
I converted the whole image to work on our S4+, all binary still belongs to Chainfire. I therefore take no credits for this work, all credits goes to Chainfire, since the idea and magic binary is still his work.

Flashing instructions:
Download the Zip file below and unpack using 7-Zip. Go to the directory where you unpacked the Zip file.
This archive contains Odin v3.07 set up for you. Start this Odin and click PDA, now select the SGS4+_AutoRoot.tar.md5 file.
After a few seconds, Odin has verified the md5 sum and is ready to flash.
Put phone in download mode...etc etc...same as we always do
Just as a precaution: Check that only Auto Reboot and F-Reset Time is marked.
Now press Start and the magic will happen.
Phone will now flash and then reboot into a special Chainfire recovery. WAIT for the magic to happen.
After this, phone will reboot as normal and you will end up at your normal system...now rooted.
Now find and start SuperSU, it will first ask you if you want to disable KNOX. Answer yes and wait.
If SuperSU has not responded in about a minute, press and hold HOME button, Clear memory; press left most icon and then select RAM, Clear memory.
Return to SuperSU and start it up again.
I have done this several times now and it works every time.
Now get yourself an app that can remove all the crap

Don't hesitate to contact me in here, if you encounter any problems or have questions.



Happy flashing and rooting.
Regards.
Root knox free? 0x0?

Yes...that's the problem. Stock kernel doesn't accept a custom system. But stock system accepts an insecure kernel, but then the WiFi won't work. You see, that's what I am fighting right now. Even tried to flash the insecure kernel with custom system, let it install and then turned off. Then flashed stock kernel....no WiFi. Right now I can't see what is doing it, but I suspect something in the system...but it could also be my kernel. But kernel is now perfect, clean, fast and striped for unnecessary code.
But...this drives me crazy...
It's funny, because the chip controlling WiFi also controls Bluetooth and it works perfectly.
Well back to the keyboard.
Stay tuned.
Regards.

Maybe something with the driver? Or an built in app blocks it.

While waiting for the insecure kernel, manage to remove about 920MB of bloatware from the stock Rom.
