Towelroot AT&T Galaxy S3 i747 with 4.4.2 Working.
Towelroot installed with No problems on my AT&T SGH-i747 Galaxy S3 with the new 4.4.2 update. See screenshots below.
Does not affect Knox Warranty Bit! I am staying with factory recovery mode.

Towelroot will only work for NE6 firmware on the I747M. The exploit it uses was patched in NF1/NF2.
you can try cf autoroot, or just flash recovery then flash SuperSU.

I have tried to root my phone, I747M, Canadian, 4.4.2 version, with SRSRoot, it says that process is complete and that everything is OK but root checker says that phone isn't rooted and Superuser icon can't be found anywhere. I tried Towelroot few minutes ago, it says that my phone isn't currently supported. Dunno what to do any more...

Recovery won't stay flashed after reboot. Twrp 2.6.3.0 and 2.8 if I don't let phone finish booting into ROM after flashing I can access twrp but there's no storage. Won't mount any partitions, data/system/cache or external/internal SD. If I do let it finish reboot into ROM, then shut down and boot into recovery it reverts back to stock recovery. Towel root and cf auto root both are unsuccessful as well as Kingo. Any help please?

Also tried cwm recovery. Same deal as twrp

Flash recovery again. Use its built in file manager to delete or rename these files and recovery will stay after rebooting.

/system/recovery-from-boot.p
/system/etc/indtall-recovery.sh

Try to mount partitions again. If it fails, go to advanced and copy log to sd. Then attach it here. Do the same if flashing the rom fails.
You may want to try cwm or philz recoveries too.

Ok, thanks. I'm heading home from work n I'll try what u suggested, altho I don't think I'll be able to modify and files, since nothing mounts but I will try. Also definitely won't be copy the log to SD if it won't mount, but could still probably pull it thru adb. Have tried twrp and cwm neither will mount. Will update this post after I try. Thanks

I747 NF1 and NF2 root?
Wrong title. I meant I747M not I747. Anyways, is it possible to just downgrade the NF1 or NF2 kernel to the NE6 kernel then root via towel root then put back the NF1 or NF2 kernel after its rooted?
