Towelroot does not work with the latest firmware version. Yous have to go back to NC6 or earlier to use it on your phone.

noob here
this will be the first phone I have rooted /jailbroken, anything for years....yes years. Been away for a while now (deployment/"vacation" -the kind you can't say no to going on- etc.)

I'm reading all over the place trying to self educate myself but have no idea what I'm reading lol. So insane how fast technology changes and so on. Anyways I have a Sprint S4 and was hoping to root it to be able to use free hotspot with my unlimited plan and interested in Cyanogen. Also wondering what the next phone I should get on sprint should be. Forced to stay with them for a while...had a roommate decide to leave me hanging with months left on the contract so ...anyways giving that line to my mother and going to upgrade and either give her the s$ or buy her a cheaper smartphone (*will be her first) and Best option I'm seeing they have right now is Nexus 6 ? are they going to have any new nexus devices I tried asking them (sprint) like talking to a 4 month old ...thanks for any help/advise/suggestions.
