*** DISCLAIMER: I did not make this. I am simply making this thread as there is no easily found thread that denotes the working root method for the Canadian variant of the Galaxy Mega. ***
*** To my knowledge this does NOT work on the U.S. SGH-i527 variant due to a locked bootloader ***

Hmm..i have the same phone and mine works well, well mine is sasktel, but i would unroot your phone with kingo root which i have uploaded here and install the program on your pc and once program is installed open it and then connect your device and then just follow the on screen info as it will ask you to allow the pc to access and stuff like that on your phone and select ok and once you get to the screen were it tells you if you are rooted there will be two selections "Remove Root" and "Root Again" and select remove root as you can always re-root it again with this program..and run the kingo root as an administrator.
And see if you can get to the download mode after taking out the root.
