Default Root De La Vega - I545VRUDMI1

Root de la Vega
By @designgears & @Chainfire
Ported To the Verizon S4 By:@BeansTown106

First off, Huge Thanks to @designgears for the root method & @Chainfire for his SuperSU App
Also Big Thanks To @open1your1eyes0 for beta testing it for me on the Verizon S4 MI1 Update


Warning: I cannot be held responsible for anything you do to your phone, rooting is optional! But the KNOX counter added in the MI1 Bootloader will not be affected and will still show 0x0.

How To Enter Download Mode
Method 1: in command prompt or terminal enter: adb reboot download
Method 2: Pull the battery out, unplug the usb cable, reinsert the battery. Hold Volume Down + Home + Power. Follow the instructions on the screen.

Rooting Instructions
Remove the external sdcard (if you have one)
Boot into bootloader mode (see methods above)
Flash VRUDMI1_Root_de_la_vega_jfltevzw.tar.md5 with Odin v3.07 (put in PDA slot, don't change any other settings, click start)
Let your device fully boot after flashing has completed
Copy the contents of Rootfiles.zip to the root of the internal storage
  • /My Computer/SCH-I545/Phone/
    • root_de_la_vega.sh
    • root_files (folder)
Reboot (very important!)
After fully booting delete the files from the internal storage that were added previously
  • /My Computer/[Phone Name]/Phone/
    • root_de_la_vega.sh
    • root_files (folder)
Reboot (extremely important!)
Reinsert the external sdcard (if you have one)

That's all! Enjoy Root!

Excellent method with huge thanks to all of the above (especially designgears for discovering this truly ingenious ODIN trick).

Confirmed tested and working 100% on a full VRUDMI1 build (new bootloaders/radios and all).

Well you would have to take the update first I assume. .

Wonder if cwm is a possibility with this update since root came over night. . Lol great job guys..
