-- You are doing this at your OWN risk. We are not responsible if you brick your device or your cat eats your phone.



INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1 - Download CF-Auto-Root Android 4.4.2 Package with SuperSU fix (check the link above) for Samsung Galaxy S4 to computer and extract the zip file.

Step 2 - Download ODIN v3.07 which is needed to root Android 4.4.2 on Galaxy S4 I9505.

Step 3 - Switch OFF the phone and boot it into Download Mode. To do so, press and hold Volume Down and Home buttons together, and then tap Power button until the construction Android robot with a triangle icon appears on screen. Hit the Power button again to confirm entry into Download Mode.

Step 4 - Launch ODIN on computer and connect your phone to it while the phone is still in Download Mode.

Step 5 - When the phone connects successfully, one of the ID: COM boxes will turn yellow with the COM port number. This process may take some time. So, leave it alone.

Step 6 - Now select the file that needs to be flashed or installed on your phone, which can be found among the extracted files in Step 1.
Click on 'PDA' and select the file 'CF-Auto-Root-jflte-jfltexx-gti9505.zip'.

Step 7 - In ODIN, enable Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time options. But, leave all other options at their default settings.

Step 8 - Click Start button in ODIN and let the installation process begin. It should take just a few minutes to complete.

Step 9 Once the root installation is done, your phone will reboot into Recovery Mode automatically and install the root package files. At this moment, the ID: COM box will also turn green.

Step 10 Finally, when the home screen boots up, just disconnect your phone from computer.

NOTE: In case the device fails to boot into Recovery Mode automatically (as given in Step 10) or cannot root your device, repeat the entire procedure again.

OPTIONAL: If the issue still persists, repeat the entire tutorial. But, ensure that the Auto Reboot option is unchecked. Then after installation (Step 10), do the following:

Step 11 - Remove battery to Power off the phone forcefully.

Step 12 - Now boot the phone into Recovery mode manually by tapping Volume Up, Home and Power buttons. This will initialize the root process on your phone.

Your Galaxy S4 is now rooted on I9505XXUFNA1 Android 4.4.2 leaked test firmware. Check for SuperSU app in your apps list to verify if root is installed correctly.

... Not sure, I should have an answer for you within the next hour or two due to my bootloader already being voided with the 4.3 one.

Hey people, is it possible to make a cwm flashable ZIP of this without changing anything?

I would like to try to dual boot it as second rom with my 4.4.2 GE rom

Can somebody send me or give a link to download the cwm flashable zip so i don't have to try to make it myself?
