Hi to all.
I have this phone :
Hardware : MT6577 (UNIVERSAL5410 is Fake!)
Model : Galaxy-S4
Build number : ALPS.ICS2.MP.V1.3
Build date UTC : 20130920-121316
Android v : 4.2.2
Baseband v: MAUI.11AMD.W12.22.SP.V7.P3, 2013/04/11 12:04
Kernel v : 3.0.13 (root@lyc-desktop) (gcc version 4.4.3 (GCC) ) #2 SMP Sat Sep 21 21:55:36 CST 2013
IMEI 1 - 355236030920772
IMEI 2 - 353627052923508

the home button doesn't work. I want to install the "SoftKey Enabler" but it need a root access.

I tried this Guide : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=645253 , but stuck in step 3. when i open Universal Androot v1.6.1 got the message "failed ! No~~~Fu goo". i tried all the options didn't work.

can anyone tell me how can I root my phone?
thanks a lot.

You'll need a rooting toolkit. There are many around the net. Here's one that may be compatible with your device:
1. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2453709
Note that this one is from a Chinese programmer, so it installs a chinese superuser on your phone, but you can download the english one from the play store.
