If, while in the Original Android Development section (where this thread was originally posted) you would have simply looked at the titles of the what... 30 threads here, you would have seen "[SGH-M919] CF-Auto-Root [ 1 2 3 ... Last ]" and been like "Because this thread has 'root' in the title, perhaps it pertains to rooting the SGH-M919."

To answer the question, yes, you can root your phone. Check that thread I so sarcastically mentioned.

You can. I have a Galaxy S4 that is running the same build and kernel version as yours. I rooted with CF-Auto-Root: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2294005. Be warned, though! Rooting via CF-Auto-Root will trip the Knox Warranty Void counter. As of now, the counter cannot be reset. If you want to keep warranty, then root using SafeRoot: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2565758. I have used both methods before and they work just fine.

CF-Auto Root works on MK2, tell me again how it's out-dated?

Like i said the THREAD is 2 months past any real help aka DEAD

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2565758
Had issues with everything crashing, things not opening, things shutting down, very very slow/laggy touch to action response

I didnt wanna use the auto-root to void any warranty So is there another way to root that wont break warranty its a tmobile used phone so its not like i can jump the phone to upgrade either?
Its not like im gonna install a custom rom so want a rooted phone with no issues
