I can not get this device to root. I have tried everything i see or can think of. I really need some help. I have the SMn900p I have tried to root this phone all weekend. I cant do it for nothing. I will be throwing this phone out the window if i cant get it rooted. Right now im stuck at the RECOVERY IS NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING. Odin wont detect my device any more and when it was working i couldn't get Kies to detect it because my MTP option will not come up on the phone. If i try to update the device thru OTA i get a error about my connection and that i should try later or go thru Kies. I am beyond pissed that i paid so much money for the "best" phone without a contract and i cant even root it. Its really depressing smh...... Please someone help me.

Sorry I guess I should have expressed that. I'm on 4.3 stock flashed to Red Pocket Mobile. My activation is locked I guess because I still have the green check telling me I need to activate the device. When my phone is in DL Mode The info says Custom and Knox is tripped 0x1 but I'm not rooted nor do I have a Custom Recovery (If any of that information helps) Thanks for the reply

This actual thread will become a proper CF-Auto-Root thread once I'm finished tying up all the lose ends. Please comment in this thread, but read the instructions and grab the file from the thread linked above.
