I cannot find any proper information on whether or not the GT-I9295 can be rooted or not. Googling gives me all kinds of webpages dated back in late August claiming that it can be done, but I've also come across a lot of pages saying it's not possible to root the GT-I9295 using the instructions for the AT&T version of the S4 Active.

I hoped the xda forum would give me more info, but no... unfortunately not.

Has anyone got any help to offer me on this matter? Can it be rooted? If so, anyone got a proper working howto to link to?

Thanks in advance.

Or just visit:

http://geohot.com/activeroot

and grab the apk, install it, run it, done, in like 1-2 seconds.

To be honest, there should be a sticky on confirmed (working) root procedures for the I9295. I've had a hard time finding proper information on this. Not only in this forum, but elsewhere on the net was well.

FYI I tried the geohot a couple of weeks ago, but it didn't work on my phone.

Unless there's something funky with the device, activeroot (so named for a reason) should root any Samsung Galaxy S4 Active in a second or two at most, any variant produced so far. If you got rooted without it, fantastic but activeroot should have worked without a single issue on a stock ROM... interesting.

Only thing it's not working with right now is 4.3 based stuff, and maybe if we're lucky geohot will drop an updated activeroot at some point, at least that's my hope since we have the 4.3 pre-release ROM for our AT&T I537 variant now to play with.

But then again, 4.3 does make some changes to things, and with Samsung pushing Knox on end users pretty hard, we could be approaching a time where rooting a device - let alone unlocking the bootloader - might become just another thing of the past.

Geohot's root is only for the i537, this thread was about the international version that can't use the geohot root.
