Default Galaxy express i437 easiest root & cwm method 4.4.2

this works for i437 ONLY and no other variants that i know of. only tested on i437 follow at your own risk

1st download files needed from links below
add the custom rom and g apps to sd card and insert in phone

download and install 1 click root
enable usb debugging and unknown sources on phone
connect phone to pc with usb cable
open 1 click root and root phone it takes about 2-3 minutes max super easy to do
open superuser it should auto update go ahead and grant permissions if it ask for it
go to settings and change backlight timer from 30seconds to atleast 3 minutes it took me a few tries to figure that out ill explain why
next from Playstore install the app "root checker" to verify root
once root is verified download from playstore "ROM MANAGER"
open ROM MANAGER and choose install recovery cwm, dont touch phone during the process
the reason for changin backlight timer is because on 30secs the install of cwm does not go through when the screen shuts off the download is interupted, also if you touch the screen while downloading cwm it will interupt download aswell so make sure to adjust time and do not interupt process
once cwm is installed i should say you have latest version 6.0.4.6
reboot into recovery
wipe cache, factory reset, and wipe dalvik
install from sd the rom and g apps
wipe cache, factory reset, and wipe dalvik
reboot phone and wait 3-5 minutes and there you go super easy

so far so good i've been using this rom for 2 weeks and no major issues what so ever
PROS
runs smooth, no lag, better battery life than original i feel,
CONS
only major complaint is the camera doesnt focus as fast it'll take me a few shots of same image to get a good pic but no real bother pics still look good

if this helps be sure to thank i'm trying to move upto developer


4.4.2 kit kat rom & google apps

Cannot figure out why my pc won't detect my galaxy express. Even with proper drivers.
