Default Galaxy S4 Active Official 4.4.2 Update Root discussions



GALAXY S4 ACTIVE ROOT DISCUSSION THREAD

Hello,

In this thread we can discuss about root methods.

I contacted @rebel1699 that made the root on the AT&T S4 i337 if we can have the same thing.

He still didn't answer, When he will answer I will update.

We can also port a rooted ROM from theres by porting and modding mod keyguard.apk, android.policy.jar, framework2.jar, services.jar and secsettings.apk. Thanks for the information

@Arsaw that with E-Team ported Note 3 4.4.2 rom for the Note 2.

That's it till now.

HUGE Update: @Sunderwear Has gained root: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=51995443
Happy Rooting!

If someone could point me to the full odin tar firmware, I can see what we can do. Be aware, I was able to do this on the i337 because Samsung neglected to blacklist the 4.3 kernel from being flashed, thereby allowing us to downgrade from 4.4.2 to a 4.3 system ( all but bootloader). If that is also the case here, it should be doable, providing we have a full odin 4.4.2 tar.
