Default Is there not a root method for the i527??

Just got this Mega and been looking all day for a root method and haven't ran across one for the AT&T Mega i527? If not then this really blows, I'll have to trade it off for a AT&T Note 2.

Thanks

No Custom recovery due to the locked bootloader Therefore no custom roms to flash- also, I think Knox has something to do with it too. I am a little confused about knox. Not too much info for us simpleminded folk. lol.

But like you, was just looking for root for titanium backup and other rooted apps. I really like the mega when I want to carry a Biga$$ phone around. lol. Otherwise I carry an Iphone 5s. What can I say!!! I go both ways!!!

1. Download Kingo Root tool for your windows PC - Kingoapp.com

2. Make sure that your pc has already installed Driver software of Galaxy Mega I527

3. Enable USB Debugging on Galaxy Mega I527,If you don’t know how to enable USB Debugging try this : Settings> More> Developer Options

4. There is nothing,you can simply follow Kingo Root tool.
