Default [How-To][Root] Galaxy S4 Gt-9500 running KitKAT

How to root Galaxy S4 GT-9500 running Android 4.4.2 (KitKat)

Proceed at your own risk, rooting your device may void your warranty and Knox will no longer function


Requirements:
Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-9500 running Android 4.4.2
Kies disabled
Odin 3.09: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...sions-t2189539
PhilZ Touch 6 Recovery by Phil3759: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2201860 (download the .tar.md5 version for the GT-9500)
Make sure that USB debugging is enabled in developer options


Recommended:
Backup your data
Battery charged more than 50%


Rooting your device:
Connect your device to your computer (ID:COM in odin should be highlighted in blue)
Select Philz touch recovery 6 as AP in odin, make sure F.Reset Time and F.Reboot are checked (Do NOT check any other options)
Press the start button
Wait for Odin to finish
Power-off your device and boot into recovery by holding these buttons: Volume up+Home+Power
If Philz recovery doesn't appear, it may take a few tries.
Now enter philz settings and select reroot device.
When your device boots, download SuperSU (by Chainfire) in the play store.
Download Root Checker Basic and Verify your Root.
Done!

It may be the same method, but it's not the same way the guide was written

You said may lol, that's why I prevent you. Because not all users do the previous research

Default no SU binary

Hi

I followed your instructions. I"m running i9500ubufna2 Android 4.4.2 S4 I9500 from Sammobile . I flashed Philz Recovery, no problem. I went to Philz settings and clicked on Reroot device.

when i open SuperSU , it says "No SU Binary installed, and SUperSU cannot install it. This is a problem"

what do i do now?

Andre
