Tutorial [Guide] (Root ) the Official 4.4.2 K.K Rom Mega I9200

Hi Guys,

yesterday i updated my Mega I9200 to the Official 4.4.2 K.K rom
and i found it so great to have this update ... but the only thing bothered me is how to root it !!

i searched alot for away until i found this way that I ALREADY TESTED for mine and
it worked well


1st : I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FAILURE / SABOTAGING YOUR DEVICE
as i said before it worked well for me and i just want to share it
for the fellows who have this beautiful device .


2nd : How to Root :
1- charge your device to a good limit ex. over 80% .
2- Take a backup for important stuff (apps-contacts-messages- etc. ) "Just in Case " .
3- Install philz_touch_CWM Recovery :
  • Download and start Odin 3.07
  • Download philz_touch_6.25.0-melius3gxx.tar.md5
  • Add .md5 file to PDA in Odin & Make sure that only F.Reset Time and Auto Reboot are ticked
  • Now you need to turn off your smartphone and put it into “Download Mode”
  • To do so, fist make sure that your device is completely turned off & press and hold Volume Down + Home + Power keys
  • Now using the original USB cable, connect it to PC & If phone is connected correctly, the colour or ID:COM box will change as well
  • Now just click on the start button
4- by now you have the philz Recovery on your device .
5- after that there is 2 Ways to root you device ( i did the 1st one & worked well )
1st Way :
  • boot into philz_touch Recovery by turn off your device Press and hold Volume Up + Home + Power buttons
  • open "philz settings " in recovery and choose " Re-Root the system "
  • reboot the device normally into the rom
  • after the device boot up install " superSU " app
  • and hence you have ROOTED your device
2nd Way :
  • same as 1st way but instead of open " philz settings " , you choose to install zip from SD Card
  • choose SuperSU v1.99 zip , that you already downloaded to sd card .
  • after flashing it , reboot normally and install " super SU " app
  • and hence you have root

Downloaded Files :

philz_touch_6.25.0-melius3gxx.tar.md5 http://filerio.in/av9q567dc3fr
UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.99.zip http://filerio.in/vmqa4fbzszua
Odin3_v3.07.rar http://filerio.in/rfsww8dayjuz


Hope this was helpful to all of you Guys .

P.S : the forum moderators are welcomed to move the topic to right sector if it's not right .

i don't know is this happened before or after trying this but
a general case of sd card read/write issue after kk update
use this app to fix : https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=nextapp.sdfix

but you must root your phone 1st then use this app as it needs root .

So this is possible even when the KitKat ROM has Knox on it? I'm just curious because I am dying to root my phone.

And is this compatible with the i9200 with KK? I'm not sure if this will trip the Knox counter again.
