Hi - I've successfully used TR on my AT&T Note 3 SM-900A running 4.3. Loving it and a big thanks to all the Devs that work so hard for us ... And yes, whenever possible, I Pay for my Root apps and go Pro, etc. to help support them!

Currently having no issues except my WiFi seems to get locked up sometimes. A reboot fixes it ... I do have the Custom logo issue and I've read through all the tips and will try what I've read.

My main question: I've already got Titanium Backup freezing the Samsung Software Updates, Security Updates and Knox. With the current STAGEFRIGHT vulnerability, and any other future ones, what are the chances I can unfreeze Software Security Updates and get a fix for it without losing Root? I don't want Software Updates past 4.3 but I am hoping to get the one-off Security Only updates ... I've seem some discussions that suggest they might actually start using a more routine update process. Is there any way to side load or .apk Just the Security Updates?

TIA

You can get it from the official website, or from the XDA thread.

I ran it on my n9005 - Europe - unlocked phone.
I am on official 4.4.2 N9005OXXENB1
Kernel 3.4.0-636608 (12.02.2014)

Steps taken by me (21.06.2014):
1. Download the tr.apk
2. Turn off re-lock and app security.
3. Run the tr.apk, hit make it rain.
4. Install SU from Playstore, update it, reboot phone.
5. Check root

5.b. Success!

NOTES & ISSUES:
1. After rooting, I am unable to do a full device encryption. (if you unroot it works properly)
Workaround for issue nr. 1: Do a full unroot, reboot, make sure you have TowelRoot installed, but do not root just yet, encrypt the phone, do a reboot, launch TowelRoot, root, and you are good to go.
To decrypt your phone, you will need to unroot, then reboot, and proceed with the decryption process.
2. On ROM 4.4.2 official n9005xxuend3 with kernel 3.4.0-1168347dpi@SWDD5623 #1 MON APR 14 17:32:48 KST 2014, using TowelRoot, results in System Status: Custom
Possible fix for issue nr. 2:
  • Enter BOOT-LOADER (from power off, power on while pressing volume up + home) and do a Cache Wipe
3. It seems TowelRoot, does not work on n9000. SOURCE IS HERE

I have a tab 4 8.0 lte and I download the very apk you told me too opened it up and it says phone not supported...I have a tablet...can it not tell the difference....I don't want to go to no one else to root my tab 4...
Disappointed

use Towelroot v5
To use Towelroot v5 in your drive; your Android OS and the device have to be supported to Towelroot v5. Following Android devices are easily compatible with Towelroot v5. Also the application can use on the devices manufactured by companies such as Motorola, Samsung, LG, HTC, Lenovo, etc if they possess Android OS.
