***Please forgive me for being such a noob, but hopefully I can be the voice of the other noobs and ask the few questions they may have and need answers too like me. And thank you in advance, I love the XDA community!

If you download the latest version of Kies, you should have it.

Can someone who knows what they're doing upload or email me (dan.j.rosenberg@gmail.com) the aboot and TZ partitions from their device? They should be mmcblk0p6 and mmcblk0p8 respectively. Please mention exactly which device you have (model and carrier).

Just want to say Thanks for the Root Method. Rooted my Sprint S4 no problem. Any word on TWRP?

Now all we need is a "tether hack" and we are set! Why AT&T won't let us set a hotspot without charging extra? I mean it still consumes data when you are tethering!

This circumvents carrier block at least on at&t s4. Works great.
No root needed.

You are kidding me!!! It works for real? (rethoric question).
Running to the store now to get my SG4 now! I was waiting for the tether hack... but if you say this app works on AT&T, I'm going now!

Thanx men!

Does your phone have to be rebooted into Developer mode or just on when you run the "run.bat"?

Thanks for the root exploit and just to let you know that the S4 firmware (at least the one on my phone i.e. I9505XXUAMDE) is available on Samfirware.
