Ive got the E210S, and just flashed the pre-rooted JB ROM.
You should be able to root after, if you update through Kies, but you will have to wait for a bit.
I am guessing that Tegrak will update his Kernels soon and others will too. But, honestly, using Odin and flashing the pre-rooted ROM is so easy!

We should be able to use the Touch CWM that p33k has posted in his M440S thread.
I am about to do that next.

Did you use the pre rooted rom from the two part hot files link? Or is there another one I'm not seeing?

I used the one that was posted on Matcl.
p33k posted all the links and they are also posted under the phone specific firmwares that are on the OP.


Side note, anyone that has updated to JB, find that you cannot connect your phone to Odin in download mode?
Connects to computer fine when phone is running, but when in download mode, computer doesnt detect the phone being connected to the usb.

Probably silly question on my part... but have you tried other usb ports or even another computer? Works here.

yup, just strange.

Detects it no problem when the phone is running, but as soon as I unplug, reboot into download mode and the reconnect the usb, just doesn't detect it......no sounds or anything from the computer signifying that a device has been plugged in.

I recall having read somewhere about people having similar problems when not using the original Samsung usb cord and after switching back to the original cord would solve it.

I don't know if its related or technical but this happened to me with my Galaxy Nexus on 4.1.1........ I plugged in the phone in another port and another cable and let the pc detect the device and then went to download mode...it worked......but don't know was it the change in cable or usb port that solved the matter.

Well that seems to have solved that problem!
Thank you so much....not trying to see if I can get the touch CWM flashed.

Seems to be stuck on .PIT mapping right now.

Annnnd, it failed.
And keeps failing....maybe cant use the Touch CWM with JB......

Finally updated to pre rooted jb on my 210k. Wiped and cleared cache installed via odin. Running well so far except forgotten to backup pics from phone memory and redownloading all my apps.

Many thx to everyone who ppsted links. I downloaded via mediafire link single file no issues at all except after extracting the file qith a .md5. Just rename file by deleting.md5 and flash away.

No issues connecting to odin or entering download mode.

For those on kt, did you guys activate HD voice?

Banking apps in Korea can't be accessed while rooted.
All you have to do when you want to use the Banking apps (I use Hanna myself) is the disable the root.

Go into the the Super User app and into the settings, then uncheck the root.

When you are done banking, go back in and apply the root.

Note that the .md5 version of the rom image file includes a checksum to validate the file's consistency. Odin will perform this check before flashing the device, so if somehow the file was corrupted during transfer you would know.

If you rename the file back to .tar, Odin will not verify its consistency.

    Proxyme Rooting

    Proxyme Guide


    Pre Rooted stock ROMs

    (Flashing the following ROM components will trigger the custom binary counter)
    Kitkat 4.4.4

    E210KKTUKNI3 (Proxyme) (Build Date 2014-09-12)
    • This zip archive contains an Odin flashable file. It is not the complete stock image, so you MUST have KTUKNI3 already running on your phone or you will need to download it from the above reference sites, which carry complete stock firmware images, and flash it before continuing with this file. Instructions are included.
    • uploaded.net
    • torrent, mirror2

    (Flashing these ROMs will NOT trigger the custom counter)
    Jelly Bean 4.3

    Rooting Instructions:
    Default state is - not rooted - Proxyme has been included in this rom,
    Proxyme offers live su binary control, and without the need to 'root' the phone, you have...
    - SSH server with virtually unlimited user accounts, configurable with specific UID, GID, home directory and shell,
    - execution of scripts with elevated privileges (sample debloating script included),
    - tag along scripts for root ON and root OFF actions,
    - busybox switch

    E210KKKUGND3 ( 2014-04-29 )
    If you experience problems after flashing, please consider wiping data/cache in recovery mode before posting issues in the thread. As usual, it is highly recommended that you backup your data before flashing this firmware image, even though it will not implicitly wipe data/cache partitions.

    E210KKKUGNA3 ( 2014-01-22 )
    Backup your data before flashing this firmware image, because it will perform a factory reset and wipe the cache and data partitions.

    E210KKKUGML4 ( 2013-12-12 )
    Backup your data before flashing this firmware image, because it will perform a factory reset and wipe the cache and data partitions.
    Rooting Instructions:
    Default state is - not rooted -. To root, create a file (can be empty) in directory /sdcard/Download/ called rootme and reboot the phone. As long as that file exists, your phone starts up rooted, remove or rename the file and root is no more. You get access to the su binary and thus root access, but SuperSU is no longer included; install it from the Play Store.



    On Ice (Due to hotfile shutdown, minimal support for older firmware images)

    Jelly Bean 4.1.2

    (1) Press VolumeUp/VolumeDown/Power simultaneously for a brief moment to toggle between root/unroot
    This toggle only works if you enable Settings->Developer Options->USB Debugging. This video demonstrates how the toggle works
