Samsung Galaxy S4 gets rooted – finally
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of best flagship smartphone of Korean company as it shines with very impressive specs and features, we know that the smartphone is not available on any shelve yet but it does not really mean that Android development community should wait until Samsung roll out the phone to stores, they’re already very excited and have bumped numerous goodies from SGS4 such as system dump (firmware), wallpapers, S-Voice app and more even the smartphone has been rooted, thanks to XDA developers.I can remember that this situation is similar to Samsung Galaxy S3 (previous flagship phone), root for Galaxy S3 was also achieved ahead of release.
It means that those of you who always love to keep their Android device rooted, they’ll have not to wait as they’ll be able to access SGS4’s system via rooted quickly. However it’s important to note that this root is just for Galaxy S4 with Exynos 5 Octa chip, but worry not rooting for Galaxy S4 Snapdragon 600 chip will be achieved soon in near future.
All you need to do is install the I9500XXUAMC6 ROOT_ODEX firmware file using Odin but as always do it at your own risk and I should also warn you that it hasn’t been tested yet.
