    Worth noting that there are no custom ROMs and that rooting is irreversible on certain models. Unless the dev community picks up, rooting guarantees you will not be getting kitkat

    • AzDayton

      F’ing KitKat is why I now need to root. Nobody told me that KitKat would hijack my SD card!

  • av8shunmeckaneck

    There is No “PDA” check box in the screen capture that you show nor on my ODIN. I have tried this on 2 different computers and its NO GO!!!

    Whats up??

    • http://www.howtorootmobile.com/ HowToRootMobile

      Its “AP” not PDA

      • av8shunmeckaneck

        Might want to fix the “PDA” part. I figured as much. I have tried this method several times on 2 different computers and Super User never shows up. Any ideas?

        • http://www.howtorootmobile.com/ HowToRootMobile

          If you successfully rooted your device. Thn you can download the Superuser app from the play store. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.noshufou.android.su

            I figured that out. It’s a bit misleading that the video says you will have SU after applying the first auto root.
