      what about sony models

  • Mark Friedman

    You pulled me out of a big hair puller with your unroot procedure and for that I thank you! I have the Sprint Galaxy S 4 (non-international) and used your rooting procedure. It appeared to work flawlessly then I found that text messaging was inoperable and that the root checker worked once as I used it to check to see if the phone was rooted and found that it was. I noticed though that after using root checker the “colorful” icon displayed a very dim color (basically black and white) and that I was receiving messages that parts of the phone had been stopped due to an error. Did any of this happen to you or any other users that you know of. You are doing a tremendous job for us die hard Android users!

    Any solution for rooting Galaxy Note Edge for AT&T with 5.0.1???
    It’s a nightmare with massive upon massive amounts of bloatware. Tried to root, no solution. Tried flashing back to KK. Bricked the phone. Took it to Best Buy. Samsung Experience tech re-flashed the phone and got it working in 2 minutes!!
    Still no root. It’s driving me nuts with the ads in apps, massive amounts of apps you can’t uninstall, mostly AT&T apps.
    Someone help with rooting this $1,000 nightmare!!!
