thanks i just tried the other root option you gave me. i factory reset the phone then boot it up to download mode then i installed the cf auto root via odin, right now im going through the setup, im getting alot of messages saying stuff like maps has stopped working or youtube has stopped working. is that normal or did i goof somewhere>
edit: also not to be annoying with all the questions but i seem to be rooted now i finally see the supersu symbol in my apps folder but i still get that shield looking icon saying something tried to install without permission? theres no way to get rid of that since it samsungs doing correct?
