Default Are you able to root I9505 XXUAMDD

Hi All,

Its a 16GB I9505 running 4.2.2 and baseband XXUAMDD

can you root phones with XXUAMDD in the baseband?

Cheers for help in advance

Ok so looking at the guide most of the beginning steps are the same as S3 flashing

Strange thing I've just flashed with Odin used the file below

CF-Auto-Root-jflte-jfltexx-gti9505.tar

Odin shows success so I'm thinking "nice" all done for basic root. Yet I have no SU App and run the root command which also says I have no root access......any ideas?

Cheers

As per #2.5, did you see the red Android during flashing?

Did you enable USB debugging?
