    The telus is practically identical to the at&t, they've just put an m at the end of the model number so I've moved this to the at&t all things root. Others there should be best equipped to help you out:)

    Hi Ron :ciao:

    Check this CF-Auto-Root thread. Use Odin to install it. Get Odin here and extract the files. If you aren't sure how to use odin you can look at this guide. Just don't use the files in that guide (except Odin). They are not for your phone.

    Well... now you've killed your ability to get OTA updates and it's time to decide what else you want to kill with all those fabulous roms.

    As long as he unroots first and doesn't delete any system apps, there'll be no problem with future OTAs. Telus does not have a locked bootloader like AT&T.

    A root method for AT&T S4 with MF3 baseband (the current 4.2.2 build) with locked bootloader is now available: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2387577

    Bear in mind however, that AT&T has announced an OTA to 4.3 is scheduled to roll out in October. Rooting now will likely either prevent the OTA or unroot your device. Of course, if you root now, you can always freeze the update program and wait until a root exploit is available for the new version (or stay at 4.2.2). Your choice.
