    Hey,

    I have a Samsung s4 sim free and did try uploadfromtaptalk1368620727073.jpg rooting it last night using motochopper but it failed.

    See attached screen shot

    Can anyone advise on the solution or if I'm doing something wrong?

    Thanks
    Pauk

    Can't say I've attempted this type of root, I've always used cfroot kernels flashed through odin.

    Is it Def an international version(your profile doesn't say where your from!

    Can you still start and use your phone? Or get into download mode?

    I got the link from the xda forums but I have done some more reading tonight and because my firmware ends in MDM I don't think this is compatible! I think I need to use cf root modified!

    From the UK, thanks for asking questions I have posted on the xda forums and they just reply with do some searches! It's not that I haven't read up and watched videos it's because I want to make sure I don't brick my new phone lol.

    Never done this before either! Gonna get all the correct software and give it a go on think.

    Cheers
    Paul
