    hey guys

    i have a friend wanting to root his S4 but he doesnt know how to go about it and i used to root phones like crazy, but it seems like the rooting process has changed in the 3 years that i have been away from doing roots.

    would anybody be willing to help?

    hes also wanting to get a root for his sony xperia and i know this is the samsung section but i might as well try to kill two birds with one stone.

    id appreciate any help possible.

    We really need more info. What's the Android version? Baseband?

    I don't have the devices just yet. Totally forgot about all that. I should be getting the phones soon to work on them just decided to get a head start on the process of what I would need.

    question before we do, do you mind voiding warranty forever with no way to go back?

    Yeah so go into download mode. You'll have to Odin the firmware tar. It's in that thread.
