    Beat me to it! I should have waited a few hours as I just rooted the wrong way today with links here, and then the right way with links elsewhere.

    Anyone try it here yet? I'll bet the only disadvantage is the flash counter incrementing, if that's even a thing. :D:D

    This is probably a stupid question. What does it mean "Pick option and go!!"

    Is Option actually a button to click?

    According to the screenie on xda, I'm sure that's referring to either option 1: root device, option 2: prep for recovery, option 3: install cwm, option 4: install twrp all within the root toolkit

    it doesn't seem to explain it very well on XDA, do I still use motochopper and Odin at some point and booting the phone in odin mode or whats going on?

    Does this wipe the phone, or is this the same as the old method, just scripted?

    Reading through the thread on XDA, it does not seem to wipe the phone.

    I'm going in!

    lol...when the download link comes back online.

    Back online and downloading now

    Here's a short video of downloading the program. It would have been nice if the guy actually had the phone to do show the whole process. I'm sure a video will be out soon enough with that.

    Does not wipe phone, seems to be a scripted version of old method from everything I read.

    This may be a stupid question, but I've been out of the rooting game for a long time.

    Will this work on Mac or just windows? I see .exe files once unzipped.

    Unless there are some Mac binaries inside or a .dmg I'd say it is probably windows only. :(

    That's what I was afraid of... Well only one way to find out!

    I successfully rooted my device earlier and all is going well, but I'm running into a snag for backing up in custom recovery/flashing new ROMs. The recovery isn't recognizing my extSD card, but the phone when booted will. I've moved the ROMs to the extSD to save space and want my backup to go there as well.

    Anyone found a fix for this at all?

    I'm surprised there is not a video walkthrough of this by now. If someone is member of XDA they should ask someone on there to do one. Or even someone from here.

    i had the same issue. my 64gb sd card was formatted in exFAT. recovery doesn't like the exFAT format. recovery does plays nice with fat32 though.

    you can reformat your sd card to fat32. first you will need to back up all contents of your sd card to your computer. formatting erases the card, so backing it up is necessary so you can copy the data back to the card after formatting.

    once the sd card is backed up you can format to fat32. i used a utility from the following link to format my card to fat32. Ridgecrop Consultants Ltd

    once formatted to fat32 recovery sees the card and can backup/restore just fine. it doesn't impact any features of the sd card in the phone. then copy your data back to the sd card and you're all set.

    Now that I'm rooted where do I go to find all the cool stuff I can do?
