    Okay i rooted my lg optimus elite with help from a thread by giantpune,i didn't have to have a PC AT ALL!! Unfortunately, there's no such method to root my S4 without installing the drivers from a PC. Ive come to terms with that. :( But My stubborn ass wants to get around that since I don't have a PC available and i REALLY REALLY want to root this magnificent phone. My question, my sounding ignorant aside, is can I install KIES on a tablet and then to my phone from tablet if i have a usb cable that permits me to do so?? Rather than using Pc?? I'm wishful thinking aint I??

    Okay guys, I rooted my S4 today, and am trying to find a reliable source for downloading the chaos rom for it. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

    what baseband do you have ? would be something like this . I545VRUFNC5

    the last 3 letters/numbers are important if you want to flash a custom rom . NC5 has a locked bootloader and can only be flashed with safestrap. most others can be flashed with Odin. Also, what ver of android ? 4.3, 4.4.2 ?

    here are a few links for the Chaos rom

    Chaos ROM + KTweaker Kernel for Verizon Galaxy S4! | GalaxyS4Root.com

    [ROM] ChaosROM-VZW-V7-NCx-4.4.2-SS-MDK-MULTI… | Verizon Galaxy S4 | XDA Forum

    If you have NC5, be sure and get safestrap 3.72, it is the Only one that will let you flash onto a NC5 device, otherwise you will end up with a brick.

    Just to clarify...

    Towelroot won't brick my Verizon s4 running nc5, and safestrap can be used to install a custom room such as cyanogenmod? So much information can be read on this from many different sources that seem to cancel out each other...

    Towelroot is the safest way to root a nc5 device, and will not brick it . As for custom roms, nc5 devices have a locked bootloader, at least for now. So custom roms are very hard to install without bricking your phone . there are a few roms that will work though. The Chaos rom is a good stable rom, and fairly easy to install and has alot of nice features. Hopefully soon the AT&T and Verizon based nc5 devices will be able to have the bootloader unlocked. until then we are limited on roms, but plenty of other mods are available :)
