    Ok so I just updated to 4.1.2 and am missing my root access now. Can I root on this firmware? I looked at [ROOT] Jelly Bean root update [ROOT] - Android Forums. I have the files from that short guide downloaded and on my SD card. But it almost seems too simple... Should I do it or find another way?

    Hi RoboticOtter :wavey:

    Sorry for the late reply. Follow this guide and use Odin to install TWRP. Then read the last post in the thread on how to root with TWRP. Jellybean makes it pretty easy. :)

    Try enabling usb debugging if you haven't. Try a different usb cable if you have one and/or a different usb port. Do you have the samsung drivers installed? If not, download and install samsung kies and it will install the latest drivers.
