    I tried about 5 different options to root my 4s 4.4.2 nothings works, everything either goes to fail on odin to non permission on terminal roots. Can some please point me in the right direction or at least what my options are?? Any help would be much appreciated. i337ucufnb1 is my firmware

    I found this video here:

    I'm on v4.3 and am looking into trying this. I have no desire to go custom ROM this time 'round and just want the ability to delete all the bloatware crap that's taking up space and getting in the way of daily functionality. I also don't want to reset/lose any of my data as it's currently comprised. I need to research this process a little bit more but he does say it works for 4.4.2 so maybe check into it?

    If you're on 4.3, you're better off staying rooted in 4.3 till a verified for four 4.4.2 is out. I wouldn't use YouTube as a reference point for a currently unrootable device.. Xda is a better and more reliable reference source
