I'm NOT RESPONSIBLE for what you do to your phone, proceed at your own RISK. This method WILL ROOT your phone but will not change CURRENT BINARY, SYSTEM STATUS or the WARRANTY BIT also known as TRIPPING KNOX. If you want to know your phone current status, look up "HOW TO PUT PHONE IN DOWNLOAD MODE". To get out of download mode just hold power button down for 5-10 seconds. 1. On your phone home screen go to SETTING--> MORE--> SECURITY--> and check mark UNKNOWN SOURCES. 2. Open your phone web browser and type TOWELROOT by geohot, open website and tap on RED LOGO, download will start automatically. Once download is complete close browser and go to APPS--> MY FILES--> DEVICE STORAGE--> DOWNLOAD. Tap on the RED LOGO and install app. When app finishes installing open it and tap on MAKE IT RAIN, once installed restart your phone just to make sure everything installed smoothly. 3. Go to PLAY store and install ROOT CHECKER, open app and tap on VERIFY ROOT, it should say that your phone is rooted. 4. Go to PLAY store and install SUPERSU, open SUPERSU and if a screen comes up saying KNOX has been detected do you want to disable, just hit cancel. DO NOT try to disable KNOX, that might trip it. 5. Go to PLAY store and install TITANIUM BACKUP, open app and give it superuser permission. Use this app to delete bloatware or unwanted apps. Use this app with great caution, deleting a SYSTEM app can mess up your phone. Look up "HOW TO USE TITANIUM BACKUP" to get a better understanding of how this app works.
