    Hey all

    If anyone is curious to root and install custom Roms on their devices...this couldn't be easier. You install the app on your phone, and install on your PC.

    I have never rooted, and Dont have much knowledge about it. I used this installer and it couldn't have been easier. In less than 30 minutes it was done. I'm running 4.3.1 right now and its working flawlessly. Loving it.

    Give it a shot if you're like me and hate touchwiz

    Just as a matter of interest... what does your Knox Security flag show on your Galaxy S4, as per #1.4 of Warning - Knox Security on 4.3 quad core firmwares? :hmmmm:

    You do not have a Knox counter in Download mode on your S4? :thinking:

    Were you on Android 4.3 when you used the CM Installer?

    Download mode? Not familiar with that. I thought you were referring to the Knox app that came with 4.3. I was on 4.3 when I used the installer. However I downloaded the sprint 4.3 update and installed manually because it still hadnt been pushed to my device at the time....and I didn't have Knox with it

    My link in post #2 above, refers to the hidden Knox flag, nothing to do with Knox apps, that can be viewed in Download mode and how to go into Download mode, it even has a video to show you how to...

    I suggest reading the whole of that link in post #2, as it gives you a lot more info, as I believe you may have just permanently blown your warranty among other things.

    I've no idea what this Knox thing is (I run the Google Edition of the S4), but I'm curious; wouldn't it be gone once the CyanogenMod ROM was installed?

    EDIT: Never mind.. you posted while I was typing out my post. ;)

    My understanding is that rooting your phone voids the warranty. Not something I'm concerned about

    Rooting does void most warranties, but is usually reversable when needed.

    To date, reversing the Knox counter is not possible.
