Root Getting worried about my purchase...


Android Enthusiast
I know this has only been out for about a week, but the GS4 Active forums aren't really seeing any traffic... so it is giving me an idea that maybe developers may not be that interested in this GS4 variant. I hope this thing gets root very soon. I want to de-bloat it so bad. There is a root bounty thread at XDA and it's up to $500. I am still in within my 14 day trial period, so I could trade in for a regular S4... but I really like the build quality of this phone and prefer all of the physical buttons over the capacitive menu and back buttons.

Devs... please help us with this phone!

Good luck!

I did hear the other day that sales have been pretty disappointing for all S4s. Apparently, Samsung had to drop the price (to networks, at least) just 4 weeks after launch. They're not shifting anything like as many of them as they'd hoped.
