    Video guide for full S-Off and root. It's how I did it many months ago with the shift.

    Good luck!

    It really depends what version of android you're running
    You can find that information in Settings > About > Software Information
    Post it here when you find it and I can link you to the right guide

    Yes, but there are some that are even simpler than that for specific versions
