Try towelroot, and if that doesn't work try chainfire.
You shouldn't need to downgrade.
HELP ME HELP OTHERS!!!
Just FYI, i am going to be doing research and asking a LOT of newbie questions so that i can make one big post to answer every single stupid, smart, and genius questions that come up. This will help me become well informed as well as be beneficial to the Android community as well. I will do my best to cover every single question, no matter how stupid, and put it a nice, easy to ready format. Now...
I cannot find the youtube video that i followed, but involved me extracting two files to my desktop, then opening one of them using ODIN and clicking start (After putting in to download mode, of course.). Afterwards, i used TowelRoot to root my phone,
Then i installed SafeStrap Recovery.
Now correct me if i'm wrong but i can only install CERTAIN ROMs with certain Recoveries installed, correct?
I ask this because i installed a ROM that had like 4-5 different zip files (I cannot relocate the ROM) and now my phone is in a boot loop.
WTF? What ROM's can i install and which ones can i not? Do i have to install CWM or Philz or Something else to get the really cool ROMs? I want a stable release with a customer Kernel in it where i can use KTweaker.
Thanks in avance, as always, guys!!!!!
