    Oh the irony.:rofl:

    I'm peeking at the stickies, but I'm certain Mike will blow circles around me.

    Griff, you said you don't own a computer, but do you have access to one. We may be able to come up with a bootable USB or CD Rom solution in lieu of a pure no computer at all anywhere in the picture root tool.

    I think we need to know a couple things about your device first;)
    What version of Android are you on? i.e. 4.x
    If you could post a screenshot, or just type what you see in your "about phone" menu, that would be cool too:)

    I am familiar with Samsung devices, but not your S4...however, that won't deter me/us from seeing what we can find :D

    I noticed this thread. I don't have access to a PC but I did look up non-PC root methods and they didn't seem to be legit. I ended IP taking my phone to a friend who knows all things about tech and he rooted it with a computer. I think the PC process is faster and more efficient but maybe that's just my opinion.

    only way to root on 4.4 is via a computer, if you have 4.3 you can use pressy4pie's saferoot in apk form :).
