    Ok so after having my evo 3d for around 4 years give or take I finally decided flashing new roms for it just couldn't keep me satisfied with the phone any longer. So I went and got an S4 and I'm wondering if I am able to root it. I see multiple posts about this UVAMB baseband or something like that and that you don't want it. After looking at mine I see that my baseband is;


    So I'm wondering is this one older or is it able to be rooted easily? If so what methods do you all suggest? Your help and advice is greatly appreciated.

    Baseband deals with the radio, rooting deals with the operating system. It's like asking if a Chevy gets XM radio, or you need a Ford.

    If you're not paranoid (those black things circling over your house aren't government helicopters, are they?), try Kingo.

    So in the sticky all things root under the guide section first two bullets where it list motochopper method for uvuam something build and the May 7th ota thread with another baseband listed has nothing to do with rooting even though it's specifically addressing rooting techniques? I may not fully know if I asked the question exactly right but maybe you can use your bit of intelligence to try and understand what it is I was asking. I know that certain root techniques will not work as newer updates and firmware is released so I'm just trying not to brick my phone. If I didn't supply a certain bit of information that is needed to be known reply asking what info I need to post about my phone. But being condescending in your reply isn't needed
