Its not been a long time Samsung announced its new flagship Samsung Galaxy S4, and it is still in pre-order state in many of the markets and not yet available to the public. But this hasn’t stopped the curious Android developers to figure out how to root Samsung Galaxy S4. A senior member of XDA has figured out how to root Samsung Galaxy S4, where he managed to recreate the system.img, add a ROOT, busybox, and pack into tar.md5 to flash it via Odin with the help of the developers who helped him to provide the Samsung Galaxy S4’s system dump files, partitions and CPU info. Although this root method is only for the Samsung Galaxy S4 GT I9500 Exynos 5 Octa 8-core version, and the users who have pre-order or the users in UK who will get a quad-core Snapdragon 600 series will have to wait until it gets rooted as well.
Its a good news for the US users who will get their hands on the Galaxy S4 Exnos 5 Octa 8-core version who can root their device as soon they get their hands on it, but sadly the folks in UK still need to wait for a while or may be until the device is publicly available. So if you are going to root Samsung Galaxy S4 then you need to be careful and follow every steps carefully or might end up bricking your brand new phone and also by rooting you device you are ending any sort of warranty comes with the phone and even it has been flashed yet so do it on your on risk. If you have any further questions or just want to go through the tutorial you can head to XDA Forum and have a look on it. Stay in touch for further news on it.
