+Chainfire you should seriously think of opening your own software company.

Any chance of getting the hannspree hannspad 13.3" on this list? Its great but the way they have the ROM set up, it runs horribly considering the specs. Thanks!

Samsung galaxy golden i9235 root?

how you can help with that???

Kimmi PinkFairyPrincess commented on 2014-03-01 at 20:42:

+Scott Rule The way I do it is volume down, menu key and power all at once. This may not be the proper thing that you need. But it is something I use when I have to send mine back for warranty exchange or trade in as I can factory reset from there and other things. If it locks up you can reboot from there as well. You might want to check it out.

Justin Lock commented on 2014-03-01 at 22:32:

+Chainfire it would be AMAZING if you could package something that allows us to repartition the memory of the Galaxy S4 ;)

Gidz Cross commented on 2014-03-02 at 15:30:

Keep up the good work +Chainfire

Question, is there a way to set back the knox warranty void 0x1 after root the galaxy S4 GT-I9505. triangle away only set back the counter. Please help!!

Michael Steil commented on 2014-03-10 at 17:49:

+Chainfire the T-Mobile galaxy s4 just received kit Kat today hopefully we can get root easily ?

Malcom X commented on 2014-03-10 at 17:51:

It will just cf root it few second literally I say use 1.85 or 3.85

Tristin Leonard commented on 2014-03-10 at 21:31:

Yeah if u can get root eaisly for kitkat for the tmobile s4 that would be awsome cause I did not update to 4.3 cause too many people had problems so yeah im on 4.2.2 still but it runs good but I heard kitkat is better so yeah when root is good on it I will be the first to test it for you

Csergő Balázs commented on 2014-03-11 at 14:08:

worked with my i9505 hungarian telenor S4 with 4.4.2! thanks Chainfire! :)

Michael Steil commented on 2014-03-11 at 14:10:

Actually I can confirm this does work for the sgh-m919 with the newest nb4 firmware!

Tristin Leonard commented on 2014-03-11 at 14:33:

+Michael SteilOk nice to know thanks I wish it

wouldn't kill the knox bootloader but hey not all wishes can be granted thanks for confirming that though

Malcom X commented on 2014-03-11 at 20:23:

Chainfire is the man ... FYI rom toolbox is great for rooted phones. if you know you way around rooting phones try it out.and another fyi cyanogenmod 11 is working great on s4 sph L720's after cf-rooting. I used Odin 1.85 clean quick no errors. Just remember every don't panic and always back up phone or ROMs peace. Android-Revolution.

Michael Steil commented on 2014-03-11 at 20:26:

+Tristin Leonard actually just rooting does not trip Knox but it will once you flash a custom recovery so if you want to stay stock rooted and install a module like wanam to customize you are good

Matthew Wheeler commented on 2014-03-17 at 20:42:

Tried running CF Auto-Root on a Canadian Galaxy Note 3 - SM-N900W8 and get a bootloop after a successful install which states "Recovery is not seandroid enforce" before rebooting.

Running official 4.4.2 - N900W8VLUCNB7

Anyone else have any luck?

Franco Pellicciotti commented on 2014-03-18 at 14:19:

I ham having the same issue as Matthew. I have a Canadian Note3 (SM-N900W8) and updated to kitkat. I tried OTA and then through ODIN. the update worked fine, but when I use CF-Auto-Root-hltecan-hlteub-smn900w8, it gets stuck in a recovery boot loop. ("Recovery is not seandroid enforce")

Any help would be great.

Malcom X commented on 2014-03-19 at 03:50:

+Matthew Wheeler are making sure you not using a old root or all your drivers are updated if that don't work it may be the version of odin 3 your using is just bugging on you. Add me on here and hit me up willing go threw issues with you pretty bored at moment when I first started I bricked my phone so many time and bootlooped it I panic my first issues I encountered but didn't give up hope am a pro now :D

A.L. Marfo commented on 2014-03-20 at 16:56:

+Chainfire Auto Root not working on hltetmo 4.4.2 followed direction to the letter.

Victor Valdez commented on 2014-03-24 at 21:08:

i have the same problem with my note 3 n900w8, i try to root but on the screen ( Recovery is not seandroid enforce) any solution, Latin America!!!!

Matthew Wheeler commented on 2014-03-24 at 21:28:

Just a heads up that I rooted my Canadian SM-N900W8 using Odin v.1.8.5 and CF Auto-Root for the SM-N9005. I know it's the wrong model for CF Auto-Root but it works!

Malcom X commented on 2014-03-24 at 21:35:

Good deal bro

Victor Valdez commented on 2014-03-24 at 23:28:

any solution for the note 3 n900w8 kitkat to root??

Matthew Wheeler commented on 2014-03-25 at 05:04:

Victor, I posted the solution earlier. Read my comment above.

Malcom X commented on 2014-03-25 at 11:52:

Thanks Matthew was trying help Vic but I passed out last night had long dday sorry Vic.

Victor Valdez commented on 2014-03-25 at 13:58:

The solution is used Odin v.1.8.5 and cf auto root sm n9005 for sm n900w8?? That correct

Malcom X commented on 2014-03-25 at 14:02:

Odin 3 1.85 should just try it trial and error my friend just make sure you have your stock ROM too so if it don't work you can at least keep trying with no worries I bricked and boot loop my s4 so many time at first lol but now its nothing the note 3 I have done yet but have too my brother has one

A.L. Marfo commented on 2014-03-25 at 21:02:

+Chainfire Galaxy Note 3 T Mobile version successfully rooted yesterday thank you.

James Magrish commented on 2014-04-04 at 21:02:

I have a P900 and it hangs on the cache.img.  Any idea?

Clifton Montgomery commented on 2014-04-12 at 15:05:

There seems to be a little confusion with the Samsung Pro 12.2 models and their numbers.  I have a TAB Pro 12.2 and its model number is SM-T900.  The NOTE Pro 12.2 is SM-P900.  Chainfire's root is for the NOTE Pro, NOT the TAB Pro, even though its listed as such.

Gregory Dean commented on 2014-04-14 at 16:12:

Has anybody seen an auto root for the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 model SM-T900 that went on sale March 6th?

Gregory Dean commented on 2014-04-14 at 16:13:

Same model as Clifton Montgomery has.

Clifton Montgomery commented on 2014-04-14 at 16:37:

As of now there is no root for the SM-T900. I'm waiting on it too!

Bryan Connolly commented on 2014-04-16 at 00:40:

T900 please!!

Gregory Dean commented on 2014-04-18 at 16:40:

I'm with Bryan.  We need root for the SM-T900 model plz

Bryan Connolly commented on 2014-04-18 at 20:33:

Please - Please! I will donate! 

Matt Schiller commented on 2014-04-19 at 17:04:

SM-T900 root needed here too! Certainly willing to donate for it...

Maximilian Hauser commented on 2014-04-23 at 09:47:

I'm also very interested in a root for the sm-t900. I will too donate for it.

Gregory Dean commented on 2014-04-23 at 14:37:

Please get us a root for Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro model SM-T900 (12.2)

Gregory Dean commented on 2014-04-23 at 14:38:

I'll also donate happily for it

CHAMA CO commented on 2014-04-27 at 15:35:

Yes pls give us a root for SM-T900 Tab i will donate also.thx

Clifton Montgomery commented on 2014-04-29 at 13:42:

I can confirm (thanks to some brave souls at XDA) that the SM-P900 root WILL work for the SM-T900. Just rooted mine, took about a minute to complete. Just use the zip download on chainfire's page. It has everything you need!

CHAMA CO commented on 2014-04-29 at 13:52:

Thanks for the info will give it try

Franklin D. commented on 2014-05-07 at 13:50:

I got a Tab Pro 12.2 SM-T900 too and I am waiting for root for SM-T900 too.

I think Tab pro is better than Note Pro

I hope a root method will be availlable for it

CHAMA CO commented on 2014-05-12 at 20:48:

Got my tab SM-T900 rooted with Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 Wi-Fi SM-P900 CF-Auto-Roots working good thx.

Gregory Dean commented on 2014-05-12 at 21:10:

Does auto root trip the Knox counter on the galaxy tab pro 12.2 (SM-T900). If it does, I'll still do it.

CHAMA CO commented on 2014-05-12 at 21:46:

Yeah it will

v1.30 deactivates USB debugging

v1.20 let Access Root : NO for Android Commander

Is there a fix for ADBD Insecure or the root file ?

You are running this from your computer with Odin 3.09, right?

Ajit C.S commented on 2015-03-18 at 00:23:

I have a query to the author regarding his AutoRoot Tool for Motorola MotoG XT1033 (Asia/India). Many websites says it does both Unlocking & Rooting. But there are contradicting information, that MotoG requires separate unlocking first, using Unlock-Key obtained from Motorola website.  So your tool atleast for MotoG only does rooting.  If so 1st statement (websites) is incorrect!  Pls comment.

t s commented on 2016-12-09 at 23:03:
