CF-Auto-Root updates
Posted on 2014-09-24, 64 comments, 398 +1's, imported from Google+/Chainfire

A whole bunch of devices' CF-Auto-Roots have been updated from older firmware bases to 4.4.x firmware bases. Means these CFAR's work again on the latest bootloaders, primarily.

A large number of devices have been added as well. Together these total well over one hundred updates.

I've also made some small changes to the page, like adding base firmware version information and MD5s.

This includes sph-l900?

Chris Robinson commented on 2014-09-24 at 18:09:

I don't suppose any of these will work with the AT&T Galaxy S5.  One with the latest "security" updates?

philip molloy commented on 2014-09-24 at 18:18:

can you update the samsung galaxy s3 i9300 from 4.1.2 to 4.3

Do u think T-Mobile galaxy note 2 will get a 4.4.3 ROM with s pen working?

Do you think there is any hope for the Verizon Moto X?

Thanks man, U r the best.

Kevin Michael Sanders commented on 2014-09-25 at 16:49:

Couldn't root before. I believe the updated firmware bases (on 4.4.2 NE2) made the difference, but I'm certainly no expert. Got the disable Knox message and loks like smooth sailing from here. Thank you so much, Chainfire and have donated.

David Griffith commented on 2014-09-25 at 23:14:

Any ideas on how hard it would be to have this root an AT&T Galaxy S5 with a kernel version date of July 22, 2014 or later?  The hole used by Towelroot to root this device has been patched.

I'm having the exact same problem.  Most of the functionality of the phone is gone -- I might as well have gotten an iPhone.  Well... at least the S5 doesn't bend all that easily.

This 500 firepaper application automatically closes down every time I try to set it as my home screen wallpaper in my Moto G. I have uninstalled and re-installed and checked it may times but the same problem. Please cancel my order and refund me back. My Google order id is 12999763169054705758.1324680078039240

Kane K commented on 2014-09-30 at 19:30:

thanks for the great work you do! is there an auto root for SM-T230? cheers

Carl B commented on 2014-10-01 at 22:33:

I made the mistake up updating my SM-T900 before rooting it. Could you please update the Auto-Root for it? It won't root now, the screen becomes checkered and I have to factory restore. I bought the Pro version of all your apps, thank you again for all your efforts.

Does anyone know why cf lumen makes all the system animations and stuff have a slight slow down?

Scott Hirschman commented on 2014-10-08 at 00:40:

Great work your doing for all of us.  Looking forward to getting a Note 4 Verizon and have to have root capabilities :-)

No s3mini ? u.u then still using Cwm 4.4.4

Jonathan Yee commented on 2014-10-17 at 18:26:

I rooted my Galaxy S5 back in May using Chainfire AutoRoot for the T-Mobile version, SM-g900t. Haven't flashed anything since; just wanted to have root access for a couple apps.

When Android 5.0 Lolipop rolls out to the Galaxy S5, how can I update my phone to that? Would I have to unroot, update to Lolipop OTA, and root again? (if so, would I have to find a different method of rooting or can I use the same Chainfire AutoRoot?)

Or is there a way to update to Lolipop without losing my root?

Ryan Gates commented on 2014-10-17 at 23:25:

Thank God for you. CF auto root is a life saver. I used it for my note 2 and I use the exact same one for my note 3. It works like a charm every time.

Jonathan Yee commented on 2014-10-17 at 23:54:

+Ryan Gates Thank God for me? No, thank God for Chainfire! :)
