    USB won't be recognized by computer

    For some reason, whenever I try to connect the USB from my phone to the computer, it won't recognize it, which means I can't root it. I've tried several different cables and tried it on my laptop but they won't work.
    I have the Samsung drivers installed already.. Is there a way to root without using a computer?

    Thanks

    No luck, tried almost everything. It still charges whenever I plug it in though... Eh. I might end up just selling it if I can't root it

    Do you have the Samsung drivers installed on your cpu or laptop?

    Edit: U already answered my question about the drivers. Don't know what it could be if not the drivers.

    you may have a driver issue, make sure you are using the right driver for your operating system. there is no way to root this without a computer as far as i know.

    You might have charging port issues. From what i know, there is not an app that can root it without pc connection...
    If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?

    Do this first to test drivers.

    Make sure the phone is unplugged from the pc. Go to control panel and uninstall anything that says Samsung mobile driver or Samsung unified driver and reboot. After the pc boots go to Samsung's website and download the latest available drivers then install them and reboot again. After the computer boots back up the 2nd time plug in the phone. If that doesn't work then as suggested by Dina you might have a charging port issue
