    Root Galaxy S4

    Is it possible to use Towelroot for my phone to root it? I heard you need Internet access to maintain root with Towelroot?

    What is the easiest way to do this? I'm a noob and all I want to do is edit the hosts file.

    Phone specs:

    Samsung-SGHI337Z
    Android 4.4.2
    Baseband I337ZTUUB0A3
    KERNAL 3.4.0-3238692
    SE for android is enforcing
    security software MDF v1.0 release 2

    Using Cricket.


    Does rooting delete all your data and Apps?

  2. Remove this advertisement.

    1. Yes, towel root works on 4.4.2. No, you dont need internet access to maintain root.
    2. Towel root on 4.4.2 is easy.
    3. Rooting does not delete data or apps.

    ....and i use adaway which edits the hosts file to block ads. Sometimes i manually edit the hosts file to add a specific ad site.

    Search my post on the S4 for rooting and flashing:
