Rooting the Samsung Galaxy S4 will enable you to gain privileged access to the Android subsystem. This will let you manage or remove all the bloatware installed in your device by default. Basically, it will allow you to enjoy things that you cannot get in the usual settings of your device.
The Rooting Process
Doing it is easy, just follow these steps on how to root the Samsung Galaxy S4:
1. Download the latest version of Odin from a reliable site and extract the files into a directory in the computer.
2. Power off the Samsung Galaxy S4.
3. Enter the Download Mode by holding the Volume Down and Power buttons at the same time. Wait until the Warning message comes out of your screen.
4. Then, press the Volume Up key to Confirm that you are entering the Download Mode.
5. Plug the smartphone to the computer using its USB jack.
6. Start Odin, load the file, make sure that the box beside Re-partition is unchecked and hit the Start button. From this point, everything will be done automatically. There will be a Passed message if your phone is compatible with the software. After that, the files will be installed to the device. The phone will also reboot during the process, so just wait until the Android logo with an eye patch appears.
That’s it, you now have access to the subsystem of the Samsung Galaxy S4.
The instructions are for Windows users only and these will not work on Mac users. If you are having trouble opening Odin, it is possible that the antivirus software in your computer might be preventing it. All you have to do is disable the antivirus software until you finish the process. Make sure too that the Odin file is compatible with your device.
In addition, rooting can be very risky. You can risk bricking your device and you will certainly lose your warranty. We at The Droid Guy only provide this information for users who are willing to take the risk and we do not guarantee the results of the steps provided by the source.
