Samsung Galaxy S4 is an awesome device with great specs and literally ruled the smartphone market since it was launched. Samsung unveiled so many new features in the phone that the complete package as a phone minus the hardware specs was still the best ever available in the market and even today there is no device matching or bettering it except maybe the Galaxy Note 3 which was recently launched. Samsung though has released this device in many model numbers which include carrier dependent ones and also a global variant. The problem is that Samsung does not offer an official boot-loader unlock system, hence to do that there is a need to root the device.

Samsung Galaxy S4

Step by step guide to root Samsung galaxy S4

Now since some carriers install additional boot-loader security measures, certain software is needed to do that to get around those measures for rooting the device. So here too we are going to be using a software tool called Odin which allows for easy rooting for Samsung devices via a PC.

1. First of all you need to install Odin on your system. When that is done, run it and in the opening menu you will see a button called “PDA”, just click on it.

2. Now Odin will ask you to select a root file.

3. Then power off your phone and when it is completely shut down, and then press the power and volume up button to enter the download mode.

4. Connect the Galaxy S4 to the PC and then click the Start button on Odin.

5. Odin will keep processing for a moment and check if your phone is capable of automatic root. If it is found, then it will push the file over to the phone. And later when you see the Super-user Android logo, it means you have successfully installed root.

6. Now all you need to do is reboot your phone and then you are done. (It should most probably work)

Note: None of this replaced the recovery or unlocked the boot-loader. The device is still more restricted than other rooted Android phones. A different method that replaces the recovery will give you more control and helps get around some of the roadblocks that stop ODIN from running the process automatically.

Now that you have rooted your device you can do whatever you want with it and enjoy loads of features on Android on your phone. You can even install some custom Android versions like CyanogenMOD and many more. So now you are not at all bounded to anything and can soar free with your Galaxy S4 and enjoy your smartphone to the fullest.
