How to Root AT&T/Verizon Galaxy S4 AT&T SGH-i337

AT&T SGH-i337 Galaxy S4, Verizon SCH-i545 Galaxy S4, or Galaxy S4 Active on Android 4.4.2, there’s finally a new root method that will root your S4.  This root method also works on all Galaxy S4 models and does NOT trip Knox!

Step 1. Make sure you have Android 4.4.2 in Settings->About phone.

Step 2. Open up a browser on your Galaxy S4 and go to TowelRoot.com.  Press on the Lamda sign and it will download an APK file.

Step 3. Click on the APK file you just downloaded.

Step 4. Hit “Settings”.

Step 5. Hit “Unknown Sources”.

Step 6. Press “OK”.

Step 7. Press “Install” to install the towelroot app.

Step 8. Ignore the Google warning and press “Install anyway”.

Step 9. Press “OK” to open the Towelroot app.

Step 10. Press “make it ra1n”.  Wait about 30 seconds and if your phone doesn’t reboot, try pressing “make it ra1n” again.  If you see a force-close window, try force closing it by hitting “OK”.  Your Galaxy S4 should have rebooted.

Step 11. Once rebooted, download the Superuser APK file and open it with MyFiles app. (Do not download from Play Store as the version is not the latest version!)

Step 12. Press “Settings”.

Step 13. Press “Unknown sources”.

Step 14. Pres “OK”.

Step 15. Press on “Install”

Step 16. Hit “Open” to open the SuperSU app.

Step 17. Press on “Continue”.

Step 18. Press “Normal”.

Step 19. You will also get a message to disable/remove KNOX, make sure you hit “OK” as that will remove all KNOX apps which will interfere with your root if you don’t do it.  (KNOX is an unnecessary, useless security app you DO NOT NEED, only interferes with root.)

Step 20. Now your Galaxy S4 should be fully rooted, go ahead and download any rooted app like Titanium Backup app and you should see SuperUser pop-up window like seen below

Congratulations!  You’ve successfully rooted your Galaxy S4 i337 on Android 4.4.2!
