    I don’t expect this to work. Stop posting noob methods to root. Try something more technical and manual. This is bound to fail.

      well then, don’t appreciate the codings of the software developers that is already made for us. If you want a harder method, try finding a custom rom with manual rooting on it.

      If that is 2mlg4u, try SRSroot, check if your device is in the compatibility list and use it.
