If you are looking to root your Samsung Galaxy S4, thank George Hotz aka Geohot. Just barely 2 weeks after being launched, the Samsung Galaxy S4 has been rooted and Geohot couldn\’t have made it simpler. According to Geohot, passive roots is “so last summer”.
Step one: Own a Samsung Galaxy S4 device
Step two: Visit http://geohot.com/activeroot/ on your Samsung Galaxy S4
Step three: Click on the lambda icon
Step four: Install the APK
Step five: Run activeroot
I\’ts impressive to note that a bounty of more than $450 was put together on the XDA forum for the first person that could successfully root the Samsung Galaxy S4 and post instructions. What\’s more impressive is Geohot picked up his Galaxy S4 one afternoon from AT&T after coming back from the beach and rooted it not long after.
