    Newbie..

    Hi All..
    I have had my S4 since April 28th(UK) and have decided to get it rooted..
    I have used the programme motochopper.
    I have just downloaded the Titanium app but I can't use it and also cannot use ROM Manager..
    I am not experienced this at all(left ios crap for Android) so don't know what to do next..
    Can you Help me Please..
    Thank You
    Kind Regards

    Welcome to the Forum. What do you mean the ROM didn't work? Does your phone start normally? If so, download Root Checker from the Play Store. Install and let it check if you are properly rooted.

    Good morning jeffrey..
    My phone hasn't been rooted after i tried yesterday..
    Apparently, there's quite a few people who can't root the S4 if it's on T-mobile/Orange/EE here in the UK

    Jeffrey, just another quick question, sorry
    Now that my S4 has been rooted, how do I go about getting the updates, such as 4.3 so on.. I'm told that unless I de-root, I cannot get OTA updates...
    I was also told, that the 4.3 is now available for us who have rooted our phones?
    Thank You

    As long as you didn't modify any files whatsoever you can still take OTA updates. However, you will lose root unless you use an app like Voodoo's OTA Root Keeper and backup your root. After you take the OTA you can then restore root. Also however, that is not guaranteed to always work.

    Also, if you do use OTA Root Keeper, backup root, then "temp un-root," to take the OTA. After updating, restore root.
