Samsung Galaxy S 4 Seems Rooted Ahead of its Release, But Not Every Model

At times when we’re still debating what processor will launch with Samsung’s Galaxy S 4, there are new details that confirm that the Exynos 5 Octa will make the scene. As it turns out, the leaked ROM that we talked about a couple of days ago has just begun to show its roots, or well, become rooted actually.

As it turns out, the folks at XDA-Developers have already confirmed that this leaked ROM is rooted, but that doesn’t necessarily mean good news for everyone. This root is available only for a rare Galaxy S 4 model that runs the Exynos 5 Octa that we’ve been wondering about. We do know that there will be a more mainstream model running the Snapdragon 600, so don’t get your hopes up about rooting your phone on day one just yet.

Obviously ROM dumps are not necessarily a confirmation that even the targeted models will be ready for a user-friendly root out of the box, but we’ll keep you posted as news develop.
