Thank you for your, I was able to successfully root my phone. I had a question about step 8. When I connected the USB it didn't seem to download any drivers. The text and screen seemed to stay static after boot up. Currently, I'm trying to restore data using an app on my PC. It is failing the USB connection. Is step 8 where it should be downloading USB drivers? I didn't see a step that referenced the USB driver download files you link at the bottom of your post. Could you detail the use of the USB driver file?

Most of the PC has those drivers installed probably because you connected the phone the PC in the past, so that step is listed just to warn the persons to wait until the drivers finish installing if the procedure starts, otherwise driers are already installed.
See you ;-)

Under Mobile Networks I don't have the option to put APN settings. Also, System select shows change CDMA roaming mode. When I select it shows two options Home only or Automatic

Hi Haakonas,

just connect your device to the PC, you will see it listed in your PC "Devices and drives".

Double click on your phone icon and copy the zip file there.

Check this video, is shows a similar procedure:

SuperSU is an app that you will install by following this guide, you can disable Knox from its options.

The unlock button is the one you need to push on our app to unlock the device when it's rooted:

No, each license is tied to a specific device IMEI, so you will be able to unlock that device only.

Included with the unlock license you will have Hotspot and tethering unlock, MSL read, debrand, Hands Free Activation removal and many other features.

The purchased license will last for all the phone lifetime and you will get all the future updates and goodies.
See you ;-)

If your ROM device version is QJ3 or above then our app cannot unlock it, is that your case?
The app advise the customer that such ROM and above (on such model) are not supported, maybe you purchased a license anyway?
See you ;-)
