  1. Sir I just upgrade my jb to this KitKat. But I lose my root access after that. Can u help me how to root ?

    1. For now, we are still looking for an exploit. Rooting CMOS running Kitkat is too risky so we just need to be more careful. I will update immediately as soon as rooting exploit is tested.

    2. Download towelroot v3. Just google the apk file.. Once done.. Tap the welcome note 3 timea at the popup bo x enter this value.. 1337 0 1 0 6 1 and hit the trigger.. Its done.. Install supersu and update the binary in a normal mode.. Now you are have a total root access.

    3. http://towelroot.com/ link to download.. Just click the symbol.. Just rename it as ".apk" if the download output became ".txt" file..

  2. what is the advantages of UPgrading to kitkat??

  3. just upgraded to kitkat and transition effects are gone... SMH

  4. I hope you can find the right eploit soon. Im counting on you guys.

  5. im updated to KITKAT NOW. problem is so many Bug on it, is there other way to get back to stock rom(JB)? can u Help me pls..


  7. sir .. can i ask .. can we try this on other CM units (like CM Titan 2.0, Titan Pro or Cosmos X) ?

    1. obviously it must not be done one other devices.
