Question for Android users.
I can't change the default download directory of the Opera browser.

Do I need to root my device first or something?

I have both the normal and mini version installed and it's the same for both.
La vie extraordinaire.

Seriously if you don't have root access you have no hope, you are not controlling your device it is controlling you.
RW-R access is required to operate an Android device.

How you found any guides on rooting this device? Not all devices have detailed instructions on rooting them.
Which is why you should check before you buy one if there is an easy way to root it.

Re: Question for Android users.
Android devices these days are coming with extra hardware locking to prevent root rights.
Many you think are cheap and a good deal, you will soon find no one has even bothered trying to root it.

I tried, and at 99% it gave a couple of warnings asking if I should proceed.

I eventually clicked No, because I'm having an issue with my smart phone.

I decided to wait and see if I can resolve this first, because if I have to send it in for repair I don't want it to be rooted just yet because it voids the warranty.

The thing is, there is different hardware builds of this model.

No one repairs these glued together multi layer surface mount junk built by robots.

You can root an S4. My current S5 active is rooted also. Do you need a guide is that what you're asking for?

And yeah that's probably why you can't change your download designatiion. Unless it's opera cockblocking you.

The only thing repairable replaceable on modern phones is the screen or battery dependent on how cheap you can import the bits from ChingaLingDingLand.
The rest is glued together throw away garbage junk.

Thanks for the link.

But I'm pretty darn certain Kingo Root will work, but I'll keep this link open.

And yes, my battery ALWAYS shows at 100% on the top right of my screen, no matter how long I use it.

And when I charge it, the big battery in the center ALWAYS is 99%, I've never seen it go below 99%, lol. And it takes AGES for it to reach 100% even using a 2.1A charger.

But the main issue is is that my phone shuts off all by itself from time to time.

I e-mailed the person who sold me the phone and he sent me a new battery.

I'll see if it will fix this problem.

I've already contacted Samsung before and they told me to 'hard reset' which I did, but it didn't work.

If the new battery doesn't help I'm gonna send it in for repair.

When you get that you flash with Odin to the original firmware, root,then update back to the firmware and you keep the root access.

They have differing little codes for where and what they were built for.
