    Well this doesn’t work unless the Phone is rooted. Have tried many times different ways, it still asks for root permissions.
    Please see how XDA can help without rooting the phone.

  4. This wont allow me to run the UMS mode, since it comes up with a message saying, “Could not get root privileges” Do I have to root the device? I’d much rather not root it than root it
