    Me too, I’m trying to install the root, but I get always fail message. I’ve tried every method and I get the same result

  3. Chris Coombes UK says

    I too get this issue where it says it has failed. I believe the issue was that when I was running Kit Kat I had the option Reactivation Lock switched on. Since upgrading to Lollipop the phone still thinks that Reactivation Lock is active (as it shows when I put my phone in to Download Mode) but when I try and enable or disable it within Lollipop the tick box is always unticked. I am unable to turn it back on or disable it. Has anyone been able to resolve this??????? Many thanks
