We might have spent a few hours toying with Samsung’s new mobile hardware, but tinkerers over at XDA-Developers have had enough time to root the Galaxy S 4, already. This means those (very) early adopters can start perusing the inner workings as soon as it arrives on store shelves. There’s a video of the process after the break and you can pick up all the necessary files (and warnings of not to meddle with what you do not understand) at the source. There is one tiny caveat to the news, however, as the rooting magic is focused squarely on the Exynos 5 Octa model for now. According to SAM Mobile, several batches of the new Galaxy phone are rumored to be packing Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600 instead of Samsung’s homemade chip series. An official spokesperson from the UK branch has confirmed that it’ll arrive in the there with the Snapdragon processor.
