GT-i9505 Kernel Root Fix!

For those of you having trouble getting full root using CWM or TWRP root method on the GT-i9505, this is most likely caused by SetUID in the kernel.

I do recommend installing Adam kernel by XDA user Wanam, as it’s stock-like yet should gives you better performance/battery life over stock.
