I own the Samsung Galaxy from Walmart/Straight Talk, with Verizon as the carrier. Model#SM-S903VL. This is such a rare variant, that I’m pretty sure only about 17 were manufactured. I have tried Kingroot(apk & windows ), kingoroot,towelroot, One Click Root, I root and others I can’t think of at the moment. Point is, I can not find a root solution for the 903, but I understand the 900v has a solution for root that MIGHT work, but I’m too much of a rookie to try. I rooted an LGL22C with no problems, aside from kingroot being dug in like a tick. Please reply and let me know if toy have had any successes with this model. FYI Samsung’s own site doesn’t display this model no. And tech support? HAH! I’m positive that there is only ONE employee, a young Philippino girl that is nothing more than a parrot, reading from a monitor. I have had to teach her the components of my issues EVERY TIME I’ve called, just stop she could look it up.
