Root E6553

I'm not responsible for any damage to your device. Do this at your own risk.

Very Important: Used this guide to back up TA, resulting the file TA-XXXXXX.img (in this case is TA-07102015.img)

If you do not back up your TA, some functions will be disabled. E.g. x-reality, denoise in camera aso.
