Have you looked in the Play Store for a root utility that operates within the device and not from an external computer? Have you tapped to become a Developer?
Thanks for replying, no I haven't looked in the play store but I will. I have tried to root from my computer and I have also tried from my device. I am running lollipop 5.1.1 and I don't think that there is a program that I haven't tried. I have been searching the forums including xda and I am seeing the same problem. There doesn't appear to be a solution at this point because the phone is fairly new.
I bricked my other cell so I am being very careful this time around. Henry
