This one-

and this one-

The first one fails to flash (Status 0) and the other one seems to flash fine in CWM but no root. Anyone have a link to a good SU.zip?
I flashed the su you stated in your post which is in my dropbox here:
http://db.tt/pshPre7P :super user efghi-signed.zip I flashed in cwm and all is fine. Worked like a charm... This is the same su from the Ultimate Galaxy Nexus guide.

I need to know a couple things.

1. Does it give you the option to restore your google apps?
2. Does it work?
3. Is anything broken?

Not really in that order

Rom: http://www.mediafire.com/?gqm1gfxdn3td86v


Must use these gapps: http://www.mediafire.com/?tl76fi3es9zabul

1. Make a nandroid.
2. Wipe data.
3. Install rom.
4. Install gapps.
5. Reboot and pray.

This will help me get Sprint ready for BAMF Paradigm.

You will need the recovery posted earlier for Sprint.
SMH... I'll be your sucker since I already screwed up on trying to change the screen's DPI before making a nand... Hopefully I have some functionality at least until an official build or custom ROM is available

Default Third time is a charm?!

There is nothing particularly awesome about this build. It is a stock torospr build from aosp, rooted, no tether block, yada, yada.

I need to know a couple things.

1. Does it give you the option to restore your google apps?
2. Does it work?
3. Is anything broken?

Default STUCK with Android and Exclamation Mark in Recovery

I am stuck -

Unlocked my Phone

Ran the same Toro CWM file that most seem to have run and it looked like it worked -

When I tried to go into Recovery - I ahve a little android guy with an exclamation mark on his back - now, I can still fast boot my phone with ADB - but when I tried to re-install CWM (thinking that maybe it didn't work the first time) I get an error message and the phone doesnt get the CWM File - not sure what i am doing wrong - tried to follow QB Kings Videos and did everyhting he did step by step - but I am getting hung up when I try to flash the CWM - and I have to think it has somethign to do with that error screen I mentioned (android guy with exclamation)

Any help would be greatly apprecaited - I know enough to be dangerous - so your guidance is greatly appreciated.

thanks -
My Phone Galaxy S5 G900T
My Rom: - X-Note TMT v.5 | Alliance 4.1
My Recovery: TWRP
Kernel: KT-SGS5 - NF6 - KTweaker
My Carrier - ATT
