As the title says i am trying to install the Saberkat 1.5 rom on my SGH-I317. I am using Philz recovery and i am on the 4.4.2 bootloader. I was running DN3 previously and attempted to do a clean flash to Saberkat 1.5. The installation of the rom goes fine, but when i reboot the phone gets stuck at the Samsung screen for 15+ mintues. I have gone through the Saberkat 1.5 forum post, but i can not find anyone who is having the same issue as myself.


Thank you for any help you may be able to provide me.

That is what i always do. I format everything except for the sd card, and wipe both caches. I selected no at the root screen, and it gets to the samsung screen and just sits there.

I had a similar problem when I first tried to flash DN3 v5 4.4.2 (from Skynote Air 4.3 w/4.1.2 bootloader). The problem was that I was using an old version of Philz (5.5) and it would always stick at the "Samsung" screen after the flash. I switched to Philz 6.41 and it worked fine after that. The only problem is that the backups are not compatible (6.41 can't restore 5.5 and 5.5 can't restore 6.41).

Updated to the latest Philz version, and still gets stuck at the Samsung screen. I am going to flash TWRP and try again to see if that makes a difference.

I appreciate your help, i havnt had issues with any other rom. Ive done DN3, EzKat, Slimfast, and they all installed and booted up perfectly. I will chuck it up to bad luck and try a different rom.

4.4.2 is the only I had problems with not booting but Philz is the only one I can get every rom to boot

Funny thing, I tried to flash Saberkat 1.0 and it worked fine. Must be something with 1.5 that isn't working
