Its allways a risk to flash via odin. Anything could of happened during the flash. Am I goin crazy or does everyone not know that all ready. We allways flash at our own risk! Need to keep this issue real. Some people think they have a tickin time bomb in there pocket. Boom!

PhilZ Touch 4.00-b04

Download:
- odin: http://www.mediafire.com/file/3g6ke5...-i9300.tar.md5
- cwm: http://www.mediafire.com/file/m6z7ww...-b04-i9300.zip


This version wouldn't have been pushed as I did not plan any updates of the binary before 4.00 Final. But since we needed a repack with XXELLA kernel and the code was ready for these changes, I pushed it.

Changes:
Quote:

- Repack with XXELLA kernel supposed to be SDS safe
- Fix romname added to nandroid backups: now build.prop will be parsed instead of reading system properties
- Custom rom.zip scripts completely revised to add a bit of process progress (beta and will be completely revised in Final build)

I do not feel like it is so much of a risk to flash via odin. Unless you are a noob. I am a noob but I usually read a lot before doing anything on my device.

Good.. I think the patch is complete too, but my concern is that we just don't know if this is addressing SDS, another fault, or just part of SDS and there is actually more to the problem than what this patch is "fixing".

I only say this due to finding the strings in the patch in older stock kernels, where people have experienced SDS.

Yep no worries. I have reworded the OP a little more to reflect. Please feel free to help me phrase it

I think that best solution is to flash PhilZ Touch 4.00-b04 as is based on XELLA (secure) and using XELLA reom with kernel or Perseus. PhilZ recovery works with exfat - Yank kernel not - so is for me useless

Thanks rootSU for all your support (sorry, out of my 8 thanks as always)

Just an edit to the op: stock recoveries: instead of none, maybe add XXELLA

Bye

No worries.

From what I read, the stock recovery with the official XXELLA hasn't been updated... If anyone can confirm this please?
