Odin to Stock, Updating, Rooting, and Safestrap Guide

Post 1 - Odin and Guide Notes
Post 2 - Odin to Stock, Update, Rooting and Safestrap Guide
Post 3 - FAQs

Once you are rooted with Safestrap installed, the world is your oyster. Check out this thread...
[INDEX] All things AT&T [MK2 NB1 NC1 NI1 NJ4] and ROM List



WARNING 1 -- ALL GUIDES BELOW WILL WIPE YOUR DEVICE. Make sure you have you data backed up before attempting.

WARNING 2 -- Follow these guide at your own risk. Everything worked for me, but... NOTHING IS 100% GUARANTEED.



Who is this guide for?

Anyone using an AT&T Galaxy S4 (SGH-I337) AND...
-- has the MF3, MK2, MLD, NB1, NC1, NI1, or NJ4 bootloader
-- wants to return their phone back to stock.
-- was told to “Odin back to stock” in another thread.
-- thinks they bricked their phone
-- is bored and wants to start fresh before flashing another ROM.


Who SHOULD NOT use this guide?

-- SGH-I337 users with a MDB or MDL bootloader. (Don’t use this guide or you’ll be locked down for good.)
-- Anyone using another Galaxy S4 variant, such as T-Mobile, Verizon, i337m, etc...
-- Anyone using a Galaxy S4 Active. (You have your own forum here.)
-- Anyone who does not take the time to read the notes below and F.A.Q.'s in Post 3 before flashing.


ODIN NOTES


1. If you see 0:[COMn] (n = any number) then Odin can see your phone
2. Make sure Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time are the ONLY boxes checked
3. If the Odin tar is an "all in one", then it will go in the AP slot, otherwise, match them up with their appropriate locations
4. A successful restore will show the follow message... (file name in line 4 may be different)

Enter CS for MD5..
Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
Please wait..
ALL_ATT_I337UCUFNB1_I337ATTFNB1_505595_REV06_user_ low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5 is valid.

If you have any issues or Odin does not see your device...
1. Try a different USB cable
2. Try a different USB port on your PC
3. Uninstall Kies. (Kies sometimes interferes with Odin)
4. Download the latest drivers from the Samsung website here. (Uninstall the existing drivers from your PC, reboot, and then install the new drivers.)

FAQs


What is ODIN?
Odin is a 3rd party program that can restore your phone to factory settings.


Do I need to take my SIM and SdCard out?
If you follow the directions and everything goes as it should, neither your SIM or SdCard will be affected. I, personally, leave both in and have never had an issue. Worst thing that can happen is you loose the data on your SdCard and/or you need to go to ATT for a new SIM card... Your call.


What is the difference between these instructions and the ones found in other threads?
Some are the same and the others might use different files. I'd like to think they are more detailed than some of the others out there. Besides, These are the steps I used and I know they work.


I have a different tar file. Can I use that one instead?
Sure. It's your phone, you can do whatever you want... But if you have problems, don't look at me for help. These instructions are specific to the files I have referenced. Different tar files may yield unexpected results.


I’m on MDB or MDL base, why no love for us?
You have an bootloader which can be loki'd to flash any kernel. If you follow any of the directions above, your bootloader will be permanently locked and you will be stuck with stock kernel.

I bought my phone on MF3 and have no experience with loki or your bootloader. I only post what I know from personal experience. I suggest you look in this thread for more info... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2314494


I took the NB1 OTA, can I Odin the MK2 files?
No. You can only restore your current base or newer. You cannot go backwards. (Exceptions... MLD leak and NC1/NI1/NJ4 updates. Those that flashed the MLD leak can Odin back to MK2. Those that took the NC1, NI1, or NJ4 update can Odin back to NB1.)


Which recoveries can we use?
If you are on MK2, NB1, NC1, NI1, or NJ4 base, then you have a locked bootloader. SAFESTRAP is the ONLY recovery you can use.


Safestrap won't install for me. The app installed fine, but it won't reboot into recovery.
Did you try SELinux Mode Changer and set the mode to permissive? Some people need to do this... That's why it's in RED.


What about those of us on MF3 that want to odin back to MF3 stock?
Sorry, but there are not too many of you left. I may add your steps at a later date, but for now, these links may help you out...
-- Odin file -- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2504311
-- Root steps -- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2387577
-- Safestrap v3.65 -- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2448925


Will these instructions work on a Mac?
No. Odin is specific for Windows. There is a mac version called “Jodin”, but I have never had any luck flashing large files with it. More info can be found here... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2598203


I'm rooted with Safestrap recovery installed. Now what?
Start here... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2616221 or one of the other excellent threads in the ATT Galaxy S4 Forums on XDA

This is a very helpful tutorial, been looking into all of my options since I picked up my s4,it's on 4.2.2 with the mf3 build. This will hopefully get my phone up to nc1 or ni1. Not sure what build I want yet, gotta check out which has the roms I want to check out... Also need to charge my phone a bit but will try this method out in a little while. I'll let you know how it goes in a later update.

Hey guys,

I believe I bricked my phone. I had an AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4 SGH-i337 NC1 build. I now have a brick.

Below is a conversation I've been having about getting my phone working again.

If NEbuddy can help I am desparate. My biggest need is to get the Nandroid backup working , that I made right before this bricking happened. As you can see I need to get the Nandroid backup working or I'd get it fixed back to stock by Best Buy.

If this is confusing please take the time to message me or write in this thread.

As you can see most of this is background. Right now I'm stuck at using Odin v3.09 to get back to stock NB1. Then I can follow the instructions above.

TIA and please read the information below.



************************************************** **********************************
Basically, the process is simple. First let's start off by getting some information...

Head over to Settings --> More --> About Device

What is your Baseband?
What is your Build Number

************************************************** **********************************
Hi N,

Baseband version i337UCUFNC1
Build number KOT49H.I337UCUFNC1

J
************************************************** **********************************
BTW I'm rooted with 3.45gb on sd card and 6.50 on external sd card free space. Also have d/l of Graviton ROM. Also have safestrap installed and super su, Busybox, se linux mode changer, Secure settings.

************************************************** **********************************
Since your rooted, have Safestrap installed, and such it's fairly straight forward...

1. Put the Graviton ROM's zip file onto the external SD
2. Put the NC1 Modules zip file onto the external SD
3. Put the SuperSU zip file onto the external SD
4. Reboot into Safestrap, go to Wipe and wipe everything but external SD.
5. DO NOT REBOOT OR EXIT SAFESTRAP
6. Hit the back arrow to go back to the SS main menu, hit install.
7. Select the Graviton ROM zip file (you made need to navigate to the SD card)
8. Flash it
9. Do not reboot yet.
10. Flash SuperSU, and the NC1 Modules.
11. Reboot, set APN's,etc.

If any of those steps fail your need to use Odin to restore your device back to stock. So I advise backing up BEFORE doing this.

************************************************** *************************************
Hey there,
How do I make another Nandroid backup first. I have a Nandroid backup of the stock rom after I rooted. I forget how to make the backup. I think I used Safestrap to backup but I don't remember. That's what has been keeping me back from flashing a rom, as I worry that I something will go wrong and I have no current backup.
J
************************************************** **************************************

Inside Safestrap go to Backup, follow the instruction on the screen and let it do it's thing. Afterwards plug the device into a PC and copy the TWRP folder off the external SD onto the PC itself.
************************************************** ****************************************
Hi N,
Sorry for the repeated posts, but I'm trying to solve what I can. I found the instructions on how to Odin back to stock. The first file I need is Odin v3.09. I can't find this file to download. I wonder if it may be my browser. I'm using Chrome on a Windows 8.1 machine. IDK how to get the file.
Thank you,
J
************************************************** ****************************************
https://www.dropbox.com/s/1mujevgk0b...Odin-v3-09.zip

Your need to install Samsung Kies to get the proper drivers.
http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/co.../KiesSetup.exe

Follow the instructions here...
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...34&postcount=6
************************************************** ******************************************
Hi, N
I grabbed the Odin file and followed the thread here http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...oting-t2926642. Also ran the Kies driver install. But Odin just hangs and displays "Not responding."
I'd like to throw a few buck your way so maybe we can finish this up someway and I can do that.
Thank you,
J
************************************************** ******************************************
There really isn't anything I can do to help you further. Do remember that the entire process of modifying your device is "at your own risk". I haven't encountered any of these problems with Odin, Safestrap, etc. - If your device is bricked now your best bet may be to take it to a Samsung agent at your local Best Buy and they should be able to restore it to stock condition. The only feasible way I see to help further would be a session on Skype (via chat or microphone) and use of a remote access to your PC (you'd retain full control). The only issue with this is being online at the same time. Other then that I'm afraid you've hit a brick wall, keep trying... and post in the forum and perhaps others can help you solve the issues with Odin.

I was wondering if there is anything I can do with my Nandroid backup I made? What do you think?

If and when you get your device successful modded you can hang onto it to restore if anything goes wrong. As I said in the last message keep researching around the forum and especially this thread. Thanks for the donation, it was really generous and definitely will help me out in these tight times. If you have any other questions feel free to ask and I'll try my best to answer them in a quick manner.

What issues are you having with Odin? Have you downloaded the nb1 file and extracted it? You should have a .tar.md5 file, user that in Odin AP slot

I grabbed the Odin file and followed the thread here http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...oting-t2926642. Also ran the Kies driver install. But Odin just hangs and displays "Not responding."

Did I maybe screw up the Kies Install?

Under Control Panel, Device Manager there is an entry under Universal Serial Bus Controllers, entry is Samsung Mobile USB CDC Composite Device

That's what I see.

Also under Windows Explorer my phone doens't show up anymore since bricked.
