Default [Q] Not able to install TWRP or CWM recovery. AT&T S4 I337

*****************************************
*******HELP HELP HELP*************
*****************************************
Hi,

I am unable to install CWM or TWRP recovery on my AT&T US - S4 I337. Baseband is NB1.
I have tried almost every option on xda , rom manager , twrp manager , loki method using emulator , 3 way tool , casual etc.
Loki gives loki aboot version error. Earlier phone was on NC1 , got it on NB1 using odin.


I want to get rid of original stock , which is loaded with lot of crap and want to install light weight custom rom.

Any pointers , help is highly appreciated.


Thanks.

Download Free version of Rom Manager and after install see if it will not install which ever you want through it CWM or TWRP. Way I do it. You are Rooted???? Here is link https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...mmanager&hl=en After install open and click on "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" then it gives you choice of CWM or TRWP

I already tried rom manager after rooting the phone, and get the success message as well. But when i restart phone in recovery mode , I am still getting stock recovery options instead of CWM or TRWP.

You can't install custom recoveries. Our bootloader is locked. Your only option is using safestrap

U can't install a traditional recover. Since U are on NB1, your baseband is locked and your only option is Safestrap (TWRP). Read the instructions carefully at least once all the way thru and then proceed. Pay close attention because it's not like most phones. It works just fine. U can have a heavily modified Touch Wiz Rom or even now a AOSP based Google Play Edition Rom.

Proceed here:

I am trying to install custom rom , without safestrap. As bootloader is locked on my phone , I cant use CWM.
Using safestrap , I was able to install [AOSP] Official 4.4.3 - S4 Google Edition. but now I am not able to encrypt my phone.

Any idea on how to encrypt phone now ?
