I have the Cricket Galaxy S4 SCH-R970C and was just wondering which subforum applies to me? IE to root, custom recovery, and flash ROMs from? I usually deal with Sprint/VZW phones (mainly Nexus devices) so I've never had to decypher by model numbers. Thanks for the help.

You can search for "jfltecri" because that's the "Name" for your phone. But there aren't special forums on xda

@Tkkg1994 So here's what I've done:

Use TowelRoot to root my device. It is currently on 4.4.2.

I have booted into download and saw these, so I know I'm good here:
Knox Kernel Status: 0x0
Knox Warranty Status: 0x0

I would like to install a custom recovery on my device as well as custom ROM.

1. I saw CyanogenMod's guide (here) to installing a custom recovery then custom ROM. Will this guide trip the Knox flag for the recovery OR the ROM?

2. (Knox, as I understand it, is for warranty purposes only, correct?)

3. If that guide will trip Knox than are there any you know I should follow for a custom recovery and custom ROM?

4. Also, which subsection of S4 would I be able to install ROMs from? I've seen the jfltespr lump in the jfltecri a bunch when I search. Would most sprint ROMs work for the Cricket S4?

5. And lastly, if I do not care about Knox, does it matter how I go about installing the recovery and ROM? (I know what I'm doing flashing wise, I've owned a GNex, Nexus 5, few tablets, etc) Just pushing the recovery.img via adb then flashing a ROM? Cricket does not offer warranties and if I ever flashed it to sprint I wouldn't get a warranty so does warranty really matter?

Thanks for the help and sorry for being long winded. If you do decide to GRACIOUSLY answer, could you kinda format them like mine so I can follow along? Thanks!

1. Yes it will trip your knox, because you don't have the original firmware on your phone, it only can be tripped once. For both things.
2. Yes, you're right there.
3. Question is, have you got a problem when your knox will be tripped?
4. The Sprint ones should work fine. I would make a backup in the recovery and try a sprint rom.
5. If you don't care about it, it's don't really matter how you do it. I would flash Philz Touch through Odin3.09 and than install your custom rom in the recovery


Sorry that I answered that late, didn't saw your post before. Sorry again!
