number of times i've wanted to find something on xda, use the forums' search function and it basically displays EVERY thread in the forum. It doesn't do a great job of actually narrowing down what you're looking for. But what I tend to do now is just use google and type XDA at the beginning of my search. e.g. these are the result for "philz recovery" in the search feature

now do the same in google

it's the first result and takes you right to the thread.

the forum search leaves a lot to be desired, so I kinda get why people struggle finding thing on here :s

Hi ,

Knox is trip so i guess you do not flash the "knox free bootloader" from 4.2.2 so in practice you only flash a modify stock rom......
Read before doing
Search before asking
Don’t just say thanks if the information was useful, hit thanks too……

Omega one of the last good roms for the I9500 keep it alive , DONATE , your phone will thank you ....
