Okay, I got everything ready and I am going for it.

About what you asked me:

1. You did flash a Chinese firmware? -> Yes I flashed a 4.4.2 Chinese stock firmware (I9500ZNUHNF1_I9500CHUHNF1_I9500ZNUHNF1_HOME.tar)
2. Is your download mode in Chinese? -> Yes, the download mode is in Chinese.
3. what is the size of your internal SD? -> I am not sure what do you mean by internal SD, but it is the 16GB version and the SD card is just 2GB.

I will get back here with the results to let you know how it went.

Thank you!

Good morning,

Here is the the info about the space:
Avaialbe space I9500

From what I could understand, I can flash the "GT-I9500_sboot.tar" after I flash the PIT and Russian firmware, or it has to be done before that?

Right after I get an answer from you about the bootloader I'll start, because I can't figure out what else could go wrong.


Thanks a lot for your help and patience!

Hi mate,

The NON CHINESE PIT gives you a Internal SD size of about 8.2 to 8.5 GB of memory , the CHINISE PIT give you about 11 GB ( used space + available space) , advantage more memory, disadvantage make it only compatible with chinese roms.....or r customs roms with that PIT

regarding this GT-I9500_sboot.tar for what i understand you are right.

It worked
Hello,

Again thanks for all the help. I eventually did it after the root method failed and it is working. My S4 bought from China runs now an Russian stock firmware.
