Problems installing DK 6.1.1 and 7.1.1
First... no, second post... did a lot of reading hoping that I didn't duplicate what someone else already posted...
I have been running Dynamic Kat 4.0 since June or so... life has been busy.
Read the forums made the backups took me forever to install Safestrap 3.75 (took me a while to realize I could install 3.75 and use that to uninstall the 3.72 that was already on the system from the DK 4.0 install and re-install) Then I did a backup in Safestrap so I had a good return point. Downloaded DK 7.1.1 and did the factory reset, and installed 7.1.1 did a reboot and the setup would never get past the "android" blinking. Waited about 45 min and did a shutdown (held power button for 6 seconds) when the phone came backup figured I did something wrong so I did it again. Factory reset, installed DK 7.1.1 and rebooted this time I waited about 1 hour and still nothing. Went back to the forums and found a post that recommended wiping everything but the sd card and then do the 7.1.1 install. So I tried that in addition to wiping Dalvik and cache post install then rebooted. This time the phone hung at the opening Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It never went past the power on.
Due to this I couldn't get back in to Safestrap to recover or try something else. Found a link to use Odin to undo the soft brick (thanks carl1961). Took a wile to fine the root, installed busybox, tried to install safestrap 3.75 many times... took a while to realize that my SE Status was Enforcing and that was causing problems... found a SE_Status_Change_via_kmem.sh (thanks Walter.White for that one) and then had to relearn the linux commands to use the Status Change script. Finaly managed that and got Safestrap installed. rebooted and tried to install DK 6.1.1
That seemed to work but hardly got through the setup when I got the message "Unfortunately, the Process com.android.systemui has stopped". After that it was all I could do to reboot. got back into safestrap and was out of time. So i recovered back to DK 4.0
Downloaded a fresh copy of DK 7.1.1 and tried again.
Wipe Dalvik and cache, Factory Reset, install DK 7.1.1, wipe Dalvik and cache again and then reboot.
Same result as before could get to the blinking android and would never move on from that.
Downloaded a freash copy of DK 6.1.1 with the same method as above and had the same com.android.systemui has stopped message.
Decided to give the full wipe (everything except the sd card) and install DK 6.1.1 from that except this time it hug at the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 start-up screen. using Odin method to recover again and the process to get back to safestrap to recover back to DK 4.0 again...
Any ideas what is going on?
So I may have figured out the problem... The files I was trying to use to update my Note 3 are:
GPETheme7.1.0.zip and GPETheam6.1.1.zip
With goldmantisak's mediaflie link for the rom files I realized that I was trying to use the theam files in place of the rom files... downloading the ROM now and will try again in a few hours... have to love a slow WLAN connection.
That was the problem... i installed DK 7.1.8 on Rom Slot 1 to test this morning with no problems. I will backup and install correctly tonight.
