After the downgrade via Odin. ..
Pull battery. .then power the phone into download mode again. .and run CF auto root. ..

The device will boot itself. ..

Use the UCAMA4 rooted rom from Mr. Robinsons thread. .for your downgrade. ..
Don't worry when the Odin flash fails on the bootloader portion. ..just unplug the phone and pull the battery for the CF step. ..

After boot and rom verification. ..power down and enter DL mode again to flash your custom recovery. ..

The bootloader doesn't play nice with the process. ..but it works. ..g

Use Kies to emergency recover back to stock 4.1.1.


1.) Downloads Kies onto your pc
2.) Install drivers to pic
3.) Open Kies and go to TOOLS > instal/upgrade firmware.
4.) Kies will ask you for you device model. AT&T = SHE I317. And your serial number. Located behind the battery.
5.) Hit start in Kies it will down load the stock firmware to your PC. Follow the instructions.
6.) It will eventually ask you to put your phone in download mode and connect it to the pc. Do this.
7.) Don't touch it. It is going to take about 10-20 min depending on your Internet speed and your computer.

When it is complete your phone will be back to stock. The same it was the day you pulled it out of the box.

***I would also make sure you back up any data on your phone because it will delete the sd card. It is also wise to remove any external storage sd.

****when finished you can re root using cf auto root or take the OTA update to get you back to 4.3.
