Yes use the new IOROOT15 to root the device. But I have been unsuccessful in flashing any roms, however I did get twrp to work with FreeGee app in the android market.

What version of twrp? Sounds like you may need to update.

I've been unsuccessful in getting any roms to work. I tried 4.2.2 rom and got lg screen then black, had to restore nand backup from twrp recovery but it was hellish to get into, had to do the hold vol+pwr precisely, almost gave up. So, reverted to a backup just fine.

Next tried to loki_flash recovery 2.6.3.1 (then was going to do them in order-2.6.3.2>2.6.3.3 [have not tried going directly to 2.6.3.3) and was hit with an unsupported aboot error (device mismatch).

So now i'm going to try and use flash tool to revert back to 11A, root, install twrp (I hope this is possible and I don't brick my phone [i'm new to all of this])

Anyone tell me if this is an acceptable option to proceed? Thank's in advance.
