[Q] Problems with ROM flashings (i9195)
I have a quite stressful situation with my s4 mini right now and I need your expertise.
It goes like this:
I was perfectly happy with my stock rom but for some reason I got this crazy idea of rooting and installing a custom rom.
So I followed the steps on this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2364980
After CWM was installed and before the phone was rooted, I made a complete backup via CWM (Backup1) and then installed the rootkit (as mentioned on the above post). After successfully rooting it I made another backup (Backup2), you know, just in case
Then I followed the instructions on the CyanogenMod wiki (http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Instal..._from_recovery
) and installed it on my phone. It worked perfectly and I had CyanogenMod installed. But after playing around with it a bit, I realized that I didn't like it that much for various reasons. So I decided to go back to my original ROM. So I restarted in recovery mode and restored Backup2. Well this is where the problems start
The phone would start but once it boot up everything kept crushing. I kept getting messages every 10 seconds that gapps is not responding and nova launcher is not responding and the play store is not responding, etc. And in general you couldn't use it. So I tried once again restarting in recovery mode and restored Backup1. But again the same thing. Everything kept crushing.
What I want now is to have my original stock rom rooted. Problem is, I don't know where to find it. All I found was this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...highlight=9195
but the download links don't work. Plus I don't know what my firmware's code is (eg I9195XXUAMF5)
Can anyone help?
PS. I live in Denmark and I bought here. Also the phone is the i9195 model with 8gb.
