Updated my rom to original 4.4.2
Now ervery time i try to flash a kernel for root it fails.
Cwm , twrp or cf auto root even with an automated root program.
Tried different versions of Odin,nothing helps.
Get same error everytime.
It starts flashing and then fails.
Phone still works after, just no root access.
Searched lots of posts but cant seme to find an answer.
Anyone cares to help?
Thanks in advance.

Are you certain that you are writing 4.4 versions and not 4.3 versions? Everything kernel and recovery related is (slightly) different between 4.3 and 4.4, and because of the downgrade restrictions in 4.4 you can never write 4.3 stuff!

Yep tried different updated kernels.
Would the write protected has anything to do with it when i am in download mode?
After i updated to kitkat i also cant delete files anymore with a.o. xplore.
Maybe its related?

Grtz

Thanks man for your post.
I checked the reactivation lock box a while ago and that seemed to be the problem.
Already had the right kernel.
After installing cwm to become root had to install superSU 1.91.zip
Thru cwm.

The thick red sentence warning wasn't large enough ☺
Hail to xda and members! 👍👌
