Finally after hours and hours of trying different methods I finally have NFC working on the i9195. I used the stock UK FW I9195XXUBMJ7 and also works with the stock I9195XXUBML1 FW from EE network UK.
- Using Odin flashed the FW, Carried out a few wipes for good measure and then re-flashed FW I9195XXUBMJ7 from SamMobile.
- Still NFC will not toggle on.
- Using Odin flashed custom recovery (recovery-clockwork-18.104.22.168-serranoltexx)
- Installed the GT -i9195 Rootkit_v2
- installed KNOXDisablerFree_v1.0.1.apk and disabled the KNOX notifications etc. (will properly remove KNOX later)
- installed Root Explorer app
Using root explorer navigate to system>lib>hw, find the file ‘nfc_nci.msm8960.so’ give read write permission and renamed as others have mentioned with all lower case. Did not even reboot but the toggle for NFC stays on but after a reboot back to square one.
I tried using the S4mini_NFC_FIX_StockRom.zip before but no luck but combined with renaming and then using the S4mini_NFC_FIX_StockRom.zip it seems to be working fine now.
Restarted, Switched off the phone for a while and then back on, more reboots and it seems to be staying on.
Hope this way works for all. Good luck
