Source: >>>DEADLY-VENOM-V3.0 KITKAT EDITION<<< POST # 4

AT&T SGH-I337, NB1 downgraded to to MK2, BL already upgraded, Knox already tripped. Will post results.
Sweeeeeeeeet!!!! I'm so excited right now I don't know what to do! This works
When that DV ROM booted up and it prompted me for a wifi connection I was ecstatic. Now all my stuff is restoring from Google. I'll use this ROM all day at work and see how it runs but so far it looks like all is going smooth.

Edit: I know what to do.. Go and hit that THANKS button as many times as I can.

If I find any issues or bugs I'll report them.

I'm unclear exactly how safestrap even works when something is flashed to the stock slot. Is that still "safe" in terms of knox warranty void flag? How is it even possible to flash to the stock slot anyway, I thought something has to be left untouched or something along those lines.

Default Minor snag

This is worth noting but I will test it again. After this awesome ROM was installed and I went to my typical customization processes, a battery mod that I have flashed successfully before on other ROMS including the 4.3 version of this ROM caused SafeStrap to go haywire. I saw the warning about flashing other ROMS in SafeStrap after this procedure completes and I am wondering if this applies to other non-ROM customization zips. It was a strange quirk: SafeStrap warned that it could not mount /system and that the stock slot had no OS but in reality, the OS was there (because it booted). Unfortunately I had already performed a factory reset so I had to reapply all my apps and settings.

I am going to flash another mod (volume booster) that has always worked in the past and see how SS reacts to it. This time, I will not do a factory reset if it states there's no OS or that it couldn't mount the partitions.

Boot to download. Odin mk3 boot.IMG.

Reboot to safestrap. Wipe and install black box on stock. Install nb1 modules.

Boot back to download and odin nb1 magic tars. Let it reboot. Profit.

I was able to run BB 3.0 but I can't get the Wi-Fi to work. Do I still need to flash mk2 modules?

What were your results when flashing the volume mod? Did it work?

ted77usa - First of all many thanks for your great work. I have installed Deadly Venom ROM and it works great however there are two pieces that I don't understand

1) What does rebel1699's Custom Magic KitKat tar do? I know it has BL/AP/CP files that we odin. Please explain.

2) I started with NB1 stock and now I am on Deadly Venom ROM - if I need to go back to stock (for warranty purpose) what would I do? I am guessing ODIN NB1 USER USE THIS below. What will that do?

MK2 USER USE THIS : http://d-h.st/JqE
NB1 USER USE THIS : http://d-h.st/4Zy


Reboot and enter safestrap. Wipe stock slot, and restore your backup. Back to normal.
