Default [Q] Unable to root via Odin: Write protection: Enable

Hi guys, ladies,

I try to root my i9195 but Odin fails to write. I also noticed when putting in download mode that it says: Write protection: enable. See attached screenshot.



It's a Vodafone version of the S4 Mini, I can use different carrier SIM cards, but I cannot remove the Vodafone bloatware like 'Discover'.

Any ideas how to root this version and how to disable this Write Protection?

Thanks!

Andreas

Hello write protection is not the problem, I had the same trouble with mine you need to disable all antivirus and firewall temporarily then flash.

Wow, that actually worked! Thank you


For everyone that is in the same process, I used Windows8 and disabled my firewall and Windows Defender.

I followed the following guide for rooting:

This did not work for me. under download mode it say Write Protection: Enable

Funny thing is that I get a PASS when i flash with odin. "<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 1 / failed 0)" But when I boot the vodafone boot animation is still there. And if I Check under About it is still the old Product Code XFV not XFA which i just flashed.

I am loading

Product Code: XFA
PDA: I9190XXUAMF7
CSC: I9190OJVAMG1
MODEM: I9190XXUAMF7

It has this on:

Product Code: XFV
PDA: I9190XXUAMF7
CSC: I9190OJVAMG1
MODEM: I9190XXUAMF7

any ideas?

You need to go to recovery mode and do factory reset and wipe cache after that reboot. to go to recovery mode (volume up + Home Button + Power button)

I have the same problem. my phone is on XFV and I'm trying to flash XFE, but it's still on XFV, even after wiping the cache and doing another factory reset after the initial reboot...


any other advice?
