[Q] Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE (GT-I9506 German T-Online Branding)
hey guys, I'm trying to flash a clean rom (kitkat google edition) on my S4 LTE, the problem is I'm failing to install the cwm or any other recovery! I search some threads, tried different recoveries, different odin versions, and everything is flashing fine, but after the install via odin, it reboots, and no recovery! still the old e3 one! Im not a complete newb (I hope x)), did flash my SE X10, my Atrix 2, but failing this one.... mb its the firmware I need to change or the boot loader? android version is 4.3, if u need any details I can provide just ask ^^
I used these steps:
Steps to Install CWM Recovery on Galaxy S4 (LTE+) I9506
Step 1: Extract the Odin 3.07 .zip file using WinRAR/7-Zip/WinZip or any other extracting tool.
Step 2: Copy the Root Package .zip file to the SD card of your phone.
Step 3: Switch off the Galaxy S4. Then boot the device into Download Mode by pressing and holding Volume Down, Home and Power buttons together until a construction Android robot icon with a warning triangle appears on screen. Now press the Volume Up button to enter Download Mode.
Step 4: Run Odin on the computer as an Administrator.
Step 5: Connect the Galaxy S4 to the computer using USB cable while it is in the Download Mode. Wait until Odin detects the device. When the device is connected successfully, the ID: COM box will turn to light blue with the COM port number. Additionally, the successful connected will be indicated by a message saying Added.
Note: If the Added message does not appear, then try re-install USB drivers or changing the port on the computer.
Step 6: In Odin, click the PDA button and select the CWM/PhilZ Touch .tar file. Verify that Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time checkboxes are selected. Also, ensure the Re-Partition option is NOT selected.
Step 7: Double-check and click Start button in Odin. The installation process will now begin.
Step 8: Once the installation process completes, your phone will restart and soon you will see a PASS message with green background in the left-most box at the very top of the Odin. You can now unplug the USB cable to disconnect it from the computer.
thx for the help)
