TW-4.4 ROM-FIX DevEd Devices
TouchWiz-4.4 ROM FIXER for Developer Edition devices
WARNING: These files are for Developer Edition devices ONLY. Kernels cannot be flashed on the retail VZW Note 3 devices!
THIS PROCESS ALSO SETS KNOX 0x1
Own a DevEd? Flashed the firmware/modem bits to the new TW4.4 in hopes of seeing some of the improvements or running a stock-modded ROM?
FIRST: Big shout out to @Imoseyon who has a VERY nice kernel for unlocked devices here:
Go over there and tell him thanks, because I had spent a day or so trying to fix up a boot.img but wasn't having much luck due to a crash in TIMA memory. But, then I read that someone had gotten the leak booted w/ Imoseyon's kernel and was able to rip it apart and pull just the absolute minimum changes to get a VERY close to stock kernel / ramdisk setup for the 4.4 leak.
WHAT IS THIS?
Several issues were noticed immediately on DevEd devices due to the fact that we can't flash certain portions of the updated ODIN files (aboot, sbls, etc):
The files below fix these issues and provide a VERY close to stock boot.img for use on DevEd devices.
FIX FILES: 2 flashable .zip files (for use in recovery):
- Play Movies won't stream
- External SD card won't mount
- Lockscreen settings don't work
- Imoseyon's kernel was the only boot.img which would run 4.4 leak due to aboot/devicetree changes and TIMA crashes
1st flash.zip file is for a new stock-based kernel with CONFIG_TIMA disabled, dt.img created from NC2 sources but combined with 1st ed dtbTool, and default.prop changes for disabling TIMA, securestorage and KNOX (default.prop changes pulled from Imoseyon's leanKernel 2.4 -- thanks!)
This file only needs to be flashed once (as long as you don't swap to AOSP ROMs). You can also use leanKernel by @Imoseyon if you like his work. The difference between this kernel and his are: I used the identical settings as the stock NC2 kernel (Kernel modules are enabled, etc) in an attempt to eliminate as many differences between the DevEd and the retail device. His kernel has a TON of tweaks and updates. But, could in theory have issues running the stock NC2 VZW leak.

2nd flash.zip file is a set of file changes which fix the issues noted by DevEd users on the leak (this file should be flashed after EVERY TW-based ROM is flashed)
