Yes. I did not alter the file or name. It was uploaded exactly as I found it in the cache folder. It was in the folder /cache/fota/. There is also a file in that folder named fota.status, which contains 4 bytes.

hmmmm...I wonder how all those other S4 updates got made so we could all use it as an update copied into the SD Card.

Default update method!

Use Wanam xposed to change device from custom to official, then reboot phone, go to system update, check update download update, then use mobile odin to flash rooted?
