Bought phone from ebay£100 working fine with a german DBT rom installed( was a german phone as it was main language on reset)
Used fine for 3 weeks except buying better battery.
Flashed philz cwm6 5.08.5 giving me root and 184.108.40.206, alls well.
Tried to upgrade via odin to a 4.4 cwm but fails so i di it through a zip and starts bootloop, wipe reboot no good still the same.
Reload stock via odin, passes but still loops, efs error.
I had somehow wiped the efs folder and not knowing what an efs folder was didnt have a backup so after 9 hours of reading, flashing back to gb and then rooting to make sure the efs was empty via ktool and explorers it was off to samsung after a stock jb via odin to go back to bootloop.
Thankfully phones just in warranty so new pda and usb and they flash it with LT9XEU.
So i have it back root with Philz-cwm6-XXLT9-ORA-5.08.5-signed(does the orange make it an issue on an open device?)and it works fine and runs fine and i back up the efs folder to a million places with 3 different programs.
Problem i have is, i want a 4.4 rom like most people but i cannot get a cwm with selinux support to run on this phone...heres what i have tried,
Installing philz_touch_6.26.6-n7000 on top of the 1st cwm which gives me black screen after 1st logo not getting to samsung one, but if i boot straight into recovery it does tell me im on 220.127.116.11.
Tried to install philz_touch_6.26.6-n7000 from scratch but get error status 7 in /tmp/(cant remeber)/package.zip.
Tried to install raw_kernel_r4_j43 before asylum rom install but this failed on signature.
That was last night and i thought id ask before trying anything else.I have reflashed stock back on this 6-7 times in 24 hours trying to sort this but im going round in circles.
I can flash the rom in odin no problem but never a recovery file it fails everytime.
Is it as simple as you have to install the 4.4 rom after new cwm as the old jb cant handle it hence the black screen or is there something else i need to do, any help is most welcome as after avoiding a £200 repair bill for a £100 phone i continue with some trepidation, many thanks all.
