[Q] To all who willing to help, about rooting galaxy s4, tq
Hi, 1st of all, i really really did search the whole forum, but still, can't find my answer.
So, i decide to ask....
I currently recieved a galaxy s4 as a gift.
But i find out that it doesn't have any google items: google play, google search etc.....
Due to last time I have flash galaxy note for custom rom with no google item in it before, so i think i can use the same solution to it.
But unfortunately, this couldn't solve the problem.
Google Play did install, but force close every time i start it, even with clear data or clear cache (from setting > app manager).
Then I tought that could be the firmware problem, as it is showing that there is an update ready to be install, thus I pressed install.
But still, nothings working.
Then I go check wherether the s4 is really an s4 or just a knock off.
With the data below:
Device name: Galaxy S4 (can be change)
Model number: GT-I9500
Android version: 4.4.2
Baseband version: I9500ZCUGND1
Kernel version: 3.4.5-913788 dpi@SWDD5817#1 Mon Mar 31 18:54:48 KST 2014
Build number: KOT49H.I9500ZCUGND1
SE for Android status: Enforcing SEPF_GT-I9500_4.4.2_0011 Mon Mar 31 19:09:37 2014
I found out at samfirmware.com that this is a real galaxy s4, but is for the china market.
I saw some post saying that you can reflash other country stock rom so that google play can be use.
But what i saw for rooting tutorial is for jellybean(4.2) not kitkat(4.4.2)
So now, at here, i wish that some one can help out to solve the problem I'm facing.
Main thing, to get the Google Play shop to work.
An Android without Google Play store looks kind of wired.
Many thanks for reading my post and greatful thanks for helping me, thank you.
