Hi,

First of all, what Galaxy S4 variant do you have? Also, what do you mean by Knox warranty? Do you have or do not the Knox bootloader? If you have, then maybe flashing a 4.2.2 ROM may not work. By the way, I've found the i9500 version in the OP of the OmegaROM thread:

I think you should search a little more before asking .

Don't you know what void warranty means? (hint - voiding the warranty on the device in a permanent way,here is great explanation)
Of course - If I have Omega 19V and want 4.2.2 based - you could assume that I don't have knox bootloader and want it to stay that way.


Please tell me if there is any more relevant info I forgot

Hi,

Thanks for sharing this info, now I may be able to assist you further . Regarding the Knox, I was thinking you had the Knox bootloader somehow... I've searched a lot now, and can't seem to find it for GT-i9505, what makes me think if they still have it is that GT-i9500 still has the 4.2.2 ROM on the OP, while GT-i9505 doesn't show it, only 4.4.2 or 4.3. Did you try asking in the thread?

tried to ask for help with the bug, no one even responded.... I don't bother to post this question, obviously it will be ignored and disappeared quickly... that's why I opened a thread - people actually see it(and not just post no.2000404839.....)

Maybe it's a little off topic, but why don't you flash a 4.4.2 rom that don't require the latest bootloader?

Hi,

Sorry, I've completely forgotten about this possibility! If you don't mind AOSP, you have the Google Edition ROMs and Cyanogenmod 11 ROMs (you can find them in Development Thread). When I still had a S4, I used to use CM11 without issues (no Knox bootloader) and dualbooted with a TW ROM (in my case Phoenix 4.3) for some TW features I liked hehe. But the best is for you to try . Most of AOSP/CM ROMs doesn't require the latest bootloader AFAIK.
