Hi

If you've done a nandroid backup, flash it.
If no backup, you can safely flash with odin a 4.2 ROM from sammobile.

Done the both because of some problems with kitkat and worked fine even if I'm on kitkat now with everything working fine.

I was wondering the same thing myself cause i tried several times with different Stock ROM's without any success??

When you are trid to flash it comes up with some kind off authenication error (The only ROM i able to flash is the 4.4.)
And i am not even able to Root without getting stuck during boot. Tried several senarios.
CF-Root causes boot lock
T
ried Also : recovery_6.0.4.7.tar.md5
Then i get this Warning: kernel is not seandroid enforcing

Status for SE for Android:
Enforcing + type details

Build no:
KOT49H.I9295XXUCNE4

I read somewhere that a Stock ROM with modified files could do the trick:

Maybe such a ROM would do the trick? Maybe someone else has done this work already.

i hope so - cause It kinda sucks running a Stock ROM
