Hi Fburgos,

No nothing installed, when I ran the .bat file, it stoped installing as my kernal has been patched so the saferoot wont work on my phone with the buildnumber I have, it looks like I am just going to have to root it and not worry about the Knox problem.

That is bad news, i think you wait until warranty expire, soon the update to kitkat its suposed to come to your device, just wait.

Hi fburgos,

Yeah looks like waiting for EE to update to KitKat is the safest way to go, and who knows in 2 years when my contract ends there maybe a saferoot for the S5 mini (when it comes out lol)

thanks again for all the help and advice you have given me, I really do appreciate all of it.

Any update on this? I'm getting an S4 Mini on 3 that I'd like to debrand. Don't want to de-bloat/root/whatever, just flash a debranded ROM. possible?

Hi, just flash any stock rom you want. If you are from UK there is unbranded BTU kitkat version. Download it from sammobile.com and flash it by Odin. Its only a few simply steps to get it done.

I have a Three branded PAYG i9195. I was looking/hoping for a script to remove the carrier customisations such as:
- custom startup logo
- custom lockscreen
- "3" apps
- anything else the've messed with!

is flashing a stock rom the only way?
is there a CWM flashable version of the stock UK 4.4.2 rom please?

edit: i think this is latest stock rom http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/d...95BTUCNK1_BTU/
but i can't even see how to download, nor do i have Odin (Linux), and would prefer not to risk flashing it with Heimdall as i alread have CWM.

edit2: this appears to be what we want: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=48063831
not sure how to flash modem with Heimdall will need to check that!
