Thank you.

I believe it will work with a tar file but I've not tried it myself. It would be safer to use the tar.md5 in case the tar file is corrupted.

Thanks for your tutorial. I made update from 4.3 MFK to 4.4.2 NDG and everything was successful. I did my own way how to extract and pack bootloader via Cygwin64 Terminal.

Thanks
Thank you!!!
Yesterday I installed GNE5 on my i9505, it is working like a charm. Knok void 0x0 and the phone kept the root. I built by myself the bootloader.tar.md5.

When I run the commands in CygWin terminal it just hangs.
Is there a newer version of tar that I need to install, or what am I missing

Hi. Right now I really don't know how I did v CygWin, because I don't have I9505 for a long time. But I made tutorial in my own language and here is the translation of that.

This is tutorial how to make .tar & .md5 file with bootloader files:

1) Make a new folder on C: disk and copy there .md5 and .dll file.
2) Run CygWin and write this command:
Code:
cd C:/path_to_the_folder
3) Another 2 commands (the second one takes a little bit more time):
Code:
rm -rf SS_DL.dll
tar -xvf name_of_your_file.tar.md5
4) This command is that long, not 2 commands!
Code:
tar -H ustar -c rpm.mbn tz.mbn aboot.mbn sbl1.mbn sbl2.mbn sbl3.mbn > new_name_of_file.tar
5) And the last 2 commands where you make from .tar file, new .md5 file.
Code:
md5sum -t new_name_of_file.tar >> new_name_of_file.tar
mv new_name_of_file.tar new_name_of_file.tar.md5
P.S.: The "new_name_of_file" is one name which is used multiple times.

**6) If you want to make .tar package from other files of that firmware here is the command, then just use step 5 if you want to .md5 file. But for this step you have to use another name, not the same which is in step 5:
Code:
tar -H ustar -c boot.img cache.img.ext4 hidden.img.ext4 modem.bin NON-HLOS.bin recovery.img system.img.ext4 > new_name_for_firmware.tar

Thank you prolama but i figured it out.
It was actually my own fault the terminal hung. I didn't enter the command properly.

Typed fast, and left out the > before the output.tar file

I successfully updated my Telstra mobile using this proceedure from 4.3 to 4.4.2 and maintained root. Used flashfire to create my boot loader archive and then mobile odin to flash the firmware plus odin 3.09 to flash the boot loader. All good and maintaine root and knox 0x00. Thanks.
