donīt understand some guys who didnt do that or forget it.
Did you 4.1.2 root? If not, i recommed the philz kernel
easy way, no triangle
have a nice day
Actually had some issues there... on 2.3.3 I had Hellcat kernel, wanted BLN, and some custom UOT Kitchen mods. Did full wipe from phone, and got it stucked in bootloop.
Let i a while, then said, **** it, and used Odin to flash 4.1.2 in from download mode. Stock ROM, so no binary counter issues. Started to boot up, showed me language selection and then crashed into bootloop... Assuming that it didnt finished wipe previously... Couldnt even got in into recovery (or was too stressed, but its 3 keys to press, dunno). Then, switched to download mode, flashed 4.0.3 that I had lying around, went to recovery, did wipe, and it booted up. Played with it, and in one point I said, "meh, Ill leave it on ICS"... Then something else said "You wuss! It took you 2 years to flash damn thing, and now you will stick to ICS?!?". Downloaded Mobile Odin Pro that I have purchased a while ago, flagged autoroot and flashed 4.1.2 from it. Again wiped it (just in case) and it booted up nicely. About 3 hours of stress, googling and browsing XDA
Wife actually told my kid to stay away from me
Then, wanted again BLN and thats the reason i skipped Philz and went for Siyah kernel instead. All nice and dandy so far *knock on the wood*
Still have EFS backup on numerous locations ofc
Cheers mate and thanks for participating
