Default [TOOL](ROOT)(RECOVERY) i545 all-in-one root + recovery installer Updated 7-8-13

BHP090808 PRESENTS

I545 ALL-IN-ONE TOOL ROOT + RECOVERY INSTALLER

**READ READ READ AND READ AGAIN**

DO NOT RUN IF YOU ARE ON NEW ME7 OTA UPDATE!

This tool was created to simplify the rooting and recovery installation on this device. The rooting method used is the same method already posted in this development section. I just put all the resources into a tool and provided easy to follow instructions. The root process is not a one click. You must read instructions in tool window for each step of the rooting process. It is very straightforward and easy to follow, but you must follow the instructions exactly. Once rooting is complete all other steps are one click features including recovery installation.

Make sure you have latest samsung drivers installed. I recommend downloading Samsung Kies, It will automatically download latest drivers for you. Make sure unknown sources is checked and USB Debugging is enabled or the tool will not see your phone. Also make sure you do not have any pw or pattern lock screen enabled. As soon as you start step 1 check your phone screen. You will see a prompt to authorize your computer. Select ALWAYS ALLOW. This is the cause of the majority of errors. Also the usb cable that came with your s4 is recommended. If you are having issues with odin recognizing your phone check drivers and try using a different usb port. If using a desktop I recommend using the rear usb ports. Prep step (#2) removes install-recovery.sh and KNOXAgent.apk from your phone. These have been known to cause unwanted errors.

If when rebooting from recovery you are prompted with a message advising root may have been lost would you like recovery to fix it? I have always chosen NO and had no issues.

I do not offer support on either recovery or any rom you flash after this process. Check their respective threads for any and all information. Links to both recovery threads are included as options in tool.

I've included latest CWM (credit OUDHS & Shabbypenguin) and TWRP (credit Team Win). The rooting method and kernels used were provided by sextape. The step by step root process from open1your1eyes0. The motochopper exploit was created by the legendary djrbliss. Also a big thanks to djrbliss for Loki, without which none of this would be possible. Make sure to find these fine folks and give thanks, money, beer, your first born..... whatever you see fit.
I'd also like to thank niv3d, an21281, CraziiChief and all of my other testers. I'd also like to thank my wife and kids for leaving me alone while I worked on this. Mirrors are ok, just pm me the link to list in the OP.

Hope this makes someones life easier.... Have a nice day!!!!

Instructions:
Download zip file
Unzip on desktop
Connect phone with USB debugging enabled
Click RUN_ME (inside unzipped folder)
Pick option and go!!
Have patience it takes a few for cpu to see phone after reboots and in Odin
dont disconnect phone until process is complete

If stock start with option 1
If already rooted start with option 2 then choose recovery

Complete newb question here, and searching didn't turn up much.. Seeing as there is no Bootloader unlock yet, theoretically you should be able to just revert to stock and unroot and no one would know you were ever rooted/ROMd, right?
If I completely missed a post that explained this, sorry.. I searched and didn't see it.

You sir, are awesome. So easy. Always nerve racking rooting a new phone but this is cake. Took 5 minutes. A caveman could do it! Thank you!
