Flashing a vegafied mi5 file and not using the sd files should get you official and the ota. Then run sd files. Shouldn't require a wipe.

I really hope it's the former. If it was my phone i wouldn't care but she's got her live wallpaper and icons just the way she likes it. I'd have to hear it, but not the end of the world.

Yea. The only issue being samsung appears to wait until the next update to release the previous one. If they would release them at the same time it would be better.

You should be able to odin the official mi5 which would not require wanam and take the update than use kingo to root.. no loss of data

In this new version:

1. SuperSU updated to the latest version of v1.65
2. Fixed bugs concerning the conflict issue with certain apps after employing root script on Samsung Galaxy Note2,Note3 and S Series.
3. Removed several root scripts due to license issue, which would effect few SONY models.

well looks like ill be flipping my knox flag.
thought i had everything done correctly file looked good.
copied over to system..
locks up at sprint logo.

and i guess theres no true adb access in the stock recovery only sideload which doesnt seem to be any use for replacing system files.
unless im missing something i guess ill be installing twrp.
oh well it was bound to happen sooner or later.

ill still be trying to get yall an odex version though.

pulled battery. tried all sorts of ways to get it to let me push the file no go.
apparently the stock recovery only wants to let me sideload an app not push a file.
will try a factory reset but that shouldn't fix it.
even tried kies.
ill mess with it for a bit but i bet im hosed.

not really a big deal for me. i knew id trip it eventually.
gives me more options in the future with less drama.

Man, I understand! Mucking about the innards of your phone requires patience, from a bunch of people who want desperately for their tinkering to work....NOW! Waiting has saved me $100's in hardware/insurance claims.....Probably a lot more.....
