Info 2 [ROOT][GUIDE]SGS4[I9506-E330s][DOWNLOAD][4.4.2 SUPPORT]


Please read the guides below before asking questions


================================================== ================================================== ====================



This CWM and Root Method is tested from many users and at least by me on this devices GT-I9506 and SHV-E330S!!




================================================== ================================================== ====================




USE THIS GUIDE WHEN YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DO AND YOU DONT CARE ABOUT KNOX WARRANTY 0x1b !!!

IF YOU DONT WANT TO VOID YOUR KNOX WARRANTY STOP READING THE TEXT BELOW AND GO OUT OF THIS THREAD..... Thanks !!!





================================================== ================================================== ====================



Quote:

----- SHORT DECLARATION - ODIN3 -----


PDA refers to the build version of the firmware

Phone refers to the baseband/modem version

CSC is the consumer software customisation and is specific to geographical region and carriers. It contains the software packages specific to that region, carrier branding and also APN settings for data connection, MMS etc for your service provider.

CSC has nothing to do with what languages the firmware supports and it will not add keyboard language support either.

.PIT refers to the partition information table you only need it if you screw up your partition table or if the firmware specifically requires it because of a change in the partition table layout. It's very likely you may never have to use this.

If the package only contains one .tar archive then it will have everything, pda+phone+csc, in the one file.

If it has multiple .tar archive then:
• The .tar with modem in the name is the phone/baseband bit of the package
• .tar with csc/multi-csc in the name is the csc bit of the package
• .tar with code/PDA in the name is the PDA part of the firmware package

If this is the case you will need to put these .tar archives in the specific areas of Odin to flash the update
Quote:


Get -->Odin3<-- Just extract Odin folder and keep the odin3.ini file in it.

I use v1.85 in this guide you can use also the latest version... it doesnt matter.



Quote:

----- FLASHING WITH ODIN3 v1.85 -----


Quote:

1. Just download the CWM version you want from the 2nd post. It must be a .tar or .tar.md5 file!!

2. Reboot your phone to download mode.

To get download mode shut down the device. After it shuts off completely simultaneously press the Down volume key + press the power button .

You should see a warning asking you to press volume up if you want to continue or volume down to cancel, press volume up. You are now in download mode!

3. Start Odin

4. Click on the PDA button and browse to the .tar or .tar.md5 file that you downloaded in step 1

5. PLEASE DO NOT PUT .PIT FILE AND DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT TICK REPARTITION!!!

6. Connect the USB cable and wait for the ID:COM section to turn yellow

Should look like this screenshot:




7. Click start to flash

8. Do not disconnect the cable or turn off the device, it will reboot when it finishes.

-- ROOT METHOD SGS4 I9506 + E330S --

Quote:
The following root file was made for the E330S and works also on I9506.

The only difference to the original file is that i changed the Korean superSU.apk with the International free superSU.apk from great Chainfireīs thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1538053

5. After device completely OFF - Enter Recovery

Thanks xenix96!
If it wasn't for you I would still be with a castrated beast.

I just want to ask if this custom version of Phil's Touch has less features compared to the common one we all know?
Otherwise I will have to install the CWM, but I don't like it.

Yeah I choosed the same.

I only suggest you to add at step #6 of the flashing tut the link to the Samsung USB drivers as it's a common thing people might forget to install and therefore the device wouldn't be detected when connecting by USB.

Now thanks to you I can finally back everything up with Titanium and flash another ROM (the NEE one)!
Remember to setup a Beer button so that we can offer you one.

on this currently thread i thought everyone knows that we need driver to communicate with device....

but your 100% right i have to explain that for those who dont know that.

so i will add this evening

i got a beer button under my avatar but for that you guys dont need do anything.

spare your beers for real developer !!!

i hope we get some devs for this device
