Default [ROM]i545-VRUEMK2_Stock_Root_Deodex(12/22/13)

THIS IS ONLY FOR USERS ON MDK BOOTLOADER WITH CUSTOM RECOVERY (cwm or twrp)


NOT COMPATIBLE WITH SAFESTRAP. - however, jrkruse has built a MK2 rom with Aroma that allows installing without kernel.

THIS WILL NOT AFFECT BOOTLOADER OR MODEM AS THEY ARE NOT INCLUDED.

GENERAL DISCLAIMER : YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT YOU DO TO YOUR PHONE!

This is a stock rom based off the MK2.tar that Surge1223 put together. Thank him every chance you get (without it this wouldn't be possible). It's rooted, deodexed and I've removed all of the Knox garbage. I've included Talexop's stock insecure kernel, Surge1223's tether mod and swgamez's reboot menu.
If you want to update to the latest modem, it can be found here - [MODEM][Zip] Modems for Loki'd & Safestrap roms

Features:
Talexop v1.3 kernel - which can be found here
Pre-Rooted
Deodexed
Zipaligned
Busybox
Surge1223's tether mod
swgamez 4-way reboot menu

To install:
Must be on SCH-i545 VZW S4

Must be on MDK bootloader and have custom recovery (cwm or twrp).

Wipe cache, dalvik cache and data. (If you choose to "dirty flash", don't bring up any problems here).

When rebooting from recovery, it will ask if you want to "Disable Recovery Flash". Always choose "NO".

Download:

I545VRUEMK2_STOCK_ROOT_DEODEX.zip
md5: ce8b7742bd80c445581e2894d1b7ea91



Thanks:
Surge1223 - for the .tar file and tether mod
Dsixda - for the kitchen (that makes it so much easier on us noobs)
talexop - for the awsome kernel
scrosler - for his great tutorial on building a rom from a .tar
djrbliss - for the loki method
ChainFire - for SuperSU
jrkruse - for the root method

I've been curious about what it was like myself. Run CM daily but still always like to see what's new in the updates.

Thanks so much for putting this out. I've been waiting for an MK2 rom to fix issues with my car charger. Hopefully this does the trick!

I'm not sure this is still going to have that fix. I believe those changes were in the kernel and I'm using talexop's kernel. One of these days I'll be able to repack a stock kernel and get it to boot.

Oh no!

Whats the issue with getting the MK2 kernel to boot? Is it related to KNOX? I thought all 4.3 updates were KNOX patched, but all of that security had been cracked already as far as roms are concerned?
