[ FAQs ]
================================================== ==
Q1 : How to increase the abnormal limitness of volume of earpieces?
A :

http://koganefusube.blog.me/70167096326

SGS4 in South Korea has Yamaha's sound codec(YMU831) and the parameters of all of the volumes can adjustable in rom.
/system/etc/ysound.xml does, and I found that the stock values of them limited in 81.
I just changed from 81 to 100 and tested on my sgs4.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Q2 : What recovery can I use?
A :

You can use recoveries for i9500(not 9505) to E300S, E300K(I can't sure for E300L but if you know clearly plz post that)
Now I'm using Chenglu's touch CWM 6.0.2.3 and flashing update.zip and making/restoring CWM backups are working fine.
Chenglu's recovery => http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2267820

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Q3 : How to set the wallpaper in the full resolution without the notification bar?
A :

http://koganefusube.blog.me/70167678454
A way to solve this is editing stock sammy wallpaper application.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Q4 : How to root?
A :

1. Change your recovery be CWMed.
Like uppon FAQ, I suggest you Chenglu's CWM Recovery.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2267820

2. Download SuperSU v1.32
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1538053

3. Reboot into recovery mode(VolUP + Power + Home button for few seconds)

4. Flash SuperSU v1.32 you downloaded.

5. Reboot your phone.

6. Enjoy

In 20130519, phyb the developer in matcl announced his work. Thx to him if you want and helped by for your geeky smartphone life

※ You'll meet an error if you disabled and re-enabled su via SuperSU. If you do that, a way to reroot as flawless is just rebooting your sgs4. Then, SuperSU will work fine.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Q5 : What EQ or audio effect can I use? Stock MusicFX is boring and useless
A :

I suggest you 'ViPER4Android' if you got root your SGS4.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2191223
I tested and applied flawless on my SHV-E300S.

It's funtionality is awesome and better than MusicFX or any EQ apps which doesn't require root permissions.

※ Note : Be sure CWM backup first for something unpredicatable situations, and some of functions in this mod consumes battery and system resources much than before you applied.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Q6 : I can't access the hidden modes from inputting 319712358 via dial pad to change the settings about RIL
A :

E300S can access skt hidden mode with 'skt hidden mode +'. You can search it on Google Play.
I don't know about other ones(sorry) but if you know about the another way like this post the reply anytime

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Q7 : I want to hide the suggested application list when I plug my earbirds at my sgs4. How can I?
A :

Unfortunately, SGS4 doens't have the setting UI about PageBuddy unlike previous sammy android smartphones
So if you want to do that, debloat all of the apps about PageBuddy.

(Or maybe just disable PageBuddyNotiSvc in Settings? I can't sure about this... if someone try and this is the way what I meant, post the reply anytime )

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Q8 : My sgs4 mobile data connection looks slow even if I connected in LTE. What should I do to be better?
A :

Disable fast dormacy and disable geltle fair sleeper.

You can use gokhanmoral's FastDormacy toggle in SGS4 to disable fasl dormacy
and you can disable gentle fair sleeper with inputting a line in terminal.
( echo "NO_GENTLE_FAIR_SLEEPERS" > /d/sched_features )
You can apply this code as init.d script or any apps doing like this

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Q9 : I want to change the color of notification bar and panel. What should I do?
A :

Install Xposed Framework and Nottach Xposed.
Xposed Framework : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1574401
Nottach Xposed : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2285074

Note : Nottach Xposed is not for SGS4 in Korea as official so if you meet any bugs in use, that's not a bug. Just not fit for.
Note : Don't change the battery icon. If you do that, Nottach Xposed will be applied as abnormal.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Q10 : Default background of Holo UI looks not fit for XXHDPI(FHD). Can I change it?
A :

Install Xposed Framework and DitheredHoloBackground
and use the app what I uploaded in this thread.

DitheredHoloBackground : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2173001

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Q11 : How to remove the carrier logo on the status bar with editing SystemUI.apk?
A :

1) Open the SystemUI.apk with Alzip
2) Go to res\drawble-xxhdpi and change tw_stat_notify_operator_logo.png into a picture filled blank with overwriting that file.
I attached an image file to change.
Note : If you just delete this image file in SystemUI.apk you want to edit and reboot after paste this, you'll be under endless reboot.
3) Paste the SystemUI.apk into your phone and reboot

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Q12 : Is there a way to make a CWM backup and restore it as easy?
A :

You can use Online Nandroid Backup and Nandroid Manager,

You can make a CWM backup without rebooting into recovery via Online Nandroid Backup.
(Note : If you want to use this flawless, install busybox stericson's one)

You can restore a cwm backup and flashing 'update.zip's as you want as possible without rebooting into recoveryt via Nandroid Manager.

Not only bootloader but also the fixed kernel.
In other words, it doesn't on latest one.

Can someone please verify the exact steps on how to root SHV-E300s? I mean, do I need to install custom firmwares using Odin first before rooting, etc.

It's not only for me, but for others who have this device and want to root. And n00bs like me.

Hello marbulas,

Thank you for starting our S4 info and discussion thread.
I updated the root kernel supports init.d scripts an hour ago.

I think your scripts have been still the best in sgs2.

happy end of holidays
