[Q] sgh i337m can't install any custom rom
Normally I take for granted that the answer is out there in a forum or some tech blog. I've looked everywhere and unfortunately every guide I followed or Google combination I've tried didn't help.
Just can't get any custom rom to install and boot up, they all hang at the Samsung logo with text in the upper right corner telling me the kernel isn't senforcing.
I have a sgh i337m, it's an mk6 build number if that helps. Currently on stock 4.3 and rooted using saferoot. My carrier is telus and the phone is Sim locked still (is that the issue?)
I have twrp 2.6.1 installed and have flashed multiple roms for the jfltecan which I trust is the right model I need based on goo.manager
I've tried cm11, cm10, gummyrom for 4.4.2, omnirom also for 4.4.2 and they all hang at the splash screen. My method for flash is based on the ultimate guide that is stickied which is to wipe system, data and both the caches. Then flash the zip and the gaaps. I even tried the lokidoki zip in other combinations
Then I tried using cwmod recovery thinking perhaps it is twrp's fault and got the same hanging at the splash screen
I'm now just back to rooted stock 4.3 after restoring my nandroid
Any insights out there that can be deciphered from my rambling would be very much appreciated!!! Frustrated as hell. My nexus 7 was such a breeze and did not expect this to happen on my s4.
