This is the second version of the Galaxy Mega 6.3 root solution.
It replaces the original rootable kernel.
This version comes with SuperSU 1.41 preinstalled and the su and busybox pathes have been changed to achieve better compatibility with some root applications.

The vcoreroot-v2.tar file can be flashed with Odin as PDA.
Keep Auto Reboot and F.Reset Time selected.

Use at your own risk, I'm not responsible for bricking your device.

Download: vcoreroot-v2.tar

Please click Thanks if you found this helpful.

Will this improve the root of devices rooted using the previous method? Or will this do the same thing? Can we redo the process?

It basically does the same thing. It's just more compatible with some apps like the Multi Window Manager and SuperSU is preinstalled.

I see. I don't have any compatibility problems at the moment with the old method so I'll pass. Thanks for the hard work

To completely unroot the device you have to uninstall SuperSU before re-flashing the device with the original ROM.
SuperSU can be uninstalled via the SuperSU settings menu.

Hi VCore

The Odin v3.07 works well for kernel's. To flash a new Stock Rom is all compatible and safe on i9205?
For example, the LTE modem have a size about 48 MB and is on 3 partitions like this:

rwxrwxrwx root root 2013-01-01 02:26 modem -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
lrwxrwxrwx root root 2013-01-01 02:26 modemst1 -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p11
lrwxrwxrwx root root 2013-01-01 02:26 modemst2 -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p12

It will be good on Odin?
What do You think?

Valente

You can flash the vcoreroot-v2.tar boot image with Odin v3.07.
It is confirmed to work on GT-I9205 and GT-I9200 devices and includes the LTE driver.
LTE will of course be ignored on the GT-I9200.

Works but with the two red lines at boot... don't know if that's a problem though.

Keep the good work up!
