Default [TOOL] Deadly Venom KitKat Magic Tool (Install 4.4.2 Roms) Now easier with SS 3.72 KK

Since 4.4.2 NB1 was released, those with locked bootloaders have been stuck with either upgrading to NB1 and losing root and Safestrap,or remaining on 4.3 MK2 and missing out on the upgrade fun. Well, this is a solution for both instances. I was made aware of a process the Note 3 was using to upgrade to 4.4.2 rooted roms with the existing version of Safestrap. After some study and alot of building, testing and modification, it is all ready.

It is called Deadly Venom KitKat Magic Tool


Disclaimer: You are trying this on your own free will. This process can be potentially damaging to your device if done carelessly or incorrectly. The risk is all yours.


Version 1 is for those that already took the NB1 update.

First, follow the thread here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2663545 to revert your system back to MK2. You can then root, and install Safestrap. Be sure to hit thanks on @ted77usa post.

Downloads

Nb1-Safestrap Kit- http://d-h.st/p12

Safestrap 3.72 beta-- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=45693712

Download all files, and extract them somewhere on your desktop.

Download a pre-rooted 4.4.2 rom (SEE POST #2 FOR COMPATIBLE ROMS and place on your external sd.

Reboot into SS, and wipe all except external sd. Install your pre-rooted 4.4.2 rom, and flash nb1 modules. Tap "Home". Enter reboot menu, and choose download.

Now open Odin on your pc, and add the NB1 tar files ap>>ap bl>>bl cp>>cp. Hit start. Once finished, it will reboot, You should now boot into a rooted 4.4.2 KK rom.

NOTE- Once 4.4.2 is installed, download Safestrap 3.72. Install and open. Uninstall recovery, and then install recovery. Your SS is now compatible with 4.4.2. The only time you will need the mk2 files beyond this is when reverting to an mk2 system.

If you are already on an existing 4.4.2 rom, then uninstall 3.71 Safestrap app, and install 3.72 beta. Open, uninstall recovery, and then install recovery. Safestrap is now updated on your system.

Version 2 is for those that DID NOT take the NB1 update, and are still on a full MK2

Downloads

MLD/MK2-safestrap kit- http://d-h.st/LyA

Download all files, and extract them somewhere on your desktop.

Safestrap 3.72-- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=45693712

Download a pre-rooted 4.4.2 rom (SEE POST #2 FOR COMPATIBLE ROMS and place on your external sd.

Reboot into SS, and wipe all except external sd. Install your pre-rooted 4.4.2 rom, and flash mld modules. Tap "Home". Enter reboot menu, and choose download.

Now open Odin on your pc, and add the MLD tar files ap>>ap bl>>bl cp>>cp. Hit start. Once finished, it will reboot, You should now boot into a rooted 4.4.2 KK rom.

NOTE- Once 4.4.2 is installed, download Safestrap 3.72. Install and open. Uninstall recovery, and then install recovery. Your SS is now compatible with 4.4.2. The only time you will need the mk2 files beyond this is when reverting to an mk2 system.

If you are already on an existing 4.4.2 rom, then uninstall 3.71 Safestrap app, and install 3.72 beta. Open, uninstall recovery, and then install recovery. Safestrap is now updated on your system.


After flashing the MLD or NB1 modules, it will say there is no system installed when trying to reboot from safestrap. Dont worry about it, it will boot fine.



Thanks: @ted77usa - Lots of encouragement, ideas and help. @Venom0642 - For a great Venom Rom to test with! @jeboo - Helped out with bypasslkm, which got us through while working on this @muniz_ri for the full Odin nb1 files
@Surge1223 -Great advice @Hashcode - For the amazing SafeStrap @Maribou - Tester @dave5777 - Tester @John The Rhino -Tester @pendragon11 - Tester @aasanders617 - For pointing me to the note 3 threads

Special extra thanks to @Hashcode for recognizing our progress and taking the time to provide the KK compatible Safestrap 3.72 beta. It makes flashing these roms SO much easier!!!

Deadly Venom KitKat Magic Tool All-In-One Files. For Odin and Heimdall

These are just the files @rebel1699 provided in the KKMT NB1 files folder.
Instead of them being split into multiple md5 files that needed to be put in multiple slots, I combined them all into a single md5 file, and a single tar.gz that can be put in the PDA slot in Odin, or loaded as a Heimdall firmware file.
The original md5 files were:
  • ap_nb1_test.tar.md5
  • bl_nb1_test.tar.md5
  • cp_nb1_test.tar.md5



Odin combined files can be found here

Heimdall combined files can be found here


Boot images for Odin [md5]

These are the extracted boot.img's from MK2 and NB1 in md5 format for Odin.

If I'm on MF3 will it still allow me to flash the 4.4.2 ROM or will I first have to upgrade to MK2?

Great work though!!

Your need to upgrade to MK2 first...

At this point MK2 is likely the better of the two (outside of the old Loki-compatible basebands) due to the larger number of ROM's and the kernel bypass that works because of Saferoot. Safestrap also works great on MK2, still no progress on the kexec that Hash is working on though.
My Devices
Samsung Galaxy S4 (SGH-I337)
  • ROM - Purified [4.4.2]
  • Baseband - MK2 (MLD)
  • Root - Yes
  • Recovery - SafeStrap 3.72

Enjoying my help? Feel free to help feed this broke college student.
