T999 JB 4.3 update - UVUENC2 Firmware

Samsung And T-Mobile have released the next update UVUENC2 for SGH-T999.

EDIT - @mrRobinson has a Root66 version of UVUENC2. That version is KNOX Free. So my recommendation is to visit his thread and using that firmware instead.

WARNING - The following steps are only for those who had accepted the previous 4.3 Update UVUEMJC or flashed it from Root66 thread.

Essentially with the newer updates to the Odin, version 3.09 makes the process pretty easy to those who are familiar. This does work even if you have custom Rom and Custom Recovery. Both of which will be destructively replaced by the new firmware. So take a Nandroid!!! Those with Stock firmware UVUEMJC, please take a Titanium Backup of all the essential stuff to external SD. You have been warned.

1. Obtain the Stock update UVUENC2 from SamMobile Link.
2. Download the CF-AutoRoot zip file for D2TMO by @Chainfire.
3. Obtain Odin 3.09 from here. Do not run Odin.
4. Take a backup of important stuff and put the phone in Download Mode.
5. Connect the phone to the PC and let the drivers install if not installed already.
6. Execute Odin as System Admin and then choose the Stock Firmware as AP (AKA PDA in prior versions).
7. Make sure F. Reset Time Option is Checked but Auto Reboot option is unchecked.
8. Complete the Odin flash process.
9 Once that's successful, make sure the phone is still in Download mode.
10. Again Click AP (AKA PDA) and choose the CF-AutoRoot zip previously downloaded.
11. Make sure F. Reset Time Option is Checked but Auto Reboot option is unchecked.
12. Complete the Odin Flash process.
13. When it is successful, Disconncect the phone and pull the Battery. Boot the phone to Stock Recovery and wipe Cache as well as Dalvik if there's an option for Dalvik. (My Phone does not have stock so don't remember)
14. Let the phone boot normally and enjoy Rooted Stock update. Profit !

You can use Root Checker App from Play store to confirm Root. If for some reason it failed, update the binaries of the Super user app. Upon launching that app, it may prompt for the same.

Any chance we can get the boot.img or a flashable UVUENC2 kernel file? Some of us are having issues with wifi and it might be bc of the conflicting MJC kernel and NC2 modem

Care to try this out for me?
It's the UVUENC2 boot.img & kernel modules: [REMOVED FOR NOW]
EDIT: This one works: modified UVUENC boot.img

Totally agree

Is very frustrating dont have ROOT on T999UVUENC2.

My T999 was updated from 4.1.2 to 4.3 T999UVUENC2 directly and was a big mistake I alredy loose my root and cant instal CM11 by any way since I cant disable KNOX.

Heeeelp

Okay so first of all the zip file gave me an assert failed (error 7, something about writing raw file to block7) but i got round that. Second of all wifi works like a charm now but, third of all, SELinux is set to enforcing instead of permissive.

Care for a fix? haha

I'll check it out. I basically just merged a 4.3 TW install script with what I use for harkness, didn't test since I tend to stick to aosp. I think I might know what I forgot to change though. Would you mind telling me the last thing the installer says (I.e. "installing modules..."), just to help me be sure?
