Hi so I am a complete newbie I just joined today.

I am trying to get Cyanogenmod 11 for my Galaxy Player 4.0. I have never rooted or done any of this stuff.

I would like a step by step guide on how to flash, sorry if I am asking for too much I don't want to brick my player.

I downloaded the ZIP file but I don't know how to use it, I'm sorry I am a total newbie.

First you have to install terrasilent as you need CWM in order to flash CM for it. Here's it's link:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1643384

If you need a guide on how to flash, you can follow up this thread.


After you had succesfully flashed terrasilent, you need to put the zip file you downloaded into your device.

Then you need to turn off your device and pressing Power, Vol+ and Home. You will then go into CWM. When you're in CWM, you can follow up the actual CM11 instructions and you'll get safely in CM.

Sorry for the double post! But I have TerraSilent! This is all so new and exciting to me!

Was I just suppose to flash 1.3.5 or all of them? Sorry for being a noob..

I don't really have any important files, except pictures, and silly games, but what should I backup? And I how do I make the efs intact.

All your files except your games should be intact. If you want to backup them, use titanium backup to do so.

As for efs, it is something really important and you need to backup it. To do so, when you have terrasilent, (1.3.5) you need to do the command found on the cm11 thread while in superuser mode and using adb.

Here's the FAQ if you have some more questions related to root:

I'm NOT rooted, SO SORRY, my player is clean, the only thing it has on it is TerraSilent.

Could you also give a quick tutorial on rooting

How and where would I enter this command?
dd if=/dev/block/stl3 of=/sdcard/efs.rfs

Would any of these work for a quick root?

Hmm I think it'll be too long to download + set up ADB for the moment so I have another alternative.

First download this app:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...roidterm&hl=fr

After having downloaded it, go into the app. Type su and grant the super user permissions requested.

Then do the command to back your efs which is:

dd if=/dev/block/stl3 of=/sdcard/efs.rfs

It should backup your efs and you're good to go for CM11.
