Default [STOCK][C68XX][4.3] Update to 14.2.A.1.136 [Root & XZDR][LB/UB][DE-/ODEX]


Requirements:
Special features:
In the following guide I suggest you use an external SDCard but that's just good practice, you can use your internal storage or even an USB OTG storage device in TWRP if you like to install, that's no problem!... If you are modding and the likes, best is to have an external sdcard, just for safeties sake.

If you are unable to download torrent files directly, have http://zbigz.com/ do it for you!

How to update to 14.2.A.1.136:
  1. Files (Find the files in the DevDB Downloads tab!):
    • For C6802: Download C6802_14.2.A.1.136.flashable.zip (865MB) and C6802_14.2.A.1.136_Stripped.ftf (21MB)
    • For C6806: Download C6806_14.2.A.1.136.flashable.zip (838MB) and C6806_14.2.A.1.136_Stripped.ftf (21MB)
    • For C6833: Download C6833_14.2.A.1.136.flashable.zip (826MB) and C6833_14.2.A.1.136_Stripped.ftf (21MB)
    • For C6843: Download C6843_14.2.A.1.136.flashable.zip (871MB) and C6843_14.2.A.1.136_Stripped.ftf (21MB)
    Save them somewhere you remember;
  2. Put 'C68XX_14.2.A.1.136.flashable.zip' on (the external) SDcard1;
  3. Put 'C68XX_14.2.A.1.136_Stripped.ftf' inside the Flashtool/firmwares folder;
  4. Create a backup of your phone in TWRP and don't forget to backup the contents of 'SDCard' (the internal storage!);
  5. Flash 'C68XX_14.2.A.1.136.flashable.zip' in TWRP;
    NOTE: do not reboot but go back to the main menu, then go to reboot->power off;
  6. Flash everything in 'C68XX_14.2.A.1.136_Stripped.ftf' using flashtool;
  7. Reboot to system.

The first boot will be slow and after some time at the boot animation you will see Android start optimizing the apps on your phone.

Enjoy!

Known XZDualRecovery Issues:
Busybox Updater/Installer: If you have XZDualRecovery installed, un-install any Busybox updating app/tool as most if not all of them will install a version of busybox which does not support the lzma compression applets XZDualRecovery depends on. The version installed together with XZDualRecovery is very stable and I have yet to hear anyone complain about it's stability.

How to report errors:
Please, before shouting out "It doesn't work!!1!" or "I lost root!" or even "My phone reboots when remounting /system RW!!" try the following:
  • Restore any JB 4.2.2 FTF using any means you are familiar with so you can try again.
  • Root it using any means you are familiar with.
  • Install XZDualRecovery;
  • Update to 14.2.A.0.290;
  • Then try to update again using TWRP.
  • If it still fails something from there on: LOGS!!.
    NOTE: The important ones can be found in /cache/recovery and in /sdcard1/XZDualRecovery, pack them up and send them to me or attach them to your bug report.

Thank you

Default Tips and Tricks

Easy switching between locked and unlocked bootloader states!
NOTE: USE TWRP ONLY for this guide.
NOTE 2: You NEED to have XZDualRecovery 2.7.43 or higher to make this work.
  • Create a backup, including the Trim Area (TA!)
  • Unlock your bootloader
  • Restore backup without TA
  • Create a new backup of your UNLOCKED TA
  • Restore the previous TA backup to relock your phone.

Done

Now you can switch between locked and unlocked bootloaders quick and painless: no more system wipes and you can basically do whatever you want

How to enable init.d support:
Open a filemanager app and navigate to the location where the XZDualRecovery folder is located and go in to it. Open XZDR.prop as a text file and set dr.initd.active to true.

NOTE: For this ROM it means the init.d script called 99SuperSUDaemon will kick in to action, so it's best to disable (by setting chmod 644) /system/etc/install-recovery.sh for the time being or to clear it's contents.

Done

Downgrading to a 4.2 ROM:
Download C6833_14.1.B.1.532_[NUT].ftf (Bittorrent: 760MB) and flash it using FlashTool. I've also added the FTF to the downloads page on the DevDB tab, this will allow straight downloads as well.

This FTF will allow you to downgrade to .532 without loss of your IMEI

Excellent work [NUT]. Works great! Thanks also to Jackie (thread on general forum), blueether for guides to get to rooted 4.3 and NUT's 532 for the C6833. All super work, not to forget to mention so many others (LordManhattan), hamdogg etc.

Used the Xperia xposed apk someone posted forget where and got the extended power menu module loaded and working.

Guessing this is safe as well for 6802 right?

I have no idea to be honest... But why not try it?

I'll release the C6802 version ASAP though, waiting for a ftf to surface...

It will work fine, I'm using the 136 ftf for c6833 on my C6802.

The phone will think it is a c6833 with lte options etc
