Then add su like you did originally. Then install twrp.
Sorry for digging up that old post.
I now have a little spare time and i'm thinking about actually trying this.
Just wanted to make sure that there hasn't been some recent developments that could make life easier for me?
Also in case I still have to do above mentioned steps I have a few questions:
- The full 5.0.5 update package means the original one from amazon?
- along with all the other firmware and kernel: where do i get them or which files are needed exactly?
I am familiar with linux, dd, su and other stuff, but not too familiar with all the low level stuff. Thanks a lot for taking time for not only developing all this stuff but also to reply to us fellas, rbox!
Edit: NVM, with the help of elias from AFTVNews i was able to manually push the update to SW version 5.0.5, root it with KingRoot, Factory reset and flash your latest twrp and prerooted rom.
Thanks for all your effort to build twrp and the roms!
