This project is discontinued. Please do not expect any replays from me in this thread. You may still use the attached files (if available) in your own risk. Thank you...

Most of the klte (SM-G900F) custom ROMs and Kernels are not suitable to Korean variants kltektt – kltelgt - klteskt (SM-G900K/L/S: called kltexxx from here onward) by default due to the significantly different device tree blob (dtb). We, a Facebook group of Korean galaxy S5 users, already made many klte ROMs and Kernels suitable to kltexxx by editing the boot.img according to my previous post. I am now posting a one step method via recovery flashing a simple zip file to update the dtb, which will virtually make any klte ROM/Kernel suitable to kltexxx. The original Kernel and Ramdisk will be retained after flashing this file.

/* Warning */
I am not responsible for any damage to your device. Everything you are doing on your mobile is on your own risk.
This method is only tested in kltexxx.
Please note that rooting and flashing custom recoveries/ROMs will void your warranty.

/* Requirements */
Rooted SM-G900S/K/L with a working custom recovery (TWRP for the klte variant is recommended. Please note that a recovery image of klte variant is necessary for flashing any custom ROMs originally developed for that model).
The device bootloader and modem should be compatible with the new ROM/Kernel.

/* Download */
Korean galaxy S5 dtb updater

/* How to */
1. Flash klte ROM/Kernel
2. Flash GAPPS (if needed)
3. Flash the above downloaded dtb updater
4. Wipe Cache/Dalvik Cache
5. Reboot and enjoy

/* Tested ROMs and Kernels */
List of tested ROMs and Kernels are available in the second post.

Absolutely Brilliant Flashed haggerts latest build 1022, with open gaps pico and your zip at the end .
CM14
Gapps
dtb.zip
install zip
Wipe dalvik/Cache
Reboot
Works perfectly.......Thank you very much.
Hmm, there are a few issues, with sound but unfortunately I dont have time to test them right now. Anyhow the Rom boots fine and it's looking very promising(and it's an Alpha ROM so no blame in any direction).
A superb zip that brings us into the flashing field

Continued testing haggert CM14
Problems encountered and fixed at install.
Adaway and Busybox will not install, anyone having this problem(on any model I suspect) can fix this by using Linux Mode Changer and set to permissive(set back to enforcing after installif you wish. Can be found here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2524485
Skype test call and phone works with speakers enabled. Skype has very low mic recording sound this can be fixed by installing fix from here(I used 11.7).

Problem with sound that I think only relates to this model and maybe the dtb.zip, there is no sound in earpiece unless you enable speakers also there is no media sound in speakers for instance youtube videos have no sound. I have attached three syslogs
1. skype testcall speakers off
2.skype testcall speakers on
3. skype testcall speakers on and soundfix installed.
syslog can be retrieved from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=377

Downloaded and installed CrDroid CM14 also built on 1022, Exactly the same Audio issue. The question is- is it an issue with the patch or is it an issue with CM14 on Korean phones?

sunilpaulmathew,
The roms that you list as tested, did you actually check audio on them or when it says tested it means boots with no obvious problem?

Thanks @thaidroid for testing the zip file... However, this zip file only ensure booting of klte ROMs on korean variants... and yes... I know about the audio bug... not only in cm, most of the klte ROMs results the same issue while using korean variants although we found fixes for some TW ROMs. Special patches might be needed to solve this issue (but I have no idea abt how to deal).

Edit: As I understand, from our experience to deal with this issue in cm-13.0, this is a kernel issue...

Well it cant be far away(he added with absolutely no clue)since Audio works in the earpiece and speakers when speakers are enabled but then we also need audio to work for other media like browser and Hello Google. On a side note I noticed another thing, when flashing your zip on CM14 klte all of a sudden 2G networks was enabled on the phone and working to I think.
