while the cf autoroot thread and also the older recovery thread gets some questions that don't have anything to do with the thread I make this thread



OK...here it is: only for people with 5.1.1 G925F (should work with 5.0.2 F also) the G925I seems also fine

be sure to copy my kernel zip and also the super su zip to sdcard (phone) before you flash the recovery via odin, otherwise you got bootloop (because of system write protection-new with 5.1.1)


Kernel (flash with twrp) : https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24052804347765201

Super SU (flash with twrp) : https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24052804347765203

and TWRP 2.8.7.1 (flash with ODIN) : https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24052804347765202

after all that you get the normal system warning (the old one also on 5.0.2) delete Securitylogagent and reboot

have fun

kernel source from my kernel will come if I'm back from holidays 😊

some more things to know



you should have a g925F

1. copy kernel and super su zip to sd card
2. flash recovery with odin (ap) (set dont reboot in odin) (go into download mode)
3. manual reboot with vol down home and power...you will see the download mode again...but press cancel....in the time of reboot press vol up + power + home..you will get into recovery...now flash both zips
4. done

if something wrong flash your firmware again (if theres a problem by fail ...blocked by rl ..simply deactivte reactivation lock in samsung account)

if you are on 5.0.2 you need only the recovery and that should work..yes but not sure about your version i the kernel source i compiled is for f.. so maybe try it..but have the older version to flash it back if there's a problem..
