Absolutely. I just arrived at work or I would post a full detailed guide, but here's the run down.

You have to downgrade from 5.0 (OC1) to 4.2.2 (NC2).

Once you've done that, root with towelroot.apk, install SuperSU (I prefer chainfire), then install Busybox, (I prefer Stephan Erickson) and then finally, install Safestrap Recovery V3.75.

Then boot into Safestrap recovery, wipe/factory reset, and then flash the ROM you want.

I would gladly post links to everything but as I said, I'm at work. If nobody else does before I clock out. I'll definitely help you out.

Sorry guys work got the best of me. I just got permission from a couple of developers to re-do a thread that elaborates more into how to root, flash etc. So that will be up by the end of the week (hopefully). My method I will be posting is completely different than what I'm telling you here. Because my guide will let you flash an a single file using flashfire that will already have root, xposed, viper audio, + extras already installed and configured. What I'm posting below is the main method being used.

In the mean time:

Download and install Samsung Mobile Drivers http://developer.samsung.com/technic...o?v=T000000117, Reboot before connecting your phone.

Download https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95784891001615211 - This is a stock NC2 (Android 4.4.2) image you will flash to down grade from 5.0. (Temporarily).

Download Towelroot https://towelroot.com/tr.apk - This is towelroot, it exploits a vulnerability in android 4.4.2 that allows you to gain root without even rebooting your phone.

Download SuperSU https://download.chainfire.eu/696/Su...etrieve_file=1 - You can of course user any superuser app. I am personally a big supporter of Chainfire and his applications.

Download Safestrap Safestrap-KLTEVZW-NCG-3.75-B03.apk http://forum.xda-developers.com/devd...4718#downloads - This will be your recovery.

Download Odin http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2711451 Make sure it's version 3.10.0 and only download odin from that post please. There are obnoxious amounts of fake odin downloads that come up in a google search that may contain malicious code.

Don't forget Busybox https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....busybox&hl=en

Also download any ROM you want to flash, BEFORE doing this. Unless of course you want to stay on rooted 4.2.2

----
0. Backup. Back up everything.

1. Place Towelroot, SuperSU, Safestrap, and Busybox on your SD card.

2. Bring your phone into download mode. (Power Button+Volume Down+Home Button)

3. Connect your phone to your computer using usb. (Back of the computer usb is always better)
-Make sure you installed the Samsung Drivers

4. Bring up odin and place N900AUCUCNC2_Full_Odin_Tar.tar.md5 file in the AP slot. (Odin might hangup and freeze for a minute. It's normal, don't click or do anything, just wait.)

5. Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time on odin should already be checked. Just make sure.

6. Under ID:COM on odin, it should read 0:[COM4] in light-ish blue color.

7. Odins message should read <ID:0/004> Added!!
--Numbers might be different for each person.

8. Click Start and wait a while. After 15-20 minutes your phone will eventually boot into Android 4.4.2

And in this exact order:

9. Install Towelroot and click 'make it rain'

10. Install SuperSU, Be sure to disable knox when it asks. If it hangs at all just force close SuperSU and try again.

11. Install Busybox

12. Install Safestrap

Done.

When you want to flash a ROM simply place it on your SD card and flash it using Safestrap. Make sure when flashing that the ROM comes with the OC1 kernel. If it doesn't you'll need to flash it after flashing the ROM.

As I said above I'm going to be posting an entire thread this week dedicated to rooting, flashing, and working with this phone. It's going to have the most updated information that I have and an easier and quicker method that doesn't require Safestrap. I'm going to ask mods and hopefully it will get a sticky.

Quick question phlashb4k, the first step in your guide ( 1. Place Towelroot, SuperSU, Safestrap, and Busybox on your SD card.), the link you posted for busybox is for the play store app. Is there a zip file for it elsewhere. I can`t download the app to my sd card.. Could I install it from the play store after I`ve downgraded from 5.0 to 4.4.2? I`ve searched this site and googled for a while and I still cant do it. Everything else is ready ready to go. Thanks in advance.

Safestrap
Without question Safestrap is the biggest problem for me
The newer version B03 would not boot to recovery
I had to go back to B01

---------- Post added at 08:01 AM ---------- Previous post was at 07:37 AM ----------

Upon boot it installs 262 "updates" fro AT&T

Using the rooted file from
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...58&postcount=2

Last time it sent me into a boot loop after the updates.
I did get it to run for a while.

Trying the complete stagefright fix also
Which I can't seem to find the link to right this instant.

Constantly get
Unfortunately, the process
com.google.process.gaaps has stopped errors
Thought I had it fixed at one pint but it is a problem again.

this seems to help

Yes you can install directly from the Playstore or flash a zip file. Either works just fine as long as everything is installed in the correct order you'll be good to go. Allow me a bit and I can upload the .apk directly to my google drive account and provide a link. You could really download SuperSU and Busybox from the Playstore if you wanted to. It just takes a bit longer.

Of course. After you downgrade you then have access to Safestrap, which is a custom recovery environment you use to flash ROMs with. (Almost) every ROM for our phones already have SuperSU installed, if it doesn't it will specify in the thread that you need to flash SuperSU using Safestrap. But there's only a few that require it. Most of them already include the OC1 kernel inside the ROM as well. (OC1 is the only kernel that will run 5.0 on our phones).

working on it.

If the following doesn't help please explain your problem in a little more detail for me, write out each step you are doing and I will try to see which might be causing the issue.

Safestrap is very touchy and actually isn't compatible with 5.0 (OC1). To boot into Safestrap after flashing 5.0, if you want to do a backup (which I wouldn't recommend with safestrap, I've personally only had bad luck) you need to either flash the NC2 kernel with odin, or download and install http://forum.xda-developers.com/note...nsafe-t2989141. I suggest downloading the .apk. All you do is flash the NC2 kernel with the flasher app and it will automatically boot you into safestrap. After you do whatever it is you need to do, (flash patches, etc) you then flash the OC1 kernel and reboot. OC1 kernel can be found here: https://mega.co.nz/#!fAcA3JhL!-hK_TU...xSL70VgC4sILwc

To fix your Playstore issue, remove any Playstore updates you have, then download and install the latest version from here: https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...le-play-store/
