Shape Shifter ROM
*Flash Under Your Responsibility*

**Do NOT make any mirrors. We can manage that ourselves just fine**






IV. Installation guide

IMPORTANT
  • - You cannot use this ShapeShifterROM alone, or you will end up with a black screen. If you don't have a Launcher and a Keyboard (At least), that to be flashed after flashing ShapShifterROM, you will have to flash one of the packs in the 2nd post.

It's reccomended to use the TWRP recovery and the latest Bootloader and Modem version.


N910F users:
Use this bootloader and this modem

Multi CSC
Multi CSC, How to change it? How to Check it?...

The ROM has an extended CSC Package as the list below:
  • ATO
  • AUT
  • BAL
  • BTU
  • CYO
  • DBT
  • ETL
  • EUR
  • ILO
  • ITV
  • LUX
  • MEO
  • MET
  • NEE
  • ORX
  • PHE
  • PHN
  • ROM
  • SEE
  • SIO
  • TPH
  • XEF
  • XEH
  • XEO




How can I check my current CSC?

Install Phone INFO app from Play Store and check your CSC. If you are using stock ROM and everything is ok with your CSC - all CSC fields in Phone Info app should display the same CSC, as below (otherwise, you probably forgot about wipe data when you were installing ROM with another CSC).






How can I check my current CSC?

Q: Recently I tested several ROMs, in result of it my CSC has changed. I would like to flash your ROM, but first I want to restore my country's original CSC. What should I do?[list][*]Case 1: Your country's original CSC is available in Shape Shifter ROM.
No special/additional steps are needed. Just flash the ROM with edited options.prop file placed on internal sdcard or extSdCard -> type CSC=[your_csc] instead of CSC=KCSC. Remember to perform "Wipe data" in the recovery before install. Note that sometimes additional reboot is required after completing pre-configuration steps to display your CSC correctly in Phone Info app).
[*]Case 2: Your country's original CSC is not available in Shape Shifter ROM. Your original ROM contains single CSC pack (omitting parts with model name and incremental version - name of CSC package is same as product code = CSC)
Example:
Code:
Model: SM-N910F
Model name: GALAXY Note 4
Country: Montenegro
Version: Android 4.4.4
Changelist: 3311829
Build date: Mon, 17 Nov 2014 05:21:39 +0000
Product Code: TMT
PDA: N910FXXU1ANK4
CSC: N910FTMT1ANK1
MODEM: N910FXXU1ANK4
In this case you need to flash your original ROM using PC Odin, then perform wipe data using stock recovery and then check your CSC in Phone Info app (note that sometimes additional reboot is required after completing pre-configuration steps to display your CSC correctly in Phone Info app).

Now you can install Shape Shifter ROM - just leave "Keep current CSC" option untouched in /options.prop (it's good idea to perform "Wipe data" again from recovery to remove potential "garbage" from /data partition like e.g app data created by CSC bloatware and CSC bloatware updates).
[*]Case 3: Your country's original CSC is not available in Shape Shifter ROM. Your original ROM contains multi CSC pack (omitting parts with model name and incremental version - name of CSC package differs from product code and usually begins with the letter "O").
There is no good example for SM-N910C, As most of the CSC packages are available. However, I am going to put an example in theory what should you do in that case.
Code:
Model name: GALAXY Note 3 LTE
Country: Thailand
Version: Android 4.4.2
Changelist: 1955971
Build date: Wed, 25 Jun 2014 12:15:26 +0000
Product Code: THL
PDA: N9005XXUFNF4
CSC: N9005OLBFNG1
MODEM: N9005XXUFNF2
In this case you need to flash your original ROM using PC Odin or Mobile Odin PRO (see "NOTE" and "HINT" below to avoid problems), then perform wipe data using stock recovery and then check your CSC in Phone Info app (note that sometimes additional reboot is required after completing pre-configuration steps to display your CSC correctly in Phone Info app). Then becomes something strange - you will see that your CSC is XTC (Philippines) instead of THL (Thailand)! It's because XTC is the default CSC in OLB multi CSC package in case of flashing it on ROM with other than OLB CSC package. To change CSC to THL you need CSC Select app from Play Store (requires root and stock recovery to perform all operations correctly!). Then check your CSC again using Phone Info app - should be OK.

Now you can flash the multi CSC ROM - just choose "Keep current CSC" in options.prop (it's good idea to "Wipe data" again to remove from /data partition potential "garbage" like e.g app data created by CSC bloatware and CSC bloatware updates).


NOTE: Sometimes it's not possibe to flash your original stock ROM, e.g. in case you have already installed a major update, but it has not been released for your country yet. In such cases Samsung usually prevents downgrades - phone usually will not be able to boot after flashing or maybe you will not be able to flash it at all.

HINT: There is still a way to flash ROM with your CSC pack using Mobile Odin PRO. Just use "Open file..." option to load ANY stock ROM (*.tar.md5) available for your phone (not older than your current ROM base) AND THEN load using "Cache" / "Hidden" options following 2 files extracted from the latest ROM (containing YOUR CSC): cache.img.ext4, hidden.img.ext4 (you can use 7-zip to extract *.tar.md5 file). Then flash such "MIX" in one step using "Flash firmware" option in Mobile Odin PRO.

Hey guys

Been messing around with the SSrom. The Sony pack is giving me "Android.Proces.Stopped"
I did full wipe then tryed the packs 1 by 1 in different orders and with wipes in between.
And the Sony pack is the only one i have problems with. I havent tryed the note 4 pack though.
But i dont think i will need it.
Would be nice to get the sony pack up and running because i like the Walkman/Track id and Album apps....
But so far so good.. The SSrom is very fast btw.
