I was thinking about installing Lineage OS on my Samsung Galaxy S4 GT-I9515 (Value Edition) currently running Stock Android Version 5.0.1 without root.
Is the version of Lineage OS and TWRP I found at https://forum.xda-developers.com/gal...i9515-t3534552 appropriate for that purpose?
Now, my confusion arises from the fact that different guides seem to give incomplete or even contradictory instructions on how to approach that. As a first step, I need to install a custom recovery, such as TWRP:
- Does this require my device to be rooted?
- Some guides apparently require my bootloader to be unlocked; Is this necessary? If so, how do I do that?
- Other guides suggest that I use Odin. Is this the correct approach? Does my bootloader need to be unlocked for that method? Is a root required?
- Anything else I should pay attention to?
Thank you very much in advance
