Currently this works only on SM-A500FU, but there are plans on creating a common Samsung MSM8916 repository and add support for other variants or even other Samsung MSM8916 devices.
If you want to (read: can) help adding support for other variants, send me a PM or better e-mail.

The only requirements are that you:
  1. Have time to test
  2. Know how to take a logcat / kmsg ( = use ADB in general)
