Odin back to stock MK1. You can get it here http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=SPH-L600
Flash Philz recovery http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2588661 (Use the ODIN flashable) (meliusltexx)
Root via this method using Kingo http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2527473
Use Root checker to verify you are rooted. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...krim.rootcheck
Once you are rooted then flash this ROM and you should be good to go. I used this method and I have zero issues.
I couldn't get the Kingo root to work. I think those who were successful did so before the current firmware. I'm going to redo this as I returned to "squeaky clean" today so that I could take my phone in to be checked for hardware issues(there were none,) but there ARE major issues with the network in my area, West Palm. The tech said, support is recommending users leave phone on CDMA--really!?!?!
Correct me if I am mistaken, but if you flash the Philz recovery in Odin, then select reboot system, it asks you if you want to root the device, and and you just say yes. Voila, you have root. Verify with any root checker app. I will do this again shortly and verify that is the way it worked.
OK, this is about as straightforward as it gets: Download Philz Touch( it is linked several places here.) Put phone in download mode( home+power+volume down.) Open Odin, connect phone to PC. Odin should recognize phone in the com section in upper left corner. Select the PDA tab on the right and browse to the recovery you downloaded earlier. In the lower left Odin will give info about the recovery file( if it says MD5 is invalid, your download is likely corrupt, re-download it.) If the file is valid, simply hit the start button and Odin will flash the recovery. Odin will auto-reboot the system. Turn phone off. Boot into recovery(home+power+volume up,) to verify that Philz is in fact installed. One the recovery loads, hit restart system, and the recovery will offer to root the device. Select yes. Restart system. Verify root with root checker.
Does this work with the latest firmware? Because I know a way to root is return to the previous firmware and root oonpnce rooted start downloading the update FIRST and then while its downloading use ota root keeper and enable it make sure to do that while the updatie is downloading otherwise it will say you have a modified system and can't let you check for updates
