Thanks Rogersb11 and Cyril.

Mobile ODIN is saying no Super User permission. Super User is not working either. Perhaps I have lost root.

Downloaded the SlimSaber i777 4.4.2-20140605 and the Shift kernel today.

You're working with a fresh installation (which is good). Root access is disabled by default in Slim.

Enabling root access:
settings > developer options > root access

Choose your desired level of access ADB | Apps only | ADB only | Apps and ADB

If the immediate goal is to get a working recovery, the process is simpler:
  1. - Install Mobile Odin (and the i777-flash-kernel)
  2. - Use mobile odin to Install a known good kernel
  3. - reboot to recovery to verify that the process completed as expected

Your original flash order was correct, it just sounds as though you flashed a bad version of RB11's kernel. So grab a more recent version of the shift kernel, and try the process again.

I think I have bigger problem. Mobile ODIN will not read Zip. So I converted the latest Shift Slim Kernel to a tar.md.5 file. Mobile ODIN reports "Partition could not be found in file". Will try with Desktop ODIN will report result. The phone works fine otherwise except for the fact no Google Play 'cause the dummy me flashed the wrong GaPPs. :{

I just tried it, and I cannot get mobile odin to read a .zip file either (I remember that it did, but perhaps I'm simply remembering incorrectly).

Either way, don't use desktop Odin to do this. Once you're at a desktop, extract the boot.img from SlimSaber, put it on your internal storage, and use mobile odin to flash it.

THEN reboot to recovery and start your process over again.


Edit: I've just uploaded the slimsaber boot.img so that it's more easily available.

You can use Mobile Odin to flash the boot.img directly from the download folder.

You are a Genius my friend!

The phone is back to normal now. I have gone back to the AoCP 4.4.2 for now. I will try the Slim Saber once I am over this episode!

Thanks again!!
