My limited experience with the S5 - root and rom
I'm a complete noob here, so it's likely I am repeating things already well known. Maybe someone will find something useful here.
To gain some experience I had played around with a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 before attempting anything with my Australian post-paid S5. That was worthwhile, as I doubt I would have had the confidence to experiment with the S5 - lest I end up with the dreaded brick rather than a fairly new working phone.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 on Virgin Mobile / Optus network. It is the G900I with baseband version G900IDVU1BOJ2 originally upgraded to Android 5.0
I have rooted the phone using the Chainfire CF-Auto-Root-klte-kltedv-smg900i.tar.md5 flashed from Odin. Worked fine. Warranty now voided of course.
I have had a couple of soft brick situations and have found the "escape" is to hold the phone buttons in the download mode configuration until the phone enters download mode. In that circumstance I have then re-flashed the Samsung Optus Stock Android 5.0 G900IDVU1BOJ1_G900IOPSBOJ1_OPS.zip obtained from the Sammobile web site.
I use TWRP recovery which (again) I flash with Odin - the TWRP build used is twrp-3.0.2-2-klte.img.tar. The klte option works OK although any ROMS I use are designated as kltedv compatible. TWRP is good for doing Nandroid backups - which is essential in my opinion. TWRP also allows one to install custom ROM and GAPPS (zipped) builds concurrently. If one doesn't install these concurrently (i.e. in the same TWRP install session before reboot), then problems such as a boot loop may arise on system reboot. I use the Open Gapps builds consistent with the Android ROM version being installed - generally I load the smallest (pico) versions.
I have tried several custom ROMS. In Marshmallow I have found Cyanogen CM13 kltedv nightly builds worked well and remain the most appealing personally. Resurrection Remix Marshmallow also works well - I used ResurrectionRemix-M-v5.7.0-20160618-kltedv.zip. In the case of Android Lollipop ROMS which I also tried, I like the Team Nocturnal and Validus Android 5.1.1 builds which (again) work well. The latter two I found by doing a search on the Androidfilehost website using the generic term "kltedv" which came up with some 80 options.
One final note - I found installing a supplementary SuperSU over any custom ROM made a mess on the subsequent reboot. Typically I get into the endless loop of "Unfortunately blah blah has stopped ..."
I'm happy to add any further detail if anyone is interested.
Regards,
Trevor.

out of the box, probably Omega. If you're a bit more capable with modems, bootloaders, adapting 900F roms to work on 900I and don't need NFC then Alexndr or xXx

what am I doing wrong?
Hello all,

I'm trying to get Xposed installed on my G900I (telstra/australia).
I read that it doesn't work with stock rom so I've tried to install both Omega and Alliance but it still didn't seem to work.
Here's a run down of what I did, can someone please let me know where I went wrong and also how do I know the rom was installed properly.
My phone was originally 4.0 from 2014

First of all I upgraded to the stock 5.0 using odin and enabled install from unknown sources/dev mode:
http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/d...ITEL1BOJ1_TEL/

Then I rooted using CF Auto Root for 900I 5.0:
https://autoroot.chainfire.eu/

Then flashed TWRP 3.0.2 using odin

Loaded up TWRP from recovery and did a factory reset/deleted dalvik/art and cache

Installed Omega via zip from:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=6004
Now this is where I started to think I had issues, because it booted up in about 1-2min, whereas most sites say it can take 10-15 (was this because the phone had been completely wiped and was just faster or did something go wrong, and how do I know it's installed?)

Back in the phone now I installed the Xposed apk, then went back to recovery and installed Xposed framework.
http://dl-xda.xposed.info/framework/sdk21/arm/
Using hardware info I found my phone to be arm7, and since I was using 5.0 I downloaded and installed latest version the sdk21 arm since the options were arm/arm64 and x86

Reboot phone and get the samsung logo, just sat there. I had a fully charged phone so i figured I'd leave it for a while to see if it worked (after 3 total attempts) and came back to a dead battery, charged it up, and nope, still the samsung logo.

What am I doing wrong?

EDIT: I don't really care what rom or anything else is installed, I just want to install Xposed is all.
