ML4 is released.

WARNING: Stop asking if you can flash this on other phones. You can NOT. It is meant for the I9505G ONLY. This is NOT a "rom". This is a system image for the I9505G. Flashing to any other phone will brick it.

Kernel Source:

http://opensource.samsung.com/recept...alue=GT-I9505G

OTA zip (must be sideloaded in stock recovery) [Thanks @EthanFirst for the link]:

http://android.clients.google.com/pa...Update_FWD.zip

Root method (does not overwrite stock recovery):

http://www.mediafire.com/download/tn...4_GPE_ROOT.zip

ODIN FULL RECOVER IMAGE (root is built in):

Shamelessly stealing @MJHawaii instructions from this thread (THANK YOU):

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2398217

(DISCLAIMER) Please read and follow the instructions carefully. I nor anyone else on this forum is responsible if you brick your phone, lose your job, or life as you know it ends. Make sure you fully Understand what you're doing before you do it. Modifying any phone comes with a risk.


INSTRUCTIONS:

WARNING: Please do not flash this if you're low on battery...go charge your phone!

o) Download the I9505GUEUBxxx_FULL_ROOTED.tar.md5.gz package from below
o) Make sure you have the USB Drivers installed and you have Odin 3.09 from below
o) Put your phone in download mode and connect it to USB:
-Disconnect the phone from USB
-Power OFF your phone
-Hold Volume Down, Home, and Power
-When the "WARNING!!!" screen comes up, release the buttons
-Volume up to enter download mode
-Connect the phone to USB
o) Open Odin
o) Click on AP, then select the I9505GUEUBxxx_FULL_ROOTED.tar.md5.gz package you downloaded
o) Odin will extract the tar md5 file from the gzip archive, and this will take a while...be patient
o) Once the tar md5 is loaded, make sure you have a COM PORT in Odin ( any )
o) Click Start and wait till it finishes flashing...your phone should reboot when it's done

NOTE: If your phone does not boot, then boot into stock recovery and Wipe Data Factory Reset.

DOWNLOADS:

ODIN 3.09

I9505GUEUBML4_FULL_ROOTED.tar.md5.gz

A GIANT thank you to @MJHawaii for helping me learn this process!!!

You don't need to do any extra steps. Just ODIN the .tar file
I9505GUEUBML4_FULL_ROOTED.tar.md5.gz
and you are good to go. You will need to also ODIN the radio file and any custom recovery you want (I recommend CWM 6.0.4.4 as I am not sure the TWRP works for KK).

Yes, what you should end up with is the rooted software on your phone. You should have the stock recovery, and whatever radio you started out with. The latest radio can be located in a different thread here and a custom recovery can also be added. If you are not really comfortable doing this, go to the sticky and read and then read some more. You don't want to create problems for yourself.

Pretty sure that ODIN does not wipe your phone. Your success flashing without a wipe always depends what you are coming from. As long as you do a backup prior to flashing (to insure you have a working copy), you can always dirty flash and if it does not work, do a clean flash.

Isn't the new 4.4.2 update I9505GUEUCML4? Or is this the 4.4 Base and then I have to flash the OTA update which will keep the root?

@SamuriHL can answer this. I don't want to speculate as to where this came from. It does show as 4.4.2 after install, but not sure what the source was.

Sorry, been away most of the day. It's 4.4.2 from the OTA. Basically how this gets made is that I create signed boot, recovery, and modem files from the OTA zip, then I dd extract system img (which is why it's rooted since you have to root it to dd extract). Everything gets added to the ODIN tar md5 and then gzipped for size. You don't have to flash anything else. And it will not erase data.
