Thanks Denys Vlasenko/chris41g for busybox, ChainsDD for su, Steady Hawkin/Calkulin for FD02+CWM-Rogue(repack),
sextape for FF18 leak, qbking77 for video, id10terror for Odin 1-click suggestions, mavd5831, RainMotorSports for mirror(s)

You may have heard... the zerglings fought a noble battle against the samdroids and held their own for many battles, but were finally defeated on the EL13 battleground. Starting with EL13 the zergrush exploit is plugged. Do not fear, as the zerglings have enlisted their old ally Odin to fight the next battle for them.

We all owe our gratitude to sextape for providing us the FF18 leak. All your thanks should go in that direction.

This One-Click ODIN contains the STOCK FF18 Modem/Kernel/ROM for the E4GT.

The modem, kernel and ROM are EXACTLY the same as the Official FF18 OTA update as verified using SHA1 checksum and tree comparison. (see this post)

The ONLY change was the addition of ROOT to the ROM. NOTHING else was changed. If you made no other changes, you WOULD be able to install an OTA patch update (based off of FF18) on top of this w/o issues.

This will NOT trigger the Yellow Triangle NOR will it increment the ODIN flash count.

This does NOT have the issue with the USB jig being disabled.

This is equivalent to using the Auto Root Package on a stock ROM. In fact, if you used that package to UNROOT (Option B) this ROM then it would become 100% stock. After flashing this all functions of that package will be functional.

There are two versions provided, a FULL Restore that resets your whole phone, similar to a factory restore, and a No Data Restore, which is the same, except it preserves your User Data. The NoData version is only suggested if you are upgrading or remaining at the same version.



Instructions - Video by qbking77 [ODIN One-Click / Install CWM / Review]

0) Backup anything important and Disable any PINs
This process will restore you to factory software. All your Android data will be reset.
To be safe, it is best to archive your backup off your phone, ie on your PC or dropbox.

Note #1: Please DISABLE any PIN code you may have created to protect your phone. As a security measure, after the flash, Android will ask you for your PIN, if you have one enabled. It is simpler to have no PIN active. If you forgot your PIN then, after the factory restore, just enter the wrong PIN a few times and it will warn you. Enter the wrong PIN again and it will reset the filesystem.

1) Install Samsung USB/Android drivers (if necessary) [USB/Android]

2) Download the FF18 full restore One-Click self-extractor
SPH-D710.FF18_CL663858_ROOTED-oc-sfx.exe [Mirror1 / Mirror2] (RESET user data)
[MD5: 16c7d577feda23d1f4deb448d6453735 / Size: 311,608,965]

SPH-D710.FF18_CL663858_ROOTED_NODATA-oc-sfx.exe [Mirror1 / Mirror2] (PRESERVE user data - do NOT use if downgrading versions)
[MD5: 14ac16b15ef819af73b997a718134aea / Size: 310,594,612]

Mac/Linux - Install 7-zip, then use it to unpack the individual ODIN components in Reference Section B (below). If Heimdall fails flashing all 3 files together, try doing them individually. Skip the remaining instructions that are windows specific (steps 3, 4, 6).

Android - Install ZArchiver, then use it to unpack the ODIN OneClick 7zip self-extractor file in this section (long press *-oc-sfx.exe, Open as archive, Odin-OC, select *-OneClick.exe, Extract). Use Mobile ODIN to Open File the resulting *-OneClick.exe file. Mobile ODIN issue - modem might not flash consistently. Skip the remaining instructions that are windows ODIN specific (steps 3, 4, 5, 6).

3) Extract the package
double-click on the self-extractor file, specify the directory to extract to (instructions assume C:\)

4) Start ODIN One-Click
Navigate to C:\Odin-OC
Full: Double-click on SPH-D710.FF18_CL663858_ROOTED-OneClick.exe
NoData: Double-click on SPH-D710.FF18_CL663858_ROOTED_NODATA-OneClick.exe

Note #1: On Vista or newer, you may need to right-click on the file and Run as Administrator.

5) Place phone in ODIN download mode
Code:
Method #1
Power down phone
Wait for capacitative button lights to turn off
Simultaneously Press and Hold [Power] [VolDn] until confirmation screen appears
Press [VolUp] to enter Download mode
Code:
Method #2
adb reboot download
Code:
Connect USB cable to PC if not already connected
ODIN should show yellow COM port in 2nd column
Note #1: If you do not see a yellow COM port, you may need to run the ODIN One-Click as Administrator and/or unplug/plugin the USB cable after starting ODIN One-Click.

6) Start ODIN flash process
Press [Start]

7) Complete - PASS!
When complete you should see a screen similar to what is shown at top of post
Phone will automatically reboot
Status should change to green PASS!

Boot process will be slightly longer than usual during which time you'll see the 4G logo screen.

If you want CWM use Option D in the Auto Root Package to install FF18+CWM-agat-src (you are already rooted so Option A is not necessary)

If you need to clear NVRAM/Sprint data login info, perform a ##72786# reset from the Dialer and enter MSL.
Type getprop ril.MSL in adb shell or terminal to retrieve your MSL.

For NoData install:
- If you are getting random force closes, wipe cache/dalvik-cache
- If you have troubles with Android Market, clear data from
menu->applications->all->market->clear data
- If you have troubles booting into Android, perform factory reset in ICS using the ODIN OneClick Factory Reset tool. Do NOT perform factory resets using stock recovery or privacy->reset, at least until you read about the EMMC superbrick/lockup bug and understand what the trigger points are and what you are exposing yourself to.

CWM update.zip for FF18 Modem and Kernel are in 2nd post.

Summary of Comments

TurboScroll
This was present in many of the beta builds and was a frequent complaint. Some love it, some hate it, some get used to it. In short, the threshold to initiate a "flick scroll" has been reduced so often, when you are trying to scroll a few lines, it switches to flick scroll mode. Also the flick scrolling is faster than in GB and not always as smooth. If you want to try and get used to it, be more deliberate in your motions. If you want to scroll a few lines, slide your finger and come to a full stop before removing your finger from the screen. If you get into "flick scroll" and want to stop, press your finger on the screen.

I'm on FF11 right now but I wanna do the FULL install and start fresh, I shouldn't have to go back to GB to do that safely right? I just wanna be sure so I don't bork my phone.

And thanks a million for these OC's sfhub, yours are the only ROM's I trust to flash!!

This isn't a common ROM flash. This is an ODIN flash override anything so it can be flashed over any setup you're currently on.

Alright thanks! I just wanted to be sure it was safe since I already had to replace my phone once due to that eMMC bug (or whatever it's called) /data.img problem when when I was trying out the early ICS leaks.
