Hello again, I bring to you, TeamWin Recovery Project or commonly known as TWRP (2.5) for your beloved i9505 (S4). I decided to build this as a number of users (including myself) are not much fans of CWM. This gives you the ability to flash your favourite custom ROMs, Kernels, Mods. I have pushed the TWRP Device Tree to my Github, for all of you curious people. Thankyou to 'as i9000' for giving me the stock recovery. Note: This thread will be moved to the i9505 section once its created. If you Encounter any issues with this recovery, report them to this thread with a recovery.log. You can get it by, adb pull /tmp/recovery.log

This has not been tested by me and is still experimental. I hold no responsibility
for any problems caused. YOU! Are trying this at your own risk. Don't blame me that I wasted your $700.

Put a scare in you didn't I?
I have provided the stock recovery if you encounter any issues, you can always flash back. It is Odin flashable.

Does NOT work, tested this just now!
when you try to boot in recovery, phone is restarted automatically, recovery cannot be reached, so i went back to stock recovery

not that I don't appreciate your effort in building it,
but won't the TWRP team create an official thread for the S4?

Then it'll take a long time to fix the boot to recovery..

Try this, I doubt it will work at all. But get some filemanager that can browse ~/ directories. if it says root not available or something, deny it and check if you can continue. If yes, open the recovery.log and send me its contents.
