ROOT newest selinux.

This should be the easiest way to root the i9500 (yes, the so called 8-core one) by now.

Recovery Feature:

1. Based on CWM 6.0.3.2
2. ROOT your phone
Had two methods root in root your phone option,the newest stock must be use new method,and old stock may be use old method is okey.
I had tried some stock firmwares(for example:I9500XXUAMDK、I9500UBUAMDK、I9500XXUAMDK、I95 00ZSUAMDF、I9500XXUAMDE、I9500XXUAMDL、I9500UBUAMDE
、I9500XXUAMDE、I9500XXUAMDE、I9500ZSUAMDF、I9500XXUAM DE、I9500UBUAMDE、I9500UBUAMDE、I9500XXUAMDE、I9500XXU AMDK、I9500ZCUAMDG and so on.)

Thanks:

2、GSeeker、gsmcn and so on tested.

Just download the recovery and unzip it, flash the cofface_samsungI9500_recovery_en_0503.tar as PDA in Odin.

Then turn off the phone and enter recovery by pressing Vol Up+Home+Power keys, and select ROOT YOUR PHONE(Had two root method), reboot, DONE.

Good work buddy. Much appreciated for sharing.

Am just testing my new I9500 (for warranty purposes) first, and then will apply the CWM & root.

Currently have I9500XXUAMDE, but downloading the newer Thai firmware I9500XXUAMDL. Hopefully this method will work. Will report back later if nobody reports success for this firmware before hand.

Edit, for all those following this thread, don't forget to make a nandroid BEFORE applying the root.

Cheers,

UITA

Edit: HotFile link "404 - Not Found"

I wrote the same in the development tread, so make copy here ...
Hi cofface, thank you for your recovery and root.
I have a question. Your recovery make backup with strange path - /data/media/, but user-accessed area of inner-memory have path - /data/media/0. So we don't have easy access to backup via PC connection. Is this possible to change path for backup?

I already rooted with your previous recovery which has worked fine. Whats the story on this one, any need to upgrade to it? As I read it this is just to enable the same recovery for newer firmwares that the older version wasn't working with? I'm on DE and there was no update available to me in Kies.

Works fine on SHV-E300S(SGS4 in Korea, EXYNOS 5410).
Flashing update.zip files and wiping cache and dalvik-cache works flawless
Thx a lot dev!
