Post Reply Email Thread
This is 4.3 JB Stock ROM T889UVUCMK7 which is packed with T889TMBBMD1 bootloader.

Please Note: If you are already on 4.3 (T889UVUCMK7) with KNOX enabled bootloader.
- DO NOT try to flash this ROM using odin from your pc, you will end up with an error.
- If you are looking for stock rooted ROM then either flash the flashable zip from post# 2 or MrRobinson's ROM.


Please see below on how this differs from Stock T889UVUCMK7.
Changes:
1) Replaced the KNOX enabled bootloader (T889UVUCMK7) with a previous (T889TMBBMD1) bootloader.
2) Manually rooted
3) Removed any known KNOX applications and files (listed below)
4) Debloated - (applications are listed below), almost all applications which are removed can be easily downloaded from the Google Play store. If it's not there let me know I can upload it here.

Questions:
1) Who should/can install this ROM ?
- Primarily, users who are still on 4.1.2 and would like to try the 4.3 without having to worry about the bootloader with KNOX. You can easily revert back to any previous ROM as this bootloader does not have any downgrading restrictions.
- Users who do not have mobile odin and would like to update to 4.3 using PC odin and not worry about KNOX bootloader.
- Users who still want to be on the old bootloader, stick to the Stock kernel and do not want to flash any patch.

2) How to install it ?
- Download and extract the file, and flash the md5 file using ODIN.

3) Battery life ?
- Same as stock as this is the Stock ROM.

4) Do I need to wipe/data ?
- Not required but always recommended when switching ROM's.

5) Does Wifi work ? Do I have to flash any patch or custom kernel ?
- Yes, Wifi works.
- No, You do not have to flash any patch or any custom kernel.

6) Are there any known issues, error's?
- I flashed this using pc odin, manually cleared dalvik cache and so far I haven't noticed any issues.

7) Will there be any support for this ROM?
- This is a stock ROM. I have simply assembled ROM components and packed them together with few changes which are listed above. I am not a developer but an android user just like you, If there are any issues I can try to work with you to get them resolved.

T889UVUMK7 - Flashable ZIP
Update: 02/08/2014
Its been reported that wifi does not work after flashing the zip. Please try the PC ODIN version from first post.



Update: 02/06/2014
I was able to create this flashable zip!
The zip file includes
/system - Ofcourse,
META-INF - It includes the update-binary, updater-script (which I had to learn and write) and default certs.
boot.img - Latest(MK7) Kernel
modem.bin - Latest(MK7) Modem
tz.img - This was extracted from stock (MK7)ROM, without this the wifi will not work.
flash-image - This is used to flash the modem

I flashed this using TWRP and mobile ODIN and so far everything looks good.
It should work on CWM too.

To flash:
1) Downlaod the zip file from this post.
2) Copy the zip file on root folder of your sd-card(recommended).
3) Reboot int to recovery (turn off phone then hold Vol up + home then press home).
4) Select Install and then select the zip file.
5) Flash and then reboot once done.
6) Clearing dalvick cache is always recommended after you update or switch ROMS.

I have included status indicators to let you know what's happening.
It takes less than two minutes (1min 55sec) to complete.

Please let me know if for some reason this does not work for you.

- My phone, who did not complain even though I flashed it between 10-15 times within last 24 hours.

am I correct that your Rom does not have the wifi problem of using Mobile Odin with a deknoxed Rom because you incorporated the patch ? or will it only not have the problem if PC Odin is used ?

I haven't noticed any wifi issue yet. I have not incorporated any patch. I simply replaced the most recent bootloader with a previous one.
Flashing this via PC odin should be enough.

I want to try this but I don't have access to any PC. Since I'm on the 4.1.2 Bootloader do you think it's possible to flash this via Mobile ODIN?

BTW... How's battery life on this?

When I had first flashed root66(not this) via mobile odin, I lost wifi.
The reason there is no wifi is because the file tz.img is not flashed using mobile odin.
Battery life seems better with stock than custom kernel.

Updated op with flashable zip.
I used dsixda's Android Kitchen to create the flashable zip.
I simply placed the system.img and boot.img in to the original folder then created a working folder.
zipaligned all apk's and then signed and built ROM.

I tried flashing this via mobile odin but it failed, I then tried flashing this via TWRP and it worked fine.
I only selected wipe cache and dalvick cache options.

Please note I did not format data and system before flashing this via TWRP.
If for some reason this zip does not work for you then you will have to flash the tar.md5 file from OP.

It will be helpful if anyone with a full backup (so that you can revert if there are any issues) can try to flash and test this.
