No one is responsible if you brick your phone or it doesn't boot!

BIG CREDITS TO ZROICE FOR THE SCRIPT, OR THIS WOULDNT BE POSSIBLE.:


Video for the noobs(Thanks DiabeticSwag:

CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO.

Before We Start:
- When I use the term "sdcard" that means the phones built in storage.
- If you are currently on MJ5 and want to restore,incase you made a mistake click here, CLICK HERE TO RESTORE PHONE TO MI9 IF YOU BRICKED MJ5
- VIDEO Tutorial is coming whenever codeman05 finishes it. He is my new partner in this.

Downloads-In Order:
- Download Kn0x0ut from this link,

- Download The second file you need (if flashing international base rom) from this link,

Extras:
-NOT required.Just extras, Att csc files

Requirements:

- Rooted Rom
- Busybox installed. Check by downloading the app in the playstore.
- Basic ADB knowledge
- Windows pc

THERE ARE 2 SETS OF INSTRUCTIONS, BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS PER ROM BASE YOU WILL BE FLASHING!!

Installation:

Flashing T-Mobile Rom Instructions:

SAME AS DIRECTIONS FOR INTERNATIONAL ROM INSTRUCTIONS, BUT DONT DO STEPS 6-8.

Flashing International Rom Instructions:

MUST use Kn0x0ut 1.03.Link in beginning of this post.

1) Odin to a fresh start and root,NOT REQUIRED (any rooting firmware should work of course).

2) Download rom of choice

3) Copy & Extract Kn0x0ut 1.03 to /sdcard

3) Extract Rom and Copy "system" and "data" to /sdcard/kn0x0ut/ extract_files_here

4) Execute this
adb shell
su
mount -o rw,remount /system
cd /sdcard/kn0x0ut
sh kn0x0ut.sh new_rom
5) Manually reboot

6) Copy "system" from "Fixforeverything" to /sdcard/kn0x0ut/extract_files_here

7) Execute this
adb shell
su
mount -o rw,remount /system
cd /sdcard/kn0x0ut
sh kn0x0ut.sh install
8) Manually reboot

After that, everything is working for me,except "Language & Input" in settings...which I will try fixing.
WIFI works
Contacts works
Camera works

Hmm seems legit. Think I'll wait for someone else to try it though. Would be nice to see some Roms float to the att forums

But the more options avaliable the better. You never know, one of these workarounds may lead to a way to unlock the bootloader.

Until they figure out how to unlock the bootloader, you will never be able to flash any ROM to this phone regardless of the method since flashing a ROM requires irt to be flashed to the boot rom which also holds the bootloader and is currently locked tighter then Obamas death grip on the US.

Ha ha Obama sucks

I'm still running MI9 and have the one click to go back if i need too. I am going for it! i have downloaded X Note an in process of copying it over to my SD card. Will report back shortly. Wish me luck!

Edit: 1st attempt ended up in boot loop with the script complaining of a lot of stuff not found. Will one click back and try again.

Edit 2: 2nd attempt was for the gold! now running Xnote 5.1 using the Kn0x0ut script with a few minor changes...

Do not try this if you are running MJ5!!!
Only attempt if you are able to One-click back to MI9!!!

1st Extract the kn0x0ut folder to your sdcard.
2nd Download rom and extract the data and system folder to the "put_files_here" folder

Launch ADB and allow it to connect to phone. USB debugging must be on
Enter the following in the console and grant SU permission when prompted on the device.


Code:
adb shell
su
stop
mount -o rw,remount /system/ /system/
cd /sdcard/kn0x0ut
sh kn0x0ut.sh new_rom

Wait for finish, then manually reboot by holding the power button until it reboots.

Most likely you will need to enter your APN manually.
Please press thanks if this helped you!

You need to be on MI9
MJ5 would be very risky!!!

Anyone still running MI9 and has the one click files could try this with minimal danger i believe.
