Please make sure you have a recent back up of your phone. Also doubly make sure to backup your /efs folder and your /dev/block/platform/15570000.ufs/by-name/RADIO device. There is a risk of permanently bricking your device if the radio upgrade fails. Remember this is all at your own risk. I promise no function or fitness of use. This will probably cause your phone to blow up and start a thermonuclear war and trip your Knox counter

Understood, flashing Radios is srs bsns.

In other news, the updater-binary isn't working for me. ... Using TWRP.
E: Error executing updater binary in zip '/sdcard/blck_tw_511_samsung_oe6.zip'

Are you using the twrp posted in the op? Are you doing sideload or straight from the device (fwiw I only tested sideload) gimme a second and I'll add a md5sum

EDIT: MD5 (blck_tw_511_samsung_oe6.zip) = 6a96ab53a25ff76fb263a06a7efa256f

EDIT2: Just downloaded from mega and the file matches the original's md5

I say the first bricked phone will happen within 2 hours..

Folks, if you dont REALLY know what you are doing, please reconsider flashing this. And, if you dont know what ADB is, or what sideloading means, do NOT flash this...

And, mega thanks to the OP for putting this out there for the early adopters! :good::good:

Since its such a precious folder I would do this

tar cf /data/local/tmp/efs.tar /efs/*
dd if=/dev/block/platform/15570000.ufs/by-name/EFS of=/data/local/tmp/efs.img

then adb pull those files to your computer and put them in a safe place

Can you expand a bit on what this exactly means- the two lines of script you posted here- are those the ADB pull lines we would use?
Just want to be completely clear on what we have to do to backup before we flash this ROM. Step by Step would be great.

Thanks again for all your work on this!

    I'm secretly hoping that the work I've done will encourage others to contribute. Only reason I did 5.1.1 was; I did the work already for myself and wanted to share. :)

    I'm working on stock deodex base right now thanks to your build here! Hoping to have a working base soon

    Awesome, thanks for putting this together!

    Never thought I would put out a touch wiz rom. Though I'm having a hard time motivating myself to work on aosp. The stock rom is just too damn nice. (With a few small tweaks and debloating. I will probably cut an optimized debloated rom for the community this weekend)
