I've got a fail in ODIN :( My phone is on 4.3 pre rooted and with knox flag.
Are there any requirements like stock recovery or something like that?

i rotted only with supersu.
What exactly do the i9506rootv2.zip?

Without these i had no problems.
Backup, restore, all ok.

antutu is the same. 36.000 around.
But now with 1 day of use i dont see much improvement
over 4.3

In 4.3 i could choose what i want to sync in google account / services. Now looks like it's not allowed anymore...meaning have to sync anything...which means more akku drain.

I tried to edit platform.xml to get wright access to sd card but i can't save...maybe because of the knox files aka security setttings?

hey guys,
I rooted my phone successfully and root checker confirmed the same. I'm from Australia(Vodafone network);
- Will this 4.4.2 update work fine on my phone (Because it's a french release)?
- Will it wipe everything on phone? (I dont use an ext SD card)

Sorry im new to this and hence the stupid questions :/

Thanks a lot guys
Dilla
