You can use Odin even if the phone is rooted, it doesn't matter. But if you want to use something else (heimdall etc.) then you can just unpack the tarball using any common packing software - e.g. 7-zip or winrar.
in the CM13 thread, @passie99 has posted a flashable LP baseband:
When its in that mode, is when you have to use Odin to flash the recovery, from where you can wipe everything and install the ROM..Very first thing I did after downloading everything was VolDown + Home + Power to boot into Odin. I get the confirmation screen, accept that, and then an Android logo and "Downloading Do not turn off target !!"
What's going on? Should I just wait? There's no indication that anything's actually happening.
The Hall sensor is the compass, I think: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hall_effect_sensor
I made it work by rotating the phone twice over each of its three axes after a reboot: that's a way to recalibrate the compass. Otherwise it has been very stable in my experience, apart from YouTube and the camera crashing occasionally (now I'm using CM13, which does not have these issues).
You should be careful what you say. Don't forget: they are not paid for doing this. This use their freetime for making us happy with updates. Furthermore there are a lot of supported roms like slim 6 which have less bugs and are still in development.
Before you start:Disclaimer:
- You flash this image at your own responsibility. I am not responsible for any damage that might be caused by flashing this image (bricked device, lost data, ...)
- Flashing this kernel image will trigger the KNOX counter, so your warranty will be void.
- Applications that use KNOX (e.g. "Private Mode") might not work anymore when returning to the stock ROM, as the device is regarded as compromised. Do not flash this ROM if you need those applications.
- The image is only for Exynos3470 based S5 Mini variants SM-G800F/M/Y.
- It might be instable, crash your device, drain your battery, or even might damage your smartphone (e.g. if an USB-OTG device drains too much power)
- Some users reported that their touch-screen stopped working permanently after some weeks of usage. For some user's (two at the moment including me) NFC stopped working permanently. Probably this issues are not related to this ROM as also many stock user's complain about hardware issues (random reboots, black screens, unresponsive touchscreen) but you have been warned.
- Backup your data before flashing and check if the original firmware is present (e.g. at SamMobile)
