[GT-i9500] 【05.30】cofface CWM 6.0.3.2 RECOVERY & ROOT&UNROOT (EASY and WORKING) V3.0

Update 2013.05.30 by cofface
ROOT newest selinux.

This should be the easiest way to root the i9500 (yes, the so called 8-core one) by now.

05.30 Update:
1.Support newest Rom Root
2.Fix exfat sdcard
3.Add Unroot feature
4.Add newest superuser.apk
5.Support flash done auto into recovery mode
6.Supprot disable stock recovery


Recovery Feature:

1. Based on CWM 6.0.3.2
2. ROOT your phone
Had two methods root in root your phone option,the newest stock must be use new method,and old stock may be use old method is okey.
I had tried some stock firmwares(for example:I9500XXUAMDK、I9500UBUAMDK、I9500XXUAMDK、I9500ZSUAMDF、I9500XXUAMDE、I9500XXUAMDL、I9500UBUAMDE
、I9500XXUAMDE、I9500XXUAMDE、I9500ZSUAMDF、I9500XXUAMDE、I9500UBUAMDE、I9500UBUAMDE、I9500XXUAMDE、I9500XXUAMDK、I9500ZCUAMDG and so on.)

Thanks:

2、xiao1u、supercurio、etc.

Just download the recovery and unzip it, flash the cofface_S4_recovery_en_V3.0.tar as PDA in Odin.

Then turn off the phone and enter recovery by pressing Vol Up+Home+Power keys, and select ROOT YOUR PHONE(Had two root method), reboot, DONE.

Hi cofface, thank you for your recovery and root.
I have a question. Your recovery make backup with strange path - /data/media/, but user-accessed area of inner-memory have path - /data/media/0. So we don't have easy access to backup via PC connection. Is this possible to change path for backup?

i am on I9500XXUAMDL

followed the method posted, getting following error

"BusyBox works but the "su" command does not elevate to root. There's something wrong with you "su" binary and/or "superuser" app.

Please try to root your device again

Kindly advise...

Hey guys, it's my first android so I'm a total newb with rooting. How can I make a full phone backup so if I mess up I can safely restore my data and settings?

    same goes here...we have same kernel, same issue. Please help us!

    All right this is what u need to do (it worked for me at least)

    1. In Odin, do not tick Auto Reboot, leave it unchecked.
    2. Leave F.Reset Time checked.
    3. Flash the file, that u downloaded from this thread.
    4. After flashing, remove the usb cable from the phone.
    5. Keep the Vol UP + Home button + power button pressed, and the phone will boot into the recovery menu and then u can root the phone.

    NOTE: In case step 5 did not work, then redo it again, it will work.
