UPDATED WITH SAMSUNG ORIGINAL FIRMWARE


Hi SGH-T599 users!
I don't have this device myself, but a S3mini which is pretty much the same device.
Since no official firmwares is to be found yet, and @Unjustified Dev made CM10.1 and CWM I thought it would be good to make something for odin as an option to get back to stock.
These are reworked images taken from devices with dd-method.
Each tar contains boot.img, cache.img, system.img and recovery.img.
Boot and recovery repacked to be accual size. System and cache totaly repacked to sparse ext4-img files.
I also added supersu, su binary and busybox so these are pre-rooted :)
If you for some reason want to unroot, go to supersu settings and tick full unroot.

T599-Pre-rooted.zip - 600.17 MB
T599N-Pre-rooted.zip - 572.45 MB
T599V-Pre-rooted.zip - 579.90 MB

Included is also a zipped "modem.bin" If you messed up your modem you can get it flashed to device with Terminal Emulator.
Put "modem.bin" on your sdcard. In TM, type:
Code:
su
dd if=/sdcard/modem.bin of= dev/block/mmcblk0p16
OFFICIAL FIRMWARE
SGH-T599 HOME_T599UVAOH1_T599TMBAOH1_969628_REV00_user_low_ship<- Strange name. Home usually means no reset and REV00_user_low_ship is usually seen on full flash files with factory reset on flash. This one have both. Don't know if it resets or not.
SGH-T599V T599V_T599VYVLAME4_T599VVLAME4
SGH-T599N T599NUVAOH1_T599NTMBAOH1_T599NUVAOH1_HOME

"one-click-root" (works on s3mini so I think it works here as well)
Enable USB debug. View attachment VRoot_1.6.0.3689_english.zip
Otherwise cydiaimpactor is known to work.

[Recovery][CWM] SGH-T599- Working

[System, Boot & Recovery Dump][8-27-13] SGH-T599 (4.1.2) JZO54K.T599UVAMB5

If coming from CM or other custom rom, FIRST GO TO RECOVERY AND MAKE A FACTORY RESET
HOW TO FLASH:
Download Odin 3.04 and install samsung drivers.
Unzip downloaded firmware.
Open Odin, put phone in download mode (vol-/home/power).
Connect phone to computer, and place the *tar.md5 in PDA-box.
Make sure F-reset time and auto reboot is ticked. Press START.

Attached to this post you'll find a zipped wipe.tar for odin. Unzip and load as pda.
It's just empty cache and should work to break bootloops if you can't get to recovery.

Thanks to @Unjustified Dev @goldfingerfif @exothermic @DJVargas (sorry if I forgot someone) Just let me know and I'll add it.:good:

I can also use the recovery to the original rom from s3mini?

Gesendet von meinem GT-I8190 mit Tapatalk

No you can't. They are very much alike and share same partition layout but s3mini recovery will give you nothing but bootloop. Thats also one of the reason I started this "odin-project" for T599 in the first place.
What's wrong with T599 recovery?

if that is not for the mini s3, I do not understand why this will be posted in s3 mini forum. I'm now even after everything had asked because I like the recovery system of Phils.

It's in s3 mini forum because it's built on the same board and got same partition layout. It doesn't have it's own forum..at least not yet, and because it's the US version of s3mini with only a few differences.

okay now I understand all that thank you for your help. wiessen they might ask if you could do the mini for the s3 can build the recovery system of Phils. I would try it myself but I have no stable internet connection and I am not familiar with Ubuntu.

I'm not the one to do it, but instructions on how to get it done is in Phil's main thread for his recovery. Scroll down to post#2. [18.10.2013]CWM 6.0.4.4 Advanced Edition / PhilZ Touch 5.18.5 + exFAT + NTFS

I try my luck've just seen this applies also for Windows. I've just looked at the time of Phil's git I've got to ask a times I think of the mini s3 DEVICE_CONFIG out or where to get something to read?
