Hi guys

A guy asked me to create a thread of flashable pre-rooted firmwares so i did it. this thread is for lazy peoples who don't want or can't create their own pre-rooted firmware
If you've never flashed a pre-rooted firmware in recovery mode before, please read carefully all the warnings and the instructions for beginners.
Before any question, read all the FAQs.
Any suggestion is welcome!

Warnings

  • This process will NOT void your warranty! (if your bootloader is still locked)
  • No root needed.
  • Custom recovery is required!
  • This process will NOT unlock your device: if your bootloader is still locked, it will remain locked.
  • This process will NOT re-lock your device: if your bootloader is already unlocked, it will remain unlocked.
  • With this process you won't lose your DRM keys (locked bootloader), so don't worry about it
  • This process will NOT delete all your user data (apps, accounts and so on...), but doing dirty install can make your device unstable. a full wipe is always recommended!!!
  • This process will NOT delete your internal memory.
  • This process will NOT delete anything inside your SD card.

Don't be overly confident! If you've got important files in your phone (like pictures, documents, videos...) which you can't absolutely lose, make a copy and keep it in a safe place before any change!



F.A.Q.

Please read the F.A.Q before posting!

Q: I cannot find root... where is my root?
A: All firmwares always have SuperSU included so you can't just lose the root. Have you flashed the pre-rooted firmware with other recovery? If so, please try TWRP recovery!

Q: Are these firmwares odexed or deodexed? Since they are stock, must be odexed. Right?
A: Yes, they are odexed and untouched.

Q: Will OTA (over-the-air) updates stop working?
A: No, OTA will be preserved and you'll receive the next upgrades as usual.
Remember that OTA works only with locked bootloader.

Q: Can I install a firmware from a country which is not mine?
A: Yes you can, as all the unbranded firmwares are almost the same stuff except for some apps that can be uninstalled without any problem.
Anyway it's better to choose the country nearest to you, because there could be some little differencies with network settings.

Q: What's my current customization number?
A: Open the phone dial pad and press *#*#7378423#*#*, then tap on Service info > Software info and read the number under "Customization Version". You can find a complete list of customizations HERE.

Q: Can I install a firmware for another phone model which is not mine?
A: Never do that, especially if you're a noob: you could mess up your device seriously!

Q: My current firmware is already rooted, will I need to root again after flashing?
A: No you don't need.

Q: Can I flash a firmware with CWM/Philz?
A: Yes you can, but since peoples created a firmware with PRFcreator 1.0 it will cause the phone to bootloop "set_perm some changes failed"!


How to flash

Important: Make a backup before flashing!

  1. Download and copy the pre-rooted firmware into the micro SDcard
  2. Reboot your phone, boot into the recovery before the phone boot into Android OS (if you knew how to do it). If you using XZDualRecovery, press VOL DOWN to boot into TWRP or VOL UP to boot into CWM after your phone vibrate twice. I recommended TWRP!
  3. Wipe /data, /dalvik-cache, and /cache (recommended)
  4. Open "Install ZIP" and go to the location where you copied the firmware
  5. Boot your phone. It will take 10 minutes to boot for the first time


How to make a pre-rooted firmware

Do you need/want a pre-rooted firmware which is not already present inside the list? Try to make your own pre-rooted firmware by yourself!
You need PRFCreator and read the tutorial.
Download SuperSU and XZDualRecovery flashable ZIP


LTE/4G icons

Are you interested in 4G or LTE icon? Here is a list, in order to choose the best firmware for you.
Please, help me to keep it updated and tell me if you find out which icon is inside a firmware not listed below

Thanks to both of you. Chris is the .232 UA one you list the USA version? If not it would be much appreciated if you could create a zip when you have time.
A big thanks for the md5, not many people list this but it's vital to ensure the download completed correctly. If anyone wants to check the md5 there are few apps that do this, I use Solid Explorer.

The UA version is Ukraine, not the USA. I'm not at home right now, tonight I'll check if the USA firmware is available.

- edit -

The USA 232 version is not available, at the moment.

thanks. why not upload to mega.co.nz?
Ok, future ROMs I'll also upload a mirror to mega.

I don't want to wait for hours when I can upload to my own network/FTP in minutes.
My FTP is around 5MiB/s, I think this is fast enough, mayby I'll upgrade to 10MiB/s next month. Others are welcome to mirror my files.
