best practices for flashing this rom: give thanks to: @cragains (post #666)
please do a back up in twrp no matter what. Since there isn't a 100% stock rom that has wifi calling working. If you don't do a back up and want to have a 100% stock rom again you'll have to to flash the firmware to do so.
1.Factory reset (you dont have to but I always do)
2.Put in Download Mode
3.Flash ANK3 firmware via Odin
4.DL Mode again
5.Flash Root via Odin
6.DL Mode once more
7.Flash TWRP via Odin
8.Boot into TWRP factory reset (no need to wipe internal storage)


12/13/2014 UPDATE: We have a TWRP recovery!! follow this link: http://androidforums.com/threads/twrp-2-8-1-0-afyonltetmo.887861/ and please thank shabbypenguin.

10. Check box for PDA and click on PDA, to select the file "CF-Auto-Root...." that is in the unzipped folder

____________________________________________

I got the galaxy Avant two days ago from Tmobile.So far I am very happy and impressed, I compared the screen with the S5 side by side, the Z1s, the HTC one M8, the I phone 5s and the LG G2 and I must say that for not being HD it is impressive. at full brightness both the s5 and the Avant with the exact same web page open both screens displayed the exact same content even though the Avant fonts were a bit smaller, however the background white was whiter on the Avant and a bit more yellowish on the S5, then all other phones I compared had whiter whites in the background but the content was very different some showing more and some showing less content ( I can recall which is which.. sorry).

Please share your reviews on the new phone, I think it has impressive specs for a mid range at such a low price. I got mine from T carrier at only $120 with their summer special. With 1.5 Ram, 1.2 quad-core snapdragon 400, 16 GB internal memory plus external micro Sd for up to 64 additional Gb, kit kat 4.4.2 right off the bat plus an unlock app,and full 4G LTE capability this phone has potential for some major development. the camera even only a 5 megapixel takes very decent photos and has nice features like panoramic, shot and sound, sport mode, and a couple more..

By the way... Does anyone know how to root the new Galaxy Avant?

So.. let's talk about this phone and see how good it is and how much better it can become. Thanks.

It's not user error.. it's not willing to be patient.. or just ****ty programming.. "whathaveyou?" :confused:

Anyway since my phone came back from the "no phone calls" dead.. I'll just wait it out... or play with the settings until it's fixed..

i just checked.. I still can't dial out.. so now I'm gonna play with wcdma/gsm.. because it did seem to start working after I did that...
Total user error just call them and tell them you were playing with network setting because you have no clue what you're doing and they will walk you through it to fix it. Easy is that. You're phone isn't bricked because you messed with network settings

I'm wanting to know the same thing or find an unlocked stock rom my sister screwed me on unlocking thru the app. I really love this phone and know you can do it but has anyone unlocked it or has a unlocked stock rom. Cause I need this phone unlocked. I've been using a Samsung j1 and it's giving me problems

I have searched extensively for an unlock method and I ended up buying a remote unlock on ebay for a few dollars.

That was stupid. T-Mobile gives unlocked codes if the device was on them for 3 months

Unlock this thing!

Has there been any luck SIM unlocking this thing yet? It's driving me nuts not being able to use it. I was with WalMart Family Mobile and because I'm not anymore they seem not to want to help me.

Possible SIM unlock method found

So playing around with things as I do, I might have found a way to sim unlock the g386t on stock, rooted.
I have one last part to try, that will tell me if it works, or not, I just need to figure out how to go about accessing it. I've not seen this, but it might be known by now.
Don't know if this is still needed for some people, or if the method might help in other areas. I am not a dev. I have no clue.
If I can try this and it works, I'll post findings. Just need to figure out obtaining this last part. ♠️

Abit of an update**
So I able to replicate the network unlock code entry that pops up, which is good,cuzni wadnt sure if it was a one-off error or not. But every time, I was able to get the code entry to pop up. Image will be attached of code entry popup, and device info, rooted stock TMO firmware. NOT**METRO**

NOW, anyone know a code distributor wiing to donate a code(s) to see if this works? Final step. Fingers-Crossed

Thanks! IF someone can or would like to donate a code, pls shoot me a PM or email. Does anyone know or can verify if anyone has been able to pull the code entry on TMO fw yet?

    That would be me on device tree. I don't own device physically. It's my girlfriend's, so updates may be slow. But we've got good stuff going for us. I attached a photo of current build

    I thought that dude Dfuse wasn't developing for this phone anymore
