Here is the stripped version of ICL53F.

FLASH AT YOUR OWN RISK

Changelogs are not fully known yet, but I do know this is Android 4.0.2 and USB host is now working :)

Stripped meaning no bootloaders, no recovery (so you keep your current CWM), and no wipe (so you keep your data).

IMPORTANT: No wipe is only if your device has been previously OEM unlocked. If your device is NOT OEM unlocked, this WILL wipe your data !

It does include kernel, system and modem, and it's an ODIN tar because ... just because !

MYSID (LTE): http://www.multiupload.com/3ZZ79I7057

In doubt which one you want ? ADB the following commands:

adb shell getprop ro.product.name
adb shell getprop ro.build.description
adb shell getprop ro.build.fingerprint

ODIN ?!

The (Windows) software is attached. USE THE ATTACHED VERSION. DO NOT USE AN OLDER VERSION. A lot of you will be familiar with ODIN from other Samsung devices... well, it works exactly the same on this device.

Turn off your device, turn it on again by holding volume-down and power to enter ODIN download mode.

Launch the ODIN software, press the PDA button and select the .tar file you extracted from the .zip file you downloaded.

Make sure in the ODIN program "Re-Partition", "Phone EFS Clear", and "Phone Bootloader Update" are NOT checked.

Connect the Android device with your computer and you should see a yellow box in the ODIN program. Press the "Start" button, wait a minute or so, and your device will be booted with this firmware.

Also see the attached image, which has every box you need to look at circled in red :)

Hi Chain fire

First of all its nice to see you on the Nexus section. Don't know what I would have down without your fantastic rooted kernels on the SGS2.

Do you loose root and boot loader is locked again if you flash this 53F?

@Chainfire can you add the mac OSX step by step too plz.

Thanks for sharing this :)

Hi Chain fire

You will lose root. If you have CWM recovery installed you can just flash a Superuser package through recovery, as CWM is not overwritten by this flash.

This flash does not include bootloaders, and will not re-lock your bootloaders.

(It even appears ODIN will unlock your bootloader if it was locked)

Can't confirm because I don't know. I have only had the charging issue when using custom kernels, the stock kernel had no issue for me.

Not sure if I will release a CF-Root... as this device has a separate recovery partition, there is not that much need for CF-Root... It's still handy though, of course.

Should the bootloaders prove needed and/or helpful, I will release a separate bootloader package so you can flash those later.

Any chance that I can flash it on to yakjuux and have no problems?

Nobody knows.

To be fair, I don't even know which model I have. I flashed the Google provided stock image of ITL41F within an hour of getting my Nexus last week, due to soft-bricking it (yeah, that quick).

It may work, it may not.

Nice to see you here Chainfire. Thanks for this, I will flash it now as I'm looking for a stock ROM, or just stock in its own. I find custom ROM's cause too much battery drain with all the features that are adding.

Thanks but it turns out the new bootloader doesn't fix the issue

So if i flash this with odin then i keep the unlocked bootloader and cwm but i loose root....what do you mean with flash a superuser package? ( i wanna go back to stock for now cause on every custom rom/kernel i get a really bad battery drain )

Maybe the new bootloader fixes the RF interference (debounce time) on the volume buttons (that was only patched in the kernel in the last update)?

I guess someone who lives in a region that had that problem would have to check.
