It is possible to port the latest avaliable version at the 9505G forums for our 9505 (I did that), but I'm facing some bugs that I really have no interest/time/knowledge in solving. But its not hard, SuperR's Kitchen did most of the work for me.

No june update posted! Help!

Can anyone upload the June update here please? I've been looking for it around here and I can't find it neither, and I've also gone crazy trying to find it inside the cache folder of my phone to edit .zip file and update myself but I've had no luck finding it. I've come to the conclusion that the reason I can't find it anywhere is that my phone doesn't actually download it, although it notifies me that there is the "June 2016 SMR" update "LMY470.S008.160601"

HElp please!!

Hey, so basically I'm pachi24 but from my google account, not sure what happened. I flashed the May one that was uploaded with a link like 3 or 4 pages back and then I flashed this June one, if you want to stay on the save side then go ahead and flash the first page (which I believe is the march april version), then update to May, and then finally June, its only three .zip file flashings (march/april, may & june), plus I did the patch from the first page/post each time I flashed and also flashed the original GPE 5.1.1 Kernel which I found simply by google searching exactly that and also flashed it as it was on a .zip file, that I would only do at the end. This procedure might be long and unnecessary but this is how I did it and it works with no hickups, all is working fine with the google launcher which i downloaded at the end from the google play store. Only issue I have is when I make a call the screen goes off as it should but then when i remove the phone from my face the phone doesn't pick up the sensor and it never switches back on for me to hang up, pressing the home button several times or playing with ur finger on and off the top screen sensor usually fixes this, or simply wait for the other person to hang up, I have a feeling that there is probably a fix for this on xpose some how, though haven't checked yet.

Hope this helps,
Pachi

Could you tell me what's the right order to flash?

Should I flash the rom 5.1 (v.1.4) from the first post of this thread, then the patch from the first page of this thread and then this june patch? :confused:

Thanks in advance

    | Google Play Edition 5.1 | Untouched | Odexed | LMY47O |

    PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST BEFORE FLASHING
    ==================================================

    About:

    I used to own an S4, and untouched ROM's were perfect for me who wanted an experience as close to stock as possible. Other GPE ROM's just didn't fully cater for what I wanted - a ROM as if my phone was a true Google Play Edition device.

    @dandroid13 had the perfect ROM, but when he gave up his S4 he couldn't release a new version once 5.1 came out (if it ever came out!), so passed on the details to me. I also no longer have an S4, but thought that there might be a place for an untouched ROM, so here it is.

    Important Info:
    I no longer own an S4 so cannot test this ROM myself. Please flash only if you know exactly what you are doing. I accept no responsibility for bricked devices, loss of data, or anything else that may go wrong during the process. I will try my best to support you, but you have to appreciate I no longer own the device so I might not know. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

    ==================================================

    Special Thanks to:
    @dandroid13 for his help, guidance, support and base updater scripts (I believe to be from @Danvdh).
    @LastStandingDroid for re-porting, fixing, and re-releasing the ROM.
    @SamuriHL for the base 5.1 Odin .tar.
    @yener90 for finding out the Security FC fix.
    @nintendolinky for fixing the SD Card Read-Only issue.

    ==================================================

    Changelog:

    1.4
    Updated to latest OTA update by @LastStandingDroid

    1.3
    Updated to latest OTA update by @LastStandingDroid

    1.2
    Updated to latest OTA update (stagefright patch)

    Super Fixed Release by @LastStandingDroid

    Fixed symlinks stopping camera from working. ROM now works perfectly.

    Fixed Release (1.1)

    - Re-extracted system dump - now working fine

    Initial Release (1.0)

    - Samsung provided Android 5.1 GPE
    - removed keystore.msm8960.so
    - updated external_sd permissions

    ==================================================

    Install instructions:
    - Boot to Recovery.
    - Wipe Data if you are not coming from a 5.0 Google Play edition ROM.
    - Flash the zip.
    - Flash the patch.
    - Reboot.
    - FIRST BOOT MAY TAKE SOME TIME

    ==================================================

    What's not working:

    Nothing!

    Download 5.1:
    ROM - Mega

    Pre-Rooted PC1: ROM - Mega
    (for this one only - Reboot recovery, Select mount system, Flash.)

    Patch - Google Drive
    Patch - Mega

    Download 5.0:
    ROM - Mega

    Patch - Google Drive
    Patch - Mega

    This patch fixes a force close in the Settings app when launching the Security area, a crash when uninstalling apps, and enables the gallery app to delete files from the external SD card. If you do not have these issues the patch may not be required but I recommend it is installed.

    FAQ:

    It doesn't boot!
    It will - give it time.

    Where is the Google Now Launcher?
    Not included - this ROM is as Google and Samsung released - Google Now Launcher is available on the Play Store.

    Does anyone get random reboots with this ROM?
    Some of you will, some of you won't. It's luck of the draw. If you do get random reboots this is an internal compatibility issue between your handset and the stock kernel. Flash a different kernel.

    Quite weird cause when i extracted the ota update zip that a user posted online last night it had the folder... maybe the odin image is messed up :eek:

    Removed the ZIP - there's evidently something wrong. I'll take a look, rebuild and reupload. Sorry to build peoples hopes up!

    I know how to resolve the issues with the ZIP. A new build will be up tonight. Thanks for your patience!
