This is the second version of the Galaxy Mega 6.3 root solution.
It replaces the original rootable kernel.
This version comes with SuperSU 1.41 preinstalled and the su and busybox pathes have been changed to achieve better compatibility with some root applications.

The vcoreroot-v2.tar file can be flashed with Odin as PDA.
Keep Auto Reboot and F.Reset Time selected.

Use at your own risk, I'm not responsible for bricking your device.

Download: vcoreroot-v2.tar

Will this improve the root of devices rooted using the previous method? Or will this do the same thing? Can we redo the process?

It basically does the same thing. It's just more compatible with some apps like the Multi Window Manager and SuperSU is preinstalled.

I see. I don't have any compatibility problems at the moment with the old method so I'll pass. Thanks for the hard work :good:

To completely unroot the device you have to uninstall SuperSU before re-flashing the device with the original ROM.
SuperSU can be uninstalled via the SuperSU settings menu.

Hi VCore

The Odin v3.07 works well for kernel's. To flash a new Stock Rom is all compatible and safe on i9205?
For example, the LTE modem have a size about 48 MB and is on 3 partitions like this:

rwxrwxrwx root root 2013-01-01 02:26 modem -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p1
lrwxrwxrwx root root 2013-01-01 02:26 modemst1 -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p11
lrwxrwxrwx root root 2013-01-01 02:26 modemst2 -> /dev/block/mmcblk0p12

It will be good on Odin?
What do You think?

Working moving apps to external sd?

With this new rooted kernel version is it possible to move apps from internal storage to the external sd? 8 gb aren't that much space...

Thank you. You've made​​, or is it universal? How do I install? You can do a TAR file?

    100% working CWM-based Recovery v6.0.3.2 (20130621)

    Tested on my Galaxy i9205 Mega XUAMED_ITV http://goo.gl/sTbDl

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

    SUCCESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.......

    I flashed the CWM-based Recovery v6.0.3.2 (20130621) successfully...

    and I got the CWM working now. Thank you so much Alda.V for this....( I got the same 2 red lines after flashing
    this, I tried to flash the stock kernel for this but it did not work. But that is fine, We have a working CWM
    now..Thanks to Alda.V for this..)

    Here is my story of research..

    I then did a backup of the Factory installed ROM using this CWM. It backed up fine.
    Then did a reset/factory restore and deleted Dalvik-Cache fine. It worked fine.
    My mistake I also formatted the \System, \Data, \Cache along with reset/factory restore and rebooted the phone.
    To my bad luck the phone stayed at the boot logo ( Samsung GT-I9200 )
    Then I realised I should not have formatted the \System...... :(
    Tried again only to reset/factory restore and deleted Dalvik-Cache and checked it.
    Nothing worked.. :(
    I tried to restore the backup of the Factory installed ROM but it will not find the files. But I backed up the
    Factory installed ROM fine. I did not know what to do now. My thought was only to take the phone to Service
    Center again.

    Then I got an idea about the Stock Pre-rooted Firmware by Alexyuh. I downloaded the Stock Pre-rooted Firmware
    for my Phone Galaxy Mega I9200 Mega 6.3 India-INU.
    by Alexyuh ( Thanks much for this firmware)

    https://hotfile.com/dl/234619968/2528e86/ROS_I9200XXUAMEA_I9200SERAME4_I9200XXUAMEA_SER.zip.html

    Flashed this using Odin and that worked. After rebooting I got the Russian language but I changed it to English
    (United States) and checked it. All went fine and all working good now.
    Also checked with backup of this Stock Pre-rooted Firmware and successfully restored it. Not sure why I could
    not restore the Factory installed ROM. I now know what to with this Phone..From backing up to restoring it)

    Thanks to everyone for this..I attached images of this..Please check them... :)

    Whit new Custom Recovery 6.0.3.2 we can make this to have root:

    - Flash the Stock kernel (if is not already).
    - Flash CWM-Recovery-6.0.3.2
    - On recovery flash the .zip attached.
    ----> We have all root issues solved.

    Tried this .zip on i9205, new Rom MG3. Worked nice.
