tar files

It's a tar file for Odin, samsung's own firmware software. Those are the files and Odin is the tool that saves you from a soft brick.

i know a lot about tar files and i have flashed my phone many times via odin...i didn't use ota...always odin.
but i mean about some custom tar files or unsuitable files may cause soft brick.

I'm not following you at all.

You want to root. You started with a program (vroot) which is not known to work on Kit Kat. But you think that it's OK, because it's Chinese. Then you refuse to use Samsung signed factory images to recover your phone. Why? Because they're from Japan?

On a clean NC5 build, Towelroot seems to root just fine. Why not use that?

why are you angry like that.
i didn't refuse to use samsung factory images...i have used them many times to recover from soft brick...i have bricked my phone about 5 times..
this happen because play sytem files or build.prop file.
not matter for me if i used factory images from china or japan....iam not japaness or chiness.
my image was clean but only towel root dosen't work for me so i use the two programs...ok
vroot has been updated to work with kitkat if you have the latest version of it...but on some device may not work properly but it can push su file into /system/xbin....thank you.

Angry? No, just confused as I said. You seemed to be worried about running Odin, an official Samsung application to flash factory stock ROMs but don't seem to have any problems running programs like vroot. Maybe the vroot owners have reformed, so maybe it's time to look. However, it seems very likely that they've just tweaked Towelroot, as vroot couldn't root Kit Kat before Towelroot came out. If so, then they should be telling geohot how to make it work on more models rather than diverting contributions from geohot. But then again, they've never been a part of the community. Their choice, of course.

    First off, You guys need to understand something, VROOT HAS NEVER BEEN PROVEN TO BE A SAFE ROOT METHOD. That being said, there are proven methods out, by trusted sources, to root. Chainfire and geohot have both released methods to root, pick the one for your device and enjoy.

    There's the tar files you flash in odin, full wipe and no wipe. Surge hasn't updated the OP of that thread in awhile so some of what it says is incorrect but the files are still good of course.
