Easy switching between locked and unlocked bootloader states!

How to enable init.d support:
Open a filemanager app and navigate to the location where the XZDualRecovery folder is located and go in to it. Open XZDR.prop as a text file and set dr.initd.active to true.

NOTE: For this guide ROM it means the init.d script called 99SuperSUDaemon will kick in to action, so it's best to disable (by setting chmod 644) /system/etc/install-recovery.sh for the time being or to clear it's contents.

Done :)

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

Because I have to prioritize the time I have between projects and my personal life as well as my business life got increasingly busy, I have decided this was the last package I have done for public release.

Anyone able and willing is invited to take over the magic wand of releasing these update packages. I will be working on expanding the toolkit used for it and will keep updating the DIY thread, working with who ever takes over to fix any issues in the ROM that might be caused by security issues. These will be implemented in XZDR as soon as a solution is found, so you will still see loads more from me, just no ROM packages.

The DIY thread: [DIY GUIDE] Create a personalized ROM yourself!

Ask any question on the process of creating these packages there.

I will be placing the files which I released under the Download tab on the DevDB bar, cleaning stuff from my private downloads server in the coming weeks. The last topics I did for the update packages will remain open but I will stop monitoring them as soon as the files have been put on the XDA file server.

    Requirements:

    Special features:

    In the following guide I suggest you use an external SDCard but that's just good practice, you can use your internal storage or even an USB OTG storage device in TWRP if you like to install, that's no problem!... If you are modding and the likes, best is to have an external sdcard, just for safeties sake.

    If you are unable to download torrent files directly, have http://zbigz.com/ do it for you!

    How to update to 14.2.A.1.136:
    1. Files:Save them somewhere you remember;
    2. Put 'C69XX_14.2.A.1.136.flashable.zip' on (the external) SDcard1;
    3. Put 'C69XX_14.2.A.1.136_Stripped.ftf' inside the Flashtool/firmwares folder;
    4. Create a backup of your phone in TWRP and don't forget to backup the contents of 'SDCard' (the internal storage!);
    5. Flash 'C69XX_14.2.A.1.136.flashable.zip' in TWRP;
      NOTE: do not reboot but go back to the main menu, then go to reboot->power off;
    6. Flash everything in 'C69XX_14.2.A.1.136_Stripped.ftf' using flashtool;
    7. Reboot to system.

    The first boot will be slow and after some time at the boot animation you will see Android start optimizing the apps on your phone.

    Enjoy! :laugh:

    Unlocked bootloader?
    To be able to use this ROM without any special tweaking, download C6903_14.2.A.1.136_kernel.img and
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot C6903_14.2.A.1.136_kernel.img

    Or use flashtool to flash it.

    It is a kernel repack, with only one change. To confirm you are running this kernel, check if the file '/nuts_repack' exists.

    DE-ODEX your ROM!
    1. Make sure you have the flashable ROM installed before you do this.
    2. Download C6903_14.2.A.1.136_deodex.zip (Bittorrent: 412MB), save it somewhere you remember;
    3. Put 'C6903_14.2.A.1.136_deodex.zip' on (the external) SDcard1;
    4. Create a backup of your phone in CWM or TWRP and don't forget to backup the contents of 'SDCard0';
    5. Flash 'C6903_14.2.A.1.136_deodex.zip' in recovery, do not reboot but go back to the main menu;
    6. Clear dalvik-cache ONLY;
    7. Reboot to system.

    The first boot after flashing this you will see Android optimizing the apps on your phone, this might take a while... but should be just fine :)

    Known XZDualRecovery Issues:
    Busybox Updater/Installer: If you have XZDualRecovery installed, un-install any Busybox updating app/tool as most if not all of them will install a version of busybox which does not support the lzma compression applets XZDualRecovery depends on. The version installed together with XZDualRecovery is very stable and I have yet to hear anyone complain about it's stability.

    How to report errors:
    Please, before shouting out "It doesn't work!!1!" or "I lost root!" or even "My phone reboots when remounting /system RW!!" try the following:
    • Restore any JB 4.2.2 FTF using any means you are familiar with so you can try again.
    • Root it using any means you are familiar with.
    • Install XZDualRecovery;
    • Update to 14.2.A.0.290;
    • Then try to update again using TWRP.
    • If it still fails something from there on: LOGS!!.
      NOTE: The important ones can be found in /cache/recovery and in /sdcard1/XZDualRecovery, pack them up and send them to me or attach them to your bug report.

    Thank you :)

    FAQ & Tips and Tricks

    Easy switching between locked and unlocked bootloader states!
    NOTE: USE TWRP ONLY for this guide.
    NOTE 2: You NEED to have XZDualRecovery 2.7.43 or higher to make this work.
    • Create a backup, including the Trim Area (TA!)
    • Unlock your bootloader
    • Restore backup without TA
    • Create a new backup of your UNLOCKED TA
    • Restore the previous TA backup to relock your phone.

    Done :good:

    Now you can switch between locked and unlocked bootloaders quick and painless: no more system wipes and you can basically do whatever you want :D

    How to enable init.d support:
    Open a filemanager app and navigate to the location where the XZDualRecovery folder is located and go in to it. Open XZDR.prop as a text file and set dr.initd.active to true.

    NOTE: For this guide ROM it means the init.d script called 99SuperSUDaemon will kick in to action, so it's best to disable (by setting chmod 644) /system/etc/install-recovery.sh for the time being or to clear it's contents.

    Done :)

    Downgrading to a 4.2 ROM:
    Download C6903_14.1.G.1.534_[NUT].ftf (Bittorrent: 770MB) and flash it using FlashTool. I've also added the FTF to the downloads page on this DevDB tab, this will allow straight downloads as well.

    This FTF will allow you to downgrade to .534 without loss of your IMEI :good:

    Thanks to @mharckk and @MohammadAG for the workaround which contributed to the creation of this FTF.

    ROM STATUS: STABLE

    At this moment, running out of time to sleep before work tomorrow, I have to put this online still with a SEMI-ROOT :(

    Fortunately recovery is working well, so I will be able to release a simple patch once I crack this one :good:

    No patch required, it was my sleep deprived stupidity which resulted in a stupid mistake!
