  3. Flashing the Stock odin file: This is for Flashing back to stock on the newest version (4.4.2 KitKat). Now I know this phone is getting pretty old but I needed this about a week ago cause my phone was not acting right. I could not find a good guide on how to flash back to stock and once on the newest version it was even harder to root. So hopefully this helps anybody that actually comes to this phone so late in the game or has never really had to do this. I apologize if there is something like this in the threads already I just could not find it. Download the Root Helper package zip file here: Originally in NA7Q Craptastic root helper thread here: Unzip the Root Helper in a convenient location for you and don't remove anything. In here you will find 2 things you will need. The Odin (Computer version 3.07) itself. And the recovery (tar file) you will use a little later to root after getting back to stock. I'm sure there are a lot of places to download Odin and newer versions but this is the one I used and worked fine. Now you want to download the Stock Odin file to flash in Odin. For the newest one go here and download this (NE2): If you want an older version go to snodrog742 thread and click on the link you want here: Now you should have all the tools you need to flash to stock. Now would be the time to back up stuff you need on your phone. Like for instance make sure your phone numbers are synced with Google, pictures not on external sdcard (you never know). If you have titanium back up, back up your apps and app data (never caused any problems for me). Don't back up system stuff because I'm sure it's useless and probably will cause problems down the road. Though I didn't have problems it might be wise to back up sdcard's to computer just in case. You may want to make a nandroid back up as well though I'm not sure if it will be usable after flashing the new firmware (never tried). Another thing you want to do is a factory data reset. If you are rooted with a custom recovery it would probably be best to do this from recovery. If not the reset to factory settings within android probably will be sufficient? If you don't reset it will keep your apps and data but it will probably cause you problems. Now you want to go to SU folder you downloaded and unzipped and open it and right click on the Odin application and run as administrator. Here you want to checkmark the PDA box and click PDA button and navigate to the Stock Odin file (ex: R950VXUCNE2_R950USCCNE2_R950VXUCNE2_HOME.tar.md5) you downloaded earlier and open it. It should now appear in the box next to PDA. Now you want to checkmark Auto Reboot and R.Reset Time in the "Options" section. These are the only 2 boxes that should be selected in this section. Now when I did it the F. Reset Time was already selected and the Auto Reboot was greyed out and couldn't check this one. Don't worry about this, you can do a battery pull when all is flashed. Now you want to place your phone in download mode. This is done when the phone is off. Press and hold the volume down, home, and power button at the same time. You should see a screen asking you to go to download mode, just follow the directions and select yes. After you're in download mode you may now plug your USB cable from computer into the phone. Here you may see one of two different things. You may see a bubble in the task bar saying installing drivers. If so let it do it's thing. After they are installed you will have to disconnect cable and reconnect. Now you should see one of the boxes in Odin near the top displaying "COM-6" (number is irrelevant). You may also just see the the COM-6 straight away on the first connect. This means you installed the drivers previously. If you are having problems with the drivers it is suggested to install Samsung Kies. I did not have problems, so I really can't guide you on this circumstance (sorry). Once you have the COM-6 in the box you are ready to start. Now this is where it is important to keep the device attached and don't touch anything until it is finished. Now you will hit the start button on Odin and let it do its magic. Here you will see Odin uploading different packages and a progress bar on your phone. If you were able to check the auto reboot wait until your phone reboots and you are ok to disconnect. If you weren't able to check auto reboot wait until the box closest to the top left displays "PASS". Now disconnect phone pull the battery and re-insert and power it back up. You are now on the stock ROM and no need to look further if you are happy this way. If you are going to root the phone leave the Odin open cause you will use again in the next step. Now I know the last 2 paragraphs may be confusing so here is a link to the guide I followed which is very well put together with pictures: Also iRub1Out has a good guide on going back to stock here: Of course I didn't see this thread til after doing all of this and writing this for that matter (not sure how I missed it, but could have been useful at the time of doing this myself). You will notice he mentioned something about using triangle away and removing modified. I really didn't care about warranty issues and I'm not sure it really even matters anymore with knox. So I did not do this but feel free to follow his steps if you wish. Rooting: This is for rooting the newest (NE2 4.4.2 KitKat) version. It may work for 4.3 but I didn't try this so I can't say for sure. I really doubt it'll work for anything previously but just go to the craptastic link above and all should be fine. Just a warning you will void your factory warranty when you flash these recoveries because this will trip Knox. If you aren't worried about it go on with the next steps. I had my phone for 1.5 years so I was out of the 1 year warranty period anyways so it really didn't matter for me. Now you want to download some files. Download this recovery and place it on your sdcard: Download this SuperUser and place it on your sdcard: Download this for the removal of knox and place it on your sdcard: After downloading these items the first step will be flashing the tar version recovery in odin. If you haven't already done so hit the reset button on Odin. Press the PDA button and navigate to that SU folder that you unzipped from the previous section and find the recovery and open it. It looks like this: recovery-clockwork-touch- If you weren't able to check the auto reboot box it might work now so check it. So its the same thing as flashing the stock Odin file. Place your phone in download mode (while off press and hold vol down, home, and power buttons). Connect your phone to computer and look for the COM:6 thing then hit start. This should take seconds. When phone reboots or it says pass you can disconnect and pull battery if need be. Now you have a custom recovery and now you do the rest on your phone. The next steps I think is the order I went (didn't plan on writing this so I don't remember). Now power off your phone and boot into recovery (vol up, home,and power button at the same time). Look for install zip from sdcard. First (for sure) find the recovery ( and install this. Now back up and go to advanced tab and reboot into recovery. At this point it should ask to fix root, say yes of course. When it boots back into recovery install from sdcard again. Find the and install that. I would reboot back into recovery again to be safe and the flash the knox removal zip (TrulyClean_TEST3_v3.0.2_HARDCORE_NEW-MOREdoo-doo_Knox_Only). Then you can reboot into the system. Now I checked root with titanium backup and it still wasn't good. So I then went to play store and downloaded newest version of SuperSu by chainfire (2.01, at the time I downloaded it). I installed that and All was rooted. Here's a link: On a side note the Knox removal may be optional. I don't know for sure. I just did it cause who wants that crap on there phone anyways. Also this is the first guide I've written for any phone related stuff so go easy on me if it looks like a jumbled up mess. I did not create or come up with any of the information in this guide, I just wanted to bring all this stuff into one thread cause I had to do a lot of searching and learning.I hope I didn't break any rules by posting these links here. Just trying to help. So with that we should all thank the devs for all there hard work and contributions. More specifically: NA7Q, WoundTight, Bru_1, Snodrog742, and iRub1Out for which is the threads I found all the links and received help from. I've been running this stock set-up for close to a week now and not a single problem. Battery life is great, no data issues, and not a whole lot of lagging issues. Which were all the problems I was having previous to installing this.

  5. SIM Card corrupted!

    Is there any way to edit the parameters on a SIM card? Mine got corrupted and is missing the following info; Phone number, Subscriber ID, Sm country ISO, SIM Operator, Network Country ISO, Network Operator, Network Operator Name, Network Type. I have all this information saved elseware so is it possible to just program it back in? The wierd thing is that I still get 3G, not sure about 4G (not in my area). In anything but the stock ROM the connection square in the quick settings menu just has 3G with 3 bars, I get data but no phone or MMS, and the Carrier spot says empty. I flashed my phone's modem to the one for 4.3+ to get the new networking stuff but this didn't solve the problem, I tried the card in another phone and it told me the same thing. SIM card doesn't connect regardless of kernel or ROM. I'm currently using the SCH-R970.
  6. ROM thread found here:

  9. I have a surprise for you S3 people. Here's a hint. Well now that the cat is out of the bag so to speak, I'll post my Unofficial CM 11 build for those that want to see CM 11 and KitKat 4.4. This is not a daily driver, so don't expect that! Post #4 is the post of things working, not working, and not tested: Now, some of you may have heard of ART (Android RunTime) over Dalvik. ART can be enabled in Settings - Development. Your phone will reboot to switch from Dalvik to ART. Read about it here: Now there's an issue: Using 4.4 gapps breaks ART, and causes TONS of app force closing. You need to flash ODEXED gapps for ART to work properly. Those will be attached to this post. If you don't adjust from Dalvik to ART, flash any 4.4 gapps. There's a trick too, so read below. READ THE FOLLOWING BELOW IN ITS ENTIRETY PLEASE BEFORE FLASHING! TWRP recovery will NOT flash this, you'll need CWM (you'll get errors with TWRP). The flashable CWM zip is the Touch version. Do this BEFORE wiping you data/factory reset. Reboot to CWM recovery. Make a backup of your current ROM with CWM recovery, this will make it much easier to revert back as CWM will not restore TWRP backups. Wipe wipe wipe! 4.3 to 4.4 is a big enough change where you CANNOT flash over. Don't do it. Do a factory reset, dalvik, cache, and /system wipes. Flash the 4.4 ROM. If you want to try ART out, DO NOT FLASH GAPPS YET! NOTE HERE: If you do NOT plan on enabling ART and want deodexed gapps for 4.4, please download PA's gapps from here and you can flash before rebooting: Reboot the phone, do the setup stuff. At this point if you want to enable ART, do so, and your device will reboot. Once rebooted, reboot to recovery and flash gapps. Log into Google and play around. Please don't post about ETA's for fixes and things like that, since this is a alpha/beta version of CM 11, the things not working are posted in Post #4. This is not meant to be a daily driver at this time. Disclaimer: #include/** Your warranty is now void.** I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, dead cats,* thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.* YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will break it! * Act accordingly*/Thanks to: Cyanogen, Koush, CyanogenMod, and all device maintainers for their efforts and work in the custom ROM scene. Those guys work round the clock and tirelessly to fix bugs, add features, and make things run as smooth as possible. Paranoid Android for their Gapps package, and the work that they do for the custom ROM scene. Big thanks to jdlogan151 (Transformer Prime, Droid Incredible, XDA days) for the our brainstorming session. A great friend, and we've had some good times with more to come! If it wasn't for his impatience to run KK on his T-Mo S3 we wouldn't have it for our variant, so thanks again for the passion and drive buddy!
