I would like to reset my S4 to factory settings and I'd like someone who could help me with each problem I run into while doing as I already have tried and can not figure it out, thanks to anyone willing to help
RMarkwald posted a topic in Galaxy S III Guides/TutorialsThank you Chainfire for d2usc (USC SGS3) support for our device, and this app! This is nothing against Rub1Out's guide, or anyone else's on this forum. I've used their guides as well without issue. This is simply another means to get back to stock, and I'm feeling nice today. There is a this trend of users who don't know what they are doing, don't know what basic terms mean, and chances are, haven't done any reading of any kind before the attempt to root/unroot a device. Even with the guides here, the complaints are either they are "confusing" or "not enough info"...which, IMO, is untrue. I've seen users flash Verizon stock software to their USC device, load a Verizon bootloader, flash other carrier ROMs...the list goes on. If you cannot read an OP thread for directions, then you shouldn't be attempting to do what you're about to do. You should learn how to undo what you're doing BEFORE it's too late. If I say adb, ODIN, tar.md5, Android SDK, Recovery...there should be some familiarization with those terms. Just because you used a toolkit to root your phone doesn't give anyone the excuse to not know those terms. Even with a toolkit, you need to know...well...how to use the toolkit. If you are against paying for an app, then this method is NOT for you. ChainFire offers this for free, but the EverRoot option is only in the paid for version. This takes less than five minutes to do, and does not require a computer. I'm done with that thought, it could go on...and on. What you need to download ODIN .tar.md5 file for either LG4, LI4, LK5 (LK5 is the Jelly Bean 4.1.1 update as of Dec 2012). NOTE: The .tar.md5 files are HUGE, 1 - 1.2 GB (LK5 is 1.2 GB)!! LK5 update, Samsung SimpleUpgraderTool: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/SupportOwnersFAQPopup.do?faq_id=FAQ00049096&fm_seq=53670 NOTE: The file is like 854MB. Scroll down the page and hit the big black DOWNLOAD button, located at Step 1 of the guide from the link above. Mobile Odin app from Google Play (buy it, it's more than worth it) - https://play.google....251bGwsMSwyLDNd Instructions NOTE: You need to be rooted to run Mobile Odin. I shouldn't have to say it, but I have to say it. NOTE 2: If you downloaded the .exe file from USC or Samsung, the tar.md5 file you need will be in that. You'll need to browse your computer to the following location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Samsung Electronics\SimpleUpgradeTool\SCH-R530U_USCC\Binary. The Program Files (x86) folder will ONLY be there if you run a 64-bit Windows system. NOTE 3: There's two .tar.md5 files out there, if you downloaded it from Samsung, the file name will start with KIES_blahblah.tar.md5. This will NOT wipe your internal sd card. The other file name will start with COMBINATION_blahblah.tar.md5, and this WILL format internal sd!! So backup internal sd if you want to save pictures/music/other files just to be safe. You've been warned! 1. Take the tar.md5 ODIN file, and copy it to either your internal or external sd card. This is the ONLY part you'll need a computer for, and if you never delete it, you'll never need your computer again. For the love of my sanity, put it in a folder where you know it will be. I recommend external sd card and here's why: Your internal will be wiped with the official .tar.md5 for the LK5 update!!! 2. Open Mobile Odin. Grant it root access. If it asks for add-on download, turn on your wifi and say OK. 3. Scroll down to Open file..., click it, then browse to internal or external sd card based off of where you put the tar.md5 file. Select your .tar.md5 file. 4. It'll tell you what it's flashing, just hit OK. 5. THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP, SO PAY ATTENTION: If you want root, check all 3 boxes under the EverRoot heading. (Enable EverRoot, Inject SuperSU, Inject Mobile Odin). Under the Wipe heading, check Wipe data and cache and Wipe dalvik cache. What you have now is the stock USC Odin file, which will load and Mobile Odin will root it. 6. Hit Flash Firmware. Wait a couple minutes, and you'll be 100% USC Stock ROM, rooted (or not if you choose not to root). Any time you are on an AOSP ROM or any other ROM, and you want 100% stock USC, repeat steps 2 - 6. It's that simple. If rooted, from there you can flash a custom recovery, and begin the ROM flashing process or if you need to make backups of your stock rooted setup. There it is people, you cannot get any easier than this. This thread will be locked, and you can PM me if you have problems. All of the information is there, and these are the exact steps I use when I want 100% rooted/stock USC TouchWiz.
