Is it possible to ODIN the phone back to the previous update so that you can root the device?
I just got my s4 less then a week ago and it was already at MF3 :(
Having some issues with my Samsun Stellar... I couldn't load the 4.1.2 JB Update from Verizon on my rooted Stellar... So I tried to first 1) un-root then 2) flash back to the stock ROM then update. Option 1 didn't work, but Option 2 did.... Odin to stock rom, 1 small OTA update, then the JB OTA... worked like a charm. But once I got to JB, I couldn't re-root my phone.
I have the Samsung Galaxy S3 GT- i9305 and I just tried rooting my phone. Everything passed on the Odin until I rebooted my phone. I installed Root Checker and it says "Sorry this device does not have proper root access."
**Will not root this device. Will verify proper root installation.
Can anyone help me please?
I want to root my device with odin and chainfire. I know this basically leaves my recovery
untouched and modifies some system files so as to allow root apps to install themselves
in a way that they can run with root permssion.
1. I would like to know more about exactly what changes this kind of rooting does to the
device's file system.
I recently flashed the ND8 stock and am attempting to get root using the CF auto root. Odin tells me that everything has has finished properly. When I restart the phone the auto-root appears to complete, then the phone restarts. Root checker says no root.
I have tried different cables, usb ports, computers.
1) install supersu from teh market
2) power down your device, press and hold home and volume down then press power
3) youll be greeted with a warning screen, press up to continue
4) load up odin and click on pda to load the rooted kernel tar
5) connect your device and wait until you see a blue box with a com number
6) click start
7) when it boots up, ena
Needing some help here guys, I've got a Verizon SCH-i605.
Phone was originally rooted and unlocked with casual when first released. Phone had always been on stock rom with root and custom recovery. Prior to the 4.1.2 OTA Update from Verizon I flashed factory Recovery followed by using Root Keeper to keep root and successfully updated to 4.1.2.
I somehow one-click rooted my Nexus 5 (without a computer) but want to unroot. If I go to Settings >>,About Device >> Update and install an update if there is one, will it delete root or get stuck on the boot logo because I'm root? I don't want to have issues but I also don't want root.
First let me explain. My Boost Mobile Galaxy S2 (Epic Touch 4G) has been flashed to hell and back with over 40 different roms. Over the last 10 days my phone was rebooting and throwing errors while on Cyanogenmod 11 Dailies. So I tried to flash to a previous version when during the flash it turned off and soft bricked.
