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 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.
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 tried to root my phone :( and i am having some major issues.
i followed the instructions to a T im using Odin307 with Root66_VZW_stock Rom to root my phone. on the screen halfway through the process the progress bar stops about half way and i get the following error. i have tried several troubleshooting methods.
so i did root for the first time for myself on my S3 LTE GT-i9305.. so i follow all the common step properly as shown in Youtube channels.. like enable USB Debugging, on Odin mode, plug in to comp, extracts the folders of Odin app and Root file, open source Root file on PDA tab, check on Auto Reboot n F.
I have a Verizon Galaxy Note 2(sch-i605). I found the right root files for my phone and flashed a custom ROM onto it using Odin. Now i want to flash a STOCK ROM back onto my phone but Odin won't recognize any of the files.
Hi, I've had my N3 for a week now, I was going to wait until development had matured for this device, but not having root is really bugging me. Question is, what is the best Knox 0x0 root for MJ4? I'm not entirely averse to tripping Knox, but I'd like to leave that for at least a while longer.
I've read the threads here exhaustively, and this is my understanding of the current landscape.
my power button broke, and the only way to power it back up is to install the carrier rom via odin, which makes my device outdated and unrooted, Ive downloaded Button remapper so I could switch the power key with something else, but it asks for full root access, is there any way to root my phone via odin, or just without recovery mode?
