First Post (Oooorah)
So I am having some issues here with flashing my Samsung GS4. I acquired a device when they first came out from Telecom NZ, and am really loving it. Much better than the iCrap that is available in my opinion (had both iPhone 5 & GS4)
I had previously had a Samsung GS2 when they came out a few years ago as well. Great phone, and when I had that one I had wondered about flashing it to gain root access to it.
Now that I have another droid and want to do more with it, I kind of need to have root access, as I want to get rid of the significant amount of bloatware and flash a custom ROM onto my device.
So I have been reading through ovesees forums and watching a few hours of YouTube about flashing it to gain root access. Pretty comfortable I know what I need to do.
So, I set about trying to flash my device with Clockwork Mod (cwm) through ODIN this afternoon. Now unfortunately I am getting the below out put and I have literally no idea why
<ID:0/007> Odin v.3 engine (ID:7)..
<ID:0/007> File analysis..
<ID:0/007> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/007> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/007> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/007> Complete(Write) operation failed.
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
as it seems I need a recovery ROM or PDA to gain root access this seems to be a fundamental issue with the root access process.
Can any of my fellow GeekZoners lend an assist? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
All the best
