Tips for using this Dummies Guide.
I have tried to keep this, "Dummies Guide
", as simple and easy to understand as possible for absolute beginners, with no prior knowledge of Android and the Samsung Galaxy S4
, whilst trying to cover the most commonly asked questions about rooting.
Please take the time to read posts #1
, and #2 carefully and thoroughly before posting a question
as they should contain most of the answers you require.
If a reply to a question states, "See, #1.7
". It means that the answer to your query is already contained in post #1
, item #7
. Re-read that item again, carefully, and it should answer your question and saves the time and trouble of having to repeat things all over again.
When posting a question you must
include your phone, "Version
", details as shown in #2.4
as well as the DjeMBeY ROM
you are flashing.
Please, please, please, help keep this thread on topic
. It is designated for the actual flashing of DjeMBeY ROM's
to your phone and not for general questions about custom kernels, other custom ROMs, Kies connection problems, apps, nandroid backups and restores, etc: There are other threads on the forum for that or you can start one of your own.
Please do not PM me with questions. I will not reply
. Ask them on the forum so that others may benefit from the questions and answers or post a question on the DjeMBeY ROM's
Rooting your phone could, in theory, void your warranty in certain cases. Also, you will no longer be able to update your phone via Kies or OTA, (Over The Air), in some cases and will need to flash ROM's via Odin or CWM Recovery... which is probably why you rooted anyway!
