Ironass I could have used that information last night
Tried to install cyanogenmod rom 10.2 for international 19505. Had a BIG scare. I am using twrp as it looked easier to use. The install failed and the phone would not boot. Managed to get into recovery and tried to recover my last backup but it just sat on archive for a long time. Not sure how long I am meant to wait at that stage but after about 10 minutes of sitting on that one particular point I pulled the battery and booted to recovery again. Luckily I had downloaded and transferred the omega rom to my phone prior to all this. I managed to install the omega rom but the wifi would not work. I ended up having to flash a different kernel (I used the faux123 kernel) and that solved the wifi issue.
Can anyone recommend a better rom that has been successful on the international gt19505 model s4?
Also is faux123 kernel any good or is there a better kernel to use to fix the wifi issue.
If I wanted to try clockworkmod now how do I go about flashing over twrp. Is there something I have to do first to remove twrp. What are your thoughts on twrp?
Also when finding the correct omega rom it was for the gt-19505 and stated my baseband version ie 19505-XXUBMH1. Why when you look for the cyanogen mod do you only need to know that the phone is a gt19505 international version.? Are you meant to know the addition information when searching for a rom because most only state - compatibility gt-19505 lte. And some just say Gt - 19505 and give no variants so how are you mean't to know which is for your specific model half the time. PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND THIS, UNTIL I DO I CAN'T REALLY EXPLORE THE WORLD OF CUSTOM ROMS
I know I am asking ALOT of questions but this is my first time using ANY of these programs and I have never rooted before so all of your help has been greatly appreciated.
