I originally flashed PhilZ 5.10.8 .zip file via Recovery, after cache and dalvik wipes, and encountered the reboot/shutdown problem, whereby it would shut down instead of rebooting itself and needed to be started manually.

I then re-flashed the PhilZ 5.10.8 .tar file via Odin and this cured the problem.

Personally, I do not think it was using the .tar file... I think it just needs to be flashed twice in some cases.

I tried reflashing the zip a few times last night butty, but this made no difference.
Tried an Odin flash, and this made no difference neither.

Knowing Phil, I expect an update will be along soon.

These are the exact reasons I've not updated since 5.08.5, I've found it to be most stable, flash everything I've asked of it first time and finds my sd card and has created several usable backups on my sd card(I've never reformatted it!) I did try a version of the official cwm that was recommended/required to flash probam aokp 4.3, but it didn't find my sd card!

Humour me please, Hawker, old stick... could you do a ROM Manager, Fix Permissions, for me and see if that makes a difference. Takes about 5 minutes.

I tried for you old boy, coz I know the old Welsh git is a little unreliable and, as demonstrated by the speed in which he got his scripts out, not always the quickest to respond....

Did as you said. It made no difference to my ability to reboot from recovery. It did however bugger up my 3minit settings. Don't worry, the solicitors won't be calling, managed to get them back.

A fix permissions screwed up my current rom/3minit setup...battery icon went back to stock, all homescreen widgets blacked out.
Luckily I did a cwm backup beforehand as I couldn't be bothered with all that faffing around.

How odd! All that happened for me was that I had to reset the clock in Fancy Widgets and do a restore on 3Minit settings. All my other widgets were fine. It was the only other thing that I remember doing after my original PhilZ problem. Oh, well, so long as you did not take my name in vain.

5.11.2 always shows time as 00:00 for me every time I boot into recovery.
Its a lottery

Phil isn't going to address this problem until he gets an S4 of his own.

By the way, an Orange backup for my 3Gb backup takes 8 minutes.

Yes my time stays at 00:00 as well with 5.11.2.

Just to show how much bloat ware can be got rid of my first Nandroid was with stock Vodafone ROM (obviously rooted and Philz flashed) all my apps redownloaded from play store and all my settings how I wanted took over 54 minutes and was a huge 4.2 Gig. It's took 17 minutes to restore, and it is a good job it did restore as I borked my phone with 3minit. Lord knows how, that's another thread.

Hawker! Hawker! Hawker! With just a little extra effort you could actually make your update post useful...

1. Nice, bold, size 3, typeface, so that anyone scrolling through this thread can pick up the various releases very quickly. Smiley face is optional.

2. In quotation marks and using italics so that everyone knows you are quoting the dev, you post the changelog.

3. You then offer the download links for everones convenience. Colour coding helps to prevent confusion between the 2 models and follows on from the Dummies Guides, for continuity.

4. You also give the link to the changelog in case anyone would like to read it or access the follow up posts.

So, for the last time...


PhilZ Recovery 5.14.5 is up!

"It is a massive nandroid code rewrite to merge cm-10.2 new wrapper
To enable compression, you have to go again under Misc Nandroid Settings and choose the tar.gz format
I added a new "fast" compression mode too
Now, you can also backup and restore /data/media to external storage
"

Download for i9505, v5.14.5.

Download for i9500, v5.11.2

See... that wasn't so hard was it old stick?

As we are now privvy to ironass the slug, I shall now inform you that there is now Philz 5.14.6 and also 5.14.7 available.

5.14.6:
- remove redundant check for /data/media before custom format of sdcard + merge to cm-10.1
- fix compression value would stuck to "fast" and could actually cause an unexpected very high compression level + merge to cm-10.1
- when key repeat is disabled: fix reboot when turning on screen after it was auto-blanked + merge to cm-10.1
- when key repeat is disabled: fix dim screen will not occur and only blank screen event was triggered + merge to cm-10.1
- fix dim/blank screen issues after reboot timer was reached and USB cable was connected + merge to cm-10.1
- fix various bugs with key pthread lock/unlock (ui_wait_key() and ui_wait_key_with_repeat()) + merge to cm-10.1
- after screen is turned on, next touch event will now be considered (remove ignore_key_action after screen was blanked) + merge to cm-10.1
- more stable blank screen gesture actions (mainly on long press and move gesture) + merge to cm-10.1
This version adds a lot of fixes to touch events handling, key repeat, blank/dim screen timers...

v5.14.7
- fix slow touch response when key repeat is disabled

Bolox to all that font size/bold shite mallarky.

Anybody updated to 5.14.9 yet? I've downloaded the file twice, but when tryinig to flash, I keep getting an error:

"Can't open /external_sd/philz_touch_5.14.9-i9505.zip
(bad)
Installation aborted"

Is it me (I wouldn't be surprised if it is...) or are any of you also having this? I've no problems reading or writing other files to my SD card.

Are you trying to flash a CWM flashable .zip file using Odin?

Ah, something new to flash. Thank You Ironass. I'm about to jump into XDA and see if anything is moving regarding locked bootloaders and bypassing Knox. Probably not, but I can hope.

No, I'm not using Odin, I'm just using Philz own recovery to update it. I've got 5.11.2 running and I just thought I'd update it to the latest version.

Philz Recovery for the Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505) smartphone device for which the version has been numbered 5.16.2 (CWM 6.0.3.9) now appears to be available for digital download on the world wide web.

Here follows the main enhancements of this particular version, according to Phil, the author of the aforementioned software:

This is the first stable cwm touch cm-10.2 release for S4
Supports new vold managed volumes, USB OTG hot plug...

This also has a workaround to let Aroma File Manager see external storage and even USB OTG files if you plug the key before running Aroma
It also should fix ors with new voldmanager


Thank you for reading.

7/10










(Cantankerous old Celt! )


UPDATE

All sorts of problems with this latest version. It doesn't want to recognise my backup path to EXTSDcard that I have always used and I believe, from PhilZ thread, that it does not restore old backups. Reverting to previous version until I have more time to work this one out.

(For..."Work this one out", read... "Until Hawker comes up with an answer!")

Looks like PhilZ 5.16.2 has been withdrawn from Stable Release and moved to a beta folder. See, here.

So, currently, the latest, stable, PhilZ releases are:-

Download for i9505, v5.15.8.

PhilZ Recovery 5.17.1 is up!

"Change log is huge, will post later
I largely tested, include backup efs, delete my efs partition and restore it. Some sweating here, first trial on this S4

I fixed what ever I can think about, include format to ext2 and ext4, Aroma to see USB OTG storage and exfat volumes on the new cm-10.2 vold, backup restore, size detection of all partitions...

Backup speed is unchanged for now, same as 5.16.x cm-10.1 builds. I will fix the logging thing slowing down exfat backups on a next update
"


Download for i9505, v5.17.1.

Download for i9500, v5.15.0

Source


UPDATE

I'll be blowed if I can get this version to work either.... back on v5.15.8

PhilZ Recovery 5.17.6 is up!

"The final stable is here
The menus are changed because of the new vold code in cm-10.2: you can hotplug USB key
Now, backup of 3.5 Gb to internal storage, all stat options enabled, takes around 3 mn (same speed as stock CWM)
Backup to exfat external storage of same data is extremely fast too, around 10mn and maybe less if you have a faster card than my old one

Do not forget to enable all progress stats again in Misc Nandrodi Settings. I tested for you: speed change is about a few seconds only now with or without them

Big thanks to @wanam for providing latest kernel to fit this
Also, @xiaolu for his vold changes to support exfat through ko modules
"




Download for i9505, v5.17.6.

Download for i9500, v5.15.0

Sources, here and here.

UPDATE

Another, "No go", for me, even after changing my Storage in Advanced. Back to v5.15.8.

I'm beginning to wonder that myself!

The fact of the matter is that I have been unable to do a nandroid backup with any PhilZ release after v5.15.8.

I would be interested if anyone else on a stock, modified, ROM has been able to get the latest releases to work with a backup to extSD
