The plot thickens... MH8 for the UK has just been released by Samsung and has the same changelist as the MGG firmware. I don't know if this will come with the same problems that DjeMBeY is encountering with MGG. We shall see!

For once, if it is released, think I might wait for a while before flashing to see how the land lies....

As some old boy keeps saying, flash in haste.....

Wise words indeed! He must be a truly intelligent, handsome and virile young man.

To be honest, I shan't rush in to flash a new ROM until a 3Minit framework is released for it as I find it too useful to go without.

Indeed wise words, but it wasn't me that uttered them.

Seriously the amount of new/different firmwares coming out is ridiculous. Good, great in fact, but to have a bash at every one would be silly. Liking MH1 so sticking to it. I think I'll stick with it until an official release of 4.3 is deodexed and tweaked.

One of the newer releases will hopefully feature a fix for the, "Chinese Master Key", exploit.

In all honesty 3minit is what keeps me from going back to stock. This phone is just so damn awesome regardless.

Indeed, the official new name of the next version of Android, tie in with Nestle.


Personally I'm now speculating what is next Android licorice (American spelling - of course).

But I don't understand Ironass, does your signature not apply to sloths? (TIC).

Seriously, a locked bootloader with no way back would have me selling my SGS4 and getting another, hopefully on old firmware. I know without brave (foolish?) flash happy folks we would not have anything to flash, and someone has to be first, but we be waited a while, a while longer to see if this is the real deal cannot hurt.

Do you mean my motto?...

"ironass motto... "Flash in haste... repent at leisure" "

Doesn't apply to someone like Syd... brave, fearless, intrepid, courageous, heroic, daring, fearless and above all else...

Update from DjeMBeY...

"KNOX Warranty status should stay untouched but I can't test it as mine was triggered in past...
Bootloader CAN'T be downgraded so it's still one-way street but now with Root Access

XXUDMH8 - Odin Version - UPLOADING in progress...

I'm working on XXUDMH8 - CWM Version with STOCK Kernel... It should work though...

Yes I meant motto. While we all need a test pilot we need a rich enough test pilot who can afford to hard brick their device or not be bothered about being unable to do fun things (unlikely as they wouldn't flash in the first place). What we need is for me to win tonight's lotto, and spend eight hours a day flashing very dodgy things to a pile of SGS4's just to see if stuff works.

If fate will grant me that rollover tonight I would indeed do that, for a while anyway, provided my yacht could get good 4G in the Seychelles.

Oh beeswallox. And I thought this might be the real deal. Thanks Samsung, pandering to the corporate world with your locked bootloaders and Knox security (that happens to tell you if we have used our phones as we see fit, but you don't like)

DjeMBeY has released two stock, pre-rooted ROM's, see #1.1 in post #1 of this thread, for MH8 and MI1.

Both of these have the new bootloader and will increase the new Knox security counter.

These ROM's are recommended for those who are on the latest, bootlocked and Knox enhanced, stock firmwares and are desperate to root their phone's or just don't give a fig about the new bootloader and Knox counter.

Changelist for these is 1220396. The same as MGG, MH5, MH6, MH7 and MH9.

Download

More information on the latest bootloaders and Knox...

Will answer my own question.....looks like it does have it built in, but obviously it may be removed in the rooted versions. Here is a link if anyone wants the stock one :-)

I've not read anything further but going by the bit I've copied then it doesn't have the bootloader so should be Knox safe?

Edit: had a glance and several people who were on mga bootloader have issues with Wi-Fi etc while those who have been on newer locked bootloader have been fine!

Hmm, it's October surely time for a Kit - Kat leak? I might try that, but not another JB. I need a chocolate fix.

Im dying for something new. Sick of Screen mirroring not working when indie apps find my TV every time or my cam app causing my phone to reboot or Fonts appearing as little white squares.

So tempted to just hit the Stock button.

Both ROM's are flashable via Odin and contain Knox and will increment the Knox counter to 0/1, if you haven't already done so. Both ROM's are fully reversible to post MGG>, Android 4.2.2.

These are suitable for anyone who is already on MGG> or doesn't give a fig about the Knox counter.

after a bit of reading on xda (yes, even I'm being a little more cautious these days), it seems DJembey is suuggesting it's not worth upgrading to this leakied ROM if you're still on an older unlocked bootloader.......so gonna pass for now.

have been keeping an eye on things on XDA today, and WHAT A DOGS DINNER THIS IS ALL TURNING OUT TO BE. posters are reporting all sorts of inconsistent results from flashing newer roms. seems to depend on what you came from, but not always! sometimes the knox counter is triggered, sometimes it's not. some have lots of glitches. some cant get wifi or custom recoveries to work........

after the simple days of S2 this all seems far from smooth

I'm just glad I stuck with MH1 and that i've got a smoothly running, rooted, great performing phone with fab battery life. the dust has really got to settle for me to move at the moment.

is this the end of our flashing days........

Nothing has been as simple as the good old s2 days, however, we will prevail and continue to flash ;-)

I'm sure that there have been issues from day 1 with Wi-Fi etc so it's no real surprise there still is with the Knox issue added into the equation.

What we may find, is that if people start having issues and have voided warranty via Knox, then there may be an upsurge of insurance claims, however I for one will continue to flash, just awaiting more knowledge on Knox before going back to newer stock I'm fine with aosp based Roms for now but always get the urge to flash back to stock, if I do, it'll be an older version!

My guess is that because of the Knox situation, people are not following best practice when it comes to switching from Android 4.2.2 to Android 4.3. This would normally be to flash the stock. 4.3, Samsung firmware first before flashing the new ROM. This would give a firm base line for custom ROM flashing. However, in the hope of dodging the Knox bullet, I feel that many of them have been just flashing over the top of 4.2.2 and hoping for the best... with predictable results.

Hense why I said more than ever the need for flashing correctly. Some people just love to chance it.

Decisions decisions!

I really dont know what to do at the moment. As MGA has been brilliant for me I don't like the thought of not being able go back to this if I no likey MJ5.

I think I shall let the guinea pigs (no names mentioned Syd) at it for a week or so first......

UThis post from xda sums things up brilliantly, replying to a question someone posed about flashing the new mj5 on the old bootloader:

"You can flash with odin MJ5 and you flag shoud remain 0x0, but you will be stuck with new bootloader.
Problem with rooting ROM with new bootloader is solved, so you can root and still not trigger knox flag if you folow guides here.
But, if you try change bootloader or flash custom recovery or custom kernel you will trigger knox flag.
So it is better solution wait CWM version with custom kernel and with old bootloader because you will be knox free and have more opportunities. Combination of old bootloader and custom kernel are obligation, because old bootloader and stock 4.3 kernel symply won't work (wifi and sound problem).
Clear?"

So this new version still does not allow you to use custom recovery and stay Knox free.

Seems echoe rom is the best option for now for those of us on old bootloader wanting to try 4.3, once the updated version with the new stock kernel is released....

Default A light at the end of the tunnel?

I do not want to get anyone's hopes up but there may be a light at the end of the Knox tunnel. This is an extract from the revised post #1 of DjeMBeY...

"Important Update: 17.10.2013

I'm not sure if anybody have noticed but yesterday my thread for NOTE 3 has been locked down, and all my stuff (for Odin) has been removed! It looks like Dev designgears don't like me, and I was reported and locked but funny enough, there was NO VEGA ROM's nor Root_de_la-Vega files in my thread at all!!
I went mental and my reaction nearly costed me my Contributor title..
Anyway, once pushed hard, I came up with something new.. I've explored "VEGA EXPLOIT" and realized that it is just tip of an Iceberg! You can do many, many things using this "EXPLOIT Window" which works like backdoor access to your phone....
So, here we go...

From NOW ON, my KNOX_0x0 ROM's are called MEGA ROM's and they will be patched with KNOX_0x0 (key) and can be used with my KNOX_0x0 auto-scripts ONLY!!!
De_La_Vega_Root Script DOESN'T work on MEGA ROM's!! Delete it please....I'm sorry for any incovenience
Auto-Script's basically works like "custom recovery" without need for one.. Modifications to System Partition ONLY!

Be careful as going too far with System modifications WILL trigger KNOX flag to 0x1!!!!

This is how it works, for example, copy KNOX_0x0_XPOSED_SLIM to your internal SD and after just ONE REBOOT it will:
- remove old root& busybox
- BackUp & Remove KNOX apps
- BackUp & Remove most of Bloatware (backup will be created on /sdcard/KNOX_0x0_XPOSED_SLIM/BackUp - 370MB - JB 4.2.2 & 4.3)
- Root with latest Superuser
- install busybox
- install latest Xposed Installer as System app
- install Wanam Xposed as System app

Reboot again to make Superuser work correctly..

More Auto-Scripts coming sooon, including DeOdexed Slim Script ....
"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Updated 18.10.2013

ATTENTION PLEASE:


There's something weird going on with MEGA MJ5 and KNOX 0x0... So far, I had 4 reports that flag tripped to 0x1 and most-likely it was connected with Xposed Installer and Wanam Xposed.. Too much messing with Xposed's and it WILL trip... As you know, my KNOX is 0x1 so I can't test it..
It looks like this New Bootloader and Kernel got more sensitive/secured and this may cause more trouble in future...
I've checked Note 3 thread with Root_De_La_Vega and same thing, few people with tripped KNOX.. Really confusing is fact that in some cases it tripped after flashing Stock FW on top of Rooted one..
This is a bit worrying to me and I'll try to find out why it trips and how we can stop it.... Method itself is KNOX-Friendly but it looks like additional modifications are messing things up... Hopefully near future will clear some still unanswered questions..
BTW, I don't take any responsibility for tripped flags. Take it or leave it... as usually..
"

This would seem to be at least a step in the right direction. What do you all think?

whoopiedooo

still cant flash custom recovery without triggering knox tho

i dont understand how echoe can offer new roms bootloader/knox free but djembey cant

it seems like djembey is making a bit of a meal of it all. that's highly critical i know, coz his roms are fab and he's working hard for a solution, and his abilities are way above anything most of us mere mortals are capable of....it just all seems a bit convoluted at the moment.

(out of sarcy mode, yup looking more and more positive that the solution is round the corner......am gonna try echoe when ive finished reading the dozens of pages on xda, but will defo go back to djembey when he gets things sorted)

I think that what DjeMBeY is trying to do is come up with a ROM that will suit both those with the pre MGG, locked bootloader and Knox Security, and do not want a locked bootloader and Knox and those who are on the post MGG firmware and do not wish to blow the Knox counter. No mean feat.

I have amended my previous post to give a warning that the Knox fixes that worked on the leaked 4.3 ROM, MJ3, seem to be fubarred on the official release for 4.3, MJ5, because it has a further modified bootloader and kernel. This is to be expected from Samsung/Knox I suppose, as soon as an exploit is found.

DjeMBeY Slim M9 CWM ROM, no Knox, is up!!

Kernel: Stock SELinux Perissive v1.2 (29.10) - CREDITS to talexop
Build Date: 26.10.2013

Original Stock ROM: Download: <<< Hotfile >>>
Pre-Rooted ROM (CWM): Downloads: <<< AFH >>> or <<< MEGA >>>
XXUEMJ9 WiFi_FIX - DOWNLOAD: <<< Dev-Host >>>
Source

Flashed this yesterday and I don't regret it for one instant.

Larger than Echoe Slim ROM, this ROM from DjeMBeY has less apps removed. Which is no bad thing, IMHO. No fancy bits and pieces. It is all stock and Knox free!

As I was coming from Echoe ROM, I decided on a clean install and followed the ROM installation instructions.

1. I installed the XXUEMJ9 modem using Odin and rebooted to check all was well.

2. I booted into PhilZ recovery and used the, "Clean to Install a New ROM", feature in PhilZ, under "Wipe Data/Factory Reset", that Syd mentioned, as I wanted to give it a try.

3. I then immediately flashed the DjeMBeY Pre-Rooted CWM M9 ROM that I had previously placed the .zip file on my SDcard, whilst still in PhilZ recovery.

4. After it re-booted I set about letting Google sync and Titanium Backup do their stuff and I was good to go, although I did freeze some unwanted apps using TB.

Everything seems to be working just fine. The stock kernel is very smooth and battery friendly and in the short time that I have been using this ROM, it has not disappointed.

One thing that I had problems with on Echoe was that my Handcent messaging was very slow to send MMS's. I guess it didn't like some of the mods. No such problem here though. Also my blutooth connections are very fast. GPS is spot on. Xposed framework and Wanam Xposed both work faultlessly on this ROM and even retained my settings after a reboot. Wi-Fi is as strong as ever and the MJ9 modem is giving me a very strong signal. One word of caution... if you are on an old, unlocked bootloader, like me, do not use the Wi-Fi fix. Just flash the modem again.

I must say, flashing a DjeMBeY ROM again was like coming home and I will give this a run for its money.

You talked me into it. Not sure if its the djembey effect or mj9 effect, but seems slicker. Nice having everything just working and no fancy dev mods. Quite happy I took your lead.....

I knew I could get you to bite Syd!

My issue with the latest Echoe Slim Roms is that they were far from stock and included all sorts of mods that I spent time getting rid of, like the full screen caller and transparent contacts, settings, etc; all of which were not my cup of tea. Not to mention the problems I had in trying to get Handcent to work with the SMS mods and group and MMS messages.

I'm finding, like you, that this DjeMBeY Slim ROM is very slick and out of curiousity, I flashed the faux123 kernel to it yesterday and am, so far, very pleased with the results.

It only remains for me to keep dangling my worm in front of Hawker who, last I heard, is on the Echoe ROM v8, MJ9. After Wales's long awaited win, over Argentina, in rugby yesterday, I doubt that there's much chance of him being in any fit state to do anything for at least 48 hours. We shall see. Besides, after their win, the Welsh rugby club are looking for a cleaner now... to polish their trophy and knowing the old boy, he's probably put his missus forward for the job!

Whilst I really like the no nonsense talexop kernel that comes with DjeMBeY's ROM, for me and my uses, battery saving, the faux123, so far, is proving to have the edge on both performance and battery, particularly with the screen-on readings. This is with completely default settings in Trickster, apart from the scheduler which is set to noop and not cfq. My governor is still ondemand as I am on Power Saving all the time and I do not think intellidemand is quite the one for that. Early days yet before I decide.

Two things I have noticed since being on the DjeMBeY Slim M9 ROM are...

1. The Transition animation scale in Developer options which on all other ROMs kept reverting to 1x on reboot, now sticks at 0.5x. I don't know if this is a Samsung M9 fix or down to DjeMBeY.

2. The M9 modem, i9505XXUEMJ9, is giving me a better signal in all locations and times of day... even the Twilight Zone! I am always cautious about modems and most of the JB ones that I have tried have all been roughly in the same ball park. However, in the last 4 days I have noticed that in differing locations and times, I have been getting a better signal than usual. OK, its not a staggering difference, about -2dBm or -3dBm and 2asu or 3asu on average at my desk at home but every little bit helps! I should mention that that is on HSPA with the web browser open and using Network Signal Info. No LTE/4G here in Miss Marple land.
