Default Help me please!

Hi im tryin to use triangle away to clear my counter but it wont go onto it just keeps saying loadin im also getting something now sayin about prevention information. I have to send my phone back as the battery is goin awol keeps switchin off and saying random charge amounts. I kno its not the actual battery or the charger as ive tested them. it will say like 87% then I switch it off and on and the charge will go to zero its really strange, never know it before. please can someone help me I need to send it off but ive voided the warranty with rooting it and triangle will not work.

I am more than a little confused Amylee3130!

Have I got this right?

Looking at your various threads it would seem that you owned a stock, unbranded, S4 on the MGA firmware...

Rooting samsung galaxy s4 please help

Which you the rooted successfully on the 14th August.

You then had a problem on the 28th August, using ROM Toolbox Pro on the stock EE, (Orange), firmware...

Advice please on roms

where it was suggested that you needed to change your ROM to get it to work or alternatively flash the DjeMBeY, modified, deodexed, ROM with the 3Minit framework to achieve your goal.

I'm guessing that you didn't do either of those things as your next thread on the 3rd September...

Help me please

Shows that you possibly flashed the FULL stock, ODEXED, MGA ROM by DjeMBeY, as opposed to the stock, DEODEXED, MODIFIED ROM as suggested earlier.

For whatever reason, you did not appear to be rooted using whichever ROM as shown in your 5th September post...

I need help please x

You then appear to have flashed back to your original, unrooted, stock ROM, as per your post on the 11th September...

Battery help plz x

You then seem to have had a problem with your phone switching off in your thread of the 12th September...

Phone switching off!

You now appear to be having a problem in using Triangle Away on your thread for today.

However, as stated in your earlier thread, you are now on stock, unrooted, firmware and Triangle Away will not work on un-rooted phones.

To help clarify things, could you go to your dial pad and type in...

*#1234#

This will bring up 3 lines of information under, "Version". Please give those 3 lines of information and can you confirm that you are on a stock firmware with no root as suggested by an earlier post.

Next, can you bookmark the All Things Root section for the Samsung Galaxy S4, so that you do not post elsewhere again.

Armed with the above requested details, I, or one of my colleagues, should be able to help you further. My biggest fear is that you may have flashed one of the latest stock firmwares with the locked bootloader and Knox security. We shall see!

Just as I thought I am afraid. You have flashed the latest stock firmware, MH8, with locked bootloader and Knox security. See, "Locked bootloader & Knox security on latest firmwares".

You cannot use nandroids, the old rooting method, Triangle Away or Mobile Odin on this firmware at the moment.

Your options are very limited in this situation as your bootloader is now locked and Knox security has been enabled, hence the warnings!.

Your phone should now not be rooted as you have flashed a stock firmware which contains the stock, un-rooted, kernel... or did you try to root it again?

I will not ask anymore questions as I'm afraid of the answers!

My advice is that you do a Full Monty to at least get you back to normal...

1. Back up everything on your phone and sd card.

2. Format your internal memory and sd card memory.

3. Factory reset your phone and re-flash the stock Samsung MH8 firmware to get rid of the aborted root.

4. Re-boot your phone and re-download your apps but NOT the settings. These you will need to do again, afresh.

5. Put your sd card in after turning your phone off and the re-boot. After this you can copy all your data, music, photo's, etc; back on but not any settings.

I am afraid that this will not unlock your bootloader or get rid of Knox but at least you should have a working phone that may be able to be rooted in the future and accept custom ROMs.

"Losing your phone", is not something I can condone on this forum. Besides which, with your luck, you will get another one with MH8 firmware on and you would be where you are now!

Warranty/Insurance Fraud = Bad & Illegal, so let's avoid discussing that topic, alright?
