Point taken friedrich and I totally agree that the Echoe ROM itself is Knox and bootloader free but by your own admission you need to flash the stock firmware with locked bootloader and Knox security to enable full functionality of the ROM... Wi-Fi, for instance. I was just pointing out that people needed to read that before progressing if they require a fully functioning ROM.

I suppose the $64,000 question everyone is asking is... what are the chances of the above ROM without the need to flash the stock firmware first?

Its all up to a kernel with 4.4 sources my friend... it shouldnt be long... wuby (from our team) got an older kt kernel to boot yesterday... no wifi but just booting was a huge step. He was going to let ktoonsez know... hopefilly he'll do his magic...

About that knox thing its indeed a catch22... like with the note3.. my rom doesnt have knox but in order to use it u need custom recovery.. flashing custom recovery on a note3 automatically raises ur knox...

The 4.4.2 leak for the N3 just came out.. we'll see how much more different it is compared to the bullshit samsung pulls with the s4..

Wonder if anyone can help. Since I started using Echoe Rom 4.4.2 I cant charge my phone with the phone switched off. If I switch it off it switches itself back on. Does anyone know a way round this?

Yes, you're right kingink65! Same for me on the Echoe GE, 4.4.2, KitKat ROM. Hadn't noticed it before as I never turn my blooming phone off.. just the sound. I can't say if this is a, "feature", of stock Google Edition firmware or not.

Same here for me.

This may present somewhat of a conundrum to our philandering ferrite posterior when he has his little strumpet on the side stay the night, and his phone is down to 1% charge due to his day's incessant browsing of "biology films".

Charging when phone off only works if on the new bootloader, which I suspect kingink65 is still on (I certainly know the old cheeseroller is) as am I.

The first of many more little quirks that will no doubt appear as long as we stay on it.

For those of you on the old boot loader wanting to try echoe kk, then wifi is now working, by flashing anthrax kernel, and if it's taking a while to connect then you can flash GE wifi files.

Full details are on the echoe xda thread.

Forgive me old bean, only on first coffee.

When you say the Echoe KitKat ROM, do you mean the ones based on the leaked Samsung KitKat firmware, NA1 and/or NA5?

Also, have you got a link to the anthrax kernel and does this mean that you don't need to flash the stock Samsung KitKat leaked firmware, with Knox and locked bootloader, first?

No hurry for a reply... just going for a shower.


Need more coffee and an aspirin sandwich.

Anthrax kernel post
I'm not 100% sure if its for NA1 only, but as Friedrich has said this:
Anthrax kernel + Echoe v14= WIFI no matter what bootloader you are!!! this would suggest it works on NA5 also.
However, it appears the XDA thread for it is closed for some reason

Post for if wifi takes long to connect

God! It's liking pulling teeth with Hawker!

Thanks for the, (limited), info, (eventually).

So, It's for either the Echoe NA1 or NA5 ROM, based on the Samsung leaks. Full wipe and flash and then flash the anthrax/test1 kernel and Wi-Fi fix. No need for flashing the stock NA1/NA5 firmware first?

I wonder why the anthrax thread has been closed on xda???

I might leave this until later after you kamikaze cannon fodder lemming keen types have tried it.

Meanwhile, I've got a badger to find, whose nether regions I appear to have been licking! Flood damage sale at the pub last night... £1 a pint/bottle/double.

After reading Hawker's and Syd's posts on the Echoe ROM xda thread, here onwards, and friedrich's replies, I'm even more confused than when I started. Am I right about my earlier post guys?

Kind of wish I'd held fire with this one. Just to name a few of the problems, the phone seems to have to boot twice as once it's booted it'll go back to the echo splash screen after a few seconds and boot again. Settings force close whenever I try to open the security settings. This means I can't allow apps from unknown sources which means I can't install the hacked flash player. Whenever I try to uninstall an app using the application manager my phone ends up at the echo splash screen. I've had numerous random full reboots and other random returns to the echo screen. Battery seems a bit pants and changing the battery symbol in echo settings didn't do anything other than make my phone reboot.

Cheers Shotty old thing!

Just woken up from my extended afternoon nap to see that you've given it a go. Left my computer downloading Echoe v14, NA5. However, since you have taken on the mantle of chief lemming kamikaze cannon fodder test pilot, from Syd and sntaylor, I shall take heed of your report and stay on the Echoe GE, v2.2, ROM which has, since flashing the latest ktoonsez kernel, been behaving itself very well.

This now means that you've saved me lots of time and trouble... so, pub!

Just as well that you've got the, "Kernel that shall not be named", as I've just noticed that poor old Hawker has got a bollocking on the DjeMBey, xda, forum, here. A bit harsh I think. He meant well. Bless!

Looks like I'm stuck with this one till the morning as I don't have enough battery to do anything about it. At least it lets me set an alarm although I'm not sure I trust it to actually go off.

Works fine on the ge kit Kat rom.

On the tw rom, all is explained by the wonderful ironass in one of his trade mark guides here http://androidforums.com/international-galaxy-s4-all-things-root/784177-echoe-rom-post6383769.html. If you are on old boatloader, you MAY still get Wi-Fi working using anthrax kernel. Many have said this works, several have reported issues. personally have not tried it. The links on xda have been removed, so if you want to give it a go, pm me....

Best setup for v14 on old bootloader:

1. Newest version of Alien Kernel (downloading from playstore seems to be working... only root explorer did not, but all the other ones- and paid apps i tried installed successfully): https://mega.co.nz/#!upoTCKqS!ZkQnGBwvP-qUgXySjGZooVrbaM8fAcY9g0crcIQ_L2U

2. In case with just the kernel, wifi takes forever, flash 4.4.2. GE WIFI FILES: https://mega.co.nz/#!rshVmTRK!KR8AHXU7VKjtHHR0ZW0viVLg_scAJixoqeNLywf z4KU

3. And finally, for the Settings/ Security FC you inevitably get b/c of old bootloader flash my modded settings who seemed to have fixed that : https://mega.co.nz/#!GwpwWRoJ!WaZhIXSJoYvO4a_IqbGpBnhCavcG8CYqxwrsYsT SGR8

I'm on echoe rom v12 with old bootloader and I want to try v14.1. Can I just flash the v14.1 then flash the alien kernel?

Hello and welcome to Android Forums matchb0x!

Echoe v12 is Jelly Bean, Android 4.3 and Echoe v14.1 is KitKat, Android 4.4.2 and so therefore you will need to do a clean install as described in 3a, here.

Also on old bootloader

As you said, flash the rom then flash the kernel

see Friedrichs post (on this page ) and flash the other files

Only problem im having is wifi doesnt remember password after rebooting the phone.

In truth 4.4.2 has nothing more than 4.3 in fact i would say 4.3 is a lot better for smoothness, speed battery life etc.

now after trying this rom im going back to my GE 4.4.2 backup

I'm with you on Echoe GE 4.4.2 iT0mm0!

Been on it for awhile now and after getting used to the GE interface it is proving to be a stable, reliable, way of enjoying KitKat. With GravityBox and A Better Camera to enhance it. I especially like the latest version of the ktoosez kernel which is now giving me my old 4.3 battery life... particularly useful with the storms and power cuts I am getting at the moment!

Finally got round to replacing my Kox'd up stock rom (I9505XXUEMKF) with this one, but I'm getting an error while flashing:

Quote:
E:Error in /storage/sdcard1/Echoe_KitKat_v2.2_03Jan2014.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted
I did a full wipe (the one in Philz) and then started flashing. Tried searching for the error, but haven't found anyone with the same problem. Any suggestions?

Either flash philz 6.09.2 or earlier for the installation or change the updater script's format command to:
format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p16", "0", "/system");

Thank goodness you posted mate. Its been very quiet on here. I thought that I'd woken up in a post apocalyptic world and I was the only survivor.

No, not a post apocalyptic world, just the Cotswolds. Some might say the two are interchangeable......
