    Stock KERNEL: Downloads: <<< Android Host >>>
    Stock RECOVERY: Downloads: <<< Android Host >>>
    Pre-Rooted ROM: Downloads: <<< Hotfile >>> or <<< Android Host >>>
    i cleared cache and did factory reset..oh and back up of course...i flashed it using odin and the when it came back on the rootin ad been took off...so i did it again still same...i then rooted it using same cf boot and then read not to use this to root with pre rooted rom so im confused...and the pre root didt work it wouldnt let me access tinanium back up.

    First up, what was the model of your phone?

    I'm going to assume it's the i9505 if you had been advised to use the djembey stock Rom.

    The one you want to flash via Odin is the pre rooted option, which it appears you have done. If this hasn't worked, you may have to download super user from the play store, or you could try one of the other pre rooted options such as mf8 or the newer mgg(I think? Lol)

    If you previously had a recovery installed,I believe(it has done for me) that is wiped by the stock recovery so you would need to reflash whatever custom recovery you had :) if anything else happens, please come back asap and we will try to help, don't go too flash happy :)

    Hopefully that link works for the mga update.

    You do actually have the s4 LTE, lte just refers to 4g, the same as the h signal is still 3g :)

    To clarify its the bottom one with two download options that you click on, it's just give you choice on what server to download from :)

    Original Stock ROM: Download: <<< Hotfile >>>
    Stock KERNEL: Downloads: <<< Android Host >>>
    Stock RECOVERY: Downloads: <<< Android Host >>>
    Pre-Rooted ROM: Downloads: <<< Hotfile >>> or <<< Android Host >>>

    are you sure lol because when i bought the phone i was unaware of this lol they never said it was that, thay acted like the lte was a different model of s4.

    ok so the file i download is under the modified rather than under the official list...cos i downloaded one already and think it was wrong one

    so will it be rooted once i flash it? because somewhere i read it says not to use cf boot to root

    and should i flash the zip file in philz or using odin...ad should i do another wipe then the cache and factory before flashing?

    I9505 has LTE
    I9500 is HSPA only.
