    Hi. I just got a notification telling me a new firmware was available for my i9505. I use TriangleAway to mask that my phone is rooted. However, when trying to update, the phone will reboot into TWRP, and thus unable to install/update further from there. I guess the easy solution would be to 'force' install via TWRP, but I'm unable to find the downloaded installer package. Any ideas to where the package is hiden, - or better ways to do this?

    Not really used twrp, got it on my nexus 7 but have never actually flashed away from stock!

    I'd suggest just manually flashing the updated pre rooted Rom available from xda!

    You have a couple options. You can go back to all stock,

    1 - Odin back to stock rom.

    2 - Use CF-Auto-Root from the XDA thread. Just install it through PDA in Odin. (see his 2nd post for instructions) Now you're rooted with stock recovery so you can use Triangle Away.

    3 - Use Triangle Away. Follow the directions exactly.

    4 - After phone reboots, go back to stock recovery, do a factory reset and wipe cache partition.

    Everything in Odin mode and in settings About Device should all say Official now. You should be able to get OTA updates now.

    or, probably the easiest way, go to sammobile/firmwares, type your phones model number in the search box where it says "Search device here". A list of stock roms will come up. Download the one for your phone and use Odin to install it. It will unroot you and you'll have to reroot.

    When you check the firmwares, make sure its not the same as you already have. I don't know what update you might be getting. If its something really new they might not have it up yet.
