I'm trying to root Galaxy S6 G9200 HongKong Dual Sim edition with CF-Auto Root but it failed and showed:
Installation Failure You need to unlock your device to install a custom OS. For information about how to unlock, please refer to your device information at [URL].... Please press the power key to restart.
I bought a S6 (G920F) two months ago and it came with 5.1.1 android installed. I want to root it but without tripping KNOX because I have two year warranty. I know that pingpong root does this but on 5.0.2. Can I flash the official build for 5.0.2 via Odin and don't get KNOX tripped.
I've currently rooted my Galaxy S6 and I'd like to return it fully to factory stock without tripping KNOX. Unfortunately I'm going to return this device since the memory management issues are a dealbreaker for me on a $800 phone.Will flashing stock firmware trip KNOX?
An OTA update to 5.1.1 loaded last week for my G920I and I am unable to uninstall Knox or disable it. How to do it without root? I am a huge supporter of rooted devices but this one does not have a whole lot of bloat so I would rather keep it unrooted. All the instructions point to a Knox icon and main settings in Knox which I do not have.
Knox is loaded and running and alsmost using up a gig of ram. I had Knox enabled in 5.0.3 before the OTA update and it appears to be enabled still in 5.1.1. I do not care about security and I am careful about what I install and I don't need a system app running and wasting battery and ram.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S5/ Android 5.0/knox v 2.3
While adjusting my settings in Knox I switched to folder view, which has completely changed the knox environment. The main thing I now find is I can no longer toggle in and out of the knox container using the notifications area that you swipe down from the top of the screen, unless there is a specific notification, ie a new email.
The option within the Knox settings that I used to switch to folder view is no longer visible - the settings seem to have changed ( and more to the point, I can't remember the exact option) so I can't switch back.
Is there any easy fix to either add a toggle into the notifications area to enter/leave the knox container, or preferably to switch back from the folder view organisational structure to the standard environment that I assume is there by default?
There are rumors the first region's update (Europe) will roll out starting tomorrow.According to sources, the update will NOT install if you are using a custom ROM, you are rooted, and you are not on 2.1.that's right! You must have an OFFICIAL 2.1 unrooted rom.here's the screenshot from SE's site before it was removed...this details the feature updates (remember these are only features....many more things may have been added/updated than are listed here).It's also been confirmed the update will include baseband 2.1.70, and POSSIBLY (unconfirmed) a kernel update
I have rooted my phone alreasy and its on stock ROM & kernel. Now I want to use CM10 JB for ny device for that I should have to use clockword but it doesn't support my device. While the threadd for installing the JB is telling that I have to install it for to be ble to use the JB. But I have downloaded the adb shell for CWM and install it on device through laptop and then downloaded the ROM manger form the play store, Rom manger is finding the CWM but it says that it soen't support my device. I can't backup current kernel and ROM. I just want to know how can I use it on my device to use custom ROM.
so I have a nexus 6 I am trying to root and I am using nexus 6 root toolkit I do everything they say to do but when I install the custom rom it says I don't have root access what am I doing wrong. I have tried to root it like 3 times now and it does the same thing.
I am on a stock rooted Nexus 5 (with TWRP). I want to install a custom rom; however, I would like to do a clean install of the custom rom (making sure no files/settings of my previous installations are left if that makes sense). What's the best way to go about this? Does it mean I have to install both the custom rom and the recovery again in order to do a clean install?
Iv give my Iphone 3gs to my girlfriend, she's like wow thats great and loving the whole apple experience, then BOOM FAIL two months in after getting the phone sim free (Jailbroken) by my provider the thing keeps dying and tripping out the screen trips and she has to wait a couple of minutes for it to be turned on.1 I look like a fail and 2 I feel a tit as i said its the best phone i'v ever had apart from my 4s.
I just update my S6 to MM, but i'm not able to set a custom font anymore. With Lollipop i was able to install a custom font with IFont and apply it from screen settings. Now IFont still can install the font, but once you try to apply from settings, it says that it's not supported and it asks if you want to unistall it.
I am trying to create a custom firmware for SM-G925F (Galaxy S6 edge). But in the end I get bootloop. What I did:
1. Deodexed /system (unpacked from original firmware) by JoelDroidLollipopBatchDeodexer (based on oat2dex). 2. Synced deodexed /system/framework, /system/priv-app and /system/app with original /system. 3. Repack system partition with ext2simg from Android 5.0.2 distro and sgs4ext4fs by Chainfire. 4. Prepared ODIN package with repacked system partition.
It flashes OK but after it stucks at bootloop. I did not patched anything yet, just deodexed with the tool.
I tried many different combinations but can't understand why it is not boot. On Android 4.4 I had no problems, but it seems some big under-the-hood changes in Android 5 which I don't fully understand yet...
I have a SGS5 on Verizon wireless with the most recent software update from last week.This morning I changed my phone's battery and my custom ringtones--for Gmail and stock messaging apps--are no longer working and no longer appear as options in the settings for both apps.The custom ringtone files are still on the phone.I've tried re adding them, and copying them to different folders; I also tried searching for any of the existing stock sounds but nothing comes up with I search for "Postman" "harp" or "dew drops."
I currently am running Stock ROM from EE which includes WiFi Calling. I want to use custom ROMs but I cannot due to it not having WiFi Calling, I have asked developers but I have been ignored. I do not have any signal at work nor at home so I rely on WiFi Calling, how do I put it on a custom rom myself?
