    This method wrecked my devise and the device will no longer boot. It sticks on the first logo when you turn it on. Sporadically will enter the custom OS download menu but nearlly impossible to get it into that mode, as you cannot take the battery out to switch off the phone and the button to switch off the phone no longer works, Even after you press it in for 30 secs CAN ANYONE HELP????

  7. Boon says:

    DO NOT TRY THIS FOR G925I you will brick your phone. You will have to download whole IOS and install with ODIN

    I would suggest be wise and read the file names correctly its “CF-Auto-Root-zerolte-zeroltexx-smg925f.tar.md5 ” which is not for G925I
