Beta 2: MoDaCo.SWITCH S4 i9505 support topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all !

@ Paul

Is it possible to have both zip file created by the switch to the flash in manual switch if possible. To be more precise, I delete my Google account rom GPE due to 927 errors on the "Google Playstore."

1 - to reboot the Google account back alone

2 - it does not restart as the TW ROM (it restarts only on Google GPE)

This would venture to not to have to reflash everything to a simple bug.

Thank you in advance and good day!

EDIT: this is exactly the same if you remove the Google account on the TW ROM, the switch returns only on TW.

Fortunately I have a nandroid backup of Modaco-Switch that works well on the switch.

Hi Paul,

A fantastic piece of work and installed flawlessly first go.

Quick question, if you want to use different launcher on each rom, i.e. TouchWiz on TW and Nova on GPe, is there a way to prevent the default launcher selection on each boot? Granted you've given instructions to use the same launcher but I couldn't figure this out. Not a huge drama though.

I would say same procedure... Deactivate/Freeze the Nova launcher on the TW Rom, do the same to TouchWiz on the GPe ROM.

If your device is not Switching, reinstall the root zip from the first post. A SuperSU update has broken things!

The issue with the device not Switching is related to the SuperSU update - I am preparing a fix now.

I think I found part, which poses a problem for the switch on my phone, Titanium Backup

I just restored the tw rom, I rebooted on gpe and impossible to go on tw.

I start everything from the beginning: MGA => 1.zip 2.zip .....

I install all applications from playstore and since my micro sd. no worries the switch works in both directions.

titanium must amend or prevent the implementation of your file created by the switch.

EDIT: SU exactly is responsible for the corruption of the switch after his update on TW, it is impossible for me to switch.

I thought it came from titanium backup because I had done it in the meantime:-P

The first post is updated with a SuperSU 1.55 install zip, which resolves the failure-to-switch issue.

Paul, I'm really sorry to bug you, i know you're very busy, but you haven't yet responded to any of my posts or messages. By the way, SWITCH is by far the best modification for android! Thanks for letting me test it out!

Sorry! How can I help? :)

Hi guys,

is it possible to flash a battery mod for both roms?

As long as you don't mess with framework.jar or services.jar, mods should work!

Hi guys just received my Galaxy S4 but noticed that it is a i337M with unlocked bootloader will this work with my phone? Ive read 9505 and i337M are quite similar, btw the email that I received with the download links are only for beta 1 where can I get beta 2?

Thanks!

I'm a little bit concerned about updates. Switch is a great thing, but i still can't use it really, first and for all because of the sim unlock bug. Is there beeing worked on ?

For some reason the downloaded rom won't flash in Odin, keeps failing on flashing system partition :/ Tried with Heimdall, same thing.

Beta 2 is OTA. Once you install Beta 1 it'll boot then prompt you for Beta 2.

I personally wouldn't try it on a non-9505 though.

From what I've seen on XDA, all Google Play Edition roms have the sim unlock bug. I don't think it's relating to Paul's work.

I had this a bunch of times before realising Mega wasn't downloading the full file. Check the file size of the zips. The 2nd one should be 1.5gb or thereabouts.

Exactly!

After Update SU 1.60 .Swich ok :)

The Switch files downloaded just fine actually, it's the recommended ROM in the first link that you get from Hotfile. Re-downloaded it twice now and even just extracting the tar results in unexpected end of file errors, flashing with Odin it fails to flash system partition :/ So i went with the stock rom that came with my S4 (NL, T-Mobile, I9505XXUBMGA) and worked just fine. I still prefer the Omega custom build if possible tho.
