  1. Yesterday My S4 screen started flashing/flickering white light and after few minutes it become dead. Now I can only see the little yellow sand /blurry screen when I switch on the phone. Samsung Service centre did not accepted the phone as its foriegn handset. If someone has any solution in Mumbai please let me know. Thanks.

  2. I updated my S4 by following the procedure posted by XDA member Ingenium13 on XDA. The best part of updating by this way is; you will not lose any of your current data and settings. Also your phone will be updated with complete firmware i.e. bootloader, radio, stock recovery and OS.

    Following is the link for complete guide :


    You dont have to uninstall/Install anything. Remember the Joshm way of updating our Fascinate via ODIN :smartass:

    1. Make a complete backup of your phone via your current recovery.\

    2. Download all the required file as specified in above link.

    3. Place MJA update file on your SD Card. (Remember not to put in Phone memory)

    4. Start ODIN in your computer and load the stock MF9 through PDA. Make sure re-partition is not checked in ODIN

    5. Power off the phone completely and then go into download mode by holding VolDown+Home+Power button together.

    6. Connect your phone to computer. (See if ODIN has detected it? In my case I had to connect the phone first and then start ODIN.)

    7. Load the stock MF9 through ODIN. Reboot to check that your Data is not lost. Now you are on stock MF9.

    8. Reboot to stock recovery by holding down VolUP+Home+Power button together.

    9. Select Install from zipcard and navigate to the stock MJA file you put in your SD card in step 3. Flash it.

    10. After Flashing you will see that you are on stock 4.3 and all your data is still intact.

    Now you can root your phone by using Chainfire’s CF-auto root file. Just download the auto root file and flash it through ODIN. Complete rooting procedure is here:
