  • pratik

    Hi, the rom looks delicious! I want to install.

    I’m already on official Indian 4.3 on my i9500.

    Need to understand do I still need to flash stock rom again with adonis pit? Or, now that am already on stock 4.3 can I install wanam 3.0 directly from recovery?

  • tejas vyas

  • Bar Toledano

  • Bar Toledano

  • Abdulla Al Rumaithi

    Coming from Wanam 2.0/android 4.2.2, can I flash rom through recovery or odin without full data wipe? To keep my user data.

    Can anyone answer me?

  • Mattia Di Giuseppe

    I can’t flash pit file!!! It says me an error and blocked odin. Any idea?

  • deep

    i installed it but bloatware apps are not being removed i dont know y is that coz i didnt intalled modem or smthing ?

  • rickylambert

    Quite interesting, S-Voice stopped working here. Every time it launches I get this message: “It seems that microphone is in use by another App. Please close it and try again.” All other apps which make use of mic(e.g. Skype, video recording, Google Now) work fine. Tried stopping voice-related services and even wiping system/Factory reset but did not solve yet. Now I´m on Adam kernel 3. Anyone?

  • Bruno Rodrigues

    o wifi esta funcionando ???

  • acububad

    Hi wanam,

    Can you add to Wanam Xposed;
    1-Call End Screen Delay (0-1000ms)
    2-Back to home screen , auto to default (selected ) page.
    Now I’m using Wanam MH1 V2.
    I want to use Wanam MJ5 4.3.
    If I switch to Wanam MJ5 V3, will affect the warranty?


    If I switch to Wanam MJ5 V3, than if I install stock 4.2 or 4.3 from ODIN will affect the warranty?

    Thank you very much.
    Your works very good.

      recovery menu > wipe data and wipe cache

  • Roy Tsafrir

    I just want to understand it completly, so:

    1 . I put the New Vers in my phone (internal/external storage)
    2. flashing stock 4.3 (russia) with adonis pit
    3. updating CWM if nessecery
    4. flash the WanamLite 3.0
    5. install Xposed Installer and then Wanam Xposed

    i’m using wanamlite 2.0 right now.

    so that’s correct?

  • Roy Tsafrir

    well i just want to understand it completly, so:

    1 . I put the New Version in my phone (internal/external storage)
    2. flashing stock 4.3 (russia) with adonis pit
    3. updating/flashing CWM
    4. flash the WanamLite 3.0
    5. install Xposed Installer and then Wanam Xposed

    thats correct ?
    by the way, I’m using WanamLite 2.0 right now .

    • Braulio

      yes, its the correct

  • Deoxyribose Adhi

    Hi mr. Wanam

    If i use your method as on “Installation steps” of yours, will it trigger the knox?

    # i mean, on download mode using stock (official) it would be 0, if it’s rooted will increase

    ##as my thought, that CWM (by S.a.M.e.R_d) will root isn’t it?

    or any someone else give some explanation for this?
    thanks’ for anyone :)

  • Order

    How can we have selinux permissive?

  • rickylambert

    Hi Wanam and thanks for your hard work. Followed your instructions to the letter and worked like a charm -not even had to wipe, everything is there and working fine so far.
    Just wanted to point out that although I did not install Knox, SuperSU was being blocked and in order to keep it working I had to reinstall Busybox and update binaries.

    • Braulio

      Reinstall busybox? or superSU?

      • rickylambert

        Hi, just Busybox.

  • Braulio

    I found a error on the installation guide, I do exactly like wanam say and it’s stay on logo every time, I install stock with pit and the phone it’s OK, when install wanam it’s stay on logo, I do it without wipes and whit it. The problem is philz recovery, I do with cmw and it’s all OK.

  • Liton

    I’m stuck on Samsung logo :(

  • KK Yasir

    stuck on Samsung logo after installing ,, tried many times but same bootloop issue.. then tried v 2.0 and there is no issue everything is fine

    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Give me more details about how did you install it.

      • KK Yasir

        1st i installed Phliz then i installed Wanam 3.0 but after completing the installation even wiping data and clear cache it was stuck on Samsung logo…. then i tried with CWM but same issue.

        then i downloaded and install wanam 2.0 and everything is working fine.

        • ZZZ

          Did you install stock android 4.3 first with adonis pit like wanam said in instal guide?

          • KK Yasir

            no i just rooted my S4 with Philz then tried to install Wanam 3.0

            is there any other procedure ?

      • Brent Wicksted

        This fixed the reboot loop for me too!!

  • Kloesen Tròn Vo

    Dev-host is suck.

    Hot-file is the same.
    Some one can make a torrent of NEW CWM, STOCK MJ5 and Addonis ptit or up to XDA server?

    • Nail Ibrahimli


  • Nail Ibrahimli

    Hi Wanam, is this rom includes new modem MJ5 or need install via odin?

    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Not included, you can flash it through Odin if you need it.

  • dilgit

    Thanks Wanam Only one question. After installing MJ5 and before flashing your rom? Do I need to perform a full wipe? If not, than I’m actually flashing your rom over MJ5?

    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Nop, you don’t need to wipe if you got running the stock MJ5 with no issues, otherwise a Wipe data is required.

      • dilgit

        Thanks. MJ5 works just fine. I’ve installed Philz latest version 5.15. Will this be fine to flash your rom?

        • dilgit

          As far as I could find, there is no CWM for i9500, just for i9505. The latest for i9500 is I tried to flash your rom over MJ5 with Philz 5.15 but get the bootloop.

  • gz

    It contains old or new bootloader? I have new bootloader already and i am wondering if I can flash it without any issue. Dont care about warranty flag since its 0x1 since trying to downgrade..

    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      It does NOT contain any Bootloader.

      • Brandon James D’souza

        flashing it on stock rom wont increase knox status from 0x0 right?

  • DcMcIx

    Hi all
    I think wanam blocked the topic so he can see whats happening for people who faces bootloop so be patien till he see if everything is ok
    And thanks again for this great rom.
    Tested and great battety life i think samsung made a huge remake of this kernel
    for candy crush freaks it crush after the game exit 😉

  • Sergey Bolbat

    First of all, wanted to thank you for your great ROM. It’s the best ROM I’ve used on my i9500. And only one thing in Wanamlite makes me mad: contacts’ names fields are too short in the contact list. Is there any way to adjust it?


    • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      I don’t understand how short is it? i didn’t make any changes to this!!!

      • Sergey Bolbat

        It’s okay, I’ve cleared it. Thank you for reply.
        I’ve installed 3.0 and didn’t have any problems with installing it but for some reason I’ve got battery drain. The biggest consumer is Anroid System. I don’t know why but even when my phone is connected to desktop’s USB, phone is discharging.

        • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

          It should be the opposite, MJ5 seems to have a good battery life compared to 4.2.2 Rom.

          Use BetterBatteryStats and make sure you don’t have any background syncs.

          • Sergey Bolbat

            Okay, I’ll watch it.
            The zip-file with WanamLite you published after closing this topic has different size versus the first one. I’ve flashed first one without pit-file. Should I download and flash new sized WanamLite ROM?

            yea the pit thing worked ! my one friend recommended it .
            now on v3.0 !

            knox container doesnt work :/

          • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

            Why do you need it? I keep the Knox Apps for consistence only, if you need it, flash a stock FW.

          • nishant sutaria

            once rooted cant use knox container :/
            i thought you would have some alternative to use it 😀

          • Dahiru Aliyu

            i was able to flash the stock 4.3 rom with adonis pit and was able to boot, but when i flashed philz cwm 5.15.0 the latest in the link it goes into boot loop

            and f**k you
            better if you keep your fucking sense with you, he is the only guy to figure out the solution.
            and search for the adonis.pit on xda and i think so wanam has clearly mentioned the link !!

          • Degrated Shadow

            you wont be able to reproduce the issue wanam.
            samsung messed many of us when it tried to free some space and make 9.2 gb available in an ota update instead of 8.94 gb,

          • http://wanamlite.com/ Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

            Okay, so that’s why Samsung included the updated Adonis pit on Leaked Open Asia FW.

            I’m still on 8.92GB with my MJ5 with no issues, i guess i will flash the Stock MJ5 to get the same case as my users, to avoid such issue on the future.

          • nishant sutaria

            yes and trying again
