  • uqbah

    Waiting kernal for I9505 running 4.3.

  • gksn

    can anyone tell me how to root 4.3? i can get root access by flashing adam kernel via odin before when i was on 4.2.2

    • Jay Pham

      So do I. Anyone can help?

  • Nbruderman

    I have the sound issue too, here is some details (Hopefully it will help):
    Im using the old bootloader
    I tried it on Crash rom 9 (im a beta tester), the rom has no knox apps
    Root access worked fine
    Flashed it trough TWRP and CWM same result
    Tried after removing the battey, didnt work
    Tried after shutdown, didnt work
    with Perseus RAW 2 the sound worked
    Of course i tried flash both rom and kernel several times
    Everything else was perfect

  • alexyu

    what about 9505 kernel for 4.3?

  • Nail Ibrahimli

    Sound does nor work, power off not helped

    • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      You updated from which Rom?

      • Nail Ibrahimli

        From Lacoste rom, Perseus 13 works fine, but with your kernel no sound

  • sti

    Will wanam Masters you will develop note 3 of the kernel do?, Or which models would do?

  • Guest

    I keep on getting a security information in notification bar. I selected the SEAndroid option but still get it. This device has detected an application attempting to perform actions not permitted

    • rickylambert

      Solved deleting all Knox-related stuff with Titanium Backup.

  • DcMcIx

    For a while I missed Adam kernel but now I can sleep :)
    Sir Allah yjazik khir
    Respect you make us proud of you
    Ps : test in progress 😉

  • Lacoste

    sound does not work on 3.0

    • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Power off your device completely (don’t use the Reboot menu), then Power on it again.

      • Lacoste

        does not work anyway! even ODIN a core set

  • Jameel Hussain

    I cant seem to find the screen section in the stweaks app?

    • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      Maybe because you didn’t read the features list.

      • Jameel Hussain

        I am sorry not everybody is a tech master like you. Can you tell me how can I fix the smearing issue on this version? Thnx

        • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

          You can’t.

          • Jameel Hussain

            Any chance of have this feature in future version? Or any ideas how to solve the smearing issue on i9500?

  • Ahmad Khalal

    What about i9505??

  • Khaled Ahmed

    is it included already in your latest rom ver 3.0 4.3 or i need to flash this too????

    • Mohamed Karami (Wanam)

      No it’s not included.

      • Khaled Ahmed

        you the best :) keep up the good work
