Android 5.0 Lollipop

lollipop

 

As Many of you may or may not know Android 5.0 Lollipop was announced today by Google, bring us many new features and improvements. Among my favorites are the: Tap & go: instant set up of your new Android phone or tablet by simply tapping it to your old one (requires NFC) This will make it really easy to change devices and i am loving this idea.  Next is the new handy controls like flashlight, hotspot, screen rotation and cast screen controls in quick settings. This features is something that almost every custom rom has in it. Again this is the beauty of open source, the ideas come from everyone not just Google. Last on my list is the battery saver feature which extends device use by up to 90 mins. Battery is Key on Android devices and is something that i am seeing OEM’s focus more and more on. If you would like to see a full list of features on Android 5.0 Lollipop then check out the official site HERE

How to use Odin and Fastboot

ODIN flashable devices

odin

 

BASIC INSTRUCTIONS

All downloads contain .tar.md5 files flashable in ODIN as PDA.

Make sure your device is in ODIN download mode (usually you can get there by holding VolDown+Home+Power when the device is turned off), then start the included Odin3-v1.85.exe file, press the PDA button, select the .tar.md5 file, and click Start. You can find more detailed instructions and assistance at XDA.

A modified recovery and cache partition will be flashed, which will install (only) SuperSU, then clean-up the cache partition and re-flash the stock recovery.

For the root to work, the device must reboot into recovery. Most devices will do this automatically after flashing these files, but in case that does not happen, please boot into recovery manually.

UNLOCK BOOTLOADERS

If you have locked bootloaders, flashing one of these will probably brick your device – with the exception of Nexus devices, which will usually automatically “OEM unlock” and wipe your data !

 

Download the Odin Program you will need HERE

Download the samsung usb drivers for your computer if you dont already have them HERE

 

Fastboot flashable devices

fastboot

BASIC INSTRUCTIONS

All downloads contain .img files bootable through Fastboot.

Make sure your device is in Fastboot mode (usually you can get there by holding VolUp+VolDown+Power when the device is turned off), then run the included script for your OS. On Linux and Mac, you may have to chmod +x root-linux/mac.sh before the script does anything.

A special boot image will load, which will install (only) SuperSU, then reboot into Android.

UNLOCK BOOTLOADERS

The included scripts perform an “OEM unlock”. If this fails, the root will not work. If it succeeds, and you were not previously unlocked (first time rooting ?), it will probably wipe your data !

For some device (Sony, Verizon, etc) you may need an OEM-specific tool to unlock the bootloader. Please do not forget to check and use this tool, if provided by the OEM.

Download the fastboot files you will need for WIndows HERE
