    [ROM]Odin Flashable Cricket SGS4 Firmware

    WARNING:
    THIS IS FOR THE
    CRICKET GALAXY S4


    (SCH-R970C aka jfltecri) ONLY! THIS WILL NOT WORK ON THE OTHER VARIANTS REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY'RE FLASHED TO CRICKET OR NOT!
    THIS WILL ALSO TRIP YOUR FLASH COUNTER AND REPORT YOUR PHONE AS CUSTOM THEREBY DESTROYING ANY HOPE OF A WARRANTY.

    I am not responsible if this causes your phone to randomly burst into flames, kill your dog, steal your car, or anything else strange.
    DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE USING THIS FILE OR YOU WILL BREAK YOUR PHONE BEYOND REPAIR.
    You have been warned.

    With that being said, I present my first real accomplishment. Odin files for the
    Cricket Wireless Samsung Galaxy S4


    ! This Odin flashable software will return your Cricket SGS4 to a stock unrooted or rooted state.

    Links to files will be at the bottom of this post for a reason. You are expected to read this post thoroughly so that you can properly restore your phone and not have to worry about making a bad situation worse.

    If you can get into recovery, do a factory reset and if you had CWM or TWRP wipe dalvik otherwise, just proceed.


    Step One:
    Download the files you need at the bottom of this post. The Odin packages are in 2 pieces and then the other is Odin3 v3.07 itself.

    Step 1.5:
    Head over to
    WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files


    and download WinRAR. I had to rar these to compress the hell out of them since I found a reliable hosting site, but they don't allow uploads over 512MB. Each file is split into 2 parts and WinRAR will put them back together automatically for you.

    Step Two:
    Unzip Odin to a location easily accessible. For this walk through, I will use C:Odin.

    Step Three:
    Download and install the
    Galaxy S4


    drivers from Samsung here:

    Support - More Cell Phone Providers SCH-R970C | Samsung Cell Phones




    Step Four:
    Plug in your phone using the OEM cable that came with it and wait for the drivers to install. You may need to reboot your PC.
    Note: After market cables are not recommended, but may work. Don't quote me on that.

    Step Five:
    From a powered off state, boot your phone into Recovery (if possible) by pressing Volume Up + Home + Power and do a Factory Reset and wipe Dalvik Cache. Do not reboot the system. You will want to do a battery pull so as to not rebuild cache and dalvik cache. Now replace the battery boot into Download Mode by pressing Volume Down + Home + Power. Once the phone vibrates, release power but continue to hold the other 2 until you see the warning that looks like this(side note: the yellow triangle was triggered on my phone because I have in fact tested this on my own phone after softbricking it a number of ways and restoring this way without using a nandroid backup and the second picture shows a flash counter that also increments by 1 for each flash.):


    Pressing Volume Down will cancel download mode and restart your phone. Volume Up however will bring you to a screen with a
    green android


    populating it. This is what we want so press Volume Up now.



    Step Six:
    Fire up Odin. Open C:OdinOdin3_v3.07.exe. Once it comes up, if your phone is connected and the drivers installed properly, the first box in the third row will be highlighted, and you will be presented with this screen:



    The arrows are the only options we are concerned with. ESPECIALLY DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT SELECT REPARTITION OR BOOTLOADER OR YOUR PHONE WILL BE 100% UNRECOVERABLE.

    Check the box next to the button labeled PDA then click the PDA button. Navigate to where ever you decompressed the tar.md5 file and select it. Then click the start button.



    If all goes well, your phone should reboot and start normally if you were able to get back into CWM recovery.

    To boot into the recovery, you will need to do a battery pull and push Volume Up + Home + Power until it vibrates. Once in recovery, you should be able to do a factory reset to get your phone back up and running. Another user mentioned after you get it booted, to look for a clean script to wipe dalvik to make it smooth again.


    After you complete the wipes, simply reboot and enjoy!

    Thanks everyone for your patience while I got this sorted out. I will keep working on this until I have a complete stock odin flashable file both rooted and not for this phone.

    Goo is slow since they're upgrading. It's not you. Yes PayPal donations go to me but I'd rather it go to the site.

    Give it a while. It's 2.7GB so it might be a while

    Downloading from Goo now. I will test the local version I already have first. I've been super busy lately which is why I haven't been on much.
