  16. Same as Mike. He stocks by hidden.img

  17. Alles gedaan.
    Tijdens het installeren verscheen een foutmelding:
    can’t mount /preload

    Alles werkte maar mijn opslag was verdwenen.
    Ok, opnieuw al drie keer.
    De blauwe balk op de samsung loopt steeds bijna tot het einde evenals de groene balk in Odin maar verder niets meer.

  18. i would suggest all users to just wait for the official as none of these from advices work, hopefully north korea wont nuke south before the update or china wont go to war with the south east asian countries over the spratleys.

  19. It’s as laggy as hell, 2.36 was running smooth, thanks for putting up this garbish to waste my time and ruin my phone and warranty… Now I have to find a decent 2.36
