    I'm currently using a modified LG2 patch found in the thread below and was wondering what's the easiest way to update to LG8 and return my phone to the exact state it's in now.



    Thanks for any advice!
    I flashed the backup made with my custom recovery. Anytime I flash something I backup my entire system.when it restores, it restores my phone to the exact state it was in before. This includes launcher, shortcuts, settings, apps, data, keyboards, wallpaper, browser bookmarks and passwords. Absolutely everything is identical.

    Thanks, I used your method to unroot, let OTA do the updates and then manually updated to LG8, all without losing a thing as far as apps and settings go.

    I do have one question, I know that the Google Search was disabled for local searches. I restored it via Titanium backup but I think I read somewhere that I will lose it again when I reboot and have to change permissions or something like that. Do you know the proper method?

    Thanks!

    Yes, it's pretty easy. Delete the delete the googlequicksearchbox.apk inside of system/apps. Then copy the file that I've attached to the same location. You may have to reboot but I'm not positive.

    If your counter has already been tripped, no. However, it won't add any counts as it's the stock official image file.

    But if you would like to reset your counts, i have already made a thread that tells you how to do it. Go here to reset your counts

    First thing to try is updating your bianaries and trying again. If you haven't this should work.

    Download all the files to your phone and place the CWM on your sd card. No need for your desktop. Make sure you re-enable root first.

    1. Place Team Epic Root From Recovery To your external sd.
    2. Click on Mobile Odin Lite and choose install (Do not open yet)
    3. Click on Mobile Odin Flash APK and choose install
    4. Open Mobile Odin Lite and allow root access. If it says you are not rooted then you will have to do it the old fashion way with Desktop Odin see below...
    6. click on recovery option and choose external or internal sd (Where did you put your recovery file.)
    6. Choose your recovery.
    7. Scroll down to flash firmware and select. You will get a warning so press continue.
    Your device will now boot into recovery.
    8. While in recovery flash Team Epic Root From Recovery.

    Root with desktop Odin

    1. Move the CWM to your computer (remember where you put it)
    2. Open Desktop Odin.
    3. Click on the PDA block and after a moment a browser box will open. Browse to the CWM tar file.
    4. Uncheck Auto Reboot and Reset Timer (If your phone reboots before installing Team Epic Root for Recovery you will lose recovery again)
    Note. The only block checked should be PDA and in the block by pda should be the path to CWM tar.
    5. Put your phone in download mode by pressing and holding volume down, power and home buttons at the same time until a warning comes up. then press the volume up to continue.
    6.Now plug your phone into the usb port and be sure you see com and a number in the ID:COM box. This lets you know Odin recognizes your phone.
    7. Click on the start button. It will be safe to unplug your phone from the computer when the message block says "disconnected". It should go back to recovery when finished.
    While in recovery flash team Epic Root for Recovery. You should be good.

    By unchecking the Auto Restart block it Shouldn't reboot the phone. If it does you will have to try again. So it could be a good idea to pull the battery cover off so you can pull the battery if it tries to restart.

    [BOX="Drivers"]
    Your Samsung Drivers MUST be installed correctly on your computer prior to continuing. You can install them by installing keis.

    or
    alone

    Either way wait until the software installs completely before plugging your device into the computer. When you have completed driver installation, plug in your device. The computer should now tell you it is installing drivers click on the details and wait until there is a green check by all the drivers. Unplugging your device before it's complete will cause you problems. [/BOX]

    [BOX="Preparing Your Computer"]
    You will need to download the following files to your desktop or notebook computer. Just click on the file names and that should download the file required. I would suggest you make a folder on your desktop and name it something like Root GS3







    After downloading the above files to your computer:

    1. double click on the "Odin 3.07 zip". Copy the "Odin307" folder into your "UnRoot GS3" folder.
    2. double click on the "KIES_HOME_L710VPALEN_L710SPRALEN_618049_REV03_user_low_ship.tar.zip" And Copy "KIES_HOME_L710VPALEN_L710SPRALEN_618049_REV03_user_low_ship.tar.md5 and the " SS_DL.dll" files to the UnRoot GS3 folder [/BOX]


    [BOX="Using Odin"]
    1. Open the "Odin307" folder and right click on "Odin3 v3.07.exe" and choose run as administrator. Odin will open.
    2. place your phone into download mode. Turn off phone - press and hold volume down, home button and power button at the same time. When you see the warning push the volume up button to continue.
    3. Plug your usb cord to your phone and computer and wait until you see any number and com in the com
    4. Check the PDA block and browse to "KIES_HOME_L710VPALEN_L710SPRALEN_618049_REV03_user_low_ship.tar.md5" in your UnRoot GS3 Folder

    5. Verify Auto Reboot is checked as well as F. Reset Time [/BOX]

    When all this is setup Odin should look like this:



    6. If everything looks like the picture, click on the start button in Odin.

    Note: This is vary large file and make take up to 10 minutes to complete.

    When the phone leaves download mod and starts to reboot you can remove the usb cord.
    Galaxys3root.com is all u need

    What your doing is flashing cwm tar file in Mobile Odin. It will reboot you to cwm recovery. Then while in recovery, flash team epic root from recovery.

    Just samsung trying to make it harder for us. It wasn't like this with LEN. Samsung implemented it with (I think) lf9. If you aren't rooted correctly the phone will try to replace your recovery with stock. This is why you must either pull your battery or tell Odin not to re start when rooting. Also why I recommend using the no flash count method to root. It has superuser built into the stock image. The issue is the su it has is older. I will need to update the instructions so this doesn't continue to be an issue. Which I will do when I get off work.

    Please don't tell me you tried to root using the Galaxy S3 method. Please tell me you're kidding... If not, i would suggest you you head over to the touch forums and ask for help.
