A few months ago I experimented with this eOS discovery on an old S4 and by God if I did not succeed the procedure very 1st try. Unfortunately it was a Sprint based CDMA and I found no one willing or able to unlock it so I could use it as an actual phone. $25 later I have an unlocked AT&T S4 that uses the same install procedure as the other S4, but this time I am looking at a procedure that was not part of the other install. This one is telling me to install software called HEIMDALL, and that there is no “build” available for Windows, and I have Windows and its bad enough wallowing thru the tech for the phone, but its telling me to follow some crazy ass procedure to “BUILD” it in Windows; like I guess compiling programs in C. This is wayyy out of my scope. Is this Heimdall thing essential, or is it just supposed to be a better way to install the eOS on the S4? This is getting a tad too hairy. I hope there is a better way.
Hi, well Heimdall is a reverse engineered Odin. Odin is the Samsung tool that they have licenced to Windows. Once you find Odlin3 you are good to go!
Fantastic! Actually this looks familiar. This is probably how I was able to install it 1st time! Thank you so much!
