Samsung - Galaxy S III (LTE / International) - i9305 - Documentation Suggestions

Please add your suggestions to improve the documentation for the Samsung - Galaxy S III (LTE / International) - i9305 here …

Good day, everyone. I was able to flash /e/ onto my i9305, and all system functions are performing as expected, except 4G/LTE. I am also seeing some of the other issues already mentioned on other posts such as with ProtonMail and MTP Host.

This step is listed prior to the enumerated steps.

Flash this patch zip on the stock ROM before flashing the /e/OS build.

I recommend moving this step into the numbered steps.

I did not find it clear as to whether I should flash the patch, then perform the numbered steps, or if I should flash the patch just prior to step 8. (Step 8 is to sideload the /e/ .zip package.)

Thank you,
Dan.

Thanks for the suggestion @Danno
Will have this moved to the correct place.

I did. Thanks for bringing it up, though.

I’m just learning about how phones work. Turns out the i9305 4G does not work in the US. But I am able to get up to H+ for now. But I’m all set if I ever take a trip to, say Korea. :grin:

Looks like the One Plus 6T is a good selection for US towers.

Maybe this could be more explicit. Do you mean adb sideload system(sim_support).zip ? Then maybe it should be said whether to reboot or not. (twrp suggests rebooting).

Is there a way to say in the documentation that TWRP twrp-3.0.2-1-i9305.img needs to be used for the adb sideload to work ? Looks like https://github.com/TeamWin/Team-Win-Recovery-Project/issues/1500 Or maybe the image needs to be generated differently ?

Seems to be working (booting right now) :tada:

@arthurlutz I was eventually able to figure out that the command for flashing is the same as adb sideload file. But I agree that should be included in the step.

You also bring up an excellent point about the latest TWRP version not working. That took me a while to figure that out too. It may be an appropriate note in the installation procedure.

Glad you got it working! I’m really enjoying it. I wish that the 4G worked where I live. It is a nice little phone for sure.

Dan.
