    I9502 Jelly Bean 4.3 Official Rom + Rooting + Google Play

    As it shows from the title, this is the official Jelly Bean 4.3 room with a rooting method ( if you wish to root ) also a Google play installation.

    Downloads: (Choose one link as you wish)
    1- All files "Rom file + Recover file + Google Play file + SuperSU file"
    file size: 1.3 GB
    [ Login above or register to see download links. ]


    2- All of the above except The Rom file
    file size: 24.3 MB
    [ Login above or register to see download links. ]

    The steps are as the following: ( a text file explanation is included with the download)
    "DO NOT EXTRACT ANY OF THE USED FILES"

    First: Have an entire backup of your phone data, in case of a failure.

    Second: Turn off your phone then start your phone in download mode "Down button + Home button + switch Button".
    Then up button to say yes and enter the download mode.

    Third: Open Odin program then put the update rom 4.3 in the PDA and start.
    The phone will restart with the new update 4.3.s

    Fourth: Again go to the download mode and also the same again with the Odin
    and this time put the recovery file. the phone will restart.

    Fifth: Before going to the recovery mode, make sure that you copy the two files.
    The SuperSu and the Google play file (yourZgapps), to your local or external memory.

    Sixth: Turn off your phone and go to the recovery mode, Up button + Home button + switch button.
    Then up button to say yes and enter the recovery mode.

    Seventh: Now you just need to install the two files (SuperSU and google store).
    Unfortunately, yet, there is no English version in this recovery and instead this is
    a Chinese version. However, you can see some English word in the choices.
    In the first screen you can read "zip" click it then you go to another screen.
    You can see "sdcard" in one option and "external" in another. Choose one of them
    according to the place you have copied your files. The next screen you can navigate
    to the file and install it as usual.
    Do the installation to the both files and after you finish just touch the go back sign until it
    goes out and reboot.


    Congratulations: now you have an official rooted rom 4.3 with Google play in I9502


    Issues may occure:

    *Android upgrades whenever I turn my mobile on?

    1. Download and install Root Explorer.
    [ Login above or register to see download links. ]

    2. Navigate to “/system/framework/” using Root Explorer, click on “Mount R/W”.

    3. Find these files:

    com.google.widevine.software.drm.jar

    com.google.widevine.software.drm.odex

    4. Either add “.bak” to the end of the file names, or delete them.

    * Change Boot animations and audio?
    Download:
    [ Login above or register to see download links. ]

    The below two files are for the startup boot animation:

    \system\media\bootsamsung.qmg
    \system\media\bootsamsungloop.qmg

    These can be changed with the stock Samsung files (downloaded). When I however tried removing these completely,
    the device would no longer lock and unlock, the screen stayed on constantly. So I only recommend replacing these,
    not deleting them altogether. Also, when these are deleted, the boot process isn't any quicker, you simply see
    a black screen instead of a logo, which makes the startup feel longer.

    The below file is for the shutdown animation, you can either replace this with the Samsung one (downloaded) or delete it altogether.

    \system\media\shutdown.qmg

    These two files are for the startup and shutdown sounds, you can replace them with the Samsung ones (attached) or remove them altogether.

    \system\media\audio\ui\PowerOn.ogg
    \system\media\audio\ui\PowerOff.ogg

    Still trying to figure out how to remove the WO 3G boot screen that displays on the device as soon as you turn it on, not sure where this file is located.

    I used Root Explorer to move the files around on the device, and recommend renaming the old files (add .bak to the end) rather than deleti

    *How do I remove the Chinese text in the phone app?

    1. Navigate to Settings > My device > Call > Phone number locator

    2. Uncheck “Enable PNL”

    Being an official ROM, I take it that it supports more than only the English and Chinese languages?

    Yes, indeed. But the problem that they didn't include Google official play. Instead they use the Chinese store.
    Therefore, you need to modify the Rom by installing Google play using the recovery mode, unless you would like to use the Chinese one. This unfortunately will lead to disabling Samsung update feature because of this modification. So, anyway rooting the phone would be more appreciated in this case.

    Not sure what I'm doing wrong here.

    Can't boot into recovery mode to do a restore of the previous ROM.
    Get a "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again.

    ....Which doesn't work either.

    Check:
    1. You are using original quality USB lead.
    2. Connect directly to PC USB port and not through a USB hub.
    3. Try another USB port.
    4. Make sure Kies is not running.
    5. Check antivirus is not blocking.

    Go to Download mode again and do the steps again. It works with me.
    If it didn't work with you many times, you should download the one from the official link.
    This the official update linke:

    I chose the latest one.
    I don't know why the link changed to ********
    but just change stars TOsamsung-updates

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the answers. For now I reflashed CWM recovery en restored phone to previous ROM. Will try to upgrade again when I'm home from work

    Edit: Same issues on my home PC as with my business laptop. ROM wouldn't install. Reflashing CWM recovery though was succesfull.

    I did everything Greenman adviced, but still no go.

    I am downloading the ROM again, but now from the link bison18 suggested.

    Oké, I'll give it another try. I presume I can follow the same procedure as described in your first post?
