Update Verizon Galaxy S4 to Lollipop (OF1) & Keep Root
Galaxy S4 Lollipop Roll-Out Begins – Verizon Community

Whenever a new software update comes out, it makes its way to the new flagship devices first. If you own a one or two-year-old device, you might need to wait for months before its knocks your door. The Galaxy S4 received the KitKat update the last year and now Samsung has started rolling out the latest Lollipop update to the device. It was just a day ago that Verizon broke out the news of the long awaited update roll out through a support document on its official website. Soon after, the Galaxy S4 users on Verizon reported getting the Android 5.

Before you proceed with the OTA method, make sure your device is unrooted or fully stock. Just launch the tool and follow the on-screen instructions. You can also use this firmware to unbrick your soft-bricked Verizon S4.

You can install it using Odin v3. See our detailed tutorial on flashing stock firmware on Galaxy devices. Please, backup your apps and data with Titanium Backup app before proceeding. If you want to enjoy the all new Lollipop with root privilege, you can install the pre-rooted Lollipop firmware using FireFlash app. Since the method uses a full firmware package, you can install it on your Verizon Galaxy S4 regardless of what Android or firmware version it has. However, to be able to use FireFlash, your device must have root access.

The screen of your phone will turn black for a while and then show the contents of your device before starting the installation. Now sit patiently while it all happens and your device reboots. It might take minutes before your phone boots up for the first time. You have successfully updated your Verizon Galaxy S4 to Android 5.

Just wait until the tethering add-on is flashed. How long should this take? Thanks you so much for 5. Hi Malik, device heating and battery drain is a very common issue with new firmwares on all devices. You should wait for days. It will be fixed automatically. I have root my S4 with king root and delete Unnecessary app. Any Suggestion? Or do I need to unroot? Or update to the OTA Lollipop, then start at step 1. I have a galaxy s4 sch i verizon and , android version 4.

Can I install this pre rooted firmware directly to my rooted sch i vruemk2 without several updates first? I have cwm installed. What the hell I followed you instructions carefully and wanted to update and keep root after I pressed the lighting bolt then when the installation finished my phone rebooted and nothing happen my phone is as it is. The only change is when I go to software update it says your phone was modified.

Titanium back up from when I used it in the settings allowed you to if rooted or not to keep the app there in place even through software updates. Hi Rakesh. I want to ask one question im on frunk1 firmware 4. I tried the flashfire method to upgrade to lolipop well keeping root. When i hit the flash button the phone always restarts into android revovery mode.

Any ideas? How do I fix this? Hello Rakesh! Is it possible to use Odin? So please, I need help. You can try a data factory reset for the fixing your issue. Hi Rakesh, thanks for the great post.

One question, if I still have a rooted version of 4. I ultimately would like to keep root on a 5. Or should I just get a new phone? I have been using for about 3 months now.

The best Samsung phone so far! Battery is not very good though. Curious if you rooted. Hey any recommendations on how to get around this rebooting into Android recovery problem after I hit the lightening bolt in FlashFire? Should I try the odin method? Booted into And. Should I select one of the options? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Did you ever get your S4 to upgrade to lollipop and keep root? Please help. I got lollipop update. Any suggestions? Then phone reboots.

After flashing rooted rom is there a way to install a custom recovery? Can I just flash the deodexed version staright from already being in Lollipop? Or do I need to downgrade to 4. This worked perfect after the initial hiccup below. I was on rooted S4 4. Seems all data is intact as well! I installed the latest version v 0. When I select flash zip I can browse the internal and external card but my zip file does not show.

I put it on both after trying the first time. I found two post on xda but no answers. Tried renaming it as well with no luck.

Thanks for the clarification and promptly responses. Device did not boot after fireflash. Im now bricked trying to unbrick but odin wont connect to phone.

Did this work for anyone? I have been watching this site. I have a rooted GS4 running 4. Also is it safe to upgrade this method via hyperdrive rom or should I do a full wipe in odin to 4. On a unrelated not is there any custom roms on lollipop yet like a hyperdrive updated version? Thanks guys please give me your feedback on your experience because the comments have me very skeptical of trying this method. However, I would still recommend you to flash the stock firmware, root and and proceed.

Using it will cost you data charges Usually, carriers disable WiFi hotspot feature on your device and you are required to pay them to get it enabled. I also was on 4. I tried the recommended downgrade and further bricked my phone. Can I downgrade my phone back to NC5, 4. If you updated to Lollipop using OTA package, you cannot downgrade because it upgrades the bootloader to the Lollipop version.

I was on 4. Do I use odin to downgrade to OS, the bootloader or the firmware to re-root and then re-upgrade? Also the Rom link under the alternate method is broken.

This seemed so easy. I had a rooted KitKat Verizon S4. I followed the instructions to the letter, using the first method to keep root. All seemed great except like many folks here when I rebooted, I had lost root. So I found a Windows machine so I could run Odin to downgrade to one of the KitKat ROMs that Rakesh suggested to someone else here who had that problem, but it failed and may have bricked my phone.

Rakesh, you have been so helpful, could you please point me at the right ROM or whatever I need to do , so I can downgrade, re-root, and try again with the alternate method?

Sounds like you did about the same things as me see below. Wow — what a pain.
