Here is a decently modified Samsung TouchWiz firmware by xda member SilviuMik quite similar to the deodexed stock firmwares series for GT-I9195 except this one is not actually deodexed but still offers very neat features and modifications.

In this package, you will find a stock firmware that comes pre-rooted, has all the KNOX applications removed so that you won't be getting any annoying notifications, enabled sd card writing, as well as some kernel tweaks as Samsung has finally released the KitKat sources. For a full list of this firmware and its kernel features, check out the list below.


  • Pre-rooted with SuperSU v2.02 thanks to Chainfire
  • Custom Kernel compiled by SilviuMik from Samsung KitKat sources
  • Battery drain in deep sleep patches included
  • OnDemand CPU governor
  • No-Op I/O scheduler
  • Knox removed from source files credit to F4k
  • Ramdisk modified and knox related stuff removed / SELinux Permisive
  • Compiled with Linaro GCC 4.7.4-2014.04 credits to Christopher83

If you have the KNOX bootloader installed, flashing this firmware will trip the KNOX flag to 0x1 which leads to a void warranty.


  1. Download Odin 3.10 
  2. Make sure you don't have the new bootloader (In Download mode you should not see text such as:
  3. Knox Kernel Lock: 0x0 or 0x1 / Knox Warranty Void 0x0 or 0x1)
  4. Download an older rom that does not contain Knox (e.g. *****MH2) for example.
  5. Flash it with Odin two or three times until you get in download mode Current Binary: Samsung Official / System Status: Official.
  6. Check if your baseband has changed to MH2.
  7. Factory reset your phone from recovery mode and DO NOT let it boot, enter Download mode. (When you choose reboot system now, immediatelly begin holding the Volume down and Home buttons together).
  8. Flash the rom with Odin as you normally flash a stock firmware.
