Lots of new stuff, please read the entire post!

Device support

Support has been added for the S4 and Note3 on the new Android 4.4 with the new bootloaders. This took quite some time and effort, as especially the Note3 has a number of new protections.

Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular and Canadian S4 and Note3 models are now also supported on 4.3. The S4 models were already supported on older versions, but Note3 support is completely new.

Note that I have not been able to personally test those American S4 and Note3 variants (so be sure to give feedback in the XDA thread). They will also most likely require another update to work on official 4.4 firmwares when those come out, so be sure to inform me (in the XDA thread) about those new firmwares when they become available.

Modem flashing

An often-reported issue with the latest family of Samsung devices is that flashing may freeze when protected partitions are being written to, resulting in a soft-bricked device. The modem partitions are an example of such protected partitions.

Code has been added that attempts to detect if those protections are enabled, and if so, will skip flashing the affected partition and emit an on-screen warning.

You can generally work around those protections by using Triangle Away to reset the binary status and counter (system status is not so important).

It is certainly still possible to flash complete firmwares and modems using Mobile ODIN, the conditions just need to be right.

Upgrading between Android revisions

It is not uncommon that if the you're upgrading to a new firmware with a new Android version that you need to flash bootloaders, trustzone, etc. before the firmware will boot. Mobile ODIN does not flash those partitions, so you need desktop ODIN for that.

A feature has been added to boot into download mode after the Mobile ODIN flash. You can use this to flash the new firmware (with EverRoot enabled), follow by a boot to download mode to flash a modified package with only the bootloaders (and trustzone and such, but not system), followed by a reboot to recovery to apply the CSC, finally followed by the full Android boot.

That way you can upgrade Android versions and bootloaders while staying rooted. Providing the new Android version doesn't actually break the included root, of course.

Other stuff

The included SuperSU has been updated to v1.89 with support for the new Samsung 4.4 firmwares.

A much reported issue regarding files on the external sdcard not being visible from Mobile ODIN should also be fixed.

Shouting at me

Please direct non-trivial discussion to the XDA thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1347899

Would it be possible / make sense to make a check box / menu feature before the actual flashing starts to be able to scan whether there are protected partitions and get an overview about those protected partitions? Just to see whether extra actions are neccessary before I even intend to start a flash.

Would it be possible to "integrate" Triangle away into Mobile Odin, like you do with SuperSU, just to have everything "at hand"  (I am not looking for a free addon, I have all apps which I use from you as a donate or Play version, which is providing you at least a beer...)

Best regards & Many thanks for your great work!

+Chainfire I have a small question , even though it has been asked a dozen of times ... Why isn't the GT-I9295 (The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (InterNational Version)) Unsupported , Doesn't it have the Same Hardware As The LTE GS4 International ? Does it differ From the GT-I9500 ? If you see my questions stupid please ignore me .

Hi, i ran into a small problem. After flashing my N9005 from NB4 to NB7 firmware (4.4.2) using MobileOdin with everroot (inject su binary but no mobile odin) and after i have reinstalled Mobile Odin PRO from play store, when i start it is says thet it can not determine the device moldel and exits. What ca i do. Thx.

Cristhian Mejia commented on 2014-03-09 at 23:08:

I've got a question, if I flash a firmware with no baseband or bootloader included using Mobile Odin, will this trip the Knox counter? I don't care much for the system status. A firmware for example would be Wannam Lite 4.4.2 for I9505 LTE.

bou3za hamid commented on 2014-03-09 at 23:13:

Update*** installed Djembey 4.4.2 based on NB8 using Odin Mobile. All worked really well. And 0x1 is my new Knox status.  

Malcom X commented on 2014-03-10 at 03:47:

Doesn't work on galaxy s4 sph L720 rooted KitKat 4.4.2 stock or o. Cynogenmod 11. Plus cynogenmod 11 is missing the option to move apps yo SD card. Totally out of topic but if any one can come up with a nightly fix hit me up add me and let me know thanks.
