Stock Rooted FC14 Update for the Epic 4G Touch Available
Samsung Epic 4G Touch owners, begin celebrating! XDA Senior Member Calkulin has posted the leaked FC14 4.0.3 firmware, stock and rooted with busybox installed, along with a de-odexed version and the FC14 modem.
The developer warns that users installing the update must flash both the firmware file and the FC14 modem in the same ClockworkMod recovery session because after installation and rebooting you will no longer have CWM recovery. The developer also notes that a factory reset and data wipe is recommended, and he has included a flashable zip that will guarantee all partitions are formatted properly.
Shortly after Calkulin‘s original post, XDA Senior Member qbking77 posted two youtube videos regarding the update—an installation guide and a review of the update. If that sounds like something you’d like to take advantage of, you can check them out here.
All the downloads and information can be found in the original post here. Best of luck to those who attempt to install it!
