    i have attempted to root my phone with odin. apparently i didnt use the right thing for my model (straight talk).

    my phone is displaying: odin mode, product name: SCH-S968C, Cusom binary download: yes (4 counts), current binary: custom, system status: official, qualcom secureboot: enable    (all in the top left corner) and in the middle of the screen firmware upgrade encountered an issue. please select recovery mode in kies and try again

    i tried to do what it said but when i went into kies recovery mode my phone didnt show up.

    sounds like you tried to flash the firmware instead of just root...........see if you cant just find the right root for it...then use odin to falsh it

    If you click the banner attached to my post, you'll find the "H2 to H1" package, assuming you have the Qualcomm model and not the Exynos.

    Merging this with the other thread.

    In the future, please don't post multiple topics of the same discussion. It confuses others :)

    It doesn't work on the Exynos? I Didn't know that. Oh yeah, recent development, the H2 is rootable without downgrade now, apparently something about the first recoveries that were tried to flash superSU to root wasn't working on d2tfnvzw as it did on d2vzw but recently the recoveries now are mounting and flashing everything correctly and now flashing superSU works for the H2 even with the patched kernel. Imagine that, lol, faulty recoveries the whole time, it is just now being discovered in the past week, no telling how many H2s have downgraded that didn't need, no telling when the recoveries could have started working properly.
