How to Change your Galaxy S4 from Leaked Chinese Lollipop to official 5.0.1

If you are a Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500) user who tried the Chinese Android Lollipop 5.0 leaked version on your phone, you may have found that you cant flash the Latest official release of Android 5.0.1 (released for Russia and India).

if you download the release form SamMobile (we covered it yesterday), when you flash using ODIN the process will get stopped while writing the system image. If you want to flash the new official one you will have to flash a pit file also. The below screenshot will show you how you can do that. You may try to downgrade from Chinese 5.0 version to 4.4.2. And later upgrade to the new Lollipop version too.

Click on AP button and select 4.4.2 official file downloaded (link is available on the XDA forum link1).

Click on CP button and place CP file which basically a modem . you will found that in Chinese leaked firmware

Click on pit and select the adonis.pit file you downloaded

Take the phone to download mode (Turn off the phone, Press vol- + home +power to boot it to download mode) and connect it with pc.

Click on start.

Here is how you can use Odin to flash a new firmware

Open Odin v.3.09

Reboot Phone in Download Mode (press and hold Home + Power + Volume Down buttons)

Connect phone and wait until you get a blue sign in Odin

Add the firmware file to AP / PDA
