Hello,

As you might have noticed – we finally released a new Galaxy Core build. The build was meant to be used on GT-I8260 variant, and was developed with this particular device in mind. In fact – we don’t even have a dual SIMย GT-I8262 variant.

Some users who installed this release onย I8262 reported that RIL is not working at all. We want to fix this issue, but weย can’t because… We don’t have this device.

We are looking for people with GT-I8262ย wanting to help us with this issue. If you know what the RIL, logcat, dmesg, etc. is, and you want to help us, please contact me: [email protected], I will instruct you how to do some diagnostics, and I hope we will be able to fix this issue together.

BTW. After we fix this issue, you will be able to use your dual SIM phone as a single SIM one, because Android 4.1 doesn’t support dual SIM natively. Real dual SIM support is comming soon in (probably) 4.4 release.

Thanks in advance for help.

Marcin

RELEASE for Galaxy Core
TWRP v2.7.1.0

New release (v2.7.1.0 20140701) of TWRP Recovery for Galaxy Core is here!

Compatible with both i8260 and i8262!

You can get it from our download page and flash it under Odin.

IMPORTANT NOTICE! We have discovered that Galaxy Core is affected by infamous Samsung EMMC bug and BY THE TIME WE ARE WRITING THIS NEWS our recovery is the only one for Galaxy Core which is not affected. By using the other recoveries (Phillz or CWM – especially Factory Reset/Wipe/Format feature) you are risking a hard-brick of your device. Also that’s why we provide only Odin package for now, because flashing anything using your current recoveries might cause hard-brick!

If you want to say thanks by donating us using PayPal, feel free ๐Ÿ˜‰

Changelog:

  • fixed bootloop when rebooting to recovery
  • fixed issues with Windows ADB drivers
  • merged TWRP changes

I’d be glad, if you shared links to our download page, instead of direct links to download.
Also would be great, if you wouldn’t create the mirrors ๐Ÿ˜‰
Thanks.

Thanks for job made by TWRP team.
