    Default Downgrading to 4.1.1 Oden3 Problems

    Hello all,
    I am fairly new to Android after coming over from Blackberry, I just bought an SGH-I747M S3 and its locked to Rogers/Fido. After doing some searching, well a lot of searching I found a method of unlocking that requires me to downgrade from Android 4.3 to 4.1.1. I did a lot of reading and I think I am following the instructions to a tee but Oden3 keeps failing the "Download Screen" on the phone adds a new line of "Secure Check Fail: aboot" I've tried two different computers and several different cables and USB ports to no avail. I've also had a hard time finding stock ROMs since Hotfile is now shut down. If anyone could help I'd really appreciate it. Bellow is the log from Oden3:

    <ID:0/006> Added!!
    <OSM> Enter CS for MD5..
    <OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable..
    <OSM> Please wait..

    You can't downgrade from 4.3
    Knox blocks any attempt to install different firmware for "security" reasons

    Is there anyway to accomplish what I am trying to do with a root and then a downgrade? Like I said I am quite new to this and thanks for the quick reply

    Not sure what you're trying to accomplish but there is currently no custom recoveries for the 4.3 firmware so even if you were rooted there would be no way to flash a custom ROM.

    I guess I should probably do some more reading because only half of that really made sense to me. What I am trying to do is unlock the phone so I can use it on Bell. In my reading I found a how-to that used a service menu on the phone but I had to be on stock 4.1.1 firmware for it to work. I just thought I'd save a little money, have a little fun and learn something in the process Thanks again
