    Hi,
    I'm new here and I'm not sure if I'm posting to the right place but I need some help. I have a rooted Sprint Galaxy S3 running KitKat 4.4.2. I'd been trying to install CyanogenMod with no success.
    At some point I did a factory reset of the phone and decided not to continue with the CyanogenMod but I had ClockworkMod recovery on my phone and decided to restore to it.
    Immediately I started getting errors that gapps and a bunch of other apps stopped working...I couldn't do anything so I booted into recovery mode again and did another factory reset. Now I can't activate the phone. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Welcome to the forums.
    I would clear cache in recovery and do one more factory reset, and see if that helps.

    I did that - to no avail. Should I try to unroot it and reinstall the factory firmware?

    By reflashing a stock ROM via Odin, yes.

    I found a stock ROM but it's JellyBean not KitKat. Is it ok to flash an earlier version?

    If it is too far back, no. I can try to find a different site.

    Thanks for that. In my travels, I think I found what the problem may be - I need to restore my IMEI? I've been looking for a tutorial on how to do it with little luck. Could you help with that?

    Unfortunately, no. I have no idea how to do that.
