    Default [Help] Accidental Virgin to Sprint Switch. (Galaxy s3) [4.3]

    So I decided I would mess around with my Galaxy s3 (4.3) and of course I clicked a few things I was not supposed to click. After a little I managed to soft brick my phone, but was later able to fix with Sprint (what a friend did for me). Most features do not work, I would like to know if anyone could help me through this and get me back to a stock Virgin Mobile 4.3. I don't know what you need but I will try to tell you what you need to know. And my friend was unable to help me switch back to Virgin just so some of you know..

    My once Virgin Mobile Baseband-L710VPUBMK5

    But now that I am on sprint it's.
    Baseband version-L710VPUCMK3

    I would like to thank anyone that could help me out with this because of how much I have screwed up.

    Welcome to the forums.
    I think if you flashed the proper ROM in Odin, that should fix everything. Now the question is where to get the files, as one of the biggest file sharing site Hotfile, was shut down a few months ago.

    Samsung updates .com used to be a good library. They got hit by the hotfile shutdown.

    Yes, that looks like the site that my friend got the ROM off of but it only has the MK3 and not the MK5..

    It's not a problem I will just have to keep searching and hopefully run across one that works for me.
    *EDIT* I have managed to find a file and have made it back to Virgin Mobile thanks for the help!

    Glad you are up and running again. Where did you find the file?

    Just flashing a Virgin Mobile ROM will not help you achieve what you're trying to do. That's an entire different process, one that I'm not sure whether I can talk about or not here so I won't. Not to sound like a ******, but Google is really your friend in this case.

    I tried running the file you linked. The process fails every time when flashing with odin while loading the system file. Any help would be appreciated.

    Can you provide me with a little info on what you tried to do and what happened before you needed the file.
    I needed the file when I accidentally changed it to Sprint when I loaded the wrong file off Odin.
    Now I can't help you much as I have not touched Odin or a computer since as I lost it to a HDD failure but I will give it a shot.
