    Did I flash something wrong? My cell signal and 3g still works.

    Might be a dumb question because you mentioned it for the other method but will this particular method erase everything as well or will I keep everything such as saved games etc?

    This is supposed to be the same file that is being ota pushed to your phones. it is only an update and should not effect any of your apps or data.

    Did the method in post 2 about 2 hours ago. Working beuatifully but now i remember how much I hate how stock homescreen looks. Not being able to move the app launcher to where I want it in the bottom bar is very aggravating. So Back to Nova I guess. Guess its time to root to

    LOL. If you follow the second post correctly you'll be good. Its so simple youd have to actually TRY and make something go wrong for it to happen.

    Hello everyone. I flashed the return to stock rom and that worked out great. Then when I tried to apply the OTA I get the error along the lines of

    assert failed e:error in /tmp/sideloadpackage.zip
    (status 7)
    Did I do something wrong?

    it was very easy and it worked fine! Thank you!
    Hopefully this will make the phone a little smoother and less "clunky/slow". Lag time is annoying!

    getting the same error with the easy return to stock flashed in recovery. You may have to go with the old return to stock method in the same post. Still playing with it.

    Ok so someone explain to me how I can manually update my Sprint GS3? It's not rooted or custom ROM or whatever any other terminology out there is. It's straight stock, no hacks or weird sh!t. The OTA update hasn't hit at Fort Leonard Wood, MO yet and if there is a safe way to update the file without waiting I'd love to know.

    Just updated with method in post 2 and no issues so far. Much appreciated skunk.

    So my dumb question of the day is now that I'm updated, will I still get an official OTA notification to update? If so, what do I do then?

    Dumb question, but I have never had this problem before. I have no SD card, so where do I put the update.zip? I can't find the file in recovery.
