    Default Re: Your Way to Update to MA6

    ? here: Is there any way to simply update from rooted stock LJ7 to stock MA6 if you have CWM recovery installed? The only option is flashing an entire full new stock ROM?

    I remember updating my stock rooted EVO would be done by simply downloading the OTA to external card, reboot and go into AMON/CWM/etc recovery, flash the OTA file manually which would upgrade, reboot, then reboot into recovery and do a re-root.

    You can certainly give it a try but really it's pretty darn painless.

    Just want to make sure because I'm rooted. I can just flash the files in the second post using twrp and boom updated to 4.1.2.

    Yes. Flash one of the roms and the firmware/modem.

    So, why is SpintCare telling me that there have been no new official announcements about any OTA coming to the SGS3?

    Well, I went ahead and gave it a whirl....here's what I did:
    FYI: I'm running CWM Recovery v6.0.1.2

    1. Copy Stock LJ7 to MA6 update to external sdcard...Here's the update file I used: Goo.im Downloads - Downloading update_SPH-L710_LJ7_to_MA6.zip. It was the same exact size as Skunk's first file he posted a link for, just a little different file name with all the numbers taken off. It's about 158MB or so.
    2. Shut off phone. Press volume up, power and home button at the same time and go into your CWM Recovery.
    3. Install update via your copied update zip file from external sdcard. This takes about three to four minutes to fully run.
    4. Once complete, go back and wipe cache directory.
    5. Go to Advanced and then wipe the dalvik cache.
    6. Choose to reboot phone. CWM will warn you that stock recovery has been chosen, do you want to make sure to ignore that change, keeping CWM. Say yes.
    7. CWM will then say that root might be removed, do you want to fix?...say yes.
    8. The phone reboots...you'll see the android is upgrading/optimizing apps and then you're back to your lock screen.
    9. It'll take a bit of time...but my SuperSU was still present and accounted for. Wifi tether worked fine (with encryption), root programs worked without issue, all was good to go.

    Not sure if i'm missing anything or not, but if i'm rooted with stock rom and CWM, I'll have to reset my whole phone and flash these files? if i do have to do so i can just back up everything i have now and restore without a problem? or could i do this via OTA using the OTA RootKeeper app and no problems should come up?

    This is the Full Stock LJ7 Pre-Rooted in a zip file. You would flash these files like you would any other ROM. The Rom and firmware (radio) are 2 separate zips.
    Please thank freeza in his xda rthread.

    1. Download files and put them on you external or internal sdcard.
    2. Wipe cache, wipe dalvik, factory Reset
    3. Flash Firmware
    4. Flash ROM
    5. Reboot

    See my above post. I was rooted with stock rom and had CWM recovery...as you are. I was hoping to avoid flashing a full rom over the top and having to either do a dirty flash or erase and restore. It looks like the LJ7 to MA6 upgrade works fine with CWM.

    Must of missed that. Im watcing the video QBKing77 has posted, so far so good How To Manually Update Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 to MA6 OTA - YouTube

    UPDATE: seems like what you said is similar to the video, everything so far seems to be working, still rooted (during the process) and everything seems to be booting up fine. I'll post another update once it is finish booting up
    UPDATE2: everything works fine

    Has anybody had problems loading these files to their sd cards? It keeps failing for me.

    Anyone have any thoughts as to whether this would work with TWRP? I assume it would, as long as TWRP will give you the warnings and options in steps 6 and 7, below.

    Works with TWRP. Or, I should say, the firmware flash works with TWRP.

    I had no problems Skunk's instructions (I'm stock rooted with CWM recovery). I did a dirty flash and everything seems fine, battery useage is normal, CWM and SU are still present. No warnings to fix either.

    Just flash it. No wipes needed for the firmware only.

    Firmware (Modem or Radio) is completely independent of your rom and therefore can be run on any rom. They have little to do with each other.

    Shoulda went to my go-to site for noobs (such as me).

    "The radio / baseband / modem is a firmware that allows your phone to connect to the wireless network. This firmware controls basic low-level functions of your phone like cell-network connectivity, Wi-Fi, and GPS. Oftentimes an updated radio / modem will help with signal strength issues, battery drain and more. The radio / modem firmware is specific to each device and carrier and is flashed via custom recovery."

    In all seriousness though, thanks Skunkape. Also I highly recommend that site to anyone who is new to this stuff.

    This is my first time flashing a ROM after rooting, so forgive the noobness, but now that I have flashed this update, will I still get an OTA notification? If so, what would I need to do in order to ignore it?

    You shouldn't get the update notification of you flash the Rom in the 2nd post.
