    I edited my post indicating the exact update file I used based off of one of Skunk's links to XDA. The file was the same exact size, and the filename differed by simply a few numbers at the beginning (12345filename.zip versus filename.zip).

    It's entirely possible that the files are different and if so, my humblest apologies.. I literally flipped a coin and just looked on my phone to find that I didn't use Skunk's first file...i used the update file on the XDA thread.

    No harm no foul, I flashed dirty and got the same effect. Thanks for the heads up and letting future flashers know!

    will this delete anything? I assume if not phone should have all settings, programs etc. like it would if it were a over the air update?

    It depends on how you do it. If you are stock and unrooted and use the instructions in post 1, you shouldn't lose anything.

    If you are rooted with a custom recovery and use instructions in post 2. You will lose data if you wipe data/factory reset. If you don't wipe data/factory reset you won't.

    Quick question, in your OP you state:
    "Download the following update zip and place it on your external sd. Go to settings/security and make sure unknown sources is unchecked."

    ****************

    Shouldn't this be:
    "Download the following update zip and place it on your external sd. Go to settings/security and make sure unknown sources is unchecked."

    Just want to make sure before I take the plunge.

    ***************

    Two questions if you know, (1) I did a non root style "toggle on/off shutter sound tweak" by billard412's because I am completely non-rooted stock - located at this link:



    Do you think I will lose this mod? And if I do this MA6 upgrade and happen to lose the shutter sound tweak, is there anything stopping the same tweak on MA6? In other words, will I be able to redo the toggle shutter sound tweak. I would hate to lose that feature because of the MA6 upgrade which seems really minor.

    (2) do you think there will be another upgrade to 4.2.x? As I am thinking of rooting but I want to stay as stock as possible. I only need rooting for a few programs.

    Thanks So much!

    I don't know for sure if it will make a difference either way. On the first gs3 update that came out, the update failed for me until I finally unchecked it. Then it worked. I have left it in the instructions every since. Others have told me that it worked for them leaving it checked...

    I have no Idea if the mod will stick through the update. I have never operated an unrooted device since the og epic. It is possible that the update will not work as your phone has been modified. I just don't know... However it will not hurt your phone to try. It will succeed or fail. If it fails, it will do nothing to your phone. Just reboot and you will be fine.

    (2) do you think there will be another upgrade to 4.2.x? As I am thinking of rooting but I want to stay as stock as possible. I only need rooting for a few programs.

    The gs3 will most likely get updates all the way to KLP (Key Lime Pie). After that I'm not sure.

    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.


    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

    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: . 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.

    I tried both of these.

    I tried the firmware first and that was the error.

    Did not try the odex or deodex. Should I do one of those first?

    sakhari8...Skunks method seems to be pretty bulletproof compared to the one I posted. Mine worked great for me and for others on XDA, but not a couple folks here. Maybe it doesn't like the files...or maybe it could be your version of CWM Recovery. I'm on a later version than you are.

    Try redownloading the file. It could have been corrupted.

    Sorry I am a dumb---.

    I was trying to install "ac3e74a5a71c.update_SPH-L710_LJ7_to_MA6" instead of "Galaxy-S-fre3-MA6FirmwareModemAIO".

    All is good now. I don't remember downloading the LJ7 to MA6.

    Shut off phone. Press volume up, power and home button at the same time. As soon as you see a flash, let go of the buttons. This will put you in stock recovery. Using the volume bar to select and power button to activate, select update from external storage. Choose the file you previously put there. Push your power button. Your update will begin.



    Thanks for the help...It worked like a charm

    Dazed is not planning to update his ROM to MA6. There is really nothing to it. This update doesn't do much. Just flash the modem/firmware and the kernel and stay on his ROM. The firmware and kernel will fix the security issues. The ma6 room has issues that I find unacceptable.

    I flashed WS 2.0 last night. After reading your post I flashed the firmware even though the baseband version ended in MA6. There was no change in the baseband version or kernel. Perhaps Dazed already updated this on WS 2.0. Any ideas?
