    Default Help - I just blew my phone

    I just tried to upgrade my rooted sprint s3 phone to kitkat using the zip file and it would not boot. I tried to do a restore but the one I got to work was version 4.1.2 build vpbmd4. I need the zip files to get me to where I can use the zip file to get kitkat.

    I don't have access to the internet right now except the s3 or tab 3 so I need to work around that. Any help will be appreciated.

    An update - I found some zip files but they are old and no longer work. I also think I have a way connect my laptop to the internet for short periods of time so I should be able to run oden if I can get the needed files..

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't think there's any reliable way to flash this without a PC. This thead should help:

    [FULL RESTORE][TAR] Stock ND8 Odin FLASHABLE [4.4.2] - xda-developers

    Links to Odin here: [27.08.2013 LATEST] Odin 3.09, Odin 1.85 | All versions! | Samsung ROM Flashing Tools - xda-developers To flash KitKat, you probably need to use the latest version of Odin.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Thanks for the help. I downloaded the tar to my tab 3 and transfered it to the laptop. I was not able to find a copy of odin 3.09 but I had a copy of 3.07 on the laptop and used that. I have 4.4.2 up and running. Now I just have to rebuild the system. That will take a while.

    Question - what is the difference between 4.4 and 4.4.2???

    Thanks for the help.
