    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.

    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.
