    Do you have a custom recovery installed?

    The only reason I ask is many times people who show a root method often include a custom recovery, usually for a couple reasons. 1. It may be required for the rooting process, and 2. Custom recoveries offer more options for your device.

    Could you link to the method you used?

    Try rebooting into recovery. Power off. Then hold volume up, home and power until you see the first Samsung logo and release. Take a photo with another device, and post it please.

    Which recovery picture does yours look like? Pick out the one in this guide: [Guide] [Info] Custom recoveries versus Stock. Is there a difference?

    That's weird you may need to reflash stock rom in order to accept an OTA.

    Since you have it rooted, why don't you just ROM the thing ? Instead of freezing carrier bloat, you can eliminate it. You can also get rid of TW and be running KitKat now, instead of waiting. Some ROMs even have OTA updates. I am using ViperOne. Of course, since I wouldn't get caught dead with a SameDung phone, you'll have to do some digging around on XDA developers and find the best one for you. But my experience dictates that most custom ROMs are better than stock.

    See if you can find the file on Samsung updates .com. Look for your model number. And download it.

    I had the same issue you have/had. The only thing that worked was this: [12/29] Restore for MJ5 --Doesn't trip Knox and optionally provides root-- - Page 56 - xda-developers

    I tried using just odin to flash stock MI9, it would not work.
    Who am I? Well sir, that's classified!
