    Default 4.1.2 to 4.1.1

    Hello. I am new to AC Forums. I have a non rooted Verizon gs3. I received the 4.1.2 update. It seems after that I had issues with my Bluetooth not turning on and also losing wifi connection at work. I spoke to a verizon guy at Best Buy he told me all he would do is perform a factory reset. I told him I already did that and it didn't fix the issue. I asked if there was a way to downgrade the os to a previous version. He said yes there is just google it. So off I went on my search. I found a good guide on doing just that. My phone didn't need to rooted but I would wipe all my data. So I downloaded the rom and used odin 1.85(which the guide recomended for flashing an older rom). Everything went smooth. Booted up with jb 4.1.1. My wifi at work was back but still no Bluetooth. Now here is were I have a problem. I can't seem to get the update for 4.1.2. Many messages through fb with samsung but they didn't offer much help. So I was hoping the AC Community would be able to help. Not sure what the cause is for my bluetooth issue also I again have issues with the wifi at work. I can connect but get no data thru. Thanks in advance.

    Actually my father was adopted. Lettau was name of the people who adopted them. His adoptive parents died many years ago.

    Here's another guide to downgrading your phone (and a lot of other things, as well *smile*):



    Take a look at "Step 5", it gives you the image to flash using Odin to get back to stock for sure. Or you can get the image here, if you know how to use Odin to flash it already:



    Look for the "COMBINATION" "VRBLK3" image.

    I flashed this image using Odin, and then was offered the 4.1.2 JB update after that.

    If one has already fleshed the stock downgrade firmware, what is the use of flashing the stock bootchain again?

    By firmware do you mean ROM? If yes, then I believe that ROM and bootchain/bootloader are two distinctly different entities. They certainly work together in a loose sense, but reflashing a locked bootloader to an unlocked one is a valid use case. Is that what you're wondering about?
