    Default Galaxy S3: Rooted and now having trouble flashing VZW roms??

    I bought a rooted gs3 on EBAY...

    It is running liquidsmooth rom.. I have tried flashing some other VZW roms (esp. want to try out kit-kat roms) and I get an error during the flashing process..

    See attached image...

    Did I get taken on Ebay??? Not sure what I am doing wrong...

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Are you doing a full wipe before flashing the zips?
    Wipe cache, dalvik cache, system and data before flashing any ROMs that aren't from the same devs or are a different android version

    Yes, I think I am doing the full wipes.

    But, what worries me is in the picture I attached:

    "This package is for "d2vzw" devices: This is a "d2spr".

    What carrier is the phone? You have to flash compatible ROMs. VZW ROMs won't work on Sprint phones and vice versa

    Is that what was on the eBay listing or what it says in the about phone in settings?

    d2spr indicates that it's a Sprint phone. Shut it down and pull the battery and you should find the Model number there - doesn't sound like it's an SCH-i535.

    If it's a Sprint phone the world isn't over - you can still flash ROMs, you'll just have to find the correct ones for that carrier.
