    That's because it wants to update to MB1 now.

    Correct both updates came within about a week of each other.

    I did not realize that there were two updates. It would be nice if the updates from Sprint had a useful "about" to say what they are. Anyway, I looked back through this thread and did not find specifics on how to go from MA6 to MB1. Do I just let that update itself as it is a baseband update and not an OS update? Is that ok to do with a rooted/stock setup? Post #126 makes me think that this is the case but I thought I should ask as I really don't know.

    Thanks again.

    This should do you right...

    If you are Rooted and have custom recovery this is for you.

    This is the Full Stock MB1 Pre-Rooted in a zip file. You would flash these files like you would any other ROM. The Rom and firmware (radio) are 2 separate zips.
    Please thank freeza in his xda thread.

    1. Download files and put them on you external or internal sdcard.
    2. Wipe cache, wipe dalvik, factory Reset
    3. Flash Firmware
    4. Flash ROM
    5. Reboot

    Odexed MB1 Zip

    Deodexed MB1 Zip

    MB1 Firmware/Baseband/Modem zip

    Finally got around to update rooted stock phone to MA6...problem. Did a dirty flash of firmware and Odexed Rom, firmware took but Rom didn't. Deleted downloaded Rom and re downloaded it and did a another dirty flash of odexed. It went thru but when rebooting I get just the samsung logo and it freezes. Did a CWM backup before updating and can get into recovery. Do I start over and do data/factory reset or? What is my next move?

    The data reset right now will most likely fix your issue of being stuck on the Samsung screen.

    Perhaps a bad download. Restore your backup an redownload the ROM and try it again. You are flashing the modem 1st?

    Not a brick. Change the settings to not look at the md5. Or download the ROM and reflash it.

    If all else fails... restore your phone back to stock and try again.

    OK getting in over my head. this was my only backup which is on ext sd card and now can only get phone into recovery. change settings to not look at md5, download rom and reflash or return to stock...are these all done thru adb (which I'm just figuring out) or is there another way?

    In twrp recovery there should be an option in settings to disable md5 check when restoring your backup. I'm not sure about cwm though.

    To return to stock go to the following thread...

    If I am stock rooted, can I just install stock recovery and the ota update will work? If not, I am on lj7, so would I need to update to MA6 first then update to MA1 or can I just go from Lj7 to MA1?
    Apologies in advance if my question is confusing.

    I'll update them but if you are going to add custom recovery you won't have to update to MA6 first. If you use the method on post #2 of the MB1 thread. It is complete ROM.

    Only if you are on stock recovery with no root (method in post #1) will you have to update to MA6 first.

    Freeza had pulled the links for the full ma6 roms. So just go to my thread to update to MB1 and flash the full MB1 ROM and firmware in post #2 and you should be up to date. Like I said, you don't have to be on MA6 to use it.

    Thanks for the links to the radios. I'm using TPR, which is MB1 based, but my radios were still LJ7. Updating was a breeze. Maybe it's unrelated, but my cell signal is much stronger at my house now.

    Are these files (ROM, modem, and kernel) compatible with both the 16GB and 32GB versions of the S3? I saw in the Quick Return to UNROOTED STOCK WITH FLASH COUNT RESET thread on another Sprint GS3 forum where there are separate 16GB and 32GB downloads. Is that just because of the flash count reset? I don't see separate downloads in any of the other custom ROM threads.

    Yes. These are straight up flashable regardless of size. The ones you are talking about are not flashed in recovery. They are flashed in Odin.
