    When I reflash to MJA using Odin, I do not lose root and maintained TWRP recovery. I have done this several times (went to MK2 and back). Not sure why, because according to all I'm reading here, that should be the case. I'm trying to get back to complete stock without losing my data.

    I'd appreciate any feedback. I'm cool with MJA, flashed hotspot and current set up but plan on leaving my S4 in rooted stock ROM for now, and I would like to be able to take advantage of updates as they roll out.
    Try this:

    BIGSAMDA1ST,

    Thanks for sending this along. It's the same file I have been using to reflash. If you have any other ideas, please send them along.

    Thought I would chime in here again..

    definitely re-flash your mk2 firmware back to stock before doing the MAE upgrade.

    I had the rooted MK2 with the hotspot mod... reverted back my services.jar and services.odex back to the originals... but it still barfed on the upgrade.

    The fix that worked for me after I tried to upgrade to MAE with rooted MK2 was to just simply re-flash the MAE modem firmware only ... everything works now.
    (I should have re-flashed the MK2 Modem only before attempting the Kit-Kat/MAE OTA update...)

    gonna slap the hotspot mod back in there as well..

    Kit Kat is sitting on my phone waiting for me to hit update.
    Should I go back to the MJA stock via ODIN prior to updating to Kit Kat? Or is Kit Kat ok to update in root.

    Quick question......I have MK2 (from an OTA)..... I am rooted successfully. All I want to do is get the Hotspot. Do I ONLY use the HotspotMod-MK2 above to obtain the Hotspot to work? No installing of the MJA and then the MK2 as you stated above. Only the HotspotModMK2 above. I want to keep it simple. Many thanks!!!!

    I lost my wifi today after doing the MK2 OTA upgrade. I had been rooted, but I unrooted before the upgrade. I tried the MJA and MK2 flashing of the modem method but that failed. Flashing with the NAE-ModemOnly firmware fixed my WiFi. I'm very thankful for the info provided here.
