in the meantime, i used Kies / Tools / Firmware upgrade and initialization, i entered my phone model (SGH-I527M) and my serial number and this is what I have :

Initialized version : PDA:NE5 / PHONE:NE5 / CSC:NE5 (BMC)

Then this means that the phone must of had a OTA update to NE5 which is the newer kitkat and once you update to this you cannot go back to NA3 based rom or the MH1 based rom due to knox security has locked the bootloader from letting a person going back..if you can get kies ti work to put the NE5 based rom onto your ohone then it will operate normally again..the rom I gave you a link to will not work then it will boot the phone and all..but there is no network..wifi..and sound..I am trying at this time to get a NE5 dump of the system files but I am having problems with that at this time..if kies will not fix it then there is no fix at this time.

Sorry that I cannot help in this situation further as I cannot even update to the NE5 KK rom as my device status is custom and I cannot get it to officiak due to this knox crap..sorry about this..but I will keep looking to get this NE5 system dump files so I can make a flashable odin file out of them to help in this situation that quite a few people are in.

actually to be precize... this is what i found out and tested on my s3mini... i had it rooted and official stock and there was an update avialable for it trough odin and ota, in that time i had a virus on the pc i use (oops downloaded the first stupid link for odin 3.09) so i got stuck, and then i was tbinking something. i searched for the official stock recovery from samsung and downloaded it for my device and then i got into SuperSU and completly removed root. when done i got into my current recovery and flashed the stock recovery amd after that my system said it was official and was able to pull it ota


i dont know if it helps you just wanted to mention and share. you may not find a stock recovery so maybe pull it out of somewhere like the official firmware and download and then pull it out with a root file explorer.

I have tried that also..I had it to official status in both spots on the download page but that know warranty would always stay at 0xffffffff or something like and it still says my device is custom and you cannot get any updates and then I get that image size to big thing .but as soon as I get it to like 0x1 it works but I cannot get the update and there is no update for the kk on my carrier which is sasktel..been doing this stuff for quite a while but this newer kitkat update is sure throwing a monkey wrench into things.

But thanks for the info.

No problem on that part as i do not really want the kk update as i just wanted it to get a system image out of it and make it odin flashable..but the rooting would be the problem on the oifficial kk..but the custom rom here on the site i can use all of them for the mega 6.3 and still have kk that way.
