My problem is that I cannot find the 4.3 firmware anywhere. Google gave me 4.2, but I would rather have 4.3 if able. I didn't see it here on xda either.
My mega is the at&t i527 model. If anyone would be kind enough to upload 4.3 you would have a lowly college students thanks.
I have rooted and downgraded firmware before. So thankfully I should be ok on that end.
If you can get calls, your not bricked.
Sounds as if maybe you have installed an app of some sort which may be affecting your OS. Have you tried a full factory reset, even after your upgrade?
Maybe go into your 3e recovery and clear the cache?
