I'm having trouble getting my Cricket Samsung Galaxy S III back to stock. It's currently on the 4.4.2 ROM from Samobile.com, and it won't pick up the Cricket network. So that's why I'm trying to go back.

I'm using Odin v3.09, but trying to flash to 4.3 keeps failing.

Look, I know this is the Sprint version forum, but I'm at my wits' end here. You guys seem to know what you're doing; that's why you develop for Android daily.

Here's a log from Odin;

Also, the phone says "SW REV CHECK FAIL : Fused 2 > Binary 1".

Once on the 4.4.2 bootloader, your can NEVER Odin an older version. If it succeeded, it would've bricked your phone. You can flash any to You like, but never Odin a stock ROM earlier than 4.4.2.

Alright, I learned that the hard way. My phone works fine now on 4.4.2 for some odd reason; might be because I added the APN correctly.

Anywho, if I shouldn't use Odin, what should I use to flash with now? I wanna root 4.4.2 so I can use TriangleAway and get rid of KNOX.

You can use Odin to flash the latest Philz Touch Recovery and use its re-root in its settings. You can use Odin, you just can't every Odin anything older than ND8. You can Odin anything else that's not a stock ROM as normal.
