Default [Q] Question about Stock 4.4.2 and flashing

Hey guys got a couple questions see below.

1. My first question is, Is there a way to Flash Stock 4.4.2 without using a computer and odin, my laptop doesn't read my phone, ive done installed and updated drivers, and everything. is there a way to flash it like you would a custom rom. I know i read that i could use Mobile Odin Pro, but at the same time i read that its not to safe to use that, and tbh not sure why you have to pay for it... i know there cracked Mobile odin pro and i havent tried it yet.

2. My next question is, is there a simple way to flash my sprint s3 to another career, by flashing a rom that will flash it to another carier not sure if this makes sense lol, basicly my Phone was flashed to Page plus, and i accidentally updated it and lost the flash, and i dont really want to pay to get it flashed again, is there a real easy way to flash it with with a custom flashing rom, and if my laptop ever reads my phone is there a easy way to do it with a laptop besides paying for it( not looking for cracks). My phone number for Page plus and account is still active.

3. My last question is im looking for an awsome rom, One that does not overheat my phone like Hellfire does, ive tried hellfire, CM(also nighty), Vanir, PAc rom, Carbon. and others to.

talking about cracked apps is taboo and no you have to use a computer and what usb cable are you using? do you have the stock usb cable that came with your phone? and you can't use Mobile Odin to flash ND8 stock it won't work at all

Stock ND8 and or any Rom based on TW and as long as you don't have your screen turned on for a long time it shouldn't Over Heat...

I have the stock sub cable and also a more expensive cable. Sometimes it does read and sometimes it doesn't,

Can I backup my stock Rom before flashing a custom rom, I mean I've tried it through Phil's recovery and find that once I restore it using Phil some apps and things don't work correctly.

What's a rom you would recommend.

I would recommend Tribute Rom or Wicked X 8.0.....and with the back ups make sure you have the latest Philz recovery which should be 6.48.4 and before each backup wipe cache and dalvik cache then your backups should work flawlessly

If you're already on the ND8 or NDC bootloader, then you can flash the stock (although rooted) ND8 or NDC ROM through custom recovery like the latest PhilZ. I'm guessing you're not, though.

Mobile Odin had had its uses in the past, just not handy with more recent versions of TouchWiz.

v2.0 flashable version now posted near the bottom of the first post of v2.0 FLASHABLE-3Minit 1000+ Batteries for Conquest:Singularity v8 & v1.0 for NDC/ND8..

[BATTERY] Plasma Battery! 🆕🆒🆓 & wickeddecimalbarwide_colors, also available through the 3Minit Battery Mod, #22 in the Users folder

Charging still shot

Here's the thread for flashing to Page Plus. I haven't done it, I'm on Sprint. I was having a lot of trouble getting my S2 on Page Plus. For phone it wasn't too bad, but I could never get data on and things were getting confusing with conflicting information, several third party programs on the PC, needing a donor phone, etc.
