Surges method and Gigilies method don't mix.
Surges method is an upgrade to NC5 with no going back. Gigilies is so you can go back and forth. .
You will probably need to wipe using Surges wipe all or wipe and not wipe data. Then re-root using Towelroot. Install Safestrap 3.72 so you can run NC5 roms.
Nope. Progress bar got almost to the end while doing system.img.ext4 and then failed. The message windows is same as above except add this between the tz.mbn line and the Complete(Write) line:
<ID:0/013> boot.img <ID:0/013> recovery.img <ID:0/013> persdata.img.ext4 <ID:0/013> system.img.ext4
Actually, you can go back to MK2/MJ7 after using either method now.
Just use the NC5 odin tar instead, if NC5 doesnt work then its not likely NC2 will. Someone recently had the same issue as you and found their solution by upgrading their Samsung drivers to the newest version. I would recommend that.
Alright I tried updating the drivers, and still nothing. Got the install exe for the drivers directly from Samsungs website, version 184.108.40.206 and tried flashing ALL_VZW_I545VRUFNC5_I545VZWFNC5_1151670_REV06_user _low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5 again through Odin. It got through system.img.ext4 this time, but failed on NON-HLOS.bin. Then I just tried it again and it got past there and made it to hidden.img.ext4 and failed. I'm gonna try it with a different port/cable real quick and update after that's done, but anyone got any ideas if that still fails?
EDIT: IT BOOTS! I swapped out the cable and the USB port and the file flashed no problem! I'm looking at the settings screen and I'm running NC5 with version 4.4.2! Time to enjoy that my phone works again finally, and then try towel root. Thank you both so much!!!
