Hi there,

I recently was going to install a new rom on my phone... I ended up doing a system restore on settings... And now the phone will not update the MTP driver, I tried it on another computer nothing so far. It also wiped my back up file in recovery!

I also tried going into the registry do to the "UPPERFILTERS" fix but it did not work for me!

Any suggestions on how I can somehow fix this!


Thanks.

The phone won't update the MTP driver? You must mean PC. I can only assume that you are allergic to Google searches as good solutions are easily found.

Google search: reinstall MTP driver

Try disabling WMP temporarily as it often interferes. And if necessary you can remove the previous driver install in the registry. There are often two entries, one under HKLM and another under HKCU.

That depends on what you do with Odin. If you flash a full firmware, only your user files in the /data partition will persist. Your recovery would be wiped.

And a factory reset would delete user files.

The link you provided didn't work. Could you provide me with a step by step guide. I tried two steps using the registry and watched various videos it didn't help. I am very new to this lol.

how do you remove previous driver driver?

if does not work, I got firmware files from sammobile to unbrick. Would my own back up from Philz be able to be used by odin?

The link worked in the post preview, but XDA likes to automerge posts and apparently that broke the hyperlink as well. I've fixed the link. But all you would have had to do was copy and paste the link.

That concerns me because if you don't notice /can't correct a minor formatting error in a link then your phone is at substantial risk. What I mean is that Odin is dangerous if you don't pay close attention to details. Be careful.

It's not hard to reinstall a driver. Just uninstall the old driver and realize that WMP can interfere with the reinstallation. If only a step by step guide will do, you will find lots of spoonfed guides in the Google search results.

I don't use Philz, I find TWRP to be much better. But I doubt that you could use Odin to restore a Philz backup. You'd need to reinstall Philz. Then restore your backup from recovery mode.

I did check out your hyperlink lol I just googled searched it. I thought you sent a link not a google search. I went into three different step by step guides regarding the issue, it was just one of those days where basics things just didn't work out lol.

I got fed up so I did I ended up doing a full recovery I just wanted to avoid that process since I know there was a simpler method.
