Hi,

Since i need to update my m8's firmware for flashing the new ViperRom I have to go back to stock.
Firewater isn't working and i'm not paying 25$ for sunshine. But now I i'm facing this problem; I dont have a stock nandroid backup matching my CID ( T-MOB003)(1.57.114.2). Is there an option for me to pick a different nandroid backup and if so which one should I pick? has to be 4.4.2 so i can OTA to 4.4.4

Thanks

You need a stock nandroid that matches your official tmob main version. You can NOT achieve that otherwise.

Google for the cid and matching main version number. It will bring on several hits for sure. Then for instance compare that number in my thread and download the corresponding nandroid backup and use it.

Chances are you've flashed TWRP which for some reason or another gets rid of your mainver id

Thanks for the response. That's sort of the problem. There isnt any information to be found on the web for my cid..

Flashing a different recovery will fix that?

No, it's been erased, you'd need to reflash firmware.

T-MOB003 is for T-Mobile NL (Netherlands) they're running x.xx.114.x. If you're still not on 4.4.3/4.4.4 then you're likely still running 1.57.114.2 or 1.57.114.x if there were smaller updates released for it...

Unfortunately I don't think there are any nandroids on here, a quick search doesn't turn up anything online either and I don't have the time to go in depth for NL forums etc. So it seems there aren't any available.

As for this:

There isnt any information to be found on the web for my cid..

The search for your CID main-version number took all but 1minute.
