That neatly sums it up, and glad to know it's not just me beating my head against the wall.
Does anyone know if Odin will let me flash the previous release (G730VVRUAMI9), or does the locked bootloader prevent flashing even these official releases? I'm trying to download it now, but at over a gig, it's going to take me several tries, and that's a lot of work (and bandwidth) to invest only to find out it can't be loaded.
If I can fall back to the old firmware, I can root again with Kingo and then, presumably, edit build.prop to stop it from pestering us about "updating" to the new firmware.
