After I updated my phone to 4.4.2 I lose service and have to restart my phone multiple times a day to get service back. I called T-Mobile and after resetting the phone they said they would replace it. Then I called Samsung and they said to bring it to best buy to have it reflashed. I can go there but I could also flash it via Odin at home. Now my question is, if I flash the stock rom via Odin will it trip the Knox counter? I read that it won't and I read that it can. I just want to make sure it won't before I flash it incase I have to have it repaired or replaced.

Did you update it officially or via a ROM flashed in a custom recovery?

I would try flashing the stock official update through Odin. That's pretty much what best buy is going to do.

That's what I was thinking. I just wanted to make sure that wouldn't trip the Knox counter going through odin. I wouldn't think so but I read somewhere when I did a Google search that someone said it did.

So long as it's a 100 percent stock ROM it shouldn't. It only trips if system partition or a custom recovery are detected.

After replacing my SIM card on Friday, it's been good. I figured I'd give it a few days before I said something this time. It's weird that it happened right after I updated to kit kat

I've had SIM related issues before. Sometimes an older SIM card won't work correctly with a system update. With a new card problems disappear. Let's hope this is the case for you.

in the same boat
Ever since I got the OTA Kit Kat my phone is in nightmare mode. Wifi wont stay on or ever even come on. Wake screen freezes and numerous other issues. I got same responses from TMO and Sammy and have spent 100 hours on here searching for HOW to fix. Ive used Odin 307 and 309 with various files CWM OUDHS, etc and never get anywhere. Just fails with "no PIT" errors every time.

Ive rooted phones before with NO problems , G2, and other HTCs, but Sammy driving me nuts.Im assuming its because I have 4.4.2

So your saying using Odin with a stock ROM will work? or errors again? samobile the site you need to pay to join right?

Ive seen THOUSANDS of people with SAME issues, various carriers as well as S4s and Nexus

Im so stinking frazzled from this
