Now it won't update to 4.3 OTA and it constantly driving me crazy with messages to update.
I tried to use odin to flash the stock firmware and it keeps telling me that the PIT partition failed. I found the appropriate pit file and it still failed. I'm looking to see if you guys have any ideas before I just throw the phone in the garbage and buy a new one. Thanks.
Have you tried the Verizon recovery tool? Plug your phone into your PC and open the virtual CD drive that appears.
If all else fails, you could install the MJ7/4.3 factory image from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2357235
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock MJ7, now rooted!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.
VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
