I used mudavos method to upgrade to mja without the bootloader. But I ran into problems, so Im trying to check what Ive done. The phone works fine. I went into download mode to check if I tripped the knox counter but I couldn't tell because the letters were too small Im old. This is my wifes phone so Im trying to check this when she is not paying attention. I already lost all of her text messages so shes convinced I broke the phone.

If you dont have the bootloader then only only thing you could do is use odin to either mdc, mdl, or mf9 and start from scratch again. You will lose every data so its the only way to get it properly fixed again.
