You may want to check this thread out. I'm not sure, but you may have to reset the flash count also. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2507253

Since you're returning it, you should flash the full-wipe emergency recovery ROM image. That'll clear the custom status and remove all of your data.
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.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Yes, it's an image that you flash using ODIN. Yes, you can use the Verizon recovery assistant as well as Kies to recover. Your call.

Try this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2189539 . If that fails, google odin 3.09 it's widely available.
