Yep, make sure your phone is recognized in the program when it comes up, takes a few minutes to start up and about 15 to run. Make sure you run the program as administrator.. Once you do this, your phone will be completely stock like you just took it out the box

i am instalink the mj4 now and it seems to be working.

for the updates i noticed that the instructions sayd to copy the files to the external sd. can't it be the internal sd, or does it really have to be the external one because i don't have an external sd right now.


and if it can't be the internal sd, then what file should i use to root whithout the updates, just the mj4?

just realised that was a stupid question. i found a long forgotten 1gb sd. does the CF-Auto-Root-hlte-hltexx-smn9005.tar.md5 file work on nabd or should i only upgrade to nab?
