For some reason my version says mi9 instead of mj5. I completed all steps except step 10 as I wanted to at least get back to nb4. Any idea on what may have happened???

I have used those steps twice to get my phone back to MJ5. They work. There is either something your missing or you have upgraded to something different and are having issues going back.

but it does work.

Yes all files less the Mega one which is just a mirror to the MI9 fix anyway.

Once you're on a new build its impossible to downgrade because the bootloader is locked. So sorry to say you're stuck. The builds ending with MJ5, and NB4 are android 4.3 jellybean and aren't bad at all! The 4.4 NC2, and MLG have quirks.

The restore to MJ5 thread is here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2559715

MI9 is Odin flashable and available here http://www.mediafire.com/?jmypf8ggtxu1a61
It's only good if you're still on MI9.

There is no restore method for any 4.4 versions. Just some modified NC2 or MLG roms available.
