Default Asking Best buy or AT$T to image older rom

I see some mention of this as a solution, although it look some it's only for those that downgraded to NB5.

.I am trying to understand what would happen if AT&T or BB try to image an older ROM on to the 4.4 leak that some of us are RUNNING, including me.

Assuming AT&T / BB agree to try, has anyone had success this way?

I took my Note 3 in to BB yesterday. I'm running the Leaked MLG 4.4.2.
The Samsung dudes were unable to get NB4 to load over the leak.
My BB didn't even have the NC2 (official KK release) in their system yet.
Going to try a different BB tomorrow.

ATT rep told me that if they attempt to restore a 4.3 image over KK it will brick the phone so they won't do it.

Because my phone wouldn't boot when I brought it in they couldn't confirm the OS version. I had to sign a waiver acknowledging my phone might become a brick and releasing them of liability before they would agree to restore my phone.

I may wait till they have the official ROM in their system and then go in to get my leaked version updated.

there is a working method to get the official OTA to update on your phone, Miata just posted a thread about how to do this after restoring to MJ5 and taking the NB4 updated.

he has a file that you flash and after that the OTA update should not fail anymore. Yall should try it out instead of waiting on BB or Att to do something that you can do.
