  1. Go to recovery Mode (press and hold Home + Power + Volume Up buttons) and wipe data/factory reset (pic 1)
  2. Register/Sig in in this page: http://www.sammobile.com
  3. Download this FIRMWARE and extract (unzip) the firmware file
  4. Open Odin
  5. Reboot phone in Download Mode (press and hold Home + Power + Volume Down buttons. Volume up next)
  6. Connect phone and wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
  7. Add the firmware file to AP / PDA (only file named .tar or .md5)
  8. Make sure re-partition is NOT ticked
  9. Click the start button, sit back and wait a few minutes (pic 2)

I guess you have to be registered to find the sprint firmware. But hey I'm going to get to this and see if it goes smooth. Don't forget about me, It's gonna be a while until I download this firmware.i love you bro.

I couldn't wait anymore and i did it. WE ARE ROOTED and on KitKat.

I would just like to say that you can fool me once, but you wont fool me twice. Good ridance cyanogenmod and every other unofficial firmware. I will NEVER use unofficial firmware nor will I EVER recommend it.

I am JustRootDontCustomRomIt, and as my farewell to XDA (you're all great), Dont use unofficial Roms, Just Root. Peace.
