Hi guys, hoping to get the Galaxy S5 tomorrow. So I wanna sell my Note 2.

I need to go back to stock to do this (not rooted, stock firmware)

I am currently running a 4.4 stock based custom ROM

I know with some Samsung's you can't downgrade after getting 4.4 firmware installed on your device.

Or can I download 4.3 firmware from sammobile and flash through odin without issues?


If this is the case. Would someone please Tell me a link to a 4.4 stock firmware I can flash through Odin please? Can't seem to find one.


PLUS any recommendations to prevent bricking my phone will be greatly appreciated!

Yes you can downgrade after a 'Custom' 4.4.2 to 4.3, not sure about official because it is still not available. Try flashing it with Mobile Odin Pro instead of PC Odin.

Note: Backup your all content and EFS as well to save signs of your phone.
