That would be here

Crazy? Some people think walking down the street muttering to yourself is crazy. I'll tell you what crazy is: Crazy is walking down the street with half a cantaloupe on your head, saying: "I'm a hamster. I'm a hamster." That's crazy.

Well, that's pretty much the way it works when you modify your phone.

I also wanted to do this and I did but it failed on 4.1.2 because I didn't find this thread until it was too late. I ended up going to 4.1.1, triped knox.

So ... I took a look at my uploads and realized I had created the package you seek a few weeks back for someone else.. here it is, the UCAMA4 4.1.2 Odin package minus the sboot and tz files... use this instead of the 4.1.1 package, flash and enjoy:
So using what Zen Arcade said there. Will I be able to go from 4.3 (Previously) to 4.1.1 (Current) to 4.1.2 using the "UCAMA4 4.1.2 Odin package minus the sboot and tz files"

Yes... you are on the MK6 bootloader though... you will get to 4.1.2 firmware, but you will have the 4.3 bootloader, and it will continue to report in DL mode (and perhaps elsewhere) that you have flashed custom firmware.

Tried this procedure but in ODIN says FAIL on first window:

<ID:0/004> boot.img
<ID:0/004> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/004> FAIL!
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

My phone was all stock running 4.3 OTA. The phone bugged out last night on me (stuck on Samsung Logo boot screen), did a Hard Reset/Factory Wipe several times to try and get it running again but it did not work. Phone still gets to Recovery Mode and Download Mode so it is not completely bricked? (Or is it ?). I tried doing this in the hope that I can get my phone working again but did not even get far. Am I doing something wrong or is my phone a goner?

TIA.
