Howdy -- I was given a SGH-I747 formerly on AT&T. This was a hand-me-down from a coworker that doesn't know what the prior owner actually did to the thing.

It appears that the phone boot-loops for a bit until it lands in into ClockworkMod Recovery v6.0.4.7. The CyanogenMod logo appears at initial boot.

This recovery tool seems to have no external microSD card access. I already have ADB on my Win7 machine and was able to install a driver for the S3 to allow me to sideload via command prompt.

I attempted to do this with a copy of the stock ROM without root access.

Initially I was forced to update a line on the script to bypass the invalid number of arguments roadblock, but later encountered this:
Code:
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Installing update...
set_perm: some changes failed
E:Error in /tmp/update.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted.
I presume something has changed on the primary partition that it wasn't expecting, but I haven't the slightest idea where to go from here.

Thanks for the brainpower
